Stopped in here as it's not very far out of the way on my drive home from work. Located in a corner mini-stripmall, it has the outward appearance of being nothing more than a local macro-hell liquor store all too common in the area.
Once inside, that notion is disabused. Macros, while rather plentiful, are located well toward the back of this tipped-over "L" shaped building, past the selection of craft beers and imports. As far as selection goes, this store looked like a U.N. for beer - a bit of something from a wide range of countries. South America, Asia, Central America, and Europe all had beers representing the region. From the imports, Germany had Hacker-Pschorr, Paulaner and Erdinger, Belgium had Duvel, Piraat, Maredsous 10, St. Bernardus Prior 8, and a decent list of other good Belgian ales, British brews were Fullers London Porter and IPA, Sam Smiths Oatmeal Stout, and a decent array of other U.K. brews.
U.S. craft brews were primarily West Coast brewers: Stone, Lagunitas, Bear Republic, Lost Coast, and Sierra Nevada with others such as Avery, Sam Adams, Kona, and a number of others made for a pretty well-rounded selection.
Service was okay; they allow the breaking up of six-packs, something I really like to do. Their beer knowledge was pretty limited, though.
All in all, this could become a store I'd go to if I'm looking for some more esoteric brews from Columbia, Chile, Brazil, and Bolivia or Vietnam, Thailand or India. It's selection is its appeal.

This place is alright. They have a good selection of beers from around the world, and the prices are decent/normal. The workers don't have much knowledge of beer though. (i.e. I asked if they had any more Stone Vertical Epic left and they looked at me like I was speaking Russian) The store is also very cramped. It seemed like they tried to pack as much into the little spot as possible. I won't deny though that the beer selection is good, which is what this is all about, so if you don't mind threading your way through the place to reach the beer, possibly bumping by a couple of other customers as well, and dealing with guys who "just work there" and don't know much, then I would recommend it.
