Located just down the street from South Bend Brew Werks in downton, this City-Wide Liquors location has a similar selection to the other one. Beers take up several shelves as well as coolers along the back row. Additional offerings fill a walk in cooler.
Besides the usual suspects City-Wide provides a nice array of Three Floyd’s bottles. Other local breweries include Evil Czech, Burn ’Em, and others from the southern end of the state such as Sun King and New Albanian. On the whole prices are pretty fair. Some singles might be a little more expensive than a four or six pack but not completely unreasonable.
Service was excellent with a very knowledgeable person to walk me through the local offerings as well as what was new. If you have any questions about something being in stock don’t be afraid to ask - you will not get a typical "I dunno" blank state that you might at a store which only sells 24 packs for tailgating.
It remains a tossup if this location is any better than the other. The options at both seem pretty similar. Hit up whichever is closest to the places you plan to stop (either Evil Czech or South Bend Brew Werks).

Came here because I read they still had Hopslam and I never got around to getting this year’s batch. What a pleasant surprise is this place! There are some glass coolers that show about 1/4 of the beer they have. Walk into the cooler and the cellar for the rest of it. The cellar has the special releases and vintage bottles. Everything can be sold as a single as well. Staff was helpful and prices pretty reasonable. I’ll be back.

Friendly helpful staff, and a decent selection. I was able to pick up a couple of things from my want list. Worth the stop if you’re in the area.

Always visit this place when in town on business and never leave disappointed. Great selection of the most recent releases and aged bottles in a temperature controlled room in the back. Service is top notch, and I can’t recommend this place enough.

This place was great. I did a little reseach on this site and this sounded like a decent place. I was blown away with the service and selection. Upon looking around for about 3 minutes Dave came out to ask me if I needed any help. I told him I was from MI and looking for stuff I can’t get there or stuff that is rare. He quickly pointed some out, then took me into the cooler to show me where the good stuff was. They also had a very large "cellar", unfortunately wine took up 80% of the room. Some great finds there and I will be going back whenever I am in town (unfortunately not very often). I wish I could find a place like this by me, mainly because of the service, Dave was so helpful.
