After a heavy drinking session last night, we all needed some fresh air. So a trip with fellow BA’s, StoutLove77 and AlKayHolic in the Beer Mobile driven by DavidBanner, was organized, and we arrived at the place that the Hulk had been raving about for some time. Holy Shit, I cannot believe a place like this still exists.
It has several hundred types of Soda, I jest not, every type and flavor, many from what appear to be small craft producers. I have never seen anything this at all. As awesome a sight as it was, thankfully DavidBanner had not brought us here for the Sodas. For after the first few Supermarket Aisles of Sodas, then you will find the beers, some 350 of them. An incredible selection that demanded I burn another hole in my plastic. 22 fl.oz. beers from several Californian Breweries are all reasonably priced. Many other great American beers are available in 4 and 6 packs, or individually if needs be. As well as the domestic offerings, they also have other foreign beers from; Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Poland, British, Russian, Czech Republic, South Africa, France… you get the picture!
A good selection of Belgium beers are to be found here, they even had Cantillon Gueuze and Iris, as well as a couple of Fantome seasonals.
Near the Beer Aisles you will also find a small selection of Beer Glasses as well, including the one with the pink elephants from Delirium Tremens.

A really great place, excellent selection and all very reasonably priced.
But a word of warning. Set yourself a Budget before you enter, or leave the plastic at home though.
