    Hey everyone I just wanted to let you guys know that I am no longer involved in Corks and Tops. My business partner sold the store out from under me. I tried everything I could to stay in and keep everything the same. I have enjoyed the memories and the beer talk. I am sure the store will change up and not sure if it will remain craft beer oriented. I will say this spirit's in northport would be a good choice if it can't be found at Corks and Tops. I appreciate everything and I hope everyone continues to drink good beer. I enjoyed meeting everyone.

    I hate to hear this too, Michael. You really made Corks and Tops a great beer store. Keep us posted if you open another place. Good luck to you.

    I appreciate the kind words. I wanted to create a friendly atmosphere. onyte that was inviting and didn't seem like it was only business. Like I said before I am unaware of the direction they are going to take. From what I have gathered a little more on the line of a conveinent store not a craft beer store. I would recommended spirits over in northport for you craft beer needs. They are and I believe will remain on top of things. I will open another store one day but it won't be soon.I appreciate everything.

    I enjoyed my visits to Corks and Tops in the past, gonna miss that little store. I hope you at least got to keep some of the beer in stock to take home. Keep us updated with any future endeavors.

    I went to Corks and Tops for the first time last week and didn't buy anything. Pretty good selection but the small beer section of the store was kind of a mess with boxes everywhere and in the way. The prices kept me from buying anything and everything I was interested in could also be found at Spirits off Rice Mine for about 15-20% less.

    Michael is a great guy and Tuscaloosa hated to see him go, but Corks and Tops is now under new management and is continuing with the craft beer and fine wines. We now have one of the largest selections of craft beer in Tuscaloosa and are willing to special order any beer you would like that is sold in Alabama. Our inventory is always growing and changing so please feel free to stop by and say hello or check out some good brew!
