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 Iíve 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 todayís 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 Ledgerís 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 Iíve 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.

2nd Revision: They are getting really good and hard to find beers. Getting better all the time. Revision: They are getting some good and hard to find beers. Worth a trip evry week or so. This is getting to be a great place. Prior: Ok. Damning with faint praise. It has good beers, but few that are 95 or better. It has many beers, but for the area they are not rare. The really good point is that the taps have pretty good beers. However, you could go to the Co-Op for package brew, you could go to the Graduate for lots of good taps. The unique thing about this place is itís right down town. To stand out it needs to get in some rarer beers. Agree with the first 2 sentences of DYCSoccer17ís review.
