4.5/5  rDev +10.8%

A good spectrum of imports and American craft brews. Congenial and personable staff, reasonable pricing for the quality and location. Enjoyable regular tasting sessions on Friday afternoons. A clean and attractive physical plant, well stocked. (There are stacks of economy domestic cases tucked in the corner, and a rotating selection of six packs and singles in the cooler.) The shelves are well laid out, well organized, and clean. Easy to find and convenient parking. For the size of the store, I consider it a jewel.

The place is really top notch.
The craft beer section is divided into three tall shelves each one having different sections like Trappist beers, abbey beers, ciders, etc.

They also have coolers with packs and a section with more stacked packs uncooled in one corner.

If you do not have an American license, don't bother showing them the international because they won't take it. Take your passport instead.
Additionally, make sure, if you're European, to explain that the format dates are reversed.

I went there for the first time without my license and I had to go back home for my passport. Once I got my passport, I had to reassure them I was 21 because of the switch Europeans do with the day and the month.

Other than that, outstanding place with am extremely extensive section of wines and other hard alcohols.

If you're by the area and want to try unique beers, this place is for you.

Small shop with a nice parking lot next to a very good grocery store. The store is clean, well lit, and pretty well organized. Focus seems more on wine. Beer is in the back corner, organized by style on some back-to-back shelving units. Selection is small, talking with the staff they rotate things in and out because they don't have a ton of space. What there is - well organized, clearly priced, easy to pick through. Mix a six section was WIPED OUT when I visited, but no objections when I did it anyway from intact six packs. They had a few unusual specimens as well as the more common items in small quantities. Overall, prices were higher than usual, so the value isn't great. I will stop in since I am in the neighborhood frequently, but would not go out of my way to shop there. Staff was very friendly and helpful just to talk to - kudos for that.
