Apparently they're having a "soft opening" right now. According to a friend, they haven't had their grand opening yet, but while they're stocking the store and getting up to full speed, they're allowing sales.

I visited last week and they had a huge selection of craft beer (especially for the city/region) with many bombers, and large selections of refrigerated and unrefrigerated beers. They even have a free bottle chilling machine in the store, so you can get even the room-temp bottles to drinking temp before leaving.

They give you a small discount if you choose to pay cash or debit, which is pretty neat. Also, some of their products have an additional discount if you use their little frequent-customer keychain bar-code scanner thing, which you can get for free by filling out a short application.

They also carry branded beer glasses, which is great... haven't really seen too much of that in this city. Finally got my hands on a Duvel tulip.

The employees are very nice, and the manager offered to special order some beers for me and didn't rush through it or act indifferent or aloof like they do at many of the other beer stores in the area when you call them up.

Overall, probably my new favorite place to get beer in the city. (though Side Door Liquors will still be a strong second, if not tied)
