It's hard for me to give such a low rating, but despite having a decent selection, this place just doesn't respect craft beer. The problem is the old, outdated beer sitting on the shelves. I still stop in here once in a while, just in case they have something interesting. Anymore I don't buy much, but I do sneak a peak at bottle dates to see how fresh the beer is. I've found Dogfish head beers from 2 years ago, Deschutes 6-packs over a year since the bottling date. My father-in-law bought a Rodenbach there not realizing it was 4 years old. Thankfully that one aged ok. As you know, most stuff doesn't have a date printed on it anyway, so it's hard to tell how much other beer is spoiled at this establishment. The prices aren't that competetive either. The service is decent, there is usually only 1 person at the register. Overall this place is not recommended...

Q--- A lot of older beers that are dusty and kept in not the greatest conditions, Even for Tucson!!!

S---- Service is shotty at best. Have gotten much better service for wine than for beer there. They have weekly wine tastings but generally ignore beer.

S---- Great selection of beer but the conditions really make you wonder. Generally get something out of the cooler and at least feel good about things.

V---- It's OK. Honestly go to PLAZA and get a better overall experience. i lived in the foothills for 3 and a half years and only real stong point is their hours and that they are cheaper than AJ's is.

Located on the same street as a BevMo and Total Wine. There is a vast selection of craft brews as well as imported beers from GB, Belgium and Germany. Most beers are on shelves, but there is a decent selection from the cooler. Just one employee was working when I went in, manning the cash register, so I didn't really interact with him much besides handing him the two bottles of beer I wanted and then swiping my debit card. Pretty standard service. Prices are comparable to places like Plaza, AJ's or Whole Foods. But when BevMo and Total Wine are right down the street, you don't really have to shop around for the good deals.
