kind of your typical end of a strip mall plaza bottle shop... walk in and you're greeted with a large section contianing spirtis...go to the right half of the store, front corner is wine and back corner is the beer w/ some coolers along the far wall... staff is generally helpful and willing to put your name on a list if something special is coming out and you inquire...tricky part is the prices for those bottles are a bit more than what you'd find in a lot of other places in the area - but its part of supply/demand I guess... Othewise, I've tended to find some things here from time to time that have sold out in other locations - so its definitely a nice "Plan B" kinda spot...not sure how quick the rotation is though, as I've seen some older beers on the shelf for a while..

This store is in the corner space of a small strip mall, inhabiting what may have been a grocery store in a former life. Tile floors and florescent lights. Beer is in the back, a couple shelving units had a medium sized selection of craft and imports. A few BA & RB shelf tags were nice to see. The imports were a smattering of all types, with emphasis on Belgians. Rochefort, Maredsous, Chouffe, Reinaert, and others. No lambics besides Lindemans. The last lonely JP La Roja found it's way into my basket. There seemed to be good representation of craft breweries, 8 Lagunitas, 5-6 Bells, 4-5 Great Lakes, 5 Dark Horse, Great Divide, 6 or more 3 Floyds including out of season bombers. 4 cases of Moylans Hopsickle were stacked in the corner. There was a good assortment of craft in the coolers on the right side of the store. Also a dozen or so tallboy cans of Malt Liquor, including the elusive Camo Black Ice and Schlitz VSL. At the counter the clerk was nice enough, and had some Green Flash behind the counter that wasn't for sale apparently, but said it was available at their DeKalb store. Huh. Not as big of a place as Binnys down the street, but if you're by the river this is a closer stop.
