Of all the Ben's, this is thee best. Carries a wide selection of Bruery and Euro beers that you can't find in Reno. Mikkeller. Even have Lakefront stuff there. Lots of Belgians. Good selection of beers from Uinta, you don't see that everywhere.

The people working there, they don't really know a whole bunch, but they are usually pretty good natured and chatty, but not in a bothersome way.

A lot of high end stuff in here lately, but definitely the best Bruery selection I've seen in any store anywhere near here.

Most importantly, they carry a selection that is very different from other Ben's liquors.

Ben's is a chain alchol beverage entity that stocks there coolers with just a bit more micro than BMC. Some of the best beers are left at room temp on the floor. I was happy to see quite the selection of Bruery beers,Mikkiller and some others I can't remeber now.
Mostly the store is dedicated to Liqour and wine. It's that way because that is where the money is.
The store is located in a bit of an older area, a ways off the 395. Other Ben's locations have the same stock.
With Booze bros. being not too far away I would shop there myself.

Sent the wife on a beer quest during a recent business trip. Who gets to go to Reno on a business trip? I wish my company paid me to go find beers I can't get in Texas.

The haul:
Anderson Valley Anniversary IPA
Some kind of hefe with an upside down label on the bomber
A bunch of Buckbean canned beers
Mammoth 395 IPA

Oh now she tells me it is a Mammoth Floating Rock hefe

I guess this place rocks. This is the first successful attempt to bring back beer that she has completed.

My wife rocks!
