I walked into this store at the end of a strip mall and realized I have been here before around 8 years ago. But it was down Excelsior Boulevard between 169 and 100. But this store has an important difference from The Four Firkens. They specialize in spirits, especially whiskey, and have craft beer to draw more people in the store. Really impressed with the person working. I am no neophyte when it comes to whiskey, but a customer asks about a whiskey I never heard of and the person working instantly knew what he was talking about and offered at least 3 alternatives as well. The beer selection is somewhat small, but carefully selected. There is some AAL's and ciders as well. Surprised they have kept some bottles of Jolly Pumpkin around. When was the last time that was distributed to this state? Three years ago?

Not sure where to place this as this is not a craft beer centric establishment, but some good stuff can be found here. Not impressed with the beer layout and they need to expand the cooler footprint to put more of it in refrigeration. But if you wanted some obscure whiskey, I would highly recommend this place.
