Been to this place once in the whole time I lived in Lawrence. It was too far to get to b/c they did not have anything that the other good places in KC carried. The only difference is it may show up a bit faster or stick around a but longer. Worthwhile if you are near but just stick to the better KC places.

I met foppa78 here a couple of years back to conduct an IP trade and instantly became a fan. Great selection with a lot of cool imports. Pretty good prices and the beer selection hasn’t been picked over too strongly.
(Update 3-6-13 the selection and service has really gone downhill here for a couple of years. Still have some rare bottles, but not even close to what it once was.)
The selection of beers here has greatly improved over the last year. Many hard to find bottles and great service to go along with it. If its available in the area and you don’t see it just ask. Best selection in the area of beers available in the state. Their beer guy is awesome will tell you what is new and fresh. Just tell him what you’re looking for.
Interesting store with an out of the way location. Visited because of the great reviews. Found a nice selection of Mikkeller and some different Belgian selections. Did find a bottle of Stille Nacht! Otherwise the selection was limited. Staff was friendly. Singles were very limited. If you are driving by stop in.
Visited for the first time last night, I don’t get over to this part of town at all, really. I have to admit, for a place that is currently the most highly place in the entire state of MO, I was a little disappointed. Selection is certainly not bad, but pales in comparison to Lukas MO, or (maybe unfairly) the combination of Royal and Gomer’s South (those are the places I typically hit on the MO side when I want to make a beer run.) Service was kind of non-existent, although they did help me out to the car with my purchase, which was nice. If you’re in the area, definitely worth a stop. The make your own sixer selection was the smallest I’ve seen anywhere, ever. Some of the single bottles were extremely old, as one might expect. Prices were a bit on the high side, which is another turn-off for me. All in all, if you are just visiting KC, odds are you’re not staying anywhere near this part of town, and I don’t think it’s worth a huge trip out of your way. As this is a good 30 mins from my house, one way, I probably won’t be visiting again.
On RateBeer, this is the top-rated beer store in the state of Missouri - and upon visiting it during an epic road trip (Atlanta, GA to Reno, NV for a national convention) I now understand how it got such a high rating. The man I spoke with about finding Missouri beers was very friendly and helpful. Their selection may not be the best in the country, but I saw lots of beers that I didn’t even know existed. I could have stayed their all day, but I made myself grab just a dozen good ones - only so much room in my Ford Focus. If you are ever in the vicinity of Kansas City, this is a must!
Standard atmosphere for a liquor store, but a very nice selection of beers and much closer to home for me. The build your own 6 pack is pathetic, but that’s not what I come here for, it’s the great selection, even if it is a little pricey. They do, however, have decent sales of select breweries, so you can always find something affordable as well.
While Gomer’s Lee’s Summit doesn’t carry a lot of the "bigger" names that you can find in other stores, they do a fine job keeping their small(er) store in stock with all kinds of unique beers that you just can’t find anywhere else. They have a decent selection of 6 packs, but it’s their 3 coolers of bombers where they really shine. The only drawback is that there isn’t really a mix six option, but overall it’s a solid store, albeit a bit out of the way.
First trip to Gomer’s, was impressed with their selection. Some of their items were a little higher in price than other stores, but overall it was great to see some hard to find brews. Will visit again when in town, nice job.
