Holy cow! Iím able to get Pliney sent to me in Georgia. Great service...these folks called me several times to update me on whether or not the Pliney arrived and had some other great suggestions for west coast IPAs. I did some damage but am thrilled with my order!

The place to go when youíre looking for something you canít find at your local liquor store, or even BevMo. Great selection of top-end beers, wines and spirits, as well as cigars. One of only 3 places in North County SD(that I know of) that carries Pliny the Elder regularly. But get there quick because its gone almost immediately.

Every year Iíve visited the West Coast Iíve visited this place. Iíve met the owner and the beer manager. Thought they were professional and very helpful. While I do shop at other stores, I go here to get some of the regionís hard to find beers. I will make a note to myself to call before visiting so that they are there (see other comments).

Iíve been here many times. Classy feel to it, especially if you go downstairs to check out the wine. The beer selection is top notch. The last time I was there they put almost all the beer in the walk-in cooler. They did keep some cases of recently released beers outside of the cooler, and it seemed like they were still moving things around so next time I stop by I will update. Plenty of glasses too. Service is great. Just a great place to get awesome beer, and if you visit, do go downstairs and check out their setup.

I visited here when they opened this past Sunday. WORST BEER STORE IN THE ENTIRE AREA.

Where do I begin? The majority of the beer is located in a walk in cooler in the back. I donít like freezing my ass off to shop for beer. I had to go in and out of the cooler at least half a dozen times to thaw out. Service sucked ass. When I got there there was a sign just inside the door. It listed beers that were tasted there the night before. I asked if I could buy some of the beers on the sign. I was told no. Those were in the basement and only the owner could sell those. And the owner wasnít in.

So they have a great selection. Only problem is you wonít be able to buy the good stuff. Unless the owner is there. I found no value visiting here and overall it pissed me off more than anything else. Iíll never go back here.
