i think having a BIG retailer like them has helped get brewers in the region that were not here before. That said, I donít trust the date on anything hoppy that ainít bottle dated. stuff collects dust. they never know when or usually IF they are getting a specific product. So the selection can be good, but is better for wine and spirits than beer. Beware if you know something ainít fresh.

Iím not from the area so I canít compare it to any other local places. Its beer selection has a varied domestic and international selection; not as much as itís sister store in Roseville, CA (my local). What it does have over that store is ten beers on tap. Bring your own growlers (original label doesnít matter) or buy them there. They have the growler fillers that purge the O2 with CO2 prior to the beer going in. Meaning the beer keeps longer in an unopened growler. Plus they have great service.
