Expect to get over-charged. Expect the 6-packs, cases, and single bottles you grab to not be price marked. When checking out at the register, you can expect the clerk to guess at what each price should be, by rounding up about $2 bucks each item.

If not for their blatant daily up-charging, this would be an excellent beer stop. Everything else is cool, selection and quality are nice, staff is knowledgeable... but after awhile you wonder if the owners TEACH the clerks to ring things in a few dollars more than marked. (525 characters)

Service was quite terrible both times there. I tried to give it a second chance, but had the same result. I tried to ask what was new and/or notable on tap and the guy behind the counter replied with "I dunno, we have like 70 something beers on tap." I'm pretty sure he was high as a kite as well. Won't go back there with so many other better places around like Weilands, Palmers, and Pace High Carryout where they value their customers. (438 characters)

Too expensive. Horrible service. The owner is not someone who you want to give your hard earned beer allowance to. Not to mention, he made national beer news by buying another stores whole allocation of Hopslam in hops to resell it at a marked up price. HOPSLAMGATE 2014!

Go to Weilands. Go to Palmers. Do NOT go here for beer. (328 characters)

Guess how much a 64oz growler of Oberon is going to cost you here if you buy the growler at the same time. How about $26+$20 for the oberon, gtfo Savor. Also the guy below mentioned two things I can verify. They are overpriced and they do in fact fill the their own 64oz growlers just at 64oz or below which is underneath the 2 inch long neck on these things. Best part was the cashier I overheard telling a customer that they charge allot for the new growler but it all works out because the they actually hold 72oz. Guess what if they keep gyping you on the pours your getting screwed twice. On the plus side they did have a big selection of drafts. Fix your pours and prices and you can compete in the saturated cbus market. (727 characters)

Been here a few times now. Beer selection is good and nicely arranged.

Two major problems here:
1) price of growler glass is higher by about $2 than most every place around.
2) they don't fill growlers high enough. On a 64 oz growler they fill exactly to the 64 oz mark which leaves more room for air than they should.

I mentioned point no 2 today to them. I pointed out that not everyone is going to head right home and drink the growler so it would be in their best interest to fill to the brim to ensure the beer stays fresh for as long as possible. The guy working there pretty much shot me down saying that they expect us to drink the growlers immediately. But he did say that he would mention my concern to his management, which is encouraging.

Its a pretty nice place but here are better options that seem to be run a bit better (Daily Growler) (855 characters)
