I've been in here before and wouldn't consider this place worthy of beerfly. 50 beers to be found in the back corner of this wine shop... think Lush but about a third of the selection. Stone, FFF, GLBC, Flying Dog, Founders, St Bernardus, Revolution. Mainly the basics and a handful of seasonals. A cooler held a few beers, wines, and gourmet cheese and charcuterie to pair with your beverages.

The staff was friendly and said they did host beer tastings on occasion, although the store is clearly geared 90% towards wine. I walked out with a 4-pk. of Festina Peche over the summer, today St. B 12 and Rev Fistmas.

Binny's Marcey St. (infinite selection & specialized service), Whole Foods, and Vrai Amour (quality singles and glassware) are mere blocks away, Local Option too. Worth a look if passing by, but not really a destination.
