Now this is an interesting spot. They have a flashy Russian-made growler filling system that ensures that no air gets into the jugs. Unlike every other growler store I have been to, they sell freshly poured pints to go, in plastic bottles no less. The guys who work there are friendly and likeable. So it is worth a visit for sure - but there are a couple of drawbacks. The atmosphere is nothing special, even for a bottle shop. Compared to other places, the selection is not first-rate, either the drafts or the bottles, although there is always something good available. I will continue to drop by from time to time.

Stopped by to pick up some brew for Game of Thrones premier party. They were closing but stayed open for 5 minutes so I could grab some bottles the draft lines were turned off. Selection was ok but prices were quite high. They had some programs on schedule though that seem fun

A very clean, nicely laid out shop with a great range of tap beers (24) and many bottles (c. 150). Theyíve got a big plasma TV that lists all the available draft options. The variety is great and the staff are friendly. Prices are a little higher than some of the other bottle shops around, though certainly not the highest. This would never be my go-to beer store, though I would visit here occasionally.

Went here after hearing about their opening. Real snazzy place, full of singles and have 24 growler taps available for 32 or 64 oz fills. Plus "the Beast," which looked like a 2L plastic bottle. Donít fret, they counter-pressure fill everything, which I have to say is this placeís best feature. Theyíre certainly trying very hard; they even have a station where you can search for beer styles youíre interested in and it shows you whatís available in the store. You can even tweak settings like IBUs and alcohol content if you have preferences for those sorts of things. However (you knew this was coming if youíve been reading), the value just isnít there. Bottles are relatively expensive, likely due to the location of this place. Additionally, growler fills are similarly expensive. 32 oz fills range from $5.99 to $23.99 (Evil Twin Christmas Eve...). Glass costs $3.99 for either growler type. Owner (I think his name was Bill) is an incredibly nice guy, willing to show me around and show me all of this stuff. Unfortunately, Iím not sure the convenience of this place and counter-pressure fills are enough to get me to come back very regularly, at least for special stuff, like some of the 12% line. For local stuff, maybe depending on price and desire to have growlers.
