Nice little store with good selection of craft beers domestic and international. Got a good greeting from the clerk and also curious about the like and choice. First end cap has some high end single bottles with the names of 50/50 Eclipse, Goose Island Lolita, Juliet, Halia, Madame Rose, Bruery Sucre, Rueze, SOME FFF, All Maine Brewing products, Hoppin Frog, Solemn Oath and lot more. only 13 door cooler but got good selection of everyday craft revolutions, lagunitas, two brothers, bells, sierra Nevada, left hand, dogfish and lots of ciders in the cooler. Surprise was the opposite side of cooler on warm shelf. Lots of different hard to find beers. They also have make your own 6 pack section which has decent amount actually large amount of beers approx. 130 I guess. Then came to counter and talk to the clerk who is actually owner too and BJ is his name. Talked about beers and some specialty beers and surprisingly he had most of the answers. So I would say ultimately it was a good experience and decent collection for beer lovers...

Stopped here on a whim a week or so ago, there were some Revolution posters in the window that happened to catch the eye. It's located in a strip mall shopping center, opposite from some sports bar (listed on BA with a bad review) and next door to a great little diner called Benny's Place.

Inside the store isn't huge, but the shelves are well stocked. Some craft in the coolers, noticed Half Acre, Off Color, Revolution cans, and Firestone Walker right away. Facing the coolers was a short aisle of entirely craft, with an endcap that seemed to feature seasonals and new arrivals. Selection focused on US craft, but there were a decent number of Belgian, German, and UK imports. There were some nice finds like Apex Predator, Straightjacket, and Juliet. Everything I picked up seemed to be in code, the store itself was also clean and well lit.

At the counter the clerk was friendly and mentioned they were working on opening a second location in downtown Oswego in the near future. All in all this was a great shop for craft beer in an underserved area.

Weird shill reviews just popped up within hours of each other... gee that's not suspicious at all.
