3.8/5  rDev -1%
vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4 | service: 3.5 | selection: 4

Specs is a difficult place for me to review. I say this because I generally don't like chain liquor stores due to their limited selection of quality craft beers. Specs, however, does have a good selection of common beers from the larger craft breweries (Rogue, Dogfish Head, Stone, etc..) and tend to carry a good selection of local beers too.

With that said, don't expect to find rare beers, or limited releases here because you will be disappointed. Come expecting a solid selection with the added bonus of being able to browse an impressive variety of spirits and wine.

Only complaint comes in the service department. They consistently greet and ask you if you need help finding anything which is great, but when I had a beer question they either didn't know the answer or provided incorrect information. Just saying, a more knowledgable staff would be appreciated.
