I couldnít believe that my local craft beer shop wasnít on here! This is an awesome store with the best selection of craft beer in the area. Shelves and shelves of single pint bottles of hard to find brews. Also an incredible variety of six packs with a great selection of IPAs and Belgian styles. The service is great too, itís locally owned by a couple and the husband knows his stuff. I told him I was looking for IPAs with strong pine notes, rather than citrus, and he immediately knew where to direct me. Of course, great selection and good service comes at a price, and I would not recommend this place for your more macro craft brews (Sierra nevada, flying dog, dogfish head) as you can find them for at least a dollar cheaper in area stores with a smaller selection. But if youíre looking for an ale that you havenít seen anywhere else, give this place some time. As for other details, there is no refrigeration, so you donít have to be overly paranoid about your ale turning to cardboard on the way home. Also, there are beer tastings every Friday or Saturday, with the other day being a wine tasting. Both 4 to 7.
