Goebel Liquor is the quintessential place to buy craft beer in Wichita. This store has the widest selection of beer, period. There is at least one, if not two aisles dedicated to craft beer 6 packs. Craft 6 packs are available cold or warm. There is large cooler for single bottles to make mixed 6 packs. The selection is absolutely top notch with new seasonals coming in virtually each week. This is the only liquor store in town that I can go to to get what I need when I'm looking for something I cannot find anywhere else in town. The owner, Rob, has enormous experience about every beer he sells, and the entire staff is very friendly and knowledgable. The same staff members have been there as long as I can remember, so there's a good consistency there that is refreshing. The prices are actually quite fair, many stores are more expensive. Hands down, this is the best craft beer store in Wichita, period.

I have been here many times, but since I only look at the beer side, I'll only talk about that part of the store.

The place is well-lit and everything is marked. The selection is great. If it's in Kansas, it's here.

The service is terrific and they know how to help you find whatever it is you may be looking for.

One of the better places in Wichita for beer, but still has issues like other places in town.

I requested a case of a certain beer, from the owner himself and never got a call that it was in.

Instead, they just stopped carrying it at all.

They were annoyed when I asked them about it and didn't answer my question.

Can say enough good things about this place, the people, or the selection. Had a few questions about some random German beers and one of the salesman walked me down the isles and pointed out several outstanding selections. Each of the beers recommended he had personally tried and all were great. They even had some really hard to find stuff that I had been dying to try like Mirror Mirror. Great experience.

First off, this is definitely a 5 if you compare it to other options in the area but for the beer tourist I have to deduct a little. Distribution is tough in Kansas and worse in Oklahoma. Had an extensive singles selection which everyone should like immensely, and they had a risky beer I wanted to try on sale from Rogue. If I need beer in Wichita without a doubt this where you go.

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 bottles. 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.
