A decent place to get something new to try. Mostly deals in 22 oz size in several offerings that are very hard to find in LA. Not much in six packs or cases though. It's worth a stop for something different but not to stock up.

The help was very good offering their likes and suggestions and customers were willing to pipe up as well. Some North Coast, several Belgiums including Trappists and other selections. No Stone or Victory (alas only one distributor in state for Stone and New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Lafayette are it) but some good Rogue Double Dead and Imperial Stout and other selections.

Though this location has mostly wine and liquor, it's beer selection should not be frowned upon. They seem to be getting more and more imported and craft brews in each month. Though establishments in New Orleans, Lafayette, or Houston have a much wider selection, this place is great for this area!

Service at the store is exceptional due to the fact that the guys pride themselves more on their beer knowledge than anything else in the store. Kudos for that. Also, they try to have beer tastings each week, but that tends to vary.

Some beers they have off of the top of my head:
Sierra Nevada, Flying Dog, Abita, Sam Adams all in 6paks, and then singles include various Chimay's, Rogues, Unibroue's, Paulaners, Deliriums, Franzikaner, Lindeman's lambic, Samuel Smiths, black douglas, holy grail, Aecht Smokebeers, Thomas Hardy, Gouden Carolus Triple AND Grand Cru, McChouffe, and a few other belgium, german, and american craft brews.

This store is a great place for a not so big, but steadily growing area. Hopefully with more people coming into the area and more businesses, maybe the beer selection will grow even more.

If you are in the area, this store is definitely worth a sidetrip/visit.
