This place opened in March 2011 and I have to say that it's nice to have a decent bottle shop so close to home.
It's a small shop but is laid out well with at least a third of the store dedicated to beer. They have about 7-8 fridges of mainly six-packs with a separate fridge for bombers and mixed 12-packs. Most of the chilled beers are domestics with a good mix of domestic craft brews and seasonals, plus they also have a growing Belgian section and of course the standard BMC. They have a smaller non-chilled section consisting mainly of bombers with sections dedicated to both domestics and Belgians/imports. They recently added a 3rd section of their shelves to bombers which has helped increase the selection. Also recently added is a rotating beer on tap so you can sip on a brew while you shop...big fan of that idea.
Everyone is extremely friendly and though you often find them behind the counter, both John and Steve know their stuff and are always open to talking up new releases and offerings.
There is a small deli section apparently sponsored by Boar's Head. Sandwiches range from $6-$9 and the few I've had have all been incredible...about what you'd expect from anything involving Boar's Head meats/cheeses.
All in all, this is a solid option if you're in the area, though I wouldn't necessarily go out of your way to get here. They don't have as vast a selection as some of the bigger guys in a driving distance and they get smaller quantities in stock, but the value is good for the area and they have been getting more and more special releases as they've established themselves with distributors.
