Unexpectedly impressive beer store in the middle of downtown South Bend. Pretty big inside and a wide selection. Came here with shawnm213, and Iíll take his word for it that itís the best in the area.

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 Floydís bottles. Other local breweries include Evil Czech, Burn íEm, 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 donít 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).

This is a clean, well-organized, and well-stocked liquor store that you should hit if youíre in the area. The service was excellent every time I stopped by (one time I asked if they sell snifters.. and they donít.. but the employee gave me a couple that came with a booze order). They have the best beer selection in the area, and this is where I found Stone 03, 04, and 05 just sitting in the cooler.. among other gems. Great stuff!
