UPDATE 07/10/05

While there have been slips in the selections of other beer establishments in Wichita, Goebel Liquor has taken a couple of huge steps forward. First, they moved into a big, new store across the street. Much more room with a new, cleaner feel to it. There are even a couple of flat screens up on the walls showing things like brewery tours and "American Beer." No fewer than two huges aisles dedicated to craft beer and a whole wall of door coolers. All macro beer has been separated and moved into the "beer cave" and can easily be avoided. And the selection continues to grow with the addition of B. United Distributors in Kansas.

One new thing for Goebel is the addition of a room that sells both cigars and breweriana. Lots of branded glassware, brewery clothing, etc. A very cool addition to a liquor store that focuses on beer.

The absolute must-stop establishment in Wichita for beer lovers.

ORIGINAL

This is a great little place for beer lovers. And for those of us in Wichita who find it hard to find great brew, it is one of our only links to the outside beer world.

Don't be fooled by outward appearances. This store might look small on the outside, but there is a lot more in it than one might think. I drove by it for years, just thinking that it was a typical corner store. I was kicking myself after my first visit for all my missed oppurtunities.

While you can pick up sixers and twelve packs, their specialty is the build-your-own-sixpack. The coolers in the back are full floor-to-ceiling with rows of brews, plus there are at least two full aisles of shelving dedicated to beer. And they are always bringing in new stock. The appropriate seasonals and newest beers are usually displayed on a rack by the register. I am almost guaranteed to see something new on each visit. No other store in Wichita compares with their selection. Period. This place is the benchmark that are other stores in the area should be compared to.

Everyone who works at Goebel is extremely helpful and many are very beer savvy. They have gone out of their way to help me with special requests and have always seemed happy to do so. These people really love beer and it shows. Almost every time that I am there I end up hanging around and talking about beer, especially with the owner, Rob. A great guy and a great store.

I just took my first trip to Goebel liquor and I was extremely impressed. The sales clerk was very friendly and definately knew her beer. She explained how the whole build your own six pack works and recommended a few of her favorites. She said they sell every beer that is possible to get in Kansas, and that is easy to believe. The selection was tremendous. I will definately return to this establishment.
