Place was an unexpected find, due to the poorly selected beer signs (none of which most serious beer drinkers enjoy). Despite the expectation for only poor beer, the selection was great. I mostly wandered in, due to the wonder of how a small liquor store was surviving across the street from the liquor store giant, Bottle King. Obviously it was selection. The store had a very decent selection.

It had singles shelved, single refrigerated, 6-packs refrigerated, 6-packs shelved, cases pallet-racked (in the back). Oh my.. they even have a case of 120 minute Dogfish Head. I have to say I have never seen an entire case of that for sale, although I'm sure it won't sell soon due to its super high price tag (~$180).

Selection was large, but not gargantuan like Oak Tree Buyrite, but the prices exceeded expectation, with many of the hard to find beers actually being cheaper. Nice place to pick up singles or bulk. I will be stopping in occasionally, because it is on my way home from work.

Very good and getting better all the time. I travel all over looking for good beer stores and haven't found better within an hour.
