I dropped in at Total Wine today to pick up a mixed dozen, as I often do. I've been impressed with Total Wine ever since they moved in. When I heard they were putting one in (shortly after Washington privatized liquor sales), I assumed it would be all wine & booze. Thankfully, I was quite wrong!

They have perhaps 1,000 different beers available in singles, sorted by style, with sections for limited release and seasonal offerings. They even have a printed-out list of all their beers available as singles so that you can peruse the list as well as just scanning the shelves for the beer you want -- a nice little touch. Available, too, of course, are many sixers, half-racks and cases of better-known brews and macros -- there's really something here for everyone.

There are 20 taps and three growler-filling stations in the back, manned by enough employees that I've never seen a wait there. Mostly local offerings are on tap, with the occasional Sierra Nevada or Lagunitas. Nothing really rare, but still quite impressive.

The store is immaculately clean and well-organized, heavily staffed with friendly folks and the beer guys seem quite knowledgeable. I know it's a big chain store, but their success seems entirely warranted.

This is a box store, so the wine is essentially non-existent, but with all the alcohol they have everywhere, there is facade or a good time occurring. Everything that I saw they offered was of good quality. Whenever someone walked past me, they asked if I need help. That is a good sign. The selection was very good, and the prices were even better. Compared to the prices in Bellingham, this place was Walmart. When in the area, I would definitely come here again to check out what's on the shelves.
