Exceptiomal beer place. Doug and everyone went out of their way to see that I was happy. Definitely a lot of selections, many of which arenít available in NKy. All were purchased as singles. What a place. Worth searching out.

The best beer store I have ever been to, incredible selection. I came here on a Wednesday morning and probably spent half an hour looking around. A ton of singles and imports. Prices are fair. Sometimes I wish I still lived down the street. A must stop.

1848 dry goods store is appropriate location for best international & micro-brewed beer selection in the State. Fueled by international clientele at University of Iowa hospitals & clinics + research fellows in various departments. Big 10 university town prices though.

Ordered beer from them once through some bro named Andy. He hooked me up with a nice discount too. Very easy to work with, very prompt, and the pricing was pretty good (even if the beers I was ordering were really expensive beers). I got a mixed case of 3 Fonteinen (Doesjel and Scharbeekse Kriek). The selection at Johnís is really quite good and everyone should check them out. If I ever make it Iowa City Iíll have to stop in.

I donít know if this is the biggest selection of beer in the states but itís certainly one of the most thoughtful and carefully curated. This place has been open in their current location since the 1940ís. Thankfully thereís parking behind the store. I saw their video on YouTube and was expecting a bigger place although it looks just the same. Given the small size of the space and the amount of stuff crammed in there, johns has the feel of a market in Manhattan. 800ís probably a conservative estimate. Iíd guess closer to 1000. They have a fantastic selection of Belgian and Scandanavian craft and very solid English, German, and American craft sections. They also have a separate room that has a pretty massive wall of beer glasses. The service was friendly and very helpful and the prices were far less than Iím used to. I think youíll find few bottle shops more complete than this one.

Stopped in on 4.19.2013. One of the very best beer stores Iíve been to. Crazy selection - tons of singles. Solid pricing and outstanding service. Not to mention a totally cool throw-back vibe. Iíll be back every time Iím in the area.

Among the best places for hard to find beer in eastern Iowa. It seems a little ancient in there, the old school corner grocery store is hard to find in the area. After the remodel they did, it seems like thereís more space to get around and not as much needing someone to get beer down off the very top shelf. Among the best places out there.
