Our homebrew club stopped in here on a recent trip to Iowa City. I've been here many times before, but on this occasion Doug "the bier guy" was gracious enough to give us a tour of the place, which included all sorts of nuggets of history. The shelves, and the cellar, are lined with varieties of beer from all over the world spanning numerous styles. The staff and the management are extremely knowledgeable about beer.

Honestly, I think this is probably one of the best beer stores in the country. I've been too many in the Midwest and this by far takes the cake.

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.

Have stopped in here quite a few times on road trips and always found something worthwhile. Reasonable prices, great selection, plus the added convenience of other items... including glassware. Heck, they've sent stuff to me out of state as well (glassware). Love this place. Faithful customer when driving through.
