have found some rare beers here, though some of their stuff does sit on the shelf for a little longer than one would like.

also, as far as I am aware, they do not do the typical "hide all the good stuff" in the back. If they have it, it goes out on the shelf.

Nice selection. But some stuff sits out when it should be chilled. They should stuff the cooler with the IPAs and let the adjuncts sit out. All the Clown Shoes, Founder's, and Allagash takes a back seat to the Bud Light. Although I can't really blame them because every time I have been there there has been a Bud or Coors purchase in front of me and behind.

This place has a large selection, but I ran into a few problems here. First and foremost, they had a stack of cases of Sierra Nevada Hoptimum sitting at room temperature with a bottling date six months in the past. They also generally don't seem to have any idea what to put in the cooler (half the cooler space is macrobrews and lots of great IPAs on the shelves), no one there seems to know anything about beer, and some of the staff was not friendly. They might have a decent amount of beer, but check the dates on the bottles before you buy!
