Bottom Line: Good selection at a reasonable price. Small store and fairly knowledgable staff.

I've been going to Winthrop for about 2 years now and I've seen how the diversity of their beers has gone up. It is a good place to pick up different quality craft brews. The staff are typically knowledgeable of the beer they are selling. The beers here are cheaper than Kingdom but they lack the high diversity of obscure beers that Kingdom has. This is not to say that you couldn't find the obscure beer here or there but I consider that the trade off of price vs selection and finding that balance in between.

Overall I consider this a great place to pick up fresh craft beer.

This is a new up-and-coming beer store in the Brandon area. They aren't in a permanent building yet and are currently in a pretty cramped space. They have five fridges in the back for beers with just a little bit of overflow for twelve packs. Regardless, they have a pretty good and eclectic beer section maintained by someone who obviously loves beer. They have BeerAdvocate ratings posted on the shelf for almost every craft beer that they carry (to be honest, I didn't even look at the macros), which is great for quick shopping. All the beers are fresh and reasonably priced. A great local stop that has the potential to be one of the greats in the area if they expand their selection when they move into their permanent building. It's not quite a Kingdom Spirits yet selection wise (what is?), but has a price-advantage that makes it worth checking out.

EDIT 1/16/11. This is still a great beer shop for those in the Brandon area. They're really starting to diversity their beers with a nice selection of sours and saisons. It's the only place I've seen bottles of Swamp Head Saison du Swamp around here. Their turnover is also increasing, the word is getting out about this stop.
