An absolutely AMAZING selection. The staff is incredibly knowledgable and helped me figure out what other beers I might like just by giving them a couple of basic beers to start with. A few beers did look a bit out of date, but with that big of selection, you try to keep up as well as they do. I went up to U of Iowa for a saxophone lesson and ended up stopping here for two "Build Your Own 6-packs". Great place. Period.

WOW, let me say that again, WOW!!! Huge selection, Belgians, english, Germans, other Europeans. Huge cooler of micros (local and beyond). New huge wall of glassware and breweriana. Only drawback was the small selection of mix and match sixerís. I was hoping it would be like the Boise Co-Op and have everything available for mix and match. Picked up 6 years of J.W. Lees, 2001 A Le Coq Imperial Extra Double Stout, 3 Cantillonís and a bunch of others. Made 2 trips from Davenport while on a 2 week business trip. Well worth the trip. This is a beer loverís dream store.

Charming little family owned corner store in downtown Iowa City. The place is very small and is packed to the rafters with almost everything you would ever need....including an exceptional beer selection. You can find all of the local small brewery offerings in addition to a large selection of imports including many Belgians. The staff have always been helpful. They also have a pretty good wine selection and lots of beer glassware from different brewers.

It is a staple. Other than one cashier who I have on several occasions wanted leap the counter and beat the @#$$% out of, it is a great store. The new beer cooler is awesome and the selection is the BEST IN IOWA.

This store has a large selection of beers. However, the turn off was that I found this store to be dirty with many of their beers out of date. The stafff seemed knowledgeable, however they seemed to talk down to me as if I did not know anything about beer. I

Great selection. Visiting my girlfriendís family this is a great reward for driving 6 hours to Iowa. Superb selection of midwestern beers and great imports, especially Belgian and German. So much beer packed into such a small space, and the addition of a huge selection of proper glassware tops off the selection. If only more stores like this could be found where you donít expect to find a good beer store. They have food, since they are a grocery, but thatís not what Iím here for, so I marked it as n/a.

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.

unique little gem for beer in Iowa City. service was outstanding and what wasnít on the shelf, a clerk would go look in the storeroom. Also, they broke up 6 packs to accomadate me. if you are looking for Belgian a dnd German beers in east central Iowa, this is THE place.
