Visited here in mid August ’16 while in the area for vacation. About on par with other Total Wines I have been to across the country, At least four aisles of beer to choose from. Like most TWs a whole aisle full of craft singles on one side and common imports on the other. Solid selection of nothing but seasonals which was nice. Overall, several hundred singles - which is what I am looking for when on the road. Solid retailer, decent prices, nice friendly service

Big box alcohol and drinks store, huge selection of mildly-curated beers on huge warehouse shelves. Prices are usually fair, but make sure you check the freshness of the product. You can always find something a bit unusual or interesting in the selection here, its wide, but it isn’t the first place I’d look for something local or truly special.

There’s a lot to like about this place. The selection and prices are both really good, though they don’t quite cross over into specialty territory. You’re just here to shop, so those two things are all that really matters. It’s not that hard to get to; pretty close to the freeway. Decent amount of parking. Plenty of shopping carts, nice clean building. As of this writing, it’s newly installed (in existing construction), so everything inside still feels clean and nice. It’s relatively easy to find what you need once you’re in the right section--the types of wine and the types of liquor are all well curated. Getting from one section to another within the store isn’t always the most predictable journey, but that’s OK. The place is huge, and you know they want you to zig zag around in here. They’re really tough on distributors and producers because they can buy in such bulk. So they don’t tend to get a lot of the dearly beloved specialty releases, but they DO get tons and tons of good choices, usually in every format bottle available. And if you’re shopping for a wine or spirits geek, you can probably find them something--something good for every day, at least, if not a crown jewel for the cellar or anything like that. Their buying power allows them to set pretty good prices. You will find occasional sales at smaller shops that easily beat prices here, but if you just need to pick up some stuff, this is a fairly practical place to shop for sure. Keep in mind that there’s tax added to the sticker price--they show the final amount in smaller print under the "sale" price on the price tags on each shelf. It’s a lot of tax, generally speaking, so it’s worth keeping in mind. The service here ranges from some helpful and nice kids who can give you straight answers about what’s in the store, all the way down to sullen and withdrawn mouth-breathers. One classic goofball got me coming and going last night; he was re-stocking shelves and dragged his warehouse cart past me so slowly that I just had to stand there like I was a car at a railroad crossing. By way of acknowledging my presence, he ducked his head and made a sound like "uuuuurrrrhhhh," which I assume meant "oh, excuse me, I should have let you slip past before I turned down this aisle." Then guess who’s at the register? Spivey again, with a pleasant "nnnnrrrrggg" as he handed me my receipt. I assume "nnnnrrrrggg" was his way of saying "thanks for shopping here. Have a great night, and happy holidays!"

Typical TW, but with perhaps the best width of locals I’ve seeen in one. Worth a stop for WA and even OR beers not likely to be seen in Central California. Wish I lived nearby. Lots and lots of ciders.

I haven’t been in a Total Wine for very long time; this place is a huge supermarket for alcoholic beverages; a lot of beers to choose from, nothing rare (I actually remember a better selection in the other one). There is a growler station, with many taps, but the tasting is unfortunately limited to only a few hours, Friday and Saturday if I remember. No assistants around the aisles when I visited, I had to go across all the warehouse to find somebody. I’m not totally convinced by the sorting either.

Large selection. Bevmo style. They do a good job filling growlers and their prices are unreal.

Total Wine: Where good hops go to die. They had a 15% off sale, so I had to stop in and pick up a bunch of frequently rated beers that I’d missed out on. They have a great selection, no doubt. But they don’t move their beer fast enough, so you need to be careful about what you buy. Strong stouts, Belgians, barley wines, are fine. IPAs and related styles are awful. I picked up a Port Shark Attack that had been sitting on the shelf for a year and a half. Totally unacceptable if you know your beer.

Has a bigger selection and lower prices than anyone in the Northend. This is the place for beer wine and spirits.
