I really don't like this place.
A ~ Very drab and dirty with Linoleum floors. Reminded of Family dollar, with a blue and white taking the place of red and white. This is the biggest store in OKC so They are ALWAYS stocking things and the beer department is cluttered and pales in comparison to the wine department which is actually very pleasant and organized.
Service ~ Seems like the only people who I see the beer department are people with trams stocking things (mostly Honey brown and other macros). The best employee I know for beer works in the wine department. If you CALL Byron's to check on a product in stock, chances are the beer department either won't answer or won't know and would "have to check."
If you ask
Selection ~ I feel like everything is just very haphazard. They organize by brewer but the placement is just...off. They don't have single 12oz/mix-a-six, just a Pint/750 section that is pretty much just Merchant du Vin products with a few randoms thrown in. Looks like they almost never get purchased. The entire bottom shelf of this section is just random six packs that aren't priced or anything of the sort! As if customer/employees picked them out, changed their mind and just threw them on the only available shelf. Eh...
V ~ It is a known fact that Byron's IS their own distributor
so everything they have is as cheap as it gets (sierra nevada 7.29, Full Sail 7.09, Bridgeport 7.40, etc.)
I only go here for Unibroue (5.59), Bridgeport IPA 12-packs (14.09), Torpedo (7.50), or a case of Native Amber Pints ($35.00). Good value, but it is not pleasant to shop here.
Their "beer sales" are basically reducing anywhere from .04-.50 cents of a six or twelve.
I also hear that they are one of the distributors paying lobbyists to keeps the "only 3.2 in gas stations/refrigerated beer law" in effect. Wack.
Christmas time, this is the place to go for Celebration.
Avoid unless run-of-the-mill is what you're searching for.
