I can't believe noone has reviewed this place yet. I was here last year when I was in Ft Wayne, and when I went back this year I went again. Great selection and they moved around the store a bit since my last visit. On the far left hand wall is where all of the beer is at, along with a huge walk in cooler on the back wall. There are a fair number of bombers on a small rack of shelves, I kind of wish there was a larger selection of bombers. On the rest of the wall there are 6 packs with singles available on the side of every six pack. I basically went in here to stock up on singles of New Belgium(haven't had many of their offerings) and they had more than enough of a selection of their 12 ounce bottles. I'd say probably 70-80% of the 12 ounce offerings were sitting there. Including the Somersault, Oktoberfest, and Snow Day seasonals. They also had a couple of the lips of faith series in the cooler.

The walk in cooler is huge and I would say about half of it is dedicated to craft beer. There is one or two doors with bombers; a couple doors of cold singles; and quite a few doors of 4/6 packs. If you are looking for FFF then you will find quite a few here, almost all of the 6 pack offerings are there along with a few bomber offerings(no Dreadnaught or Zombie Dust though but I expected that.) If you walk into the cooler there is a whole back stack of shelves there are plenty of 4/6 packs and singles of stuff that is out in the warm shelves. As with all Belmont locations there is 10% off mix 6 and 15% off mix 12 packs. I have saved quite a bit on some of my hauls because of this. Prices are about average if a slight bit above normal.

There is usually someone out on the floor to answer questions, and give suggestions. One of them gave me a free Founders bumper sticker last year as well. The quality is good, I checked some dates on IPAs and such and they were all within date range.

Overall this is definitely worth a stop, it is only a short drive from downtown.
