Not a place to go if you want to browse beers. They have a good selection but the clerks tend to rush you if you spend more than 5 minutes in there. Last time I was there I picked up some Schlafly no. 20 and some Founders Breakfast stout but I wonít be going back to see what else they have. Small space + bad lighting + a**hole clerks = me taking my business elsewhere. Check out Pickís across the parking lot for better selection and clerks who can actually help you or Westroads across town for selection and old men who know a little something about beer.

The store is tiny. They have no little selection outside of major beer distributors. The few times I have been in there, the employees are always very rude. Maybe they have changed since I was in there last, but I wont be going back to find out.

Pinch Penny Liquor Store is a place that has definitely surprised me in the last year. This store went from having almost no craft beer to speak of to having 25% of itís floor space now DEVOTED to craft beer. Thereís plenty to choose from in the cooler as well as on the floor. Things there right now Iíve seen in the past week: Bellís (HopSlam, Expedition, Two-Hearted, etc, etc), Founders (pick an offering), Three Floyds (Alpha King and a few others), Ska Brewing (Modus Hoperandi, Blonde, Buster Nut Brown), Avery (tons of bombers and singles including Mephistopheles, the Reverend, Maharaja, etc,etc), all the Sammies, some Trappists, the list goes on and on and on... This is a liquor store that has turned itself around from being a college town spot for frat boys to get their Natty Light to a respectable joint for both the beer geek and the non beer geek alike.

The pub next door has better service than this hole in a wall store. I would rather go to Picks down the block. They occasionaly have some good brews there, and their beer fest every fall is cool, but ther selction and service is shit

Got a couple of good beers there once, but they seem to rely on AB distributed items like Red Hook and Widmer. not that those are bad, just no selection in this store

Tight little store. Selection varies greatly from week to week.

This merits entry only because its the best source of beer in the greater Carbondale/Murphysboro/Carterville/Marion area. Labeling this the "best source" isnít saying all that much given its competition. What youíll find here is plenty of beer that caters to the undergrad crowd (namely BMC products) and some micros. They are the only place that Iíve found that carries Bellís. Most of the standard Bellís 6-packs are in their fridge of beer (all beer is kept cold) as are the Schlafly 6ers. Thereís a few singles of things like Sammy Smith and a few Belgians, but thatís about it. In the beer wasteland that is southern Illinois, this is a mild oasis.
