I spotted this store while in town on business and eating dinner at Burtons Grill in the same shopping center. I was glad I went in. The interior is not fancy, but it is bright, clean and spacious. The staff were friendly when I talked to them at checkout, but they didn't seem too knowledgeable about beer, nor did they make an effort to greet customers or see if they needed help. None of that bothered me, since I was there intending to wander the beer shelves independently.

For me the store's standout characteristic is its large selection. They have beer coolers running the entire length of one side wall. The non-refrigerated beer selection is even bigger, taking up the back wall and several islands of shelves. Altogether this made for a massive selection of everything from small regional brewers to the West Coast and international craft makers. I couldn't discern much of an organization to how the beers were arranged, but if you just wanted to wander and see what you could find, like I did, it was a great stop. Prices seemed reasonable to me for this high cost of living area, but I don't have enough experience here to know how they compare to other nearby stores.

Was around the corner in a hotel.

Selection was good. A whole wall of cold cases. Back wall included a good amout of bombers and good brands. Solid selection of locals, including Jack's Abbey, Mystic, Night Shift, etc.

Service was pretty non-existant.

The main thing that I noticed was a lot of old beer. Went in on a Saturday in late June, and there were fall & winter seasonals still around. Enough to stand out. It made me wary to buy any kind of hoppy beers.
