Hole in the wall liquor store that again, looks like it could fall into the center of the earth at any minute. The desert must be hard on liquor stores, it seems to be a trend that they look this way! Massive selection with a lot of very old, dusty bottles. Didnít buy anything this trip, but Iíd imagine Iíll pop in here again and find something.

Unusual looking place from the outside. Long, convenient hours, which is appreciated, opening most days at 9am. Large bottle selection scattered all over, though some of the hoppy beers are old, so check the bottling dates. Some AZ stuff, including 6-packs that are available to bought in singles. Prices are reasonable; service is lazy and hands off, but friendly enough. Worth the visit if in town.

Huge selection, and they only place I saw with two shelves of Nevada beer. Some bottles are dusty, so you just have to be choosy. Front desk clerk was brand new and didnít know beers or what they had. Ample parking. Good prices. Enough for a visit. Or maybe two.

Le monstre de la region de Phoenix a quantitť et qualitť mais faut vouloir prendre son temps et nťgocier avec le bric ŗ brac. Un donjon de dťgustation síy trouve mais il níťtait pas ouvert ŗ mon passage....Áa me semblait assez intťressant.

This place looks like a dump and I was almost going to miss it. Walk in and you still get the feeling itís not quite a treasure people say. Walk around and you will get whiplash with all the great beers at all the decent prices. I am hooked. Help? Not really, they donít seem to know much about beer, but who cares. Beer there I saw was cheaper than the brewery, awesome. Pub isnít in yet, quaint and surrounded by bottles. Again awesome.

Stopped in here on the way home since it was on the way. Upon entering the sore it is striking just how much beer they have. Some people walking around browsing the aisles of beer and liquor. Service was solid. I was approached twice asking if I needed help finding anything but I was just browsing. Quality was ok. Nearly all of the bottles were covered in dust and some were out of date, while the rest were fine. Selection can best be described as immense and diverse. Beers of all different styles from all over the world. Nothing overly rare or anything but plenty of solid options. Prices were fairly similar to all of the other bottle shops I have visited in the area. Overall a huge selection is this places selling point, which is both a gift and a curse.

Doesnít look like much from the outside but it has way more beer than your typical liquor store. The place is dimly lit which is a plus since we all know the damage light can do to beer. They allow you to make sixers and grab singles from six packs without charging extra for the privilege which is a nice touch. True the Eastern European and the Belgian bottles could get dusty but they have really good selections of both as well as their local and regional stuff which sells so well age isnít remotely a problem. Unlike Tops the staff members were really friendly and accommodating. It was certainly worth the trip out to Mesa.

Visited Sun Devil Liquors a couple times while on a trip to the Mesa area last fall. Originally, I was recommended this place because they carried Odell and I was looking to get my Myrcenary fix. Great store. Doesnít look like much from the outside but huge craft beer selection. Tons of bombers. They had so much that it was kinda hard to walk the ailes because they had cases of stuff not on the shelves and extra stock all over the place. They have a ton of west coast, local stuff, and some nice midwest stuff. Luckily I was visiting during The Abyss release. They had a shelf full of The Abyss and no bottle limit from what I recall. I also noticed this place had a large selection Bellís. Anyways.. I ended up shipping home a pretty nice sized box of goodies. The staff was friendly. Prices were reasonable. I noticed they had a pub area to the place but didnít get a chance to check it out since I was spending so much time looking at selection. I would recommend this place to anyone who visits the Phoenix\Mesa area and is looking for some heady brews .

Pretty standard prices. Dusty, dim, and not kept well. Cellar bar was not open yet on my stop but Iíll give em credit for this great feature. Does not have the variety of other nearby stores but seems to make up for it with some harder to find beers. Overall a mix of good and bad but iíd come back.

If Iíve been to a bottle shop with a better selection I donít remember it. Quite frankly blows away Blue Max in Birnsville, MN. Iím sure some of my giddiness is because there are quite a few things here I canít get in my home market, but even for brewers that I can they have harder to find offerings. Not sure I agree with other reviewers on the "disorganized" and "dusty bottles" comments. Yes there was a section of Eastern European beers that had a number of dusty bottles. So what. As long as that doesnít mean old then itís not a big deal. Small bar downstairs is cool with several round tables and wine bottles (very organized) everywhere. Some cool on tap offerings although it was unclear whether you could order something as the bar wasnít specifically tended. Staff is very knowledgeable and helped me locate some of the more special stuff. Prices seemed very reasonable compared to in MN. Off the charts bombers were sometimes only in the $5-6 range. If youíre anywhere close to this place itís a must visit. Blows away Papago for beer selection; only thing Papago has over this place is that they brew their own beer.
