I passed this location on my commute to work for about a year, then finally decided to stop in. Peterson's is located in a small strip wall (next door to the walgreens) and is fairly accessible from route 59.

Like other Peterson's locations, you can tell this is mostly a wine store. But, the selection is better than your average BMC + imports store. Walking straight back to the coolers, I see a couple options each for Bells, Two Brothers, Goose Island (including bourbon county), Rogue, Metropolitan, Sam Adams and the usual english imports you'd see at a gas station. A friend told me that he had seen Oberon minikegs there, so my guess is once in a while they get some cool stuff in. But, the craft beer selection is really limited to about 2-3 doors worth of coolers and a couple cabinets on the floor.

The one woman working there was very friendly and even remarked that she had the GI BCBS and enjoyed it, but then promptly invited me to a wine tasting at the store the following week. She added me to their email list (I agreed) and have been back one time since to pick up a 6 pack of Bells Best Brown. So, I'm sure I'll be back again because the prices are fair, they're friendly and it's very convenient for me.
