For being a small store, this place rocks! They had lots of goodies that I would not be able to find in my home state of Kentucky. You can get all sorts of Belgian goodies like De Dolle, St. Bernardus, Westvleteren, Westmalle, Rochefort, and others. They had a good amount of German beer as well, including the ever elusive Uerige Sticke. There were some other rarities I've been looking for, like Thomas Hardys 2003, Troegs Mad Elf, and Dolle Teve. There are some good micros to be had as well, including DeGroens, Victory, Magic Hat, and others. The service is good, even though you can't break 6-packs to buy individual bottles. The prices are decent as well. Also if you are into wine and cheese, this place can fill your needs for them as well. A very nice find!

Stopped in after reading the reviews. As others have commented, a nice small store that you would not really expect to have much of a selection. While there, I picked up a couple of DFH offerings, a Rochefort and a Belgium trippel that I had not tried before (name escapes me). Selection was not huge, but it is the type of place you are always going to find something good to take home. At a casual glance, the wine and liquor areas appeared to offer a decent choice as well. Service was not offered, but I didn't particularly care as I was just looking. Worth stopping at if you are in the area.

This is a great little place which you might not guess from looking at it. Superb selection for such a tiny store, with a large range of local micros and a good selection of Belgians as well. Lots of singles are available here, more than the nearby Well's. Service was OK---they originally didn't give me my 20% discount for purchasing a dozen singles and when I asked for it, the guy claimed it didn't apply to beer! This is despite the fact that the signs are all over all of the beer cases. Anyway, he got it all straightened out for me in the end. This is definitely a place I visit regularly to restock my refrigerator.

Great little selection in a tiny little store that is evenly dedicated to wine, macros, and micros. You'll get all your favorite local micros at an okay price. They don't have a daunting selection, but it will suffice for the everyday jones. They generally seem to get several brews that you won't find anywhere. Very nice selection of Belgian and Belgian-like brews. Decent amount of bombers and singles to get your karma up.

The folks who work here know the product well and can help steer you in the right direction. (Recently received a 5 minute dissertation when I requested room temp beer from the back to stash in my cellar...)

They are about a one or two mile drive to Well's, where one could stock up on just about anything. They appear to turn over selection pretty well, something one would have a problem with with Wells--beware the cheap six packs over at that joint.
