Le monstre de la region de Phoenix a quantité et qualité mais faut vouloir prendre son temps et négocier avec le bric à brac. Un donjon de dégustation s’y trouve mais il n’était pas ouvert à mon passage....ça me semblait assez intéressant.

This place looks like a dump and I was almost going to miss it. Walk in and you still get the feeling it’s not quite a treasure people say. Walk around and you will get whiplash with all the great beers at all the decent prices. I am hooked. Help? Not really, they don’t seem to know much about beer, but who cares. Beer there I saw was cheaper than the brewery, awesome. Pub isn’t in yet, quaint and surrounded by bottles. Again awesome.

Stopped in here on the way home since it was on the way. Upon entering the sore it is striking just how much beer they have. Some people walking around browsing the aisles of beer and liquor. Service was solid. I was approached twice asking if I needed help finding anything but I was just browsing. Quality was ok. Nearly all of the bottles were covered in dust and some were out of date, while the rest were fine. Selection can best be described as immense and diverse. Beers of all different styles from all over the world. Nothing overly rare or anything but plenty of solid options. Prices were fairly similar to all of the other bottle shops I have visited in the area. Overall a huge selection is this places selling point, which is both a gift and a curse.

Doesn’t look like much from the outside but it has way more beer than your typical liquor store. The place is dimly lit which is a plus since we all know the damage light can do to beer. They allow you to make sixers and grab singles from six packs without charging extra for the privilege which is a nice touch. True the Eastern European and the Belgian bottles could get dusty but they have really good selections of both as well as their local and regional stuff which sells so well age isn’t remotely a problem. Unlike Tops the staff members were really friendly and accommodating. It was certainly worth the trip out to Mesa.

Visited Sun Devil Liquors a couple times while on a trip to the Mesa area last fall. Originally, I was recommended this place because they carried Odell and I was looking to get my Myrcenary fix. Great store. Doesn’t look like much from the outside but huge craft beer selection. Tons of bombers. They had so much that it was kinda hard to walk the ailes because they had cases of stuff not on the shelves and extra stock all over the place. They have a ton of west coast, local stuff, and some nice midwest stuff. Luckily I was visiting during The Abyss release. They had a shelf full of The Abyss and no bottle limit from what I recall. I also noticed this place had a large selection Bell’s. Anyways.. I ended up shipping home a pretty nice sized box of goodies. The staff was friendly. Prices were reasonable. I noticed they had a pub area to the place but didn’t get a chance to check it out since I was spending so much time looking at selection. I would recommend this place to anyone who visits the Phoenix\Mesa area and is looking for some heady brews .

Pretty standard prices. Dusty, dim, and not kept well. Cellar bar was not open yet on my stop but I’ll give em credit for this great feature. Does not have the variety of other nearby stores but seems to make up for it with some harder to find beers. Overall a mix of good and bad but i’d come back.

If I’ve been to a bottle shop with a better selection I don’t remember it. Quite frankly blows away Blue Max in Birnsville, MN. I’m sure some of my giddiness is because there are quite a few things here I can’t get in my home market, but even for brewers that I can they have harder to find offerings. Not sure I agree with other reviewers on the "disorganized" and "dusty bottles" comments. Yes there was a section of Eastern European beers that had a number of dusty bottles. So what. As long as that doesn’t mean old then it’s not a big deal. Small bar downstairs is cool with several round tables and wine bottles (very organized) everywhere. Some cool on tap offerings although it was unclear whether you could order something as the bar wasn’t specifically tended. Staff is very knowledgeable and helped me locate some of the more special stuff. Prices seemed very reasonable compared to in MN. Off the charts bombers were sometimes only in the $5-6 range. If you’re anywhere close to this place it’s a must visit. Blows away Papago for beer selection; only thing Papago has over this place is that they brew their own beer.

This. Place. Rocks! I found this place by accident, and fell in love the moment I walked in. There is a small section called the Iron Curtain and they have beers from all over the world in there. Beers that I never knew were shipped to Arizona. Oh, and the bar downstairs. That place is incredible, too. Just a really cool "hole in the wall" liquor store with a great selection of beers.

I don’t believe I’ve ever had a bad memory from this place. Their selection is massive and their staff are knowledgeable and help in any way that they can. I especially like their cellar-bar located downstairs. My only complaint, if one could call it that, would be the location: but their gigantic orange-and-yellow-striped sign seated by the street makes up for the awkward positioning of the building.

Great selection of beer, both imported and domestic, but not all beer kept in the same place. They have a bar and wine cellar downstairs. Place is really dingy and many items were warm from the 80 some degrees they keep inside. Prices are average to good. Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Found what I wanted and I’ll be back to this place again. Just wish they’d cool it down some to prevent early spoilage.
