I feel lucky to have this as my neighborhood liquor store. Fantastic selection of American and imported beers, all at reasonable prices. Spacious aisles, great variety, and helpful staff. I don't spend much time in the wine or liquor section; store is basically broken into thirds by those 3. A very mixed crowd; you'll often have one person buying a case of BMC in front of another stocking up on the latest limited releases.
Their mixed 6-packs are a little more expensive than some other places, but they often include things that you'd very rarely get in a mix-6 (for example, the last time I stopped by, it included 2009 FBS and '09 Founders Imperial Stout, plus every Bell's offering available, plus various Goose Islands, and so on). And they'll generally break packs up for you if there aren't singles already on the shelves. They get good supply of most of the limited releases, and often hold a bit back to pull out now and then. I frequently stop by just to see what's been pulled out of the cellar that day.
Staff are knowledgeable and very helpful, and often very willing to talk about beer or offer suggestions. And they recognize that their opinions are only opinions, and that other people might enjoy things they don't.
All in all, a great place. Only downside is that it's pretty popular among beer lovers, so the stuff that's in demand often goes faster than it does at other nearby stores.

Visiting from out of town. They didn't have any Surly. They had a pretty good selection of other things.We were driving around the city and visited several shops. Stopped here and didn’t buy a thing. They are obviously above average, and there is truly nothing wrong with this place. I’m really mostly baffled by how highly they are rated on here.
