Well I added this so I should have something to say about it.

I found this place on accident. I was waiting for a friend to get a haircut at Charles Penzone and wandered across the street to kill time. I walked the strip mall to find little worth a visit. On the verge of giving up on the strip mall I pass by a store when from a good 30 yards away a 6-pack of Alpha King is sighted in my peripheral vision. This is the only place I have seen Alpha King since I moved here so naturally I enter and buy them out of it.

It's primarilly a wine and confections shop specializing in custom orders and private tastings/parties, but they have a 2 door cooler featuring various 6-packs and singles. The selection isn't huge but pretty much everything they have I can't seem to find anywhere else with the exception of the Delerium Tremens (old by the way), Aventinus singles, and some Thomas Hardy, for this alone I like this shop. The stock is always different when I go in which is weekly to biweekly.

The staff is by far and away some of the nicest clerks I have ever seen period. After I had been in there once they knew me by name, partially because I decimated their stock the first time I visited but I was impressed none the less. They don't know the most about beer but they are truly some down right nice people. I went in late one night and was pretty sure the guy working that evening was slightly lit on wine and he was extremely friendly and helpful and we shared a couple of laughs after my purchase. Personally I like a staff that isn't ashamed or afraid to dip in to the stock a little while on the job and just cut loose and build customer rapport.

The prices are pretty much standard to good. There's been a couple of instances where they didn't have an item entered in to the system and basically haggled a price with me, which I was fair about.

Well my secret spot is out. Try not to scoop me on new stock folks. If the owners happen to be reading this, keep up the amazing work and your apparent devotion to customer service which is a dying trait in sales these days and I commend you for your efforts.
