If reviews seems like paid advertisements, it's because they are. Sort by "Top Reviewers" to get a better picture of Capone's.

Stopped going here a while back because of shady practices. Too many other good places to go to someone I can't trust. Good list of local stuff, lots of old beer.

This is the go to place for the best selection and best customer service. The owner really makes it a point to be a part of the beer community and develops relationships with all the local breweries. This allows him to brings in the best selection and offer some really great stuff for his customer:

Atmosphere- This place is wall to wall with Amazing Beers. You name it, If its available in the area Capones probably has it!
Quality - They make it a point to make sure they offer the freshest beers in town. They are often one of the first places to get it after it is bottled
Service - This is where they blow every place out of the water! You can spend all day here talking beer with the owner. He loves teaching and learning new things from his customers. Give him an example of what you like and he will show you something new and better! They also do tastings of new are rare stuff that they patrons have shared.
Selection - The Best
Value - The same price you will find anywhere else.

Best liquor store in town for me. Owner is awesome and always takes good care of me and anyone I send that way. I'm in there once a week or so in winter and much more in the summer. Best selection of beer (specifically local breweries) than anyone else. Generally first to get Pipeworks new releases and keeps Facebook updated so we know what's arriving. Do yourself a favor and go here!
