This store is an interesting mix. They have a decent sized beer cooler with about 140 choices but also have an impressive wine selection and a few liquors. The atmosphere tends to be geared more towards wineouxs including a walk-in cellar dedicated to high-end wines and champagnes. The quality of beer covers a fair amount of the spectrum. They go from Grolsh to Bells, Ayinger, various abbey ales, lambics, and other quality choices. The price range is a bit odd. The chepo beers and the more expensive beers seemed to be a bit overpriced, while the mid-ranged stuff is about right. The staff's willing to help if they're not overwhelmed by a wine tasting. It's the only place I've seen where you can get a bottle of Grolsh and a bottle of Cristal in the same place.

Overall it's a decent place to stop at if you're in the area and also want to check out some good wines, but other stores in town have better beer variety and prices. I went to "B.C." afterward and found some of the beers I was looking at here for roughly 30% less.
