Maybe it's just me but this Sunflower location seems to have a slightly better selection than the others I've been to. I've noticed over the past couple years they have done a decent job of rotating in new selections, and have alot of beers you wouldn't expect a grocery store to carry. The prices are average, but there are always a few craft brands that are on sale each week, and some are pretty good deals. One bargain I don't pass up is the Full Sail Session Lagers for 8.99 a 12-pack. They do that once every month or so.

On my most recent visit I noticed they expanded on their Stone lineup, with Double Bastard, Vertical Epic, and Sublimely Self Righteous on the shelves. I can usually find favorites like Odell Myrcenary, Maui Coconut Porter, and Union Jack IPA. They have alot of seasonals, although for more special releases you might want to search elsewhere.

The only complaint I have is that I often find some beer that is past its prime. Not that big of deal, it happens at most places, and I just move on to something fresh. Perhaps they need to cut back a bit on stuff that doesn't move so quickly?

Overall this is a good store for craft beer, probably the best option that I know of on the northwest side of town. You can always find a few good things here plus it's a nice place to shop.
