Just about all the Craft beers they carry are available cold. This place is a short distance from where I live so it's nice to be able to stop by on the way home and grab a cold dogfish head, Great lakes and 3f for example. I like my 90 minute IPA and it's nice to know I can grab a cold 4-pac. The beer in the coolers moves pretty quickly. However the craft beers in front of the cooler seem to have been around for quite awhile. They do carry some Belgians that are cold also. Antioch Armanetti Action Liquors is about 10 minutes away and has a greater selection, but if you want a cold craft beer now this is a good place to stop

This place is in a little strip mall and there are lots of BMC posters in the window but inside they have long rows of wine in the front. As you work your way back the beer is in coolers in the back.

There are a few craft beers in coolers to the right but more in the back and a wall of BMC to the left. Most of the beer is cold with a small 1/2 isle of warm beer. They had a whole door of different 40 oz beers which surprised me a bit. They had several "craft” beers put out by BMC that I have not seen in other places. The singles section looked very dusty with the bottom row having lint stuck to them. The singles only made up about 4-5 choices anyway.

The two owners were working and I talked to the wife a bit about Bell's and she said they sold out of Bell's a week before so I guess they move products faster than I thought. If I was going out on the lake or camping in the area this would be the place to stop for some cold beers. They also have a fair selection of cigars, another requirement for camping.
