Yes, as the original rater mentioned, Chris and Mitch were responsible for creating a really nice beer store at Willow Bend in 2007-2008. However, Chris left in August, 2008, and Nikki has kept the selection going since - - and she was doing a great job, I might add. However, the owner has fallen upon some challenging times in late 2009, and the shelves that used to be stocked with the best craft beer are nearly empty. There are still beers worth purchasing here, but the selection has been reduced from hundreds to less than 50. Dont be surprised if you find some cool beers (like 2007 Rogue XS Imp Stout or older DFH varietals) but there arent nearly as many of them as there used to be. I hope that they are able to start stocking the shelves again sometime soon as this is the closest good beer store to my house.
