Good place with friendly staff and great beer. Not many true rarities during my visit - had been picked clean during the weekend - but still got my hands on a few odd ones. Overall a lot of stuff including lots of Danish and Belgian beer.

A great bottle shop right next door to the brewpub. Was able to find some RR amongst other great beers from Jester King, etc.

Tiny little bottle shop next to the restaurant/brewery. Lots of top-notch beers, 100% refrigerated. Saw a few gems and landed on one (not like me, I know!). Guy at checkout clearly knew his shit. Love the adjoining beer store/brewery concept...lets make this happen more often!

Been here plenty of times over the last 5 years.
Cool place with LOTS of beers to pick from. Up until recently you could open bottles there too. Never quite understood why people would want to do that but there were always at least a few people enjoying something in there.
Prices are pretty steep but where else can you get some of this stuff? Hopefully they get their liquor license issues sorted out and at least stay open, even if you cant drink in there anymore.

Nice little bottleshop located adjacent to the brewpub. They usually have some obscure stuff to try, they get all the limited releases, etc. Staff is usually quite nice. You can also drink beers you buy there in the store. Nice little outdoor area to hangout in as well.

Amazing selection of bottles--though no Alpine--from all over. Good prices. Very cool to drink them outside here. Wish they stayed open later. Forget next door--order a pizza and eat it here.

Good selection, good prices and nice staff. A bit too much European stuff for a european like me, but I guess that the locals like it.

This is a cool idea. The prices are a little higher than most bottle shops, but this place has an outside patio and a table inside for on-premise consumption. Factoring that in, the prices are way lower than any other bar in town for bottles. The selection is pretty damn good and the staff was very, very knowledgeable and quite helpful. There seems to be more emphasis on bombers than 12 oz. bottles. I seem to see that a lot around these parts though.

Great service, right next to the brewpub. I was a bit tipsy so I didn’t look around like I should have. Loads of bottles. Loads of Belgians and Cali stuff.
