The lay out of this place is alright, not really a beer-centric place, but a pretty good selection. Some of the beer is facing a western exposure, not sure how filtered the windows are, it doesn't look good...

I did get a clunker on one of my visits, nothing seems uber fresh

Service has been friendly every time I've gone. No beer geeks on staff that I can tell

Selection is good, not great, but by far the best place I've found in OKC

This place seems pretty pricey, but not as bad as others I've gone to here...

Relative to most other stores Sam's is pretty inexpensive, especially considering their selection which is very good. They will try to order anything at your request, which I appreciate. They've recently started updating their FB with new arrivals which is helpful also.

Last time I was in they had a great selection of regional and local brews, wide variety of Smokestack series, Coop and Redbud and some older Avery's.

Sam's is a solid store with a good variety run by knowledgeable, friendly people.

This place is unique but can be alot better, haven't spoke to owner much, seems very busy every time i see him. The rest of the staff, well one look and you instanly know not to ask, usually places good to ask is where they see you browsing beer and eagerly offer to help you. very good variety, not the best in town but for not that big of a place they cram it well. I can say this, they're the first in town to carry the new guinness FES, and to me that brings this place above the rest in okc. Top quality brews but as I hinted in other reviews, okc needs alot of improvement on bringing more variety from places like Nyc, Colorado and Oregon. I plan to move to TX next year, okc is craming my stile in beer selection!!!

This store front is a little harsh on your eyes. Once inside the store is crammed full of alcohol. The store felt cluttered and cramped inside. The beer selection is not the greatest. The staff there seem some what friendly. There is a very nice Liquor selection and wine. I think that selection they have there is to much for that small store. As I was walking down the isles I kept bumping into things. There prices there are very reasonable. Overall the store is had a good selection but very crowded.

Sam's Warehouse...Not the prettiest liquor store, but you remember what your momma told you, it's what's on the inside that counts. Beer moves here pretty regularly. Never even seen an expired six pack in the place. And I've looked. For the most part, the employees just leave you to your devices, happy to sit behind the register doing sudoku or reading the Gazette. However, if you do have questions, they are happy to help you. Or failing that, they'll kick the owner out of his chair in the back and he'll help you out. At least I think he's the owner. Anyways, that guy knows what he's talking about. Their selection is extremely good. Easily top 5-10 in the city. They seem to concentrate on American crafts. This was one of the last places in the city that I could buy a bottle of Rogue's 10,000 brew. Aside from that, they have a good selection of German and Czech beers. Well, as good a selection as you can have in this state. Prices were reasonable, too. Great store.

A pretty good beer selection for Oklahoma. The shelve's are mostly stocked with German , Belgian , Czech , and English imports, and various American craft/micros , most all from western and neighboring state breweries .Judging by the freshness codes the beer seems to move pretty quickly here.

Sam, the owner , isn't really up on beers, but he was willing to special order any beer available to him from his distributers. In fact he faxed me a list of all brews available in Oklahoma. Pretty cool, I thought. The rest of the staff is not that knowledgeable but friendly.

Prices are very competitive for the local area and a down right bargain vs. other states; ie Bigfoot $8.99 a sixer and Trippel Karmeilet $5.45 per 750 mil.

Per Oklahoma state law all beers are sold at room temperature , another beer culture shock for me.

For an Okie this is a five star place to shop for beer , but having lived in the Pac. Northwest it's a relative let down, But I guess It could be worse ; Georgia and their 6% beer limit ?...eeegads !

This has got to be my favorite place to buy beer in Oklahoma. It started as my liquor store back when I was a drunk, so it was only natural for me to continue to go there now that I'm a beer lush. They've got a pretty good selection for beer in Oklahoma, not quite the best, but one of the best. Several Belgiums, several vintage ales, and your normal run of the mill micro and macro brews. Service is not the best though. Probably the one pitfall of the company. The owner is a nice guy, but isn't real knowledgeable about beer, he has some knowledge, but not much. The rest of the staff is also so so. Prices however is where they excel. If I know what I want, I'll go here every time and know I'm gonna get mostly fresh stock, occasionally I've seen some out of date items, and I'm gonna get the lowest prices. Overall my favorite store if I know what I want, second favorite if I'm not quite sure or need information on a beer.
All ratings based on what I can find in Oklahoma, not compared to going out of state.
