Stopped in here after stopping at the Vacaville Oulets. The wife got to shop there, I got to shop here.

Cool looking little place in downtown Davis. Found parking only a couple of blocks away. Dark inside, with a seating area, bar/register area, and beers for sale in the back.

Quality was very good. I was very impressed with what i saw here, great US breweries like, Russian River, Alesmith, Midnight Sun, 50/50, etc... Also a ton of great Belgian, German, and other beers as well.

Service was good, I was greeted when I walked in, the guy behind the counter was pleasant to chat with as he checked out my purchases.

Selection was varied and good, they packed quite a bit in the small space they have.

Prices on bottles seemed very fair, and I noticed that tap prices were around $4-6, also fair.

I am pretty sure they don't have food.

All in all, this is a great place, and one of the best beer stores I have ever visited. I usually never have a reason to go to Davis, not anymore, I'll definitely be going back.

This is the kind of place you want to go. You get know the bartenders and they get to know you. They suggest things for you to try, they tell you when stuff you'll like comes in and it's not so uncommomn to share stuff with the familiar faces at the counter. Plus, generally speaking, the prices are cheaper than other places in town. No doubt about, best place in town to have a beer, or to look for a new or rare beer. they're happy to have you bring in food to go with your beer. I gave it a 5 because the only way it would be better was if fewer people knew about it and I could get a seat every time I visited. Last, if an unbelieveable taster flight is announced (Cantillon, anyone?), get in line early, it will sell out fast.

This is my spot! While they don't have a large tap list its always rotating and they have different tastings daily. The bottle selection is one of the best in this area of N. California. Staff is very helpful and most staff there know about beer. The drinking area is small and is busy on weekends but its worth it.
