This is a small shop that focuses more on wine but still features a decent craft beer section. Some refrigerated. Have never encountered anything rare or that couldn't be found at any other store. Prices seem to be a dollar or two higher than other stores.

This is a great new liquor store near downtown Edwardsville. It's located beneath the new lofts so it's a brand new building and the build they did on the inside is beautiful.

This is primarily a wine place and the selection of wine is amazing. On top of that, they have large liquor selection of all quality alcohol. But the main event for beer nerds is the beer wall. It's small, especially by comparison to the rest of the store but they definitely want to be beer friendly. I was excited by the selection because it is strictly imports and micro brews. The micro brew scene is typical for the area however the imports were the exciting part. They focused primarily on Belgian and German beers but they are not the typical imports you would see. I complimented one of the owners on the store and he graciously thanked me and said to let him know if there was anything I would like to see them carry. They are trying to really be beer friendly and are willing to bring on different stuff to please the geeks.

Since this is a new location all the items are still of high quality. Turnover will be the key to remaining high quality and only time will tell how that will go. I do plan to visit fairly regularly.

The service is great, the guys are pleasant and knowledgeable about wine at least, I've not questioned them on beer since I usually don't require much help in that area.

Selection is great overall, I listed the place as having about 50 different bottles, however I suspect they have more. Maybe 75ish?

Last, the value is what I've come to expect to pay for a good beer. So, par for the course.

I'm excited to see what time brings to this place.
