A very nice beer and wine store near Post Falls. Lots of selection, and well organized by style. Thumbs way up! I will be back.
I’ve returned several times since m first review. I still love this place. I like their organizational shelves, ie ’Wood aged beer’, etc. I walk out with a case of assorted beer every time I stop in. Keep up the great work.

Pretty easy to find off the highway between Couer d’Alene and Spokane. Small shop that makes the most of their square footage. Nice selection with a focus on both quality and regional representation. Very well organized. Decent pricing with a generous discount for larger purchases. If we are passing through again, I will make a point of returning.
I stop in here on occasion when visiting family in the area. Split between bar and bottle shop, this place has a nice selection of beers with some unexpectedly cool draft and bottle offerings, considering the area. Prices can be a bit high, and the prices on the "Crazy Awesome Bottled Beer List" are absurd (I pity the person who someday throws down $79 on a 2009 Abyss). Still, it’s hard to beat stopping in to a small beer shop in a northern Idaho strip mall and ordering a Firestone Walker anniversary beer on draft.
For the area, it’s great.
The problem with reviewing this place is that there are two nearly separate sides to it - the bar side, and the store side. The bar is really nice - cool upscale classy vibe, something like 12 different draughts, and some high quality stuff. But I came for the store, and I was a little disappointed in it. They don’t break six packs, save for a few 12oz singles they’ve chosen. The local selection is a little lacking, as it’s mostly Laughing Dog and little else. There are some really cool bottles in there - don’t get me wrong. Just not a huge number of them. A few hundred, but not the selection I’ve seen elsewhere. All that said, I’d happily stop in again, and likely will.
