Norms has a pretty decent selection of craft brews. They have Cigar City which is a big + for me. They always get Hopslam every year!! They have other nice selections as well. I really haven't found a liquor store that has a better selection in the area. If I can't get to Total Wine then Norms is my go to store. The service isn't really all that great, but if you know what you are looking for you won't have a problem. The prices are very fair. They have a lot of liquor and wine. They also have a nice selection of cigars. It's a little cramped inside. They def don't waste space.

Alright, Norman's has great prices on everything, especially liquor. In fact the only business that rivals them price-wise, is Total Wine. Pretty respectable when you consider that Total Wine has hundreds of stores and Norman's only has two(i think).

Beer selection is good, when you consider what every other liquor store in the county has. And if you are not going to total wine or beer monster, your next best bet is Norman's. They tend to bring in new stuff every couple of months, and usually it will be something that even TW doesn't stock.

Service is almost non-existent, but you don't need help. Everything is in the cooler on the back wall. Go look in it, pick out what you want and pay up front. It's simple. Prices are good,selection is fair, location is right next to the free-way. Decent store for craft beer fans, stop by and see what they got.

Norman's on sr 70 has a decent rotating inventory. They are dominated by wines and spirits, but they do have some quality brews. The staff is sharp and friendly, but not very knowledgable about beer. They do not have beer tasting events, but do have wine and spirit tasting every weekend. They will order things that are available. They have just recently (late summer 2008) cut back on BMC and increased their craft stock. The store is very, very crowded with inventory (mainly wine and spirits). Although I know nothing about them, they appear to have a pretty healthy cigar inventory also.
