Pretty solid liquor store with a good slection of craft beers. Nothing too crazy, but at least it is well maintained!

Un endroit moins spectaculaire que le Sun Devils mais plus agréable à côtoyer. La sélection est différente mais presqu’aussi massive. Le Taste of Tops est derrière la porte d’â côté. Pas déplaisant.

Really nice bottle shop. Shelves are super narrow, so don’t be fat while walking through there. You can break sixers of most of their stuff, but there are a few things you can’t. Really wide selection, but I didn’t stumble across any super rare or interesting gems while taking a couple of passes through there. Did locate the polatmavy, which is shockingly hard to find. Good place to stop for locals.

Stopped in here after four peaks since it was so close by. Upon entering I was a bit overwhelmed as there is a TON of beer, liquor and wine in that medium sized store. Beer is located on the right, the middle and the middle left as well as the right and back walls. Atmosphere was pretty laid back. People coming and going buying their wares for the weekend ahead. Service was ok. My interaction with them were fine but one of them tried to run me over from behind with a hand cart without even asking me to move. Selection was insane. 4-5 isles packed to the gills with beers from all over the country as well as the world. I was able to find two bottles I was looking for the last few days as well as a few others that I hadn’t seen in years. Prices were more than reasonable and on par with the other shops I visited in town. Overall one of the better bottle shops I have stopped at on the trip, glad I made the side trek to check it out.

Locate in strip shopping center near Arizona State. Typical college town liquor store in that was dingy and looked liked it it was in need of a good scrubbing. They had several aisle of craft beer but as others have pointed out most of it was not refridgerated and they weren’t exactly generous wih the air conditioning. They do seem to,allow you to make your own six and they have. A solid selection of regional and imported craft with an especially strong Eastern European section. I was certainly prepared to buy a few bottles but the clerk at the counter was the rudest man with the nastiest disposition that I have encounterd so far in my craft beer adventures. He told me my card was invalid and said it in such a cruel and dismissive way that I wondered, despite all the good product, how they could stay in business treating people in this manner. They map be the self-appointed tops for liquor, but they’re definitely bottom for service.

The probably most unorganized store I’ve ever been into But the guy in the store knew his beers and helped me to pick a couple of Eclipse, Black Butte, Expedition Stout and Ten Fidy. Tons of beers and very nice selection. What else could I say :).

Huge selection. So much stuff that its all crammed together. Cramped and disorganized. All this really brings down my total socre. Too bad because its loaded with great beers. Adjoining bar where you can enjoy any beer there..assuming you can find it.

Great selection, but pricey and very much all over the place. Odds are you will find the beer you are looking for, but it will be priced at the high end. It is a good place with a bar attached.

This place is insanely packed with beers and just about every other variety of alcoholic indulgence known to man. Loosely organized into three sections (craft, Belgians, other imports), it is otherwise a beer free for all. It is listed here that there are 400+ different beers, but I’m willing to bet there are over 1000. My biggest beef is that space is so cramped, they had piled a palette of wine boxes in one of the beer aisles, making most of the selection in that aisle inaccessible. I’m sur it was a temporary thing, but seeing as I won’t be making it back there soon, I was disappointed. Cool storeif you don’t mind bit of chaos.
