The biggest question mark here is "Value."

This is a really well-curated (but fairly small) shop with bottle sales on the floor and growler fills as well as on-premises pint pours in the back (with a lovely backyard to boot).

The growlers are meticulously curated and taken care of, with counter-pressure filling on a tremendous range of beers (from local to far-reaching, from inexpensive to very pricey). 5/5 on this part of their service.

For bottles, though, their prices are egregious. They have a remarkably well-curated selection, so if price is no object, this is the place to shop. That said, they easily overprice neighboring bottle shops by 20-30% on nearly all of the shops to which I've compared them.

TL,DR: Go for a pint or to fill up your growlers, but hit up a different shop if you want to stock your cellar.
