vibe: 2 | quality: 3 | service: 3 | selection: 2.5

Made a quick stop here today to check it out. It was a very average and dingy little shop that had a decent amount of micros. Geno's nearby has about 3-4 times the selection.

All the beer was in the back coolers along the wall. Micros and imports were in the middle, some imports were grouped by country. There seemed to be a majority of German imports, Hofbrau, Weihenstephaner, Optimator were the ones that stood out. Alpha King, Pride & Joy, DFH 90 min., Two Hearted, and Lagunitas were the highlights of the micro selection. The only rarity to be found were bottles of Mexican Coke. The cooler space was divided 50/50 with macros and wine coolers.

We were greeted once walking in, and the counter service was ok. Didn't get any beer help. Overall it was your average liquor store, there wasn't anything special about it, but you could find a few craft beers here if you're local.

This liquor store is run my a greek husband and wife and they are very helpfull and friendly. There is a pretty decent assortment of micro brews such as Dogfish Head, Bells, Magic Hat, Flying Dog, and Samual Smiths to name a few. Also there are many other imported beers in both bombers and multipacks.

They had Dogfish Head 60, 90, and 120 minute IPA.
Bells Expidition Stout, Two Hearted Ale.
Several Magic Hat and Flying Dog tastees.
The Entire Bud Miller Coor Heineken Corona lineup... They also have some unique greek liquor odities.
