Re-Rating after a couple years. Disregard, scroll towards the bottom for the update*

this place has since been taken over by new management and these guys are serious about craft beer. I've seen at least two dozen crafts here I have not seen anywhere else in town.

Two good-sized shelves of single bottles and plenty of rarities on the inner shelves in 12, 6, and 4 packs. All reasonably priced and FRESH, Freshness has become a real rarity around Monroe.

Another plus is if you see something you want in a pack but not a single the guy will let you take a bottle out, which is something I have never encountered elsewhere.

The staff is very friendly and knows their stuff. I'm sure once the seasonals start rolling around I can be confident to place my orders here. Officially my new craft beer shop in town.

Also, don't count out the HUGE selection of liquor. Biggest I have ever seen in a store of this size. This is a one stop shop for everything, whether you're a seasoned craft drinker, just getting started, or you're just looking for some Vodka and Budweiser.

EDIT : UPDATE AS OF 2017.

This place has gone down hill. Owners don't care about product freshness. Will sell you old beer without giving a shit and promise it's all fresh. Selection is still nice but unfortunately buying a brew here is like playing Russian roulette. Sometimes you get something fresh, or at least still drinkable, but 70% of the time it's six months up to YEARS old. If you see something here, check the release dates on here or you may be burned big time.

This place has a surprisingly great selection (not only beer, but for liquor and wine as well). The staff is also very helpful and friendly too!

This is a pretty good-sized placed to find an assortment of pretty much anything. The beer really isn't the focus except for the party douche crowd; there's lots of BMC in all kinds of packaging. The selection of craft is some pretty good stuff, but it isn't a lot and there's nothing I couldn't find somewhere else. Service here was good, and the people working there will actually ask if you need help with anything if you've been searching for a while. They also have some helpful knowledge. In terms of liquor, the selection is great; in lieu of beer, I picked up a couple unusual but highly praised bourbons.
