My first time to Yuma and I was impressed with this place.
It is the liquor/wine/beer store, but I think they had more beer than liquor. Tiny but they crammed a lot in.
They have a good selection of domestic micros from all over the country and small number of imports. The back wall (30 feet) is all beer in coolers and they have the same amount on the shelves. I found The Abyss on a corner shelve... I'd been looking for it in stores literally across the country (Portland, Atlanta, Little Rock, St. Louis and others). Bonus points for that.
They also had a beer tasting of SanTan Brewing Co. beers while I was there. That prompted me to get a couple sixers of those that I otherwise would not have.
Service is laid back, but one of the guys offered some suggestions based off what I like; though I usually do not need help finding beer.
Yuma is not a beer mecca or destination, but if you find yourself there this is probably the best place to get some good beer.

Valley Liquor is the best bottle shop in Yuma, AZ. Guy behind the counter is super friendly and will do special orders.

The only negative thing I will say is you need to watch the dates of the IPAs on the shelf. Other than that it is essential shopping in Yuma.

This place has a huge beer selection. Guy behind the counter is also very nice the only down side is the size of the store. If you are in the Yuma area this is a great place to stop is not the only but it is the best selection since there are no micros around here

Great selection of beers.
Some of the many Breweries available(that I remember) :
Oskar blues
Avery
Dogfishhead
Bells
Alesmith.

I am not sure if there are other places in Yuma with this selection, but if you love craft brew and are in town check this place out.

First off let me just say that this place is by far a must stop shop if your here in the Yuma area. THERE IS NOT ANY OTHER PLACE THAT YOU WILL FIND WITH A BETTER SELECTION IN A 200 MILE RADIUS! No joke from the average BMC's to even 3 liter growlers of Stone Dbl bastard. They have a decent selection of east coast beers as well. Even found a case of Hopslam there once. Of course they have all of the major west coast brews as well. And if they dont have it they are willing to order it. Most of the selection is a little on the pricey side. That is more or less because of the owner jacking up the prices. Also I have found some pretty outdated stuff in there too due to the owner as well not having knowledge of his products. But over all this is a dam good beer store that is in the middle of nowhere.

Great selection of beer and now they've added even more doors for more great craft beers. They just added nine doors for more beer selection and by far the best in the Yuma area. Also beer tasting are doing every so often to get more people into trying all the craft beer world has to offer. Now with the Beer advocate ratings on beers it makes it easier to select a good beer that you know people who know craft beer have had and rated for you. All in all Valley Liquor has a great selection and being in Yuma that is really cool.
