Decent place if you are in the area. Some seasonal micros, not many imports. Staff is not that knowledgeable.

Looks like a seedy liquor store from the outside. Looks like a seedy liquor store on the inside but they have an amazing beer selection. Donít let the name fool you the store is about 70% beer. They have a fantastic Belgian selection including a nice lambic selection. They also have a nice Italian craft selection as well as really supporting their local breweries. They literally have everything great spirits have plus 300% more. They also have 40 taps of local and other crafts. I wish they had glass growlers instead of plastic jugs for it. We bought about 3 six packs of Belgians and locals and they threw in free glasses. Fantastic! I canít imagine a better beer store in the state. Of course after revisiting after five months I noticed they had much of the same kinds of stuff as before so the seasonals are lacking. I think I was overenthusiastic in my earlier review so Iíve taken it down a few notches. Update 12/27/12 I knew these guys would take advantage of the bomber law. Theyíve opened a walkin fridge for bombers and more shelf space as well. They donít quite have the same selection as Hop City but theyíre not far from it.

Very good selection of pick-a-six beers (you can pick almost anything...). Nice selection of taps too. Affordable prices and nice service. I canít say anything bad.

Well, I did not see 800 craft bottles, but they do have a pretty good selection here, plus a whole wall of taps. I wish California allowed this type of setup. Overall I was impressed with the selection, particularly when state liquor laws were taken into account They had the full set of 2013 Eclipse beers for $29! That is impressive by itself. Ambiance is shit, organization is shit, but the selection makes this a place to visit if you find yourself in northern Alabama.

It looks a little seedy, but looks are deceiving. I was right impressed by their selection of beer, especially in Alabama with its tight liquor laws. I found quite a few beers that I have not seen in Georgia, and took home a couple mix-and-match six packs. The employees were a big help in guiding me towards the kind of beers I like, as well as towards local brews - and I enjoy supporting the locals! Some of the prices were a wee bit high, but none were outrageous. If ever you visit Huntsville, this place is worth finding.

So this place is a dive that is working to improve itself by bring in craft beer and 40 taps for plastic milk jug growlers. The beer is typical Belgian plus some new surprises. They have a nice selection of lambics and some harder to find local and regional brews. I got a great deal on some glassware to go with my newly purchased beer. Definitely improved from itís old days, but still a bit of a dive.

What they said below. It ainít pretty but itís the best thing going in Huntsville. The best selection of beer in town, with all the locals and a good selection of Belgians. Limited to 12oz bottles because of state laws. Best thing about this place is the ghetto growlers-superb selection of about 30 drafts on the wall-including most/all beers produced in Alabama. Available in 1/2 and 1 gallon plastic containers!!

Unassuming liquor store facade. The interior is well laid out and well lit. There isnít a lot of space, but it is efficiently filled. The employees are very helpful, although I didnít ask any difficult questions. The selection is large, especially for Huntsville. They have a great Belgian section and lots of local and regional brewers. Most of the beers are arranged by brewer, and they have a large spread from most. The donít have a very large selection of one-off beers or special releases. The prices are standard. Not the best place, but the best in the area.

Small place that covers the bases at a bare minimum.
Selection is decent for the area I suppose. Singles and sixes, warm and cold.
I found about half of what I was looking for, but they were nice enough to go in the back to look for what I wanted. They were surprised that they were out of so many; I guess they didnít know there was a beer festival bringing in all of us out-of-towners
