I like this place for the friendly owner and the homey feel, even if the selection isn't huge.
A good stock of your mass-produced beers in 30-racks and 6-packs, but a decent mix of craft as well. I've found Brooklyn, Sierra Nevada, Victory and Stone just to mention a few. Beer is the focus here, although wine and liquor are available. All the beer is kept in coolers and the prices are not labeled, although the owner will let you know the prices upon request as you shop. I've experienced a few special events here, including an occasional tasting.
Friends have experienced special orders of their favorite beer placed by the owner. The staff is quite helpful, always willing to chat or help you find a suitable pick. Many regulars have struck up friendship with owner.
Also a great location for students in the area.

Admittedly, i am a tad biased as i live less than a block away from Darwin's and the owner is super friendly, but not in that creepy kind of way. They are even queer-friendly and upfront about it too, which is a pleasant change. Its a small store, so the variety is certainly limited by space, but Darwin's makes up for that with its huge range of stock and the owners attention to proper storage. Spirits take up the vast majority of the shelf space, but the coolers are stuffed full of everything, from the humble 40oz, 'gansett tallboys, a little bit of Stone, La Choufe, Trappist 6-8-10, and i think a few Rogue's. I cannot remember how much is available in terms of local brews as i only have become more recently acquainted with some of the local varietals.
