A warehouse thatís pretending to be a store. There is beer, wine, and liquor everywhere. Literally, with the exception of some narrow walking areas, if there is space to put alcohol, they do. It can make browsing bottom shelves pretty difficult due to the fact you canít bend over for fear of knocking over the stuff behind you. Other than that annoyance this is the best selection Iíve seen in North Dakota. Several Sours, Imperial IPAs, several ND beers and some other interesting brews available. Some of the beers (cases) are extremely well priced. I got a 12pk of Alaskan Pumpkin Porter (92 overall rating) for $13. Canít beat that. They have a pick 6 section that is extremely underwhelming, you can make probably one combination of 6 that would be worth it.

I love a good liquor warehouse and thatís exactly what you find at Captain Jacks. Looks like they have a ton of liquors and cigars, as well as beers. The beer is spread all over the place, just like previous ratings note. From the back wall coolers all the way to the other end of the store where the bombers and specialty brews lie. Make you own sixer for $10 with limited options. Not a lot of bombers, but some surprises and a few solid rotators. Saw 3F, Mikkeller, Panil, Struise Pannepot, plus some random eastern European imports. Prices were fair on most, but there were a few things that seemed oddly overpriced. Overall this is the place to go in Bismarck without question. **Iíve realized this is basically the best option for the west half of the state and thus rated it higher... maybe higher than I should, but it should stand out from itís company.

Jeez Iíve never seen a more cluttered liquor store in my life. The place is allege and mazelike. The beer is located mostly in the coolers kn the right side of the store. Thereís also a small shelf of craft beer with a really tiny pick six section. My recommendation If you want something beyond a basic Deschutes or Alaskan this drive to Jamestown and visit the cork and barrel.

The south location is certainly better than the north. It has everything the north location has and then some. Lots of Bells and Boulevard including their seasonals. A few Rogue, Southern Tier, Sierra Nevada, sSummit, New Belgi, Boulder, etc. Quite a few beer from Montana as well. Itís a nice big store, but the beer is kind of spread out all over. Found some great beer sharing a cooler with four loko and others mixed in all over.

Not a bad beer store for Bismarck - not many better in the area, and this one has better atmosphere than Captain Jackís North. Selection isnít huge, but they do have a few things - mostly the more common micros available in the area.
