I love this place for 2 reasons.

1, Mike...he has his own corner where he sells his personal stash.
2, Maria...she's so friendly & personable.

The family is inviting & loving. The selection isn't the best but at times you can find a rare bottle or 4 but that's because of Michael. The location is awkward & the parking is very limited. But when I'm looking for a rare batch or hard to find beer, this is a must visit! But don't ask for opinions because some of the staff doesn't drink at all. So use your own judgement & research when buying.

Maria's is the bar that I credit with jump starting my craft beer addition and hobby. It was a cool night several years ago when I went to Maria's for the first of many times and discovered Three Floyds Zombie Dust on draft for the first time. That was all I needed to become hooked.

I've been back several times since then and each time they have a complete different set of beers on draft displayed on their epic chalkboard as well as a giant bottle list. The front area is a liquor store and always has great craft beer choices. I highly recommend Maria's during the week but be prepared for madness on the weekend with crowds, etc. Cheers to Maria's and everything that they do!
