A little down the way from the Winco on McCarran, away from any other distinguishable entity, in a new building, this is the nicest appearance of any Ben's. Unfortunately, it really stresses the wine and hard liquor, its beer space is very limited.

They had Abacus on the shelf for some time here. That was nice. The service sucks. They don't know shit about shit here. Called, hey got Parabola, barrel aged stout from Firestone Walker? Yeah, lots of it. Went over there 5 minutes later. No Parabola. "Oh well, we have the oatmeal stout, I thought that's what you meant, here you go, and its even cheaper." No thanks uninformed asshole, you made me make a trip from somewhere that already had that. Never been any help on anything else. Selection wise, other than the Abacus aberration, nothing you can't find anywhere else in Reno.

Go to the Lakeside Ben's or Craft instead. The only value this place has is if you are broke and live in the area and can't afford to get better stuff, or its one of those Abacus moments where they don't realize they have the good stuff, and the learned people don't come here anyways.
