Visited January 14, 2014.

I managed to drive right by this place since itís in the middle of a residential neighborhood and the sign isnít easily visible from 3rd St. Luckily there was some parking just north of the intersection so I was able to walk the 100 feet across the street and back to the store. Outside on the north wall of the store is a vinyl banner that boasts that they have tonís of ďcraftĒ beer. Inside is your usual crowded liquor store with a set of fridges on the back wall. Make your way through the aisles (some of them are blocked off on the one end so you have to go right past the register on your way out) and youíll find five doors with decent beer in them. There were a couple of good ones in there. Much of the Lagunitas, Firestone, Moylans, and Speakeasy lineups were present. One fridge is dedicated (mostly) to Belgian beers. I spotted some Orval from January 2013 (good in my opinion), some St Bernardus 12, the new Gregorius trappist beer, and a number of others. Prices werenít too bad but there was nothing that I really wanted to buy at that moment in time. Canít say much about the service. The two guys working were talking to each other the whole time but I never approached either of them to ask any questions. Parking isnít too bad. Next time Iím in the neighborhood I might have to try the new trappist beer here.

Stopped in on a recommendation. Not a bad place. Typical liquor store feel. All of their beer is in coolers, and at least four of them are devoted to craft beer. Three coolers of mostly west coast locals, and a cooler of mostly Belgian internationals. Nothing particularly rare here, but at least they sell a lot of singles, and everything is kept cool. A place to stop if you are in the vicinity. Donít go looking for it unless you need 12-oz singles from some crazy trade you are working or something like that. Follow up - some of the singles I bought here were pretty old. Check the labels.
