Wow. What a disorganized dumpy place- but in a good way. They definitely get some excellent beers, but you really have to look over two and three times because there is not much organization. HOWEVER, I was really interested in buying a few IPAs, but the clerk had no clue how old they were. I had to deduct some points for that, because I really wanted to take some west coast IPAs back to the hotel and did not want to buy old stuff ( and I bet some of it was old). I still walked out of there with some nice stuff. Expect to find west coat stuff like Alesmith, Firestone Walker, Lost Abbey, Marin. Some nice Belgians in there as well, in addition to the regional stuff from CO and AZ.

Cool placed. The fist thing I noticed walking in was all the Russian / Romanian beer in a small alcove to the right. I was able to scare up a new Baltic Porter rating (Amber Grand Imperial Porter frikin ROCKED!). Overall a dusty mostly organized selection. There are a load of dusty delicate German beers in here to stay for away from unless it is a huge Eisbock or the like. Nice selection of local and Western US offerings where it appears you can make singles from pretty much any 6 or 4 pack. I love seeing Speedway. I’ll be back for sure.

Best beer selection in AZ ...even better than Papago. Every now & then, they sneak in some really hard-to-find items. I think it was about 5 years ago, I actually found Westy 12, 8, & 6 there. Oddly enough, the AJ’s on Central had some too at the same time. But once it was gone, I never saw it again. Of course, the fact that they had it at all tells you something about how serious they are there about beer. The place looks like six pounds of sh!t in a five pound bag. But it is friggin awesome!

Best selection I have seen in my short visit to Phoenix. Went there for FW 14 which I was informed someone came in 2 days earlier and bought the last 9 bottles, but that was ok as this beer is in high demand. They had plenty of other beers that I did not see any of the 3 Bevmo’s I went to. Was able to pick up some Rock Art Vermonster and Squatters Outer Darkness. Not the most visual pleasing place I ahve been to, but they made up it with selection and service.

Great selection of beers-wish that the store was kept cooler however. Decent prices and helpful staff. The bar area is cozy and service is good. There is a louge area in the back though and a couple of bar tables. They can also cellar beers for you if you’d like. Tap selection is inconsistent. Sometimes they’ll have a couple of pretty rare beers, but other time they’ll have somewhat pedestrian beers. Good place to hang out though and I’ve made the 20-30 minute drive many times because of the selection and staff.

Just had the most incredible time, great help from someone who really knew their beer, but it was more than help, like meeting new friends.

Great selection of some hard to find beers and some aged ones too(not on purpose!)...from the outside it looks like a dive that only a bum would buy stuff from but from the inside its cool as hell.

They have the best beer selection in the valley. The beer and wine lounge in the basement is great as well now that they have everything set up and looking good. I am always well taken care of. Another plus is that they offer a storage cooler in the basement as well. I rent a locker where I age both wines and beers (truly a necessity in the ridiculous heat of the Phoenix area).

Sun Devil is the best beer store in Mesa bar none. I’ve been shopping there for years and their selection is on par with their sister store Tops in Tempe, but since they are in Mesa some of the more sought after brews spend a little more time on their shelves, which means more time to buy. The owner Laurie is very personable, and the rest of the employees Chris, AJ, etc treat their locals well. They have a basement with a small tasting room with a couple of taps and a cooler full of various beers, wines, etc if you feel like hanging out that they recently expanded to include 200% more room, couches, swank furniture, flat panel TV’s and occasional live entertainment. I hope that this catches on because they’ve been putting a lot into it lately and it’s really a nice quiet contemplative place to have a beer or 2. If I had 1 complaint about anything here it would be the organization of their beers, and the temperature at which the non cold storage beers are stored. In past years in summer months the store has been quite warm; however this past summer I didn’t notice any excessive temps. Another nice thing about sun devils basement is that they have a temperature and humidity controlled cellar where you can store your beer and wine. In Arizona you can’t exactly cellar stuff in most houses like they do there, and the rates seem reasonable.

Love the place! Aesthetically a bit worn but hey, went for the unusual offerings. While not promoted as well as it should, they do have a small wine/beer bar in the basement. Limited hours but worth the journey.
