Stopped in here at random while passing through town, and found a decent craft selection inside. Door county isn't exactly a craft mecca yet, so you have to take what you can get. Outside there was plenty of parking, and an old ornate sign with wooden olde english lettering and a coat of arms. Inside it was dark and somewhat dated, carpeted floors and lots of area dedicated to wine.

Beer was back and to the left, two freestanding craft coolers, skip the back doors, all macro and macro imports. Some low aisle shelves contained Door County Polka King Porter, full ranges of Alaskan, Sierra Nevada, Bells, New Glarus (Strawberry Rhubarb & Rasperry Tart), some Ale Asylum, Central Waters, Sprecher, Shipwrecked, Chimay, Hacker Pschorr, and a few others. It was pretty good for the area, i'm not aware of another good liquor store in this town unfortunately. For the breweriana collector, there were some old crates for sale from Denmark Brewing, which closed in the mid-2000's.

In one corner was a counter with UPS prices listed, so I think they ship packages from here too. The counter clerk was a friendly older fellow that knew about the cherry shortage leading to the current Belgian Red drought, and thought they'd come out with a new batch by the end of the year (not sure about that though).

Overall an okay experience, not sure how much turnover they have, but the selection was decent here.
