Stopped in twice after visiting other liquor stores in the area , this place has the best selection in town but it's not hard to be better than the rest when the rest suck. The guys in the evening crew were pretty nice and I picked up a few things , I stopped by in the AM and got some stuff and noticed some gumball head in the walk in cooler so I asked who the three floyds belonged to because I wanted to talk craft beer , seeing you can't get that in Arkansas someone here must drink craft beer , the lady was rude and said she doesn't know what I'm talking about , she and the guy had never heard of three floyds it must be a salesman sample why was I asking , I said I thought someone here might drink craft beer and wanted to ask some questions to which she replied she does drink craftbeer , she just doesn't know what three floyds is , I assume her drinking craft beer is blue moon.

All in all it was just an okay store , not bad not great by any means , but the best options in Hot Springs that I can tell

I've searched for a decent bottle shop in the Hot Springs area for several years with no luck. I found this place last year, and have stopped in and loaded the car a few times since. My last visit was early May. The owner apparently got serious about craft beer a couple years ago. Clean large store, with a great selection and large walk in cooler. Seemed to have about everything available in AR. Prices were very reasonable. It is a definite stop for me when in Hot Springs.

I went to several stores in the hot springs/hot springs village area and this was by far the best. The other store weren't even worth adding to BA... I will say, do not go to Arkansas expecting to find a lot of craft beer or top imports, you will be let down. Some of the things I was able to find (that arent available in my State, OK) were a large selection of Moylan's (I love the Hopsickle & Kilt Lifter), New Belgium, some Goose Island but unfortunately not the good Goose Island and a delicious Imperial IPA called Hopbox. I would recommend trying the Diamond Bear IPA while you are in Arkansas as I found it to be quite a tasty little treat. You can find all Diamond Bear products at this store as well.
