A small wine shop and bistro located between downtown Canal and all the new growth on the north side. This place focuses on wine, but has a decent selection of craft beer hidden in a small cooler off near the back of the shop.

The beer is all stored in a cooler, so freshness is not much of an issue. The selection usually includes 10-12 different styles, in a mix of six packs and bombers. A lot of this depends completely on what the distributor decides to drop off, as there is not really a "beer person" in the store. That being said, they have always been open and interested when I talk about craft beer and cellaring beer just like wine.

The selection is not over the top, but it is good for the area, and much better than you will find in the local grocery or liquor stores. Hopefully if more people buy beer there, they may be convinced to expand the selection. There is room in the cooler.

The restaurant side also serves beer with meals, but as is often the case, while they have a good selection of wine by the glass, most of the beer is the usual BMC.

A good local place to support with nice staff and a lot of potential.
