Finally got to visit this place. While the selection was phenomenal, a lot of the prices were CRIMINAL. I've never seen such a markup before, this place was more expensive than DeCicco's! Beverage stores are typically a little less expensive than supermarkets, delis, gas stations, etc. Just to give an example, a six pack of Carlsberg Elephant was $14.39! Not that I was interested in buying it, but there's no way its worth that much. And I could tell that the beer that seemed reasonably priced was outdated/old. Amazing store but too much money, I won't be returning any time soon.

I rated the quality as 2.25 based on price, not sure how the ratings for this work. The service I marked a three. Even though nobody asked to help me, its not something I care that much about as I prefer to explore on my own.

This has the vibe and feel of a big box store. The selection here is amazing. Found everything that I wanted and more. Plenty of local and national breweries represented. The prices here tend to be a bit higher than other places around it, but I suppose that is the premium paid for one stop shopping. Certainly the place I would go to if I am in the area.

Great selection and service. I love the ability to buy virtually any beer as a single. My complaint is that prices are high but maybe it only seems that way to me as a visitor from MD.

Awesome place. Great beer selection, singles for sale- make your own 6 pack. Home brewing section, meads ciders. Beers on Tap for Growler filling with free tasting before committing, Some beers were a little pricier, Prairie Bomb was $11 and $8 down the street at DeCicco's. Overall great place.

I stopped in on my way back from NY to CT. The amount of beer here is amazing. I was able to purchase many beers that I dont have access to in CT. I also bought and filled a growler, where the staff was very helpful. Be careful on some of the bottle dates for IPAs, if you are the type to drink "super fresh" beers, non issue to me but I did see some 2014s.

For such a massive store, the staff is not knowledgeable or helpful at all. Great selection, though.

Half time has a great selection of beer and a decent home brew section. Their knowledge of beer is fantastic however their home brew skills are mediocre. Overall a great place, the employees are incredibly helpful.

This is a grocery store for beer. I've only been there a couple of times and haven't spoken to the staff, so i can't rate their knowledge. Well organized place with a great selection.

Hands down my favorite beer store, if not favorite my place on Earth and you're not likely to find a larger selection of beer anywhere. Huge sales floor with knowledgeable and friendly staff on hand to assist the novice to the most experienced craft beer enthusiasts. Large, rotating tap selection available with growler service and there are often free tasting events on weekends. This place also has craft soda and cigars although I only ever go there for beer. If you can go to only 1 source for craft beer ever again, this is the place.

The selection is second to none.

22 Taps for growlers is top notch.
