Walk past the Doritos and Ramen noodles, and head straight to the back for probably the best selection of singles Iíve ever seen. You could spend an hour browsing in here and the only problem is making up your mind how many beers to get. Large walk-in for a huge variety of cold six packs (not just cases of domestics). Iíve found and tried out many highly rated beers from this site at Johnís. Would love to live within walking distance of here!

Iíve been buying most of my Iowa City beer at Dirty Johnís since I was in college at the U of Iowa. Itís a family operation now in its third generation--at least that Iíve seen at the counter. Although the beer room can get a bit crowded on a busy afternoon or evening, itís the place to go for the best beer selection Iíve seen in Iowa. The service is tremendous, and the advice is pretty good, too. And, you can pick up steaks for the grill on your way out.

Dirty Johnís has by far the best selection of beer in the area and the college-town / mom-and-pop grocer feel only improves the ambiance. The staff is very helpful and includes not only a selection of beer experts, but also a few dedicated souls to helping customers in search of a good bottle of wine.

Stopped in on 4.19.2013. One of the very best beer stores Iíve been to. Crazy selection - tons of singles. Solid pricing and outstanding service. Not to mention a totally cool throw-back vibe. Iíll be back every time Iím in the area.

Let me say that I have never been to Johns, or Iowa, but have ordered online. Great service, quick shipping. I will be a repeat customer!

I donít know if this is the biggest selection of beer in the states but itís certainly one of the most thoughtful and carefully curated. This place has been open in their current location since the 1940ís. Thankfully thereís parking behind the store. I saw their video on YouTube and was expecting a bigger place although it looks just the same. Given the small size of the space and the amount of stuff crammed in there, johns has the feel of a market in Manhattan. 800ís probably a conservative estimate. Iíd guess closer to 1000. They have a fantastic selection of Belgian and Scandanavian craft and very solid English, German, and American craft sections. They also have a separate room that has a pretty massive wall of beer glasses. The service was friendly and very helpful and the prices were far less than Iím used to. I think youíll find few bottle shops more complete than this one.

Johnís is a great beer store, as well as being a great place to buy wine. They know their stuff, have a ridiculous selection and knowledge of Belgians and can match you to something youíll like. A must stop for any beer enthusiast coming through Iowa.

The best beer store I have ever been to, incredible selection. I came here on a Wednesday morning and probably spent half an hour looking around. A ton of singles and imports. Prices are fair. Sometimes I wish I still lived down the street. A must stop.

Unparalleled beer selection for Iowa. The beer section is in the back and includes hundreds of warm bottles in addition to a bunch in the walk in cooler. I found some real gems here including three different Cantillons.
