Stopped here during my recent vacation in Sedona, AZ in hopes of find some Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA. And I was in luck! They had it and I bought 3 bottles for $8.00 each before tax. The total was $26.00 and some change. The guy working was quite chatty and helpful. I also saw many offerings from Dogfish Head as well as Unibroue, Stone, Sam Adams, Corsendonk, Samuel Smith, Oak Creek Brewery, Stone, etc. just to name a few. A very good selection, especially considering the store's relative small size. I did not have much time to browse, as I would have liked to and to have talked beer more with the employee who was in there, who I am pretty sure is the owner. If I lived in this area of Arizona this would certainly be a store I would visit regularly. They also carry a fine selection of hard liquor and I think they had some wine as well.

If this place was anywhere other than where it was I'd give it lower marks for selection. The selection is not huge, but it is pretty quality. Deschutes, Breckenridge, Dogfish Head, Rogue, Stone and Alaskan Brewing are some of the highlights. This place is also excellent for local brews from AZ and NM including Oak Creek and Nimbus from AZ and Santa Fe, Sierra Blanca and Rio Grande from NM. I also found Big Sky Moose Drool and an anniversary beer from Uinta here.

Like many on BA I am on the quest to review a beer from each state and this place obliged me with five from states I had not had prior. The best part is that all of their craft brews can be bought by the bottle. Each beer has a tag that gives the six-pack and the bottle price. Sweet!

The person who was on duty when I was there was not a beer drinker but was able to point out where the beers were from and give some insight as to what sold well and what didn't. He was a vodka man, but we had a discussion about their impressive array of tequilas.

Just down a couple of large intersections from the Y, this is a conveniently located and reasonably well-stocked liquor store for the Sedona area. The drive in window is always classy. Decent selection of microbrews with a smattering of odds-and-ends imports, mostly English and German. Prices were acceptable for the Sedona area, in general a dollar or so higher than in Phoenix. All the beer was in the refrigerator, which is handy for drinking on the go, but obviously precludes having a huge selection. Nice and clean, the gentleman working the counter was very pleasant, although I didn't test his beer knowledge per se. A little better selection would bump this place up into a great spot, but for the location it's mighty fine.

This place was located close to Oak Creek Brewery on Yavapi Rd, and also to the Hotel Sedona Rouge were we were staying. It is 5 minutes away from the touristy section of town. This is a small store that actually had a nice micro selection. There is a drive up window for the locals that know what they want.

Beers included items from Eel River, Oak Creek, New Belgium, Sierra Nevada, Deschuttes, Grand Teton, and many others.

The best part of this place was the single bottle prices which were $ 1.49 each which allowed me to sample several bottles for just a few cents more than the six price cost. That is why I marked it inexpensive on the scale.

The guy behind the counter was very knowledgable of his beer offerings.

If you are looking for some beers to enjoy the scenery with, this is the place to stop.
