A clean, spacious store with an ajoining cheese shop/deli that may be worth checking out in forthcoming visits. All the beer is kept in the cooler and most of the domestic craft located in a walk-in cooler. Not exactly the best enviroment to look around but you know the beer has been stored correctly. Not the most extensive selection as it is surpassed by many stores in the metro. Did not see any employees helping customers but they were friendly and helpful at checkout. Prices are at or just barely above the cities prices. Good store for the neighborhood, but not really a destination store.

My unofficial "Lager Headquarters".
Ordered on-line from here several times.
Great customer service, great packaging, and "as promised" experience every time.
Keep carrying my favorite Midwest Lagers, and I'll keep ordering !!

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.
