I went here looking to try some unique beers. It has changed dramatically from years prior. The only area in the store that had any beer was along the back of the building in a cooler, which was primarily filled with the "big" beers. They did have a small selection of micros to choose from, but nothing that you couldn't find at a local gas station. The service was average and I was asked if they could help me find anything. Unfortunately the Liquor Cabinet is just that, a liquor cabinet. If you wanted a nice wine or perhaps some hard stuff, then the Liquor Cabinet is the place for you. As for a fledgling beer aficionado, this was not the place to expand your horizons beyond mass produced beers.

It is a fitting name for this small liquor store. This is really the only liquor store worthy of addition to the BA database in Bellevue. It is located in a strip mall, an older one, and it is located it the heart of Bellevue and it is rather easy to find. Plenty of parking.

Most of the store is devoted to liquor and wine. The beer selection is mediocre. A cooler on the back wall is full of beer; half is typical macros. The imports are slim as well. They do offer most of New Belgium’s beers (seasonals and Trippel and Abbey, etc), plus Boulevard (seasonals and core lineup of Wheat, Pale Ale, Porter). You’ll find a couple of six-packs of Anchor, Sierra Nevada, and, of course, a few Sam Adams products. The prices are a little high (maybe .50c to a dollar more per six pack). Unfortunately they don’t offer any winter seasonals aside from Sam Adams Winter 12-pack.

There are two small coolers on the right-hand wall. One has import singles and one has odd 40 oz. swill and the like. I must admit I’ve purchased from both coolers. The imports change on a fairly regular basis; I’ve seen everything from Chimay Blue to Orval to Paulaner Hefe to various Ayinger products. Mind you they mind have only two or three of these imports at one time. They have recently begun to sell 32 oz. bottles of Spilker Ales. Which is very cool.

The service is top-notch. Very friendly.

The Liquor Cabinet is an okay choice for locals, nothing worth seeking out but it belongs on BA and it is a place I visit on occasion.
