This was the text that I submitted to get this place approved:

Kind of a "hole in the wall" place was a surprise as it is stocked with cold and room temperature selections from Great Lakes, Bell's, Weyerbacher, Southern Tier, Stone, many authentic Belgians, German, Japanese, many other micro breweries. They had recently released beers too although many of the bottles had dust on them which was a negative. It remains a real possibility for a BA to find a gem or two there.

Here is my "full" review:

Quality: The quality is below average which is disappointing given the reasonably good quality selection that they offer. Dust on bottles, cluttered boxes and bottles stacked on shelves everywhere. Also the coolers are far too cold. One image that was not pleasing were some very old looking Gulden Draak 4 packs in a near freezing fridge. I almost bought them to save them from this environment.

Service: Just fine but I did not require any service. A Korean young lady behind the counter watching Korean Soap Operas on a PC was pleasant but did not demonstrate any significant beer knowledge. I did not expect significant service and I did not get it.

Selection: Surprisingly good selection for a place that does not look like much at all from the outside (or, frankly from the inside with the visible dust on many of the bottles and cluttered boxes in the store). The beers that I recalled to submit this place are visible above. This was certainly a larger and more satisfying selection than your average "beverage store."
