This place probably has the best selection of all the stores in the Fox Valley for beer and probably wine as far as harder to find issues are concerned. As far as a broad spectrum, they are lacking in less popular beers, but don't have the room. A great place to buy beer for a local, probably not so much for a traveler.

The service here is not very good. Some workers here seem to be only interested in the kaching of the cash register and not the experience of the customers. It almost seems like you're an inconvenience if you ask about anything about beer. They will help you, but it is evident they would rather be doing something else.

This could be a fantastic store in a great location relative to beer stores of the same quality type of stock. However I really don't like the people there and will only go there if they have something I'm looking for.

This place has more potential than the owners realize.

Tucked away in "downtown" Menasha, it's not the most convenient place to get to. However, for small store, the selection is surprisingly good. Of course they have quite a few of the macros but the have a nice, varied selection of micros and craft brews as well. I recently picked up some 2002 Rogue Imperial Stout and their last bottle of Avery The Czar. I've only been in the place a few times but each time I go, there seems to be a diamond in the rough just waiting for me.

"Customer service" doesn't seem a high priority. When I asked about a beer I was searching for, there was NO EFFORT to accomodate me. Sadly, I believe I WAS dealing with the owner and not just some clerk. She made no attempt to see if it was on order or whether she would be able to get it for me. That was a bit disappointing.

Prices are actually pretty decent, especially for a store of its size. I didn't see anything that I thought was out of line and it made me wish that some of the other, larger volume stores in the area would follow their lead on pricing. ***EDIT: just picked up a bottle of Avery "The Beast" Grand Cru and spent over $2 LESS than I did at the store in the area with the best selection. THAT'S A BIG DEAL ON A SINGLE BOTTLE!***

All in all, it's a place I'll stop at from time to time but I won't necessarily go out of my way to get there since they won't go out of their way to help me spend more money.
