L’instant que vous aller trouver le cellier derrière l’arche façonné de croustilles, vous aller avoir de la difficulté à perdre votre sourire. Chris a eu la gentillesse de brandir ses meilleures bouteilles après une bonne discussion avec lui. N’importe où tu peux acheter du TG est un must.

Grocery/Convenience store near the U Iowa campus. Beer is in the back. Huge selection of locals and random things I had never seen, or would be sold out in minutes back in Denver. Friendly staff and prices. I have heard they do get TG, but it sells out quickly. Alas, no TG when we stopped in.

Dirty John’s was our go-to spot for a wide variety of interesting beers long before every grocery store and liquor store caught on. Staff is very knowledgeable, which sets this spot apart from most local options. We stocked up on a wide variety of beers for our wedding reception beer tasting. Dirty John’s introduced me to the concept of a mix ’n match six pack of really good beers.

It looks bad till you find the weird back room full of heavenly delights. A delight of strange and great beers from all over the world. I spent a ton and was only limited by space. Prices were great and service was friendly but not helpful. I could go there everyday for a month and be surprised. Also great vintages which I have never seen before.

dingy and moldy interior. service itself ranges from excellent (the beer manager, a son or grandson of the founder of the place, is outstanding and will talk to customers for hours about craft beer, and even is willing to crack open bottles for sampling) to terrible. they employ this curmudgeon who will harass you.

Exceptiomal beer place. Doug and everyone went out of their way to see that I was happy. Definitely a lot of selections, many of which aren’t available in NKy. All were purchased as singles. What a place. Worth searching out.

The best beer store I have ever been to, incredible selection. I came here on a Wednesday morning and probably spent half an hour looking around. A ton of singles and imports. Prices are fair. Sometimes I wish I still lived down the street. A must stop.

1848 dry goods store is appropriate location for international & micro-brewed beer selection fueled by Big 10 university town prices. Just learned they treat special batch beers as if supplying heroin addicts. Total turn off. Haven’t stocked Okocim in eons.

Never been to the physical location but I’ve had some great online orders. The promptness, selection and packaging are grate.
