This was a great stop.
Quality of all beers purchased are good
Through the roof service, they gave me a case discount even though I was a little short (shouldn't have bought so many beers in new Mexico! ). Everyone there was positive & beer friendly
Ballast point, port, Moylan's, left coast, many out of state & AZ beers. Loads of west coast goodies!! Import selection looked good as well, but already blew the beer budget!
Great prices, love their extensive singles & bomber selection!
If I ever go back through Tucson, this will be my first stop!

Visited 3/3/2011 during Ratebeer Winter Gathering.
Located in a small dusty shopping center next to a planned parenthood (or some such place). I got a kick out of that.
The majority of the floor space is liquor and wine but the back wall and the whole row of fridges are full of beer. One set of shelves is dedicated to Bells. A couple of the fridges are full of AZ and NM beer. The rest is an interesting mix of imported beer and random breweries that distribute to AZ. I found most of the Crooked Line series from Uinta on the shelf but only picked up the barleywine.
The service was nice and very grateful to us for bringing in a dozen customers, though I suspect it had something to do with knowing that they'd be getting rated. Either way, they are nice people.
Prices were good on most items ($1-$2 for single 12 oz's) and not so good on other items ($12-$15 for the Crooked Line beers). For what ever reason there was a 10% off for beer that day.
Would definitely go back for some new ticks, or for some Bell's.

Visited this location based upon Beerfly. Nice little store.
Overall they had a nice selection, I didn't find too many exciting offerings, but that may be more of a comment of the fine stores back in Boston. The help was very friendly and most imformative.
I was a little concerned that I saw some dated beers on the shelves.. I saw Deshutes Hop Trip on the shelf which is a wet hop fall release that is supposed to be consumed shortly after release. Once I commented, the staff said...."yeah, that's long in the tooth"
Frankly, they need to handle this before the beer gets this old. I also saw a couple IPA's that were bottled in March of '08. That's not good.
On the other hand their pricing is excellent. All single bottles are the price of a six pack divided by 6. Very reasonable.
When I visit Tucson again, I will certainly return to this location.

Stopped by this place on a business trip after reading reviews here on BA.
Its in a small plaza...kind of hidden, but good parking and somewhat easy to find.
Atmosphere - its a liquor store...cool beerk geeks behind the counter
Nice selection of brews...lots of odell, New Belgium, local Arizona, epic, left hand, lost abbey, and rogue. I bought a Fantome Boo! - $15, an odell Mountain Standard single, and a Bells New Coast Old Ale ~ $2.50 each. You can mix singles (awesome for travellers) and apparently you get a discount if you pick up anything over a case...
So nice selecton, not huge, but well stocked and thoughtful, good nice service, and somewhat reasonable/average prices. Nice spot.

Q-- Amazing selection of stuff for such a small place!!! It is a bit crowded but it is very well organized and put together.
S-- Simply put.... The best in Tucson. Staff is knowledgeable and willing to talk. They know beer, wine and liquor.
S-- not as good as bevmo but almost on par. Excellent wine selections and the beer is muy bueno. Once you have been in the store a few times you figure out the layout and how it works. Beer selection is excellent and layed out very well. really like how they stress a mix a 6 pack in that store.
V-- Hours are the only issues with this store. If you live in the foothills or on the east side of Tucson it can be difficult to get there but it is worth it. Amazing selection for such a small footprint.

Dare I say the ultimate beer store for the Tucson area? I didn't venture into this store a whole lot while at the U of A, as I was busy sampling in bulk Keystone Light and Natural Light. I got a chance to see this when I went back. In-credible, especially considering it is Tucson. Old, family-owned shop. Tons of Belgian and Euro imports, not in coolers, which is a big plus. A larger supply of regional micros (Avery, Nimbus, Left Hand) as well as bigger names (Dogfish Head, Rogue) AND a number of small ones I have never seen before. Prices can be premium, another reason most college kids stay away, but what's new.

First stop while in town for business. Had to stock up the fridge.
10 or so 2 door coolers filled with a nice selection of west cost goodness. 6 doors of singles, which is nice, all priced nicely. Other coolers filled with 6 packs, bombers, and 750 ML bottles. Lots of Stone, Great Divide, Ska Brewing, Deschutes, Left Coast, Moylans, Dogfish, Rogue, etc.
Young lady at the counter was nice and friendly. Offered suggestion between Nimbus Brewery and Gentle Ben's on what they have to offer.
Seems to be the go to shop in town and the place I'll go to stock up next time I'm there.

Visited this place on a recent trip to Tucson. Tons of stock cramped into a small place. Racks as high as the eyes can see.
As soon as you walk in, take a left and you are greeted with a cooler of bombers from port, lagunitas, alaskan, green flash, and many others. The rest of the beer is just past the cashier counter in coolers along the right and then 2-4 racks in the back. Singles all over the place with very good prices. There are racks of 6 packs in the back of which you are encouraged to break up.
I walked out with a mixed 6 and three bombers and it cost me $30. Bombers of Lagunitas Hop Stoopid, 2008 Alaskan Smoked Porter, and Port Hop-15. The mixed 6 was of: Deschutes Inversion IPA and Mirror Pond Pale Ale, Alaskan IPA, Goose Island Bourbon County Stout, New Belgium Abbey, and Nimbus Oatmeal Stout.
The owner (at least he appeared to be) was standing behind the counter chatting about beer and pouring some samples of the Full Sail Barrel Aged Black Gold (which was fantastic and made my friend go back to get one.)
Overall, a pretty good selection. I would have liked to have seen a little more than just the staples of some of the breweries, but there were so many breweries represented, it made up for it. A fine store.

Plaza is the best liquor store in Tucson. They have the biggest selection overall, and always have new/seasonal items in all the time. Plenty of Belgians, American Craft Brews, other Imports, and area brews to choose from. It's kind of an old little place, but that gives it character. The staff are always helpful and will suggest brews for you if you like. They often give you a taste of some of their newer brews too. Over the past few months I've found some great brews there- Speedway Stout, Fuller's Vintage Ale, JW Lees, and more. Anything distrubuted to our area is usually available. The best part is you can buy 12 ounce singles of anything in the store to make your own 6-pack, or your own case sometimes if you are like me. They also get points for keeping the beer out of bright light so it doesn't get skunked. The prices are pretty average also. Nothing else in town compares...

Fine selection by any standard, and one of the best places to buy beer-to-go in Tucson. Located a few miles north of the University, Plaza Liquors is a small store but is packed with a large selection of fine beer (and wine/liquor). Lots of hard to find single bottles, and a very good selection of six-packs. See their website for current specials -- though it appears now to be a few months out of date. Very friendly staff -- this seems to be one of the more beer-oriented liquor stores in town. Nice to find a place with a good selection of quality beverages that isn't just run by wine snobs!
