This doesn't look like much from Route 15, but I stopped once for a bathroom break and was surprised to find an above-average beer store tucked away in there.

Selection is impressive, all things considered. A pretty nice assortment of bombers from Stone, Southern Tier, Lagunitas, Dogfish Head, and the other usual suspects. Also an above-average selection of craft six packs and the standard macro fare. They offer 10% discounts on individual beers when you buy six or more, which is a solid perk.

On the downside, about half of the beer is not refrigerated, and the freshness of some of their stock is a bit suspect. They still had 2009 Sierra Nevada Harvest Ale sitting around, along with a range of winter beers and Oktoberfests that must have been from last year as well. Not deal breakers, but you do need to pay attention to make sure you're not buying a stale IPA.
