Just finding this place is a bit of a mission in and of itself. It is a bit tucked away in a residential neighborhood a little off the beaten path. But, it is worth the trip for sure.
Very good selection of craft beers, obviously, but no really hard-to-find brews that you couldn't obtain elsewhere on this particular date. But, they did have some awesome gift packs that really caught my eye. One of them in particular was a St. Bernardus pack of four beers and some kick-ass logo'd glasses for $19.99 I believe. Damn, I had already blown most of the money that I had won from a recent rash of successful bets!
The only thing that put me off was the service. I guess it's understandable due to the volume of customers at the time, but you will probably get totally ignored if you don't have a personal repoire with them. Other than that, this is should be your go-to spot if you live anywhere close.

The overall selection of beers are good. They offer a wide variety of imported beers from Canada and Europe. They offer a moderate selection of beers from California. A few from Oregon and some scatterings of other breweries from throughout the country. They do offer a nice amount of bombers. The service was nothing more than average. They weren't rude and they weren't nice. The employees did their job. I'm fine with that. The overall pricing seemed to be a bit on the high side. Lot's of bombers in the $8-$12 range. From there the proces went up up up. Very few bombers for less than $6.

SO I shopped online, first of all, like 5 of the bottles I ordered they didn't have. So take them off the website. The shipping is expensive. Then one of the beers they sent was the wrong one, and did not reply to emails after that. It happened to be Orange Blossom Ale and it was terrible when I drank it after I figured there was no return.
So their service is really low, they at least emailed saying they didn't have a few products though.
The quality is fine, they shipped it in a a nice shipper, the beer seemed fresh. They also have a good selection of domestics and also imports unavailable to me.
But they have some issues. So be careful when ordering online.
