This is, in fact, the place to buy good beer. Often (not always) there is someone available to discuss and advise. Always courteous though and friendly. Easy in and out. Great music. I have been everywhere, all over town, and this is by far the best place. They are also quite focused on continuous improvement.

Best selection in Tulsa, run by beer lovers...for the most part. Carter is the man to ask for help.
I heard this was the place to buy beer in Tulsa, and it turns out this is THE place to buy beer in an otherwise unfriendly town for beer drinkers. The store is pretty typical looking outside and in, but the back half is completely beer. All the BMC, German, Belgian, and other big time American and Euro brews are here. Oklahoma is well represented with Choc, Marshall, Mustang, Huebert, and a couple others. Other craft brewers include Santa Fe, Great Divide, Boulevard, Full Sail, Big Sky, Avery, Bear Republic, Southampton, Left Hand, and more. Basically, if itís available in Tulsa, you can get it here.
Considering the limitations of what can and canít be brought into the state of Oklahoma, this store was a nice surprise. I went for most of the Oklahoma brewery stuff (Choc, Marshall, Mustang, etc.). Very nice mix six option and probably the best selection Iíve seen. If Iím ever back in Tulsa Iíll probably check it out again.

Visited this place while in the Tulsa area on business. Itís nothing special but was the best of the three stores I checked out and they probably get a huge chunk of whatís available in Oklahoma. Beer selection is spread out with a lot of the single bottles around the perimeter of the store. Full line of Boulevard, all the locals, a lot of Rogue, some Bear Republic and really a good selection considering what I think gets (or doesnt get) distributed into the state. If youíre in the area I think this is your best option. Update -- Just recently visited this place for the second time and feel I need to bump the ratings up slightly. Really a nice store for the area. The staff was friendly and even offered me some good suggestions when I asked about local stuff. The prices seemed very good and selection about as good, if not a little better, than I recalled. Remember, this is Oklahoma, but this place does a good job with what they have.
Coming from a Texas boy, I was pleasantly surprised by this store. Had some Aventinus Eisbock (not available in Texas), as well as some Great Divide and St Peters offerings not available in Texas. Pretty good selection, in both sixers and singles. Pretty good selection overall
I am not sure what store bryandhargave visited but it definitely wasnt this one. This store has one of the, if not the largest beer seleciton in Oklahoma. The manager said that they carry all but 3 beers available to OK retailers. While they do offer the Coors/miller/bud products, they are entirely in a different store because law prevents those from being sold in a liquor store. Anyway, back to the store theyíve made a really great effort to offer a fantastic variety and organize it by country of origin. Also offer a strong pick 6 selection and beer gift packs that i havent seen at other stores. Given current laws and limitations set on retailers, I think this store has made the best of what is offered to this twisted state.
so im obviously going to compare this store to what i am used to.....
slim pickins. oklahoma sucks for beer. the guy at the counter had never even heard of Stone, Bells, Dogfish Head, or Stoudts. Prices were cheaper than I had found elsewhere in tulsa. but only by about a buck a 6er. i dont want to go into a beer store and see miller and coors ya know.
This is a store that has been around for a very long time but has recently revitalized to appeal to the beer consumers. Offering both a strong beer side and a 3.2 side, itís a great stop for any beer lover. Featuring Macros, Micros, Seasonal favorites, Hard-to-find Belgians and Glass-packs that are far and few between.
The building and structure is pretty old, but you can tell the staff has really started to classy up the place. They recently remodeled the beer section, that now takes up nearly half the store. It sports shelving that is seperated by country and a pick 6 selection with well over 150+ offerings.
Not to mention, you can order any keg available in Oklahoma and pick it up COLD. A lot of stores can sell you kegs, but itís maintained at room temperature. What they fail to tell you is the fact that almost all wholesalers ship the kegs chilled/cold, so allowing it to warm up to room temperature can drastically effect the quality of the beer.
Overall. If youíve not checked out this location and youíre in the area, I think you will be shocked at the organization and detail that has gone into making this the premiere beer locale in Tulsa.
