Came to this place sort of by accident. Had to go to the Friar Tux shop down the street to get my fitting done for a friendís wedding and then on my way back home I came across this place (and a pretty good barber shop on the other side of Warner).
This store is pretty cramped and small, but they make it work. The beer of interest is almost all in the first handful or so of cooler doors near the entrance. Lots of local stuff and a few interesting ones I hadnít seen around before from some less popular breweries like Mammoth. Selection is pretty good for what theyíre working with, bottle-wise anyway. They have a ton of kegs for sale here, which is kind of cool I guess. Prices are hard to judge since I donít usually buy kegs.
There was a small little section of home brew gear in the back. Mostly small stuff like bottle caps (and cappers), corks, some small bagged dry ingredients, etc. Neat. A handful of sake bottles as well.
Alright little store, I might have to pop in every so often after a hair cut, since I think I found my new barber shop.
