Old Rum's Liquor, nestled between a Goodwill and a "Family fun Center" in Emporia, Kansas, is a fantastic place to find local, national, and international beers. Though their selection of rum leaves a little to be desired, their beer selection is the best in the area. Boulevard, Free State, and Tallgrass are among their local staples while brands such as Odell, Sierra Nevada, and New Belgium (among many others) also fill the shelves. I was very pleased to walk in today to find that they now carry Stone Brewing Company! Got myself a sixer of the IPA and bottle of Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale! With fast and friendly service this place never disappoints. Great place!

This spot has the largest and most interesting selection of BA worthy beers in Emporia, according to my diligent research while spending a week in town earlier this month.

Expect a bunch of bombers from the smokestack series from Boulevard, O'Dell bombers of interest, several Lips of Faith offerings from New Belgium and the like. All the locals from Kansas, regionals from the Midwest and national heavy weights can be found here. FYI: Stone will be in Kansas by the end of July 2013.

Friendly guys behind the counter (something I was happy to find in the all the Emporia spots I visited) always a plus.

Just about a 1/3 of a mile from "downtown" Emporia's Commerical street and just a few blocks from well worth visiting burger spot "Doo b's"

I even like their slogan: " You dont have to drink to have fun, but why take the chance?"

Worth a visit to find the good stuff if in the Emporia, Ks. area
