If you happen to find yourself on the strip in downtown Palm Springs, this is the only spot for somewhat decent take home bottles of craft beer. They have about 150 or so different bottles available and they also have a lounge in the back where you can drink your purchases if you choose. They had 4 or 5 beers on tap in the lounge as well. Bit of a warning; the prices are quite high and for some reason most of the bottles are laying on their sides in wine racks. The shop owner was very friendly, but he seems to know more about cigars than he does about beer.

Limited selection, hard to read tap list, don't really want to mix cigar smoke with my beer in a realitivly small place... Small bottle selecction. Didn't look at that many palm spring bottle shops, so this could have been a stand out, but not from the perspective of coming from LA.

A serious Oasis in the desert! I've been here a handful of times now and this place is nothing short but impressive. I guess the lounge/bar in the back is fairly new (since 2009?). There's always 10 micro-brews on tap and the prices per beer is definitely not as high as I was expecting. Prices range $6-12 in 10 oz and 16 oz pours.

The staff is extremely knowledgeable about their wine and craft beer. One member is actually a certified sommelier and studying for her Cicerone certification. Awesome!! They also offer beer flights until I think 5pm which is great because a few of the beers they had on tap I had never heard of.

In the front they have beer to go (all on display which I was kind weary about until the owner told me they had them all in the cooler in the back to take to-go ice cold) and a very nice walk in humidor. If you're the smoking type- the staff will pair your beer with your cigar. I had a Camacho triple maduro with the Firestone Parabola 2013. Outstanding!

This place is a must go-to on your list if you're in Palm Springs. You'd think there'd be more places like this downtown (or in Palm Springs at all for that matter) but I have never found it. Maybe it's hiding. But as far as beer lounges go- this place is high class without the formal dress code with a staff that clearly love their jobs and their beer.

went into this shop when we left matchbox its on the strip downtown area on a one way road its a cigar shop first but a sign outside said craft beer inside, craft brew is hard to come by in palm springs so i went in to check it out to my surprise this place had a nice selection of bombers and singles, both domestic and import they had stone,lostabbey,alesmith,bear republic,green flash and many others bombers were stored on thier side on the left of the store and singles on the right, thru another door is a cigar bar with a few taps, i did not go in, but did talk to the owner for several minutes his forte is cigars but he does have a very nice selection of brews i gave him several others to consider and he wrote them downif you are on vacation and need a craft fix for the hotel this place has some good finds although pricey and may have some age on them
