I knew about this place as a kid, except it only moved a couple of block to a bigger place. The store has the aroma of roasted coffee. The gentleman behind the counter was very helpful. He told that he had over 200 different beers and you get a discount for buy 6 or more beers. Any discount is better than none. There were a few beers there that I haven't tried. I bought a couple beer and plan on returning. They are always trying to expand their beer selection. When I was there there was a broker trying to get them to order more beer. The more the better. The quality of the beer is great the carry a few more imports than domestics. The Value is a reasonable to a tad expensive. The last thing the gentleman told me that he has tried most of the beer in the cooler and recommended a coffee porter. The coffee porter was great so the guy know a little bit about beer.

A nice little bottle shop with a decent selection of beer for the area. Usually friendly depending on who you catch working. Overall a pretty good joint in a place that is certainly NOT a beer mecca like Pocatello.

A few miles off the interstate, near the college campus. The Grapevine looks like it took over an old gas station corner location. Beer Specials, Wine Specials and new release poster were plastered in front windows.

We walked into a pleasant greeting and an aroma of coffee(They sell coffee too). They were having a wine tasting - 5 glasses for 5$. It was interesting but I was there for beer.

They have about 9-10 doors of cold beer with half the doors singles only. For Southern Idaho this place is the mix a six spot. The had one door dedicated to imports. Ayinger, Coopers, Becks, Heineken, Weinstephaner ect. The Next few doors were all American craft singles. Alaskan, Big Sky, Sierra Nevada, Ninkasi, Stone, and many more. I had no problem putting together a box of beer. Plenty to choose from and a few labels that were new to me.

The gave me a discount on the box of beer. The employee was chatting beer up with me at the counter. Overall good experience and nice people.
