This is not a "craft beer" store but WOW do they have a lot of wine, spirits, beer and even cigars. I have to admit that I was fairly blown away by the wine selection. The beer selection was impressive but most are stored on shelves. Ok for a lot but wasn't proper storage for a lot as well. I grabbed a couple to check and didn't see a date on 1 and the other expired 100113, today is 110813. It wasn't even on sale for technically being expired. The massive store only had about 6 beer coolers and 4 were dedicated to "craft beer." The rest was for imports, Bud, Coors, etc. They had about 12 taps for growler fills. An ok option for an area that lacks true "mom & pop" craft beer stores but it is like shopping at the grocery store. If I'm back in the area again, I may shop there for wine and maybe a growler fill if I happen to be carrying an empty in my car. Last thing, I grabbed their 16-page flyer/ad mailer at the front of the store on my way out...only 1 page featured beer.

Overall: Total wine is like a grocery store, but you can still find fresh beers. Selection is also good, plenty of craft beers to choose from, specially popular ones

A: Stale. Just like shopping at any grocery store. It's definitely not geared toward customer service.

Q: The quality is hit and miss as it is with most stores of this type. I would be cautious as to the freshness of IPAs and Pales here. I just get the feeling some of the stock has been sitting a while. I did but a BB XXV off the shelf that was good to go with no issues.

S: It's there when you need it but you won't find anyone at this location who knows what their talking about

S: Probably 1,000+ beers to choose from, not to mention the growlers to go. You won't anything uber rare but if you're looking for distro'd beers this place should have it.
