Great store with a very large amount of beer. The help is extremely friendly and know their stuff. They do order everything available from distributors and also special order a very large amount of high proof beers from the state. The store is clean and a great place to shop if you are in Iowa.

I always enjoy shopping at Cyclone. As a former college student at ISU and now family man living in Ames, I always knew where to find good beer. They have a huge selection for an Iowa store, great service and staff. The place is always clean and organized also.

I love traveling to Ames to drool over the beer selection at Cyclone Liquors. It is a great store with a huge variety of different beer. Great imports and singles. A good selection of micros as well.

Cyclone Liquors has the largest selection I have found in Central Iowa. The store is very clean and organized. The staff was not only friendly, but very knowledgeable as well. I have met the managers through my frequent visits and found them very friendly and they could answer any questions I had. The store had an enourmous selection of microbreweries and many belgiums. They had a large selection of hard to find single beers and the staff could help me find beer that I would enjoy. Cyclone liquors also had many 6 pack imports as well. I would recommend this store to any one in the area.

I am from Ankeny Iowa and travel to this store to purchase beer as there are no quality stores in Ankeny. Cyclone is a very clean and organized store. They have a massive selection of beers domestic micros, imports and singles. The staff is always friendly and helpful as well.

I am so in love with this store. I often travel East from Nebraska and made a stop in Ames last week. The selection is absolutely amazing. I also got to know one of the managers, I believe his name was Cliff, very well. He was extremely friendly and helpful. The store is extremely well stocked, the shelves and bottles are clean, and the store is an overall great place. I also loved the Scotch selection; probably the best I have seen in the MIdwest. I will definately be stopping back in the next time I am driving through Ames, Iowa.

I really enjoy this store. The selection is great and the store is extremely well organized and clean. Very different from that other store in eastern iowa. The managers know a lot and are very helpful. One of my favorite stores in the midwest.

The selection is pretty good, but the English beers are rampant and I’m guessing they’re very good because of their super-low alcohol content. They do have higher end beers that are nice and full of alcohol content. I spoke to the owner and he is a nice guy that just likes better beers and doesn’t have any competition around. I have to try something else at that place before I say that they keep it great...’cause they have a big window out front that let’s the nice sun shine through. They have some competition these days as a HyVee Wine and Spirits has opened up 50 feet away. They seem to not care about their selection as they have old stuff that doesn’t sell and new stuff that’s not so great, I’ve had complaints about the Westmalle and I have complaints about the Delerium product I had.
