Formerly Dobby's, Cardinal has been here for a couple months now. The space has been remodeled and cleaned up a bit, tall shelves and more coolers, and a fresh coat of paint. Thankfully they kept the quirky suit of armor and free popcorn cart up front. Unfortunately beer is still sitting it the windows, getting full sunlight at certain times of the day... (lowers the quality score).
A couple staff members greeted us an offered help right off the bat. The cashier I recognized from my last Dobby's visit a year or two ago.
Selection has improved, they added a mixed six section with 50-60 assorted beers. After looking these over I easily put 6 together that haven't been tried yet. Sculpin cans, Pipeworks, Rev cans, full Bruery lineup, Stone w00t Stout, odd ceramic bottles of a Southern Star beer for $20, cases upon cases of macros stacked on the floor in the back. Import selection is good though focused on the tried and true over the obscure. German Weisse, Belgian trappists, Sam Smiths from the UK, etc.
Overall an aesthetic/organized upgrade to Dobby's, which always had an impressive craft selection at low prices.
