This place is nice in the middle of nowhere Iowa.

This little liquor store in this little college town sits in an old Subway building and just opened three little months ago. When you walk in and turn left you can go to the right and find a beer cooler just for imports and microbrews. The only reason I found it was because I was visiting some family just before christmas and got curious. I thought I'd take a chance and end up (most likely) not getting anything, but there was Fuller's ESB, Sierra Nevada, Rogue, Flying Dog, Boulevard. There are some imports too, Augsburger, Carlsberg, Murphy's Irish Red. So if you live anywhere near this place you can make a beer run and not have to drive so far anymore.

I didn't even see a macro! Ha ha, they're in a seperate room.

RE: Review

I went back and went into the cooler in the back and they had Chimay!! All three Chimay's and I took the last blue label. They even had an assortment of old american lagers: hamm's, schlitz, ect.

Talked to the people and they should be getting: Alpha King, Fuller's Porter, and Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout sometime.

They are starting to get more beer by suggestion.

They will be getting: Alpha King, Pride and Joy, Wexford, belhaven scottish ale, and Anchor Liberty Pale Ale

They leave all of their beer in the window, the Sierra Nevade Pale Ale I had that was bottled a month ago was skunked!!! Everything is tainted here...ehh. Still waiting on the new shipment of great beer. ;)

As of 1-25-06 they got in: FFF Pride and Joy and Robert the Bruce, Sprecher's Black Bavarian, Lefthand Porter and JUJU.

They're getting a case of Rogue's Chocolate Stout in next Wednsday, so...2-21-07.

The Rogue Chocolate Stout arrived and it's great!! 2-21-07.

They just got in Alpha King last week, March 10!!

Looks like the manager will be getting a new liscence and the abaility to buy higher ABV% beers...at a higher price of course. May 23, 2007.
