I stopped at Goebel Liquor while making the drive up 35 from Texas to Iowa. A big sign along the street makes it pretty easy to find. Inside, the store is pretty dark, and the craft beer selection is easy to spot to the right of the store. Coolers hold dozens of six-packs in back, while in front, a huge selection of singles are refrigerated. In between are two full aisles of room-temp six-packs, 750s, and bombers.

Right after entering, the beer specialist, Matt, approached to ask if I needed help. I had a list assembled from the store's Web site, and he was very helpful in telling me what was available, what was out of season, what was out of stock, and what else I might like. When I mentioned wanting Goose Island BCS, which wasn't on the shelves, Matt called his boss to see if he could release any from the store's cellar. The boss wasn't available, so Matt gave me his business card and said to call if I came back through, and he'd get me some BCS from his personal cellar. Just all-around terrific service on a level I haven't experienced before. I even got a nice bottle opener out of the deal.

Selection is very good, between loads of Midwest regionals and lots of imports. There was a particularly nice representation of sours, and a ton of aged Avery bombers (all the way back to 2006 and 2007, I believe). I was a little disappointed that I couldn't find so many of the beers listed on the store's Web site, however-- beers that I think are in-season, but just out of stock at the time. Hoppin' Frog BORIS and Black and Tan, Jolly Pumpkin La Roja and Biere De Mars, and 1809 Berliner Weisse, for example. Nevertheless, I was satisfied to come away with Rochefort 10, Hanssen's Oude Gueuze, GI Sofie, JP Bam Noire, and a couple others.

Overall, I'll definitely make a stop at Goebel the next time I make this drive. The service was terrific, and the selection was very good.
