The best beer selection I have seen in a long time. It is surprising in Concord to see a store of this caliber- on a street lined with establishments that serve the MD 20/20 and St. Ides crowd. Good variety of micros, imports, Belgians and other rare finds. In the last month I have seen beers like Westvleteren Extra 8 (but not always), FantŰme, and a weird variety of specialty micros too numerous to mention. New beers every time I patronize, excellent assortment of high end cigars, with specialty spirits and a decent wine selection for the Mrs. (sells singles)

This place has beers you canít get anywhere else. They let you buy singles of any thing. A real plus. Rare stuff. Beer heaven really! This is one of the best beer stores I have seen. You can tell the owner really loves good beer. Worth a drive from anywhere. I drove 60 miles.

If you think this place is a makr up or has less beers than ledgers or city beer you should open your eyes! close to if not over 600 beers with many being almost unable to find all together. They can special order things for you and can get tons of kegs. Sure not every beer is cheaper than every where else in the bay but come on now, they have better prices all around period! Full sail 6paks have been 5.99 for well over two years lagunitas is extemley cheap oh boy i could go on. Best in the bay and surrounding area dont full yourself. GO WEDNSDAY THURSDAY AND MONDAY FOR BEST BEER ADVICE!!!

Great selections and mostly helpful if they have enough people working and not too many people shopping.

Yet another huge selection at a store Iíve never been to before. Prices were great compared to another couple of stores that I frequent and since itís relatively close to where I work Iím sure Iíll be going there again. The only thing to bugs me is that they have the stock displayed only a couple of feet off the ground, which makes my 6í3" height have to bend over more than I care for. Friendly staff. Asked me if I need help. When I said No, they left me alone to peruse the isles, and then asked me again about 20 minutes later when I was still looking. Offered to try and get anything that I didnít see! Answered the questions I asked promptly.

I found this store thru this site or the other beer site, so I figure it is only fair that I write a review as well. First, off great bottle shop I counted over 400 different facings. Too, many choices of high end and hard to find ales. To name a few; 3 Port Brew., 3 Lost Abbey, 5 Hair of the Dog, 5 of the 7 Trappists (no Westvleteren unfortunately), 6 Russian River (3 liter of Damnation), 5 Ommegang, 8 Stone Brews, 4 Cantillon, Deus, and 3 Petrus all beers that CraftBC wrote about seem to still be available . Great prices on all of their beers, much lower than I have seen anywhere else. They also have 10 Sakes; they also sell beers by the single from 6 packs. The guy I talked to seemed to know his stuff, friendly, but sarcastic. A definite jewel, and yes there is porn.
