I usually shop at the 180th street Hy-Vee and recently went into this one seeing as how I will be moving close to 156th and Maple in the near future. Very nice west "O" liqour store. Good selection of six packs and cases cold. Crafts/Imports/Micros are kept separate from BMC. The singles selection here is better than any Hy-Vee or other store in NW "O" for that matter. Rogue, Youngs, Sam Smith and others in bombers and pints are cold. While about 50 singles are available for making a six pack for around $8. I did find that some of the beers in the singles section were dated a little bit but for the most part they were ok. The staff is not all that knowlegeable but they are very friendly. The selection could be better but also could be a lot worse. I will make this a weekly stop in the future.

This is the furthest north and west good liquor store in Omaha… thus it is way too freaking far from where I live. Still I needed to add it to Beerfly so I made one more trip out there.

This liquor store is attached to the main grocery store (which is rather new) and it can be entered via the grocery store or the liquor store front door. There is plenty of parking.

The beer is straight ahead and too the left as I entered the front door of the liquor store. I wasn’t very surprised with the selection; everything they carried is the same stuff I can find in any good liquor store (they did have some Mead though…). The craft beer consists of the standard offerings from New Belgium, Goose Island, Odell, Boulder, Empyrean, Spilker, Rogue, SA, SN, Anchor, and “kind of” craft beer like Leinenkugel and High Falls. They had the typical Omaha imports like Paulaner, Samuel Smith, Young’s, Fullers, Chimay, Spaten, etc, and a host of Mexican and Canadian lagers. I didn’t see anything noteworthy but they did carry a good array of decent imports and craft beer. Most was kept chilled and they did offer singles of about fifty beers, most were the type of stuff I’d buy only one of to review anyway… so that worked out. The prices are a tad high but you are in West Omaha.

The service was very slow but friendly enough. Beer knowledge seemed to hover around zero.

Would I go back? Sure, maybe for the Meads. Maybe if I’m way the hell out there for another reason I’ll stop in. Still for local “West O” folks this is the best they got.
