I have used this store online for ordering, so this review does not apply to the physical location very well.

The selection is very good, covering most important imports and a lot of american beers as well. The selection I received felt fresh, and it seems they keep it fresh as they have a high volume of sales.
The website is kind of poor, you cannot order directly and have to call; the beer list is not updated frequently, so a lot of stuff listed is out, and I would suspect they have a lot of stuff that is not listed.
Despite that, service is stellar, courteous and efficient.
Prices are very good, and shipping is as inexpensive as I have seen.
Now, I always check if they have it before ordering from someone else. (728 characters)

A small grocery downtown.
They seemed to have a good selection. Nothing blew me away though. Its a grocery store so you can get some foods of course.
I'd recommend stopping if you are in the area. (196 characters)

Great place, a real surprise in Iowa. Lots of great beer to choose from. Most of the American craft beers are in the cooler so they are ready for drinking! (157 characters)

It's a little cramped, but it has a good selection and you are going to get decent service. Definitely worth going to if you are in the area. (142 characters)
