Cool little spot in Reno. They have really interesting international beers including some usual stuff from Germany that really impressed my father who pretty much only likes German beer.

Had Tilquin Gueuze on tap, which was pretty cool. However, I was disappointed by their lack of Cantillion, as many reviewers from 2012 stated that they used to stock this. Also, the beer cooler was really disorganized. They had boxes everywhere, including in front of shelves, making it difficult to see some of the beer. Also, some of the beer in boxes wasn't on the shelves...I poked around a bit, but I felt a little ridiculous doing so.

Would probably be a good spot to pick up limited Bruery and FW beers. Unfortunately, the selection just wasn't that great when I was there. Did grab a bottle of Tilquin though :)

Stopped in on my way to Tahoe. It's a hybrid bottle shop/sipping bar. Basically what you purchase in store can also be opened and consumed on premise. Plenty of seating with about 10 stools at bar plus tables by street window and even some picnic tables outside on sidewalk.

Selection is very nice. Though it wasn't as heavy on the Belgians as the reviews from early 2012 state there is still quite a good selection to be browsed. Would agree that more American could be present but for what is available it's really some of the better end stuff.

Service was great. Helpful but not pushy. Talkative at the bar but not overbearing. And very friendly. Felt more like they were there to guide you if you need it then simply just to serve you.

If I was ever in Reno I would certainly make the effort to stop back.

Place is great. The owner, Ty, is very knowledgable and very helpful. Even helped my mom buy some christmas gift beers!

Glad to see such a great import section in Reno. He should bulk up his american craft beer section though, lots of good stuff on this side of the pond.

He usually has a three beers on tap of equal quality to his expansive import bottle section.

Wine and scotch is also avaliable, but I'm not the reviewer to be a good judge of those bottles.

Also, you can open your bottles in store and drink at the bar. All bottles are stored in a maximum security prison chiller!

Went into Craft Wine & Beer not knowing what to expect. Walked in and there were crates of wine neatly arranged and a walk-in cooler for beer. Ty asked us to walk in the cooler and even shut off the fan. What did I find: Bottles of Cantillon and lots of imports! Only problem, limit one Cantillon per customer. Ty was concerned that people would sell the beers on E-Bay with a significant mark-up. I couldn’t disagree with him and left with my one bottle limit.

Craft also had three beers on tap and three wines by the glass. Had an Evil Twin Biscotti Break (Imperial Porter/Imperial Stout, call it what you want) and the lady had a Moscato. The Evil Twin was one of the best beers Imperial Stouts I’ve ever had. The Moscato was light and refreshing as well.

Thanks Ty! Definitely visit if you are in Reno. Would highly recommend this place over Total What's their name.
