My experience did not match the norm I guess. This place is pretty damn small, with beer around the walls including some coolers and a tasting/checkout area to the right as you enter. The entire bottom half of the beer area is devoted to multi-packs, so there are not nearly as many unique beers in the store as the 550 that the site shows, but I didnt count, so I wont change it. Standard Belgians and Germans, quite a bit of SoCal stuff and some locals. They had Stickee Monkey, which was nice. No Sudwerk at all for sale, which I thought was odd. I was fairly annoyed that this is one of those places that does not use their cooler space optimally. I saw a lot of double IPA’s sitting in shelves while things that did not require immediate refrigeration were hanging out in the coolers. Tap list for the tasting room was relatively uninteresting. Now maybe they get some good shit in at times, but based on this trip, it was a pretty average bottle shop.

Best place in Davis for beer drinkers. The sitting area is pretty small because most of the shop is full of beer.

I've been here numerous times, and it's the best spot in Davis to drink beer. Rare bottles are really hit-or-miss, as you never know when cases will be saves for tastings or sold immediately. Missed lots of rarer beers due to this. They get some great offerings on tap, however, so come for the tastings (listed on Facebook, day-of) and the tap beers (and hope you can get lucky with rarer bottles).

So great to live so close to place like this. For those of us who love Craft brew, it doesn't get much better than this.

Drove 50 miles one way to check this place out and it was WELL worth it. One of the BEST bottle shops i have walked into by FAR. Great beer selection and prices are right on for the most part. I was a little put of at first by the locals keeping a draft beer on the down low but then figured out is was a joke about the younger. Very cool place and will be back.

Went here because I’ve pretty much dried up the selection at Nugget in West Sac. Staff was really friendly. great selection of bottle beers, and beer on tap. Would love to stop in sometime and enjoy a brew.

They have continually increased the selection of top quality beers that they carry (AleSmith being the most recent addition). There is almost always something great on tap! Not the largest tasting room, but the selection and OUTSTANDING service brings me back week after week.

This is a spacious beer store with a small bar and a few tables for enjoying bottled or draft beers on-site. There are eight taps dispensing some of the better craft and Belgian beers.The stock is mostly high quality beers from around the world. The owner is clearly trying to stock some hard to find beers, as I observed today’s incoming cases that included several semi-rare Mikkeller brews. A nice addition to the local scene.

This is the best beer store in the area. I am in Sac and have pretty much worn out the selections at BevMo, Nugget, Whole Foods, Corti Bros., et. al. Made it out here for the first time and found stuff I have never seen before or only sen at Ledger’s Liquor in Berkeley or Total Wine in Roseville, both of which are farther away from Sacramento, and even a few that I have never seen before. Taps rotate daily as do tasting flights. A lot of the single bottles are priced lower than I’ve seen elsewhere and the six pack prices are competitive. Tap prices are lower than average, too. Tasting area is cozy (holds 50 people) and set up to appeal to everyone. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. You can buy a bottle and they will pour it for you to drink there for a buck. They keep it simple and I think the result is perfect. Do one thing and do it well.
