this place rocks!! they have almost everything from singles to gift packs to cases and also, 4 and 6 packs. they also have a nice variety of kegs on the spot. they also sell utopias once a year. i only wish they had more gift packs with glasses. awesome place.
If YOU know what you’re looking for then this is the place to go. If you need help, go to Knightly Spirits. Their St. Bernardus, Three Philosophers, Dogfish, etc. is less expensive and they run coupons in the paper from time to time. I have found that the more time I have to browse the better the stuff I find. Their stockers make mistakes and mislabel and put beer int he wrong place. I realize I go to a wine store for beer and I have to do the legwork.
OK, obviously ambiance is not very high as it is basically a warehouse type setup. The service is eager to please, but the problem is nobody there knows anything about beer. The beer selection is very good, and most are available as singles. There’s nothing super rare, but the overall selection does beat out 95% of stores in the area. Only store I have seen with a better beer selection in the area is Knightly Spirits. Pricing on most items is excellent, and they do mess up in your favor on occassion, though people snatch up the errors very quickly. This is my main beer/liquor store, as its very close to my house, but I’ll still make the trek out to Knightly for the really good stuff.
the service is there -if you ask for it- the check out girls are somewhat friendly if not dull. the selection is pretty darn good and the store seems well put togeather. they arent expensive but not especially cheap. a little cold like a big ass friggin walmart or target. but i guess they do all right. shit i bought about 12 different beers. if i didnt know what i was doin’ i mighta been up the creek!
Ambiance, I’ve said it before, its the walmart of alcohol. The employees although friendly don’t really know about anything they sell. Selection although large, there’s nothing really that hard to find. Knightly Spirits still has that market cornered! It close to my house, so if i’m in a jam and need something, i’ll hit it up. And occasionally they’l screw up on their pricing and you can get some steals!
Good selection of macros and decent selection of Belgians mostly all available in singles. They offer good prices, present you with a list of available beers with the sizes of each, but the service and ambiance are less than desirable.
Drove by this place when it first opened and decided to check it out. Never been in one before. I was pretty amazed at how many beers they had. This place is the size of a grocery store and their beer selection is pretty massive. They advertised 1000 bottles and I have no idea how accurate that is but they have a lot.
The good - They sell singles of all their beers. They have the best single selection of 12oz of any place I’ve seen in the area. They also have a bunch of cases to buy. The prices are incredibly low on everything. With few exceptions the prices were the lowest I’d ever seen.
The bad - This place is like Wal-Mart. You do not get a friendly vibe in here and I had the repeated feeling I was selling my soul buying stuff from them. The staff was very grocery like and I got the feeling everyone who worked there (and there were about 50 of them) were just there because it was a job and had no interest in wine let alone beer. My friends and I were carded as we were choosing our selections which was odd.
Overall this is a great place if you don’t feel guilty purchasing from corporate stores. I felt dirty and will spend the extra buck or two and go to the Big C or Knightly. Still the mixed 6 packs are hard to resist.
