Placed an order before Christmas for some Cigar City brews. 10$ off plus free shipping made it a great deal. Website was pretty good, but the 15 minute cart timeout was annoying. Communication was fine, they packed and shipped promptly, and used a nice bottle shipper that I will certainly re-use myself. All in all a pretty good experience.

Have been receiving the daily deal email for awhile, finally decided to pull the trigger with a 10% discount code. Ordered 7 beers, free shipping, same day order confirmation, shipping tracking provided the next morning. Bomb proof packaging. I’ll order from these folks again, and recommend to others.
82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Bought some bottles because of the $10 intro discount. The website is annoying in several ways. Once you add a beer from a brewery, it goes back to the main page, causing extra steps when you want more than one beer per brewery. The 15 minute time limit on your shopping cart is very aggravating. Nice selection, especially with PNW beers. If you want beers from multiple regions, you are probably going to be paying a bunch extra as they ship from different regions. Shipped promptly and packed well in a shipper. My order was fulfilled accurately. Free shipping is nice, but it’s only free because shipping is built into the bottle prices. Overall not a bad experience, but also a reminder of why I prefer trading.
Got my first shipment from this place. Not their fault, but the Big Al Fresh Hop Harvest bottle leaked half its volume during shipment. Not the best start in a relationship. Other than that, the experience was good.
a six bottle order netted me some deshutes and bruery bois. easy to navigate and three location that they ship from to put together a free shipping box. I am sure its made up in the price of the beers, but what evs. i will use again.
It’s nice to be able to get stuff from the west coast with free shipping. The website is easy to navigate, and checking out is easy. The prices are a little high, but that is to be expected, I guess. I have no complaints about the experience.
I signed up for the "free beer for a year contest" and started receiving their email, I finally gave in to temptation and ordered something (Odell Sampler pack). I was very easy (one might say dangerously easy), everything arrived quickly and packaged safely. Recommended.
Not sure how to rate Ambiance here (an issue I’ve had in the past with online purchases). Anyway, nice selection of West Coasters (specifically, AleSmith, The Bruery and Firestone Walker) and others. Double Jack was fresh as far as I could tell so that made me happy.
Selection is decent, but prices are high. Shipping is obviously built into prices, but they charge this anyway unless you order 6 (to fill up the whole shipper). Hard for me to account for that in "Value". I guess this is understandable, but they kind of try to get around that.
Overall easy to use (haven’t had to deal with any people, so service is based on this) and a nice go-to if I’m feeling like something different.
