UPDATE: This place keeps getting better and better, staff getting more knowledgeable, and the beer selections are getting better and better. Great local bottle shop.
UPDATE: This place now carries a wide and ever-changing selection of decent ales and beers from all over the states. Gets better each rating, plus they are pretty good at catering to the new neighborhood clientele (good or bad, take your pick).
UPDATE: They have removed the bulletproof glass, and have expanded their beer selection. Iíve been able to find some beer that I havebnít seent in the area before. Staff is much more pleasant, and it is a much better place to visit now. Now, Iím not one to complain about having to buy beer through a plastic, bullet-proof window, complete with a revolving door through which the beer goes to be handled by the cashier, so that absolutely no possibility of touching or robbery takes place, but it seems that the neighborhood may be slightly beyond that at this point. At any rate, you can always find at least one surprising/out of place selection here, that canít be found at the other liquor store across the street. Terrible ambience and clientele, but the staff are pleasant enough, and if you are in the market for some cheap knockoff sunglass or other goods, there is a guy who sits in the corner near the front door that you can buy things from. Odd.
