Very good, capable service. Choices are numerous and high in quality. Several good local beers that are more rare in other areas are available here. Not a whole lot of highly sought after, world class brews though. The space is a little tight in there, but when youíre store is busting at the seams with beer and wine, Iíd be willing to sacrifice a bit of aisle space.

I used to visit this place after every trip to Stone. Pretty good selection over all and they occasionally get some brewery only release type stuff though often times you have to know someone there to get access to it. They also have some vintage stuff hidden, but again you have to know someone. Check the website and youíll see a fairly complete listing of what they have.

Service is pretty hands off but if you ask a question they are happy to answer. The walk in beer fridge is the best part of the store but they also have a downstairs section for the wine. Prices are high but thatís to be expected. Probably past due for another visit.

I wish there were two listings for this store, one for their online presence and one for the actual store. The actual store is a pretty fine beer store, but itís not a 98 overall store. Selling Pliny online makes it a 98? Staff was friendly and helpful, lots of beers in the walkin cooler, pretty nice store.

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.
