UPDATE May 2009 - they have re-configured the store so that only 12 and 24 packs of macros are sitting in the cooker (area right next to their unprotected windows). Also, they seem to have cannibalized much of their bum wine section for craft beers. The layout and selection of this place are really improving. Also, prices are always good here, generally noticeably better than Lukas OP. The folks working the store seem to really know beer, and care.
UPDATE Summer 2008 - they still have the hot beer issue, but the selection here has improved to at least the same level as the 91st location.
Original Rating - April 2008 - Visited midday, not much help present at all. Beer is tucked away in the far corner of the store, a little scattered and certainly kept way too warm. I touched a 12 pack of Fat Tire and it was in the 80’s at least.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

If you’re in the area, it’s worth checking out. It’s better organized than the 91st St location and except for the mix-a-sixer choices, it has an arguably better selection. They have several beers that are about a buck less per bottle or sixer than I’ve seen at many other places (e.g.: Rochefort 8 @ $4.29). If you don’t live in this part of town, it’s one of those stores that’s worth popping into just to see if they have any rare finds that other stores no longer have (e.g.: I found 2006 Matilda & La Folie long after everyone else had sold their stock).
The staff was somewhat knowledgeable and eager to help. They had a pretty good selection for being in Kansas. Everything was reasonably priced, the lady up front said they do case discounts on beer though. She was really nice though.
