Hands down the best beer store I’ve been to. So many beer its overwhelming on your fist visit. The space is super small, service/recommendations is none, and the outside looks like it only has 40. Regardless, the selection is amazing with rare locals and even harder to get rare nationals. This is a must stop if you are within an hour.
Its beergeeks heaven. Best store ever visited. Visited yeasterday and had good talk with owner about beers. Bought some stones, bells, prairie, mikkeller.

A nice bottle shop with an impressive selection of beers. A lot of quality beers crammed into a small site managed to find quite many bottles here that were already sold out elsewhere. I spent way too much here and they even shipped my purchase back home for me, ask for Jazz when you stop by. but definitely worth a stop.
Stopped by today. Don’t judge a book by the cover. Although the store is small and cramped, there is a decent selection of microbrews. Lots of beers not available on the east coast. Not too many different beers, and prices a bit high, but worth a stop if you’re in the area. A bit overhyped in my opinion.
The selection was huge, the service friendly and prices affordable. What I was expecting to find was single 12 oz bottles. Unfortunately no American singles, only 6-packs. Well I bought some nice 22 oz bottles. Not necessarily as good as I expected but definitely worth stopping.
31 Jan 2015. looks like a hole in the wall kind of place. i didn’t look at their wine and spirits selection. Beer selection is not very big but almost all of it is beer that is to some degree rare. prices might be a tad high but given this is all hard to find it is likely worth it.
Where to start with this place. Does it appear sketchy from the outside, yes. Does there appear to be too much going on around this place for the time of day and week, yes. Will you find plenty of new brews to buy, YES. Inside it has these cherry wood colored shelves that remind me of Texas Liquor in Carlsbad and some of the new shelves put it at Bine & Vine down in Normal Heights. I see lots and lots of fairly organized international offerings including a pleasing array from Mikkeller and To OL where there are easily a dozen I would be happy to buy if I had the money and an easy way to get them home as I’m getting on a plane after this. Ended up grabbing two To OL’s and some cool looking local offerings. Big selection that will have me coming back whenever I’m within 30 miles of this place.
