Wonderful store. I was introduced to dozens of Belgians here. The staff is more knowledgeable than any other Iíve ever dealt with (these are highly sought after positions in the young beer and wine community in the area, everyone wants to be a "Johnís Guy"). I have seen some complaints on here about them being rude or snobbish, but this couldnít be further from the truth. They are just like us, beer guys, and with that comes strong opinions. If they didnít have opinions I would have shopped elsewhere! Also, their wine guy is brilliant. Glassware is impressive, and I still buy it there and have it shipped. Beer selection is huge, weíre talking well over a thousand to choose from over the three years I was in the area.

Feels like a neighborhood grocery. Big wine room to the right as you walk in. Beer room to the back. Staff was friendly. No DietPepsi here today, so I had to go full calorie. A crap ton of beers. The walk-in cooler that looks small from the beer room is actually massive and wraps around. Even more impressive was I got excellent cell phone reception inside the walk-in! Tons of beers from all corners of the world. Solid prices, decent deals. Still didnít stop me from racking up 80 bucks pretty quickly. Some Prairie Bomb variants, but Iím not paying $14 for a 12 ounce bottle of anything unless its Jean Van Royís tears. Lots of rarities. Not too far off the interstate. Worth going out of your way for.

Cool little grocery store with focus on wines and beers. From the pure beer perspective itís worth a visit. Wide selection of international but also US and IA beers. Singles are kept in walk-in-cooler which is cool indeed. Donít wanna spend there too much time. Good selection of Toppling Goliath and other IA craft ones.

Very cool country market ambiance. Very impressive beer selection. Many are kept in a walk in cooler, which makes liesurely sampling a bit uncomfortable. Still the selection makes it all worthwhile - Topling Goliath and numerous other Iowa breweries along side extensive Belgian and English beer selections. We chatted with the Grandson of the Dave that started the grocery many years ago and that now runs the store. Enjoyed very minute.

Stopped by on way out to Colorado. First time through Iowa CIty, and it seems to be a college town first - with that said, I did find parking difficult, even during the summer. They do have their own lot, but lots of trucks surrounding this destination. No biggie, parked a block away. Not at all what I expected from this legend. I thought a more open market place, but no, this is an old building/maybe former house...when I walked in I was not sure which direction to go to, to find beer. However, the ambiance of an older building, negates the lack of navigation, in my opinion. I stopped by on a busy Thurs. afternoon. Selection was outstanding, lots of hard to get, locals. regionals, and one-offs. I do know one of the workers, but taking him out of the equation, service was outstanding. I wandering around by myself, and was helped when I needed it, and left alone, when I needed it. Very friendly staff! Food, I did not try, but options were available. Value seemed to be fair. Overall - if 8 mins. from my house I would definitely be a weekly visitor, however I live 8 hrs away. If in the area - you must stop by! Highly recommend to other!

phaleslu  (557) Cincinnati, Ohio | July 8, 2015
Stopped here just before midnight on the Friday night we rolled into town. Itís in downtown Iowa City by some other cool restaurants and shops and stuff. Itís a nice little market with tight aisles and goofball employees, and it has rooms off to the back for wine and then for beer. Such cool rooms. I snagged some goodies from Toppling Goliath, Exile, Central Waters, Crooked Stave (a 375 I hadnít seen before), and Lagunitas ($2.99 bombers of Equinox). I couldíve spent a lot more time and money here but Ms. phaleslu was almost passed out in the car and we had 12 hours of driving to do the next day, with limited trunk space. Good layout, given limited space. Good prices, too. The service here is A+ top-notch number one, with Andy (pepsican) leading the team of misfits who were around that night. I also grabbed some groceries while in there, and damn if they donít have an outstanding house-made wheat bread. It lasted our whole trip and gave us some high-quality peanut butter sandwiches, staying fresh and hearty for a week-plus. If I lived in Iowa City (sigh), Iíd be here every week. I loved everything about this place. Iíll be back whenever possible.

We stopped in here on our cross country adventure and Iím real glad we did. You walk in to what looks like a cramped corner market. As you make your way to the back you enter the beer room, which is truly impressive. Loads of import bottles and some USA crafts kept warm along with some sixes. The cold storage room is where most of the craft six-packs and singles are held. Loads of local and those pesky, hard to get Iowa ticks available here. I snagged a couple Toppling Goliath brews and a bunch of other Iowa stuff. They have loads and loads of top notch stuff all at very reasonable prices, IMO. If you are anywhere near Iowa City this place is worth a detour.

Grocery/Convenience store near the U Iowa campus. Beer is in the back. Huge selection of locals and random things I had never seen, or would be sold out in minutes back in Denver. Friendly staff and prices. I have heard they do get TG, but it sells out quickly. Alas, no TG when we stopped in.

Dirty Johnís was our go-to spot for a wide variety of interesting beers long before every grocery store and liquor store caught on. Staff is very knowledgeable, which sets this spot apart from most local options. We stocked up on a wide variety of beers for our wedding reception beer tasting. Dirty Johnís introduced me to the concept of a mix ín match six pack of really good beers.
