I stopped at this location after hearing about it on BA. It was well worth the stop. I was able to grab a BCBVS, a DFH Namaste (not available in Indiana yet), a Mikkeller Beer Geek Bacon, a 2010 DFH Olde School Barleywine and my girlfriend bought their last Imperial Brown Goose for my birthday. They have a very, very small selection. What they do have is top notch. They feature two small, sliding door coolers that contain only high grade choices. They even had a few retired beers. Aside from that they had a lineup of pretty solid bombers and singles on the counter. The clerks were also very kind and helpful. I feel that this location is a hidden gem.

I wish there was an 'overall' category for place ratings, so I coulkd give this store a 1 -- for beer prices alone. And this rating only will deal with beer, not the wine, which is most of the store.
It's a handsome store, lots of dark wood and wine racks with beer on the counter and in a couple small coolers in the back. Super nice woman at the counter. A few items you don't see anywhere else: Raison D'Extra (last brewed in 2006?), 2007 Bourbon County Stout 12oz come to mind. They don't waste their time selling marcos, or six packs at all. Everything is by-the-bottle.
But the prices are OUTRAGEOUS. If you want to pay restaurant prices to take a bottle home, this is your place. I'd just as soon go to West Lakeview or Armanetti's, where the prices are 80 PERCENT LESS FOR THE SAME THING. Example: New Belgium Super Cru, just over $10 at Lush, $6 at West Lakeview. Boulevard 750s are $20, $12 at Armanetti's. That 2007 GI BCBS? $9 per 12oz. I just can't support anyone who wants to so brazenly rip me off like that.
I did complain about the prices, very nice woman at the counter was surprised and possibly offended, said they just use their standard markup. So they are either getting ripped off from the distributors, or their standard markup is about 100%, in contrast to the average 25% at most stores.
To sum up: Great selection. A few very rare/unique beers they put out on occasion. If you can find the same thing anywhere else, you will save tons of money. I won't be back.
