My husband is a huuuuuge beer geek and I have sort of become a junior beer geek by association, so I loved this place almost as much as my husband.
They claim to have the biggest beer selection in the world, which wouldn’t surprise me if it’s true. It’s not necessarily the most rare or esoteric selection but there were certainly enough new beers here for us. Their international selection is the best I’ve seen in any beer store (Germany and Belgium each have their own aisle, and there are sections for Italy, Spain, Mexico, Canada (not so many Canadian beers, seems like they are ripe for a craft beer takeover), and the UK. And aisles and aisles of domestic craft beer, along with non-craft standards for non-beer geeks.
The best part is that you can grab any single beer in a 4 or 6 pack and purchase it separately. We took advantage of this perk and bought about 40 new beers we’ve never tried before, from stouts to wheat beers to IPAs to sours and more.
If you’re looking for variety this is definitely the place to go. I’m not sure how their prices are in terms of value if you’re buying 6 packs or cases. We found an Ommegang listed at Half Time for $19.99 at Costco for $12.99 a half hour later. Also, make sure you check dates on the more perishable beers as I don’t know how fast turnover is here.
