3.7/5  rDev -18.9%

Definitely a decent beer store. Its not a huge liquor store so to see an entire aisle and several cases filled with craft beer is excellent. Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, Stone, Avery, Troegs, Great Divide, Bear Republic, Smuttynose, and some international beers as well.

I haven't seen many places to mix-a-six around here, so was excited to check that selection out. Its not huge, but fairly diverse. Definitely some not great items like old summer ales. Plus the bottles on the bottom shelves were very dusty. However, I was pleased with my 6-pack for $10.50.

One of the guys working came over and tried to give me some help. Normally I am happy to discuss beer with folks, but his attitude came across as rather condescending (perhaps because I am female) and he also came across as boastful about their mix-six selection which was decent, but not great.

However, that was just 1 interaction with 1 guy working there. I'd still go back for their selection, although maybe not their mix-a-six selection.

Great selection of craft and specialty beers. Not quite the same since John left, but still should be able to find some goodies here..

This is my go to place for great , great beers.

I walk up and down the aisles with amazed smile on my face looking at the amazing variety of beers on the shelf. Great selection , helpful staff, and it's where I pick up my copy of beer advocate. They have a section which has rarities with limited purchases. That's why I visit this store. Always something unique, cool and worth tasting on the shelf here.

If there was a drawback is that it is in a strip mall next to a Shaws Supermarket. What they need is a bar next door with 36 frequently rotated taps. That aside, a great place to hunt and find beers from all over.
