vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 3.75 | $$$
Visited on a Monday evening. Not busy.
A - Clean, bright, standard shelves, boxes, singles, sixes, bombers.
Q - From what I could tell, everything could be found cold. To what degree the beer was properly stored prior - no idea.
S - I don't like when folks hover as it can take me time to scan, contemplate and choose. There was no hovering. But everyone was friendly and ready to help when encountered.
S - A broad selection. It will take awhile to drink yourself through their bottle. I did find the Chimay Anniversay Cinq Cent, and there was a good selection of Schafly and Hoppin Frog, but I thought the selection was weak on Belgian and Germans. Also nothing super special on the Americans.
V - A place should price to the market so I never complain about price, but they were still a bit over what I might consider average.

What a find. The beer drinking citizens of Wichita are very fortunate to have this institution in their community. The selection claims to be, and I don't dispute, more than a 1000 different beers, but at one point had been as many as 1400. Many of them are available in singles, almost all were in coolers, and the light was low. The service was as excellent as I have ever experienced or witnessed. Way above and beyond the call of duty. Not just for me, but the other patrons as well. The attention to quality and details was apparent in all aspects of the operation. I'd score the service a 6 if I could. The staff apologized for the fact that some breweries and distributors not being available in Kansas, but of course that is not their fault. I could go on, but I don't feel like it. This is the highest score I have ever given a place or a beer. Oh, and there were mystery cases of 12oz bottles for $30...fun. This is absolutely one of the top retail stores I have been to. If they had better distribution in Kansas (no Shelton Bros, and many of the Michigan big guys like Bells and Founders) it would absolutely be the best I've visited. Belmont Station is the only one that is coming to mind that compares in all areas.
Be thankful, Wichita!
