The Corner Store is a fairly nice place in a good location. Parking was terrible, so my wife had to circle the block while a friend and I looked inside.

Selection was very good. Chimay, Westmalle, Duvel, Sweet Water, Flying Dog, Heavy Seas and many more. Cooler with a very good selection of singles too. Create-a-six-pack was available as well.

The service was horrible. The guy working tonight offered no help whatsoever and actually encouraged us to leave so he could take his break. We did leave at that point with some nice stuff, but less than we had intended to buy. Good thing, because the store about a block down the street had excellent service and an even better selection.

Whoever owns The Corner Store needs to re-train at least one of their employees.

Great selection of beer, and at least one knowledgeable guy on staff. The employees are pretty friendly, except for this one girl who works there. Disclaimer: the store is not open 24 hours, even though the sign above it clearly says "24 hours". When I asked about this, the useless girl said "that sign is like 20 years old".

This is where I go to get my Good People Beer. Also the only place in town I've seen Cigar City beers. Great selection of Bell's stouts too. Their prices are reasonable, much better than a recently-closed store just up the street. As of right now, I'd say this is the best place in Tuscaloosa to get beer.

If you live in the Tuscaloosa, Alabama area and are looking for a great selection of craft beer at the best prices in town, look no further than the Corner Store. They have a very extensive selection of Tripel's and a large variety of other styles like Good People Brown Ale, Cigar City Jai Alai IPA & Maduro, Bell's Oberon & Two Hearted, several from different selections from Flying Dog, Great Divide, Sweet Water, Sierra Nevada (I know that they do have Torpedo Extra IPA on hand), and others. If you live in the Tuscaloosa area, I highly recommend you visit.
