So I was exstatic when this place opened. I walked in, and was even happier when I saw it’s selection. There are three walls of beer. And the prices are pretty reasonable, especially compared to what I pay in Philly. Really a nice place with great selection that was much needed in the area.

When I first rated Wine Works, the store had just opened and the craft beer selection was relatively limited. However, as I have accrued much experience over many trips and beers from Wine Works over the summer, I have grown to greatly appreciate it. While the interior is relatively industrial and straightforward, it is brightly lit and the beers are well arranged by size, country, and brewer. After living in Philly, and subsequently being subjected to the outrageous cost of good beer, the values here are unreal. Seriously, this store has some amazing beers for mind-blowingly reasonable prices. Allagash, Dogfish Head, Flying Dog, Jolly Pumpkin, Green Flash, Stone, Southern Tier, Unibroue, and a solid stock of trappiste ales, Belgians--Cantillons!--fill the shelves, as well as some Nordic treats from Nøgne Ø, Haand, and the great Mikkeller. Brian, the beer manager, recently asked me why I had reviewed Wine Works negatively; I could not think of a single answer that still held true. Wine works has vastly improved, and Brian has done a fantastic job with the store. The girls at the counter are always sweet, friendly, and cute, which is a refreshing change of pace from the traditional old curmudgeon grumpily accepting your payment. Anyway, I highly recommend a stop here for newcomers and craft aficionados alike. Cheers!
