3.8/5  rDev -9.3%

Being from Wisconsin, I wanted to pickup some Surly Furious before I am out of the area. I got a 4 pack of Surly cans for about $10. They also had the Samuel Adams Longshot winners, which a friend of mine picked up.

The selection seems pretty good. Quite a fair selection of 4/6 packs in their cooler. A decent selection of individual bomber bottles as well, except no Lagunita's individual bombers. They had BrewDog and Moylans though.

Their employees don't seem too knowledgeable about beer though. I had a question about the BrewDog, and the question was brushed off. Perhaps they know more about wine or hard alcohol, but for the most part I felt like they didn't really care about the beer they were carrying.

Super clean, well organized store. Two things I noticed that made me feel good about shopping here were that 95% of the beer is kept in coolers, and things that were close to their "best by" date were marked down. This lets me know that they care about the beer having the best possible representation under their control. The other thing I liked was the staff recommendation tags. I have no idea who any of those people are, let alone know their palates, but if they're well organized and care about the beer as previously mentioned, I'm going to trust the staff is well educated on what they're recommending as well. Overall a very pleasant and comfortable shopping experience.
