Rating would be higher, but Iím looking at it for its beer selection. Got a major renovation last year and is a really great organic/health food grocery store now. New beer section is expansive, and has a lot of interesting styles and somewhat rare regional beers. Unfortunately, some of the selection is based on having beers from the previous season or even year around. Depending on the style, thatís not necessarily a bad thing, but before you buy, check for a date and decide whether youíd drink an at least six-month old bottle of whatever it is youíre looking at.

I was pleased with the selection- they had a lot of stuff, but that also worrieed me- they had beers that must be from last season. I donít expect freshness with what they had. But they did have a good array of big Bruery bottles and Cigar City bottles. save 5% if you get a mix a 12, but who wants to do that? Itís a good little store, I can pick up some beer while my girlfriend gets some groceries.

I live not to far from this place so I stop in once or twice a week. The selection is gradually expanding since I moved here about four months ago. I still see selections that places with more bottles donít have. For the size of the cooler iíd give the selection an A+, but itís too bad they donít have more space. Prices are lower than Shepís. Ian usually asks if I need any help, and I decline so I canít comment on the technical knowledge of the staff. Overall I think itís a better offering than Shepís. They carry singles, 6 pks, and a good selection of bombers. They also have 6pks on the top of the cooler which can easily be missed.

Visited here on the way to a Rays baseball game in august í10. Small little health food store with that patented "fresh" incense-like odor permeating throughout. Beer cooler is tucked away in the back and has about 100 or so singles to choose from. Not an earth-shattering selection, but easily found about a dozen or so I had not rated yet. Found a few old regionals such as Little Kings and Nargansett. Had a few west coast bombers, some Belgians, Brits and Germans and some Eastern Euro lagers. Prices were reasonable. Not a destination by any means - but if on your way to a game - worth a stop.

Ok. So I went here for beer and food. The beer selection was par for Tampa, nothing exquisite, but it is under-utilized so there were a fair number of beers that have come and gone from other places. Maybe because of the prices, that were fair to high. Then there was the service: very incompetent, when available. The guy walked by me looking at the cooler and actually bumped into me before asking for anything. Then I went to eat. The girl actually stopped in the middle of my order to ring someone up that walked in after me. Teenagers behind the deli counter. Like a dummy I stayed. The food was good vegetarian fare, but even the cook did not know what the dishes were served with (I asked, they answered and it came with fries anyway). I will not be back.

Considering the size, the beer selection is top notch. Price-wise they are somewhere in the middle... lower than Shepís, higher than Total Wine. But it is walking distance form my house... so that give it extra points!

Nice little organic boutique type grocery store. Back in the beer corner they use every inch of space to bring us a very nice assortment to choose from. They have a few bottles Iíve not seen elsewhere. I picked up Terrapin Side Project Monkís Revenge and Flying Dog Kibeloís Tiple that I havenít seen anywhere else. Lots of singles to choose from. This isnítí too far from Shepís Deli making it easy to hit both and likely find what youíre looking for. I did.

The ambiance is a small health food store. It has a nice deli and impressive beer selection. The service is good but not as beer savvy as some. The selection rival Whole Foods and surpasses The Fresh Market. The food is quite good but everything is expensive except the beers which seem to be pretty close to average.

hippie dippy natural foods store with decent beer options and the oblibatory maker-your-own six packs. prices are a little steep, but that is typical for upscale granola-head stores like this. eh, there are better options in the area with better prices.
