Stopped in with the cousins on year while in Mesa for Thanksgiving. Not an amazing selection but I did see some breweries we dont get in CA as well as the current release of the Odell’s Woodcut series. No service to speak of but it was a decently nice store. Would return on the way into town if there was something I was looking for that I knew they had.
First time ever in a BevMo. If Target ran a liquor store it would look like this. It was very clean and well organized. Things like soda and food which tend to be afterthoughts in Liquors store were given lots of space and ample selection. The beer was located in the back right side. Most of their selection was focused on local and regional craft organized by location. Their Belgian selection was disappointing. Also disappointing was the size of their pick 6 section.(only two 4-sided displays.) they don’t have much that is rare either. If I was planning a party I would come here. If I was looking for beer I would head to total wine.
Very typical BevMo for the Phoenix area where are too much beer is left to languish at desert area room temperatures. To be fair I haven’t had a temperature influenced beer to date, but I’ve been pretty careful. This one can have a bit of a difficult access as it seems you’re funneled through a busy area to reach this spot within a busy shopping area. Once in parking is a breeze though. Friendly and helpful staff.
Nice large store with outstanding service. They did not have the FW 14 I was looking for but were able to find some for me at another store. Can tell they move quite a bit of beer. Nice selection of regional and seasonal brews.

Not the preferable bottle shop even in the area. Its within five miles of both Tops and Papago. Looks a lot like the BevMo options in LA and Burbank but with fewer AleSmith and maybe a bit more Colorado here. Not even in the dignified part of this college town so I doubt the employees are Beer Gods.
Have to ask for help if you want it, but much easier to get help than at total wine, along with friendlier and more knowledgable. Cleaner and better organized than the other BevMos I’ve been to. Even on a ’special’, the prices always seem to be a few ticks higher than a total wine just moments away.
