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.

Nice selection but definitely over-priced. Lsrge amount of cold craft beers and some stuff that isn’t easily found elsewhere

Been stopping here off and on for years now and finally getting around to rating it. Selection has gotten increasingly better over the last 2 years. Craft beer selection is definitely above average and hangs around for awhile, mostly because some(but not all) of the really rare one-offs are grossly over priced to comparable stores. Worth stopping in to? Yes. But only if you can’t find what you’re looking for at Zipps, The Four Firkins or Liquor Barrel.

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.

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.

Maybe not the best beer store locally judging by some of the reviews, but they ship out of state – all the way to Arizona. I just opened a box with a 4 pack of Surly Furious, a 6 pack a Tyranena Scurvy, a 4 pack of Tyranena Doubly Down ‘ n Even Dirtier and a 4 pack of Founders Double Trouble. Shipped out the next day and friendly emails from the staff. Not cheap, but I love having access to the beers above. If you can’t get them locally, give this place a try.

I like this store. Yes, it is more expensive than other places but they get all the limited releases that sell out fast at other stores. The staff is friendly and will hold bottles for you if you ask nicely. Nice walk in cooler of beer along with a many cooler doors of beer. They also do singles and BYO 6 packs. The only really knock on this is the overall value.

Been a while since I’ve been here. Poor service and small selection. One bottle of wine I looked at was $20 more than Surdyks for the same vintage.

Great place for wine. Very unspectacular beer selection. Plus the prices are high. Very unimpressed with the service. Asked for Geuze and the staff had no idea. Very hit or miss.

They have alot of regular brews but have really gone away from having a good beer selection.Nothing you can’t find anywhere else. Updated: Things have changed dramatically here as they have almost everywhere. Large walk-in cooler and a shitload of cooler space with tons of bombers and six packs.
