vibe: 3 | quality: 2.5 | service: 4 | selection: 3.5

Looks to be primarily a wine store, but a decent selection of beer, all of which is in the cooler. People running the joint are nice if not very helpful - always on the phone or pc, probably because the store never seems to be busy. They have a subset of the selection at other stores but with higher prices, but it's a nice clean store and location and they print receipts(!). Rogue bombers, $2 Tucher 500s, Erdinger, Paulaner, Hacker-Pschorr, Avery, Fish Tale (randomly), Great Divide, Abita, Flying Dog, DFH, Sam Smith, etc. Scattering of Baltika and other random singles. One thing I've noticed is that a lot of their selection doesn't get any newer, the Euro beers in particular are all from spring 2008, which was fine when it was spring 2008, but not anymore...

Not a huge beer selection here but they do have a fair amount available including a nice assortment of Rogue and Belgian 750s. Most of their beer is available in the cold coolers they have along the side of the store while BMC is kept separate in the "beer cave".

They have some glassware available for reasonable prices when they can get it.

Staff have been friendly and helpful whenever I have been there.

Overall this is a good place to shop if you just want to pick something up, selection is not as great as other places but still very good.
