Visited on a Monday morning. Large, clean upscale store. Huge selection of quality wine, liquor and beer. There is an entire wall of beer, a few racks around that wall, and a large walk in cooler of craft beer. The mix a six was solid, wide variety of local beers that also were marked as $1.99 singles. I was impressed with the import selection, in particular the Belgian. I liked the layout of the walk in cooler, arranged A-Z by brewery. Really nice store, I could have spent a lot of time (and money) here. Almost in the same league as Zipps and Blue Max, though the single selection is more vast at Zipps and the import selection is better at Blue Max.
88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Great beer store - some of the reviews on here are several years old, and I can tell you that the beer selection these days is pretty darn good. I’ve attended beer events here that were a great time as well.
Tyranena, surly and more shipped to AZ? You betcha. Awesome! Great packing and no issues with breakage.

They claim to have 650 beers but I don’t think they are even close. But still a good selection. Service is difficult to find but they have a very knowledgeable lady on staff to help with beer. The deli is clean, large with lots of food. Wine is their primary focus, but lots of beer, liquor, and sake too. most beer in coolers.
Ordered some 4 packs online to be shipped to NYC. Very smooth transaction - confirmation and shipping were done efficiently. Great packaging. I would definitely order again. An ideal service fir anyone within their shipping range that cannot purchase any surly brews otherwise.
December 19, 2011 - met here for a trade and stopped in the store to check it out. Seemed like a decent joint. There was a nice wall of singles, though seemed a little pricey at $2.25 a pop for all, including stuff like Leinie’s. Very large beer cave that was stocked with craft brews.
