The previous reviews pretty much nailed it. Nice service, but not super knowledgeable. The prices seemed a little high to me. Small but decent quality of selection. Their biggest draw is that they are right off of I-35, but their selection is blown away by Cyclone Liquors and the better places around Des Moines. Maybe itís better that they keep the selection smaller as I didnít see any dusty stuff on the shelf. Only worth a stop if you donít have time to go elsewhere in the area and want some Iowa beer.

This place serves itís pourpose, I suppose. Itís right off the Highway so if youíre just passing through this will be the easisest place to pick up a few Iowa/midwest micros. Generally speaking though the selection is lacking, it looks like they rotate new stuff in but with a full wall of the store serving as a beer cooler one would have to walk to the last five feet to find anything particularly good. Theyíve got a bunch of singles at pretty seriously inflated prices, for example I almost bought a Tank 7 12 oz till I saw it was almost five dollars, I almost bought a 330ml of Chouffe till I saw it was almost seven bucks. Six pack prices are on point with basically any liquor or grocery store in the area. One can find good beer here, but not a lot of it. If I lived in Ankney I might stop in from time to time to see what theyíve got in, but given the selection at other Des Moines locations I canít imagine going here again. Oh but they have a drive-thru!!!!

Nothing fancy about it but it did have a nice selection of local Iowa beers. Plus you can build your own 6-pack. Probably about 12-15 Iowa beers and then plenty of other Midwest beers too. Even have a drive through in the pack. I just wanted some Iowa brews and this place was perfect.
