If I had a store like this close to me, i’d be pleased. A large store with lots of coolers containing singles, another couple of 15 or 16ft long shelves full of bombers and then another 2 or 3 coolers full of six packs.. nothing rare nothing superb, a couple of 9L St. Feullein magnums hanging around. Some cool stuff and well signed and ewll priced. Seems to be the only place in Wichita worth buying, staff was friendly and offered recommendations to places to eat, drink and other, they even had a 6’er of my hometown Great Lakes Christmas Ale hiding behind the bar.
Update: they’ve moved to their nice new location, I’ve upgraded the ambience score. Organization of singles is much better now. As henry3r puts it, its like a candy store!
This is my local, regular store, and by far the best in Wichita. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, the regulars are also as into beer as the rest of us. They do mixed sixpacks, plus lots of single bottles. They also have the single largest selection of Rogue Ales I’ve ever seen. If a beer is available in KS, Goebel will have it. Beer manager Rob really cares about beer, and while they sell other stuff, beer is the main theme here, dominating about 30% of their floor space and 99% of their cooler space.

A must stop for beer lovers in Wichita. The new location is great, and their selection is top-notch. Lot’s of hard-to-find items, reasonable prices, knowledgeable staff, and 15% off micros and imports on Wednesdays!
An even better selection than my last stop. The staff continues to be knowledgeable and attentive. Their sale items were really something too--not the lower tier stuff, but a lot of really excellent items at very good prices. Still the must stop in Wichita, or anywhere within a reasonable drive, as the region is pretty much a beer desert.
Always a fun destination when I’m travelling to Wichita. Excellent selection, there are even lots of obscure singles, 6-packs and 12-packs in fridges. Helpful and knowledgeable staff. Lots of stuff I can’t find back home.
A must if you’re anywhere in the general vicinity. Close to the airport -- very convenient when I was on a project a few towns away and could swing in for a mix-6 to add to my suitcase on the way home.
I was floored that a beer store in Wichita of all places would have this kind of selection- and the owners were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. A world class beer store no doubt- you MUST visit if you are in the area.
Goebel may just have the largest available selection of beer available in Kansas, and it rivals Lukas of Kansas City in terms of selection. Impressive mix 6 option, and they have - literally - everything from every brewer that they can get their hands on. If you’re a beer lover and find yourself in Wichita you owe it to yourself to stop.
