I'm SHOCKED to see the bad reviews here! I've gone to this place a dozen times at least, and I've always been impressed. Their selection is excellent. Their people (who admittedly can be busy and hurried) absolutely know their beer. I've gotten solid recommendations, and their ability to get specific beers is excellent. Service? Well, I was there on Saturday and the guy asked if I was looking for anything in particular. I told him what I was after, and said I'd get a case if he could get it. He said, "like" us on FB, and send a note about what you're after, and we'll order it and let you know when it's in. I got on FB and "liked." I sent a note, they immediately replied with "thumbs up." 3 days later, they messaged and said it's here. I'd call that pretty awesome service. I've gotten so much here that I can't find anywhere else. Love Savor Growl.

Should have read the reviews before stopping. The clerk (short tubby fella) was beyond rude. I asked a few questions and each response was more off putting. He could not have possibly been less helpful or bigger Ahole if he tired. I was shocked and couldn't believe that actually happened until I read the reviews here and apparently the worst customer service possible is all in a days work for this place. The worse store, beer or otherwise, I've ever had the displeasure of visiting... Avoid this business!!!

Not the kind of beer store you want to go to.

Over-priced by ALOT, the owner is extremely rude and not helpful at all.

The selection is subpar and the entire atmosphere is lacking.

Do not go here! Owner posts that he has hard to get beers and when you go there they don't have them and then he try's to sell you something else. Way better options and HONEST vendors in the area. Never again!

Agree with other reviews. Pricing is very suspect and the service is typically nil. Good selection of bottles and drafts though.

Staff is not the most knowledgeable/helpful when looking for specifics, but if you go in knowing what you like/want, you should find it here.

Expect to get over-charged. Expect the 6-packs, cases, and single bottles you grab to not be price marked. When checking out at the register, you can expect the clerk to guess at what each price should be, by rounding up about $2 bucks each item.

...after awhile you wonder if the owners TEACH the clerks to ring things in a few dollars more than marked ???

This dump has permanently lost my business.... and that includes any establishment these 2 douches ever own in the future.

These crooks illegally buy beer from other stores and/or not in our area and resell it. Classy.

Service was quite terrible both times there. I tried to give it a second chance, but had the same result. I tried to ask what was new and/or notable on tap and the guy behind the counter replied with "I dunno, we have like 70 something beers on tap." I'm pretty sure he was high as a kite as well. Won't go back there with so many other better places around like Weilands, Palmers, and Pace High Carryout where they value their customers.

Too expensive. Horrible service. The owner is not someone who you want to give your hard earned beer allowance to. Not to mention, he made national beer news by buying another stores whole allocation of Hopslam in hops to resell it at a marked up price. HOPSLAMGATE 2014!

Go to Weilands. Go to Palmers. Do NOT go here for beer.
