This place is awesome - the best selection I've seen anywhere. I have one gripe:
The prices are often labeled incorrectly, or sometimes not labeled at all.
SEVERAL times now (this store has not been open long mind you) I've had beers ring up higher at the register than they were labeled on the shelf. Sometimes it's ended up working in my favor, as they've discovered the shelf price was the incorrect of the two but still gave me the cheaper price...but even in those times one would have to be as diligent as I am (now) about looking at the receipt, unless one was adding up numbers while picking up brews throughout the store (which I do). In my most recent visit my total was a good 20% higher than it should have been until I went back and pointed it out.
Then there are times when I see a beer that interests me, and there is no price tag. Call me crazy, but if I owned a beer store, when I put a beer on the shelf, I'd put a price tag to go with it. This has cost them at least a few purchases by me.
Kudos to BotW for the new customer appreciation cards - $30 in one trip for just one stamp is a bit ridic but I'll take what I can get. (Spending $150 to get a 15% discount isn't much of a deal, esp when you need to spend at least $30 each time). Makes me feel like they appreciate customers with more money than me (which I'm sure they do, I would too).
Overall this place is awesome, but seems like it could benefit from some beeradvocate management, i.e. someone who REALLY cares about all that great beer they have in there, or at least understands how much we all care about it.
