Great little selection of bobmbers, with some special releases lasting a little bit longer than other places...Was able to get Dogfish Head 75 minute here after it had disappeared from some other stores. Pretty standard upper-level craft selection of DFH/Lagunitas/Ballast Point/Bear Republic/Troegs/Harpoon/Etc. The staff is pretty helpful, offering to order anything they could get their hands on. Asked if they could get any Maine Beer Co and there was Peeper in the cooler within a week. I'm an IPA nut, so I'm always looking at bottle dates/codes...they do an average job of keepign things fresh. Good go-to on this end of town.

Hennessy's was once a dusty mom and pop sort of news and magazine shop, where you could find all of your local and national newspapers and magazines, a limited supply of stationary and greeting cards, plus have copies made. Off to the side was a limited supply of chewing gum, candy, cigarettes, beer and lottery tickets.

Today however, you might be pleasantly surprised to find an entire rack, center stage, dedicated to some very desirable beers. Four rows of the cooler section are micro or craft. The macro-stuff is pushed off to the end of the row...as it should be.

All the stuff that used to be Hennessy's is still the same, only now you can be sure to fine a good beer or two to take home.
