Large liquor store in a gas station, 2 4 1. This is a very good selection b/c you get some StL beers that dont make it to KC but they dont sell out as fast as they do in StL. Prices are also very good. They also had good prices on cognac. Would definitely pull in my way though town, you know... to fill up.
This is a liquor store that has a craft beer section. It takes up maybe 15% of the store space. Variety is just ok and a mix a six area had a few new ones for me. I didnít see anything great but lots of steady quality selections. It is also just a bit pricey.
A very good selection of brews. Happened to meet the distributor on this trip, and he was very helpful and knowledgeable. Carried some brews I have not been able to find locally. Prices tend to be a little higher, but the selection is well worth the extra price.
As stated before, the selection is better than youíd expect from a gas station. That said, itís the best selection in town, especially of imports. After moving some shelves around for additional space, the selection of American craft beers has expanded quite significantly.
Stopped in after a night out drinking in downtown Columbia and a late night meal at the Waffle House about 300 yards away. Looks like any other liquor store, but has a nice bottle selection for what youíd expect next to a gas station in Columbia. Large amounts of Schlafly, Rogue, Unibroue, and a few others. A few each from Southern Tier, Bear Republic, and a lot of good brewers. Beers from all over the world, albeit not the highest quality stuff from each country. Nothing super rare here, but a nice selection and good prices.
Got some good stuff again, I still thought prices were high, but a good selection. Stopped in on my way through town. I thought they had a good selection, and they were good at getting the new local micros. The prices were a little high, but hey, who are they competing against? Overall, I might stop in again, but I wouldnít expect to see anything I hadnít already seen in KC.
