This place is straight outta the 50's. Downtown, business district, old building across the street from a new convention center. Smell the old cigarette smoke when you walk in the door. Like walking into an adult bookstore in the 70's kind of vibe. But the beer! You'll forget the flourescent lights and low ceilings quickly.

Along with all the expected megabrews, hard liquor and wine you would expect at a straight-out liquor store, there were good amounts of regionals, Belgians, English, German and at least one Polish beer. Bell's from Michigan represented well with at least 10 different lines (3 stouts), Pyramid Brewery from Minnesota with 4 or 5 lines, Three Floyds had three lines out. Goose Island had Honkers Ale and may have had more but I stopped looking when I hit 4 cases worth of six-packs. A cold case held many different 12- & 22-ounce & 750 ml. single selections including Chimay, Young's, Fuller's & Kostritzer. Other brewers like Nine G's, Mad Anthony's, Dark Horse, Buffalo Bill's, Stevens Point, New Holland, Lakefront, Cooperstown, Snake River, Berghoff, Tommyknocker, and Warbird's were seen as well in the cold 6-pack case.

A word of caution: some of the the warm bottles in 6 packs had a good bit of dust on them so choose carefully. Most 6-packs ran in the $10 - $12 range which is a bit more than I'm used to paying in Florida for similar brews.
