Fairly easy to find in the Promenade shopping center. Very much like the other locations well laid out with a nice selection of craft beers. I don't think the beer selection is quite as wide as at some other locations, it just seemed like there was less shelf space allotted to beer. Like the other locations you won't find much in the way of hard to find or rare beers, but for readily available stuff it's a decent place. I like the fact that you are able to build a mixed six pack. The service seems to be lacking unless you are in the wine section.

If you've been to one Total wine, you have a good idea what to expect. While the beer selection here is a bit larger than some locations, I've noticed that leads to a decent number of older beers on the shelves. A few months ago, I forgot to check the date on a Dogfish Head 75 minute IPA, only when I returned home to find it was over half a year old. Their growler station is always busy every time I visit and I have noticed this location getting a number of hard to find or limited release beers from time to time.

However, I always recommend people stick with new releases, local selections, or minimally check the bottling date before purchase at this location. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this store however, as the emphasis is on wine, hence the name Total Wine. With that in mind, it's not a bad location as a whole and has a larger-than-average selection for a Total Wine.

I like this store, they have a great selection, they get a lot of special brews, and seasonals. They have a lot of local craft beers as well. I have shopped them on price, and they are the same or better than the other specialty beer stores in the area, and the local grocery stores that have good beer selections.
They have a few people that know beer well, but they are more of a wine store.
