I couldn’t believe that this place wasn’t listed yet! They may not have the largest or most impressive selection, but they did have one of the rarest beers I’ve ever seen for retail (BA Gonzo w/ artist signature). They also have several single batch and limited released like the gamma ray and terraryzed. I’ve since been told that the brinkman family was pretty well-connected in the distribution industry. The store has an open floor plan and was very clean. They also have a good number of coolers, though many are filled with wines instead of beers. One of the brinkmans was working when I stopped in, and he was more than happy to take the time to talk me and even place a few special orders. The prices are certainly reflective of their yuppie location, so make sure to bring a few extra bills.
