Awesome vintage sign out front reminded me of being on Route 66, or some roadside in the 1950's at least. Inside the beer was on the left hand side, on 3 short shelves. In the coolers, craft and macro was sort of disorganized and mixed together. One freestanding cooler had some random bombers and singles. DFH 120 Min. was in a little locked case with the expensive scotch, and also in the one freestanding cooler.

The majority of the selection was on the shelves, sort of close to the front windows, but partially obscured behind a window wine display. I noticed a few Rogue, Lagunitas, DFH, 2 Bros, basic FFF, and some standard Belgians. Selection had some good staples but nothing especially rare. In the coolers the Cane & Ebel was fresh, but there was some dust on the shelves. The Hop Stoopid I bought here ended up being pretty faded due to age.

Checkout was pretty quick, the clerk was Scottish and the lady in front of me went off on a tangent about Highlander. That was pretty funny.

I saw the other review on here and had to login and make my own review. I go to this fine store every week and it is always a great experience. The beer is always fresh(and they really CARE about the freshness of their brews too!), the prices are very fair (and their sale prices beat anything else in the area!) and they have even recently given their store an overhaul and painted everything and it looks wonderful! I highly recommend this store to the serious beer drinker as they do have all the standards but have a good selection of micros and imports too that you don't see every day. Nice works, Malloy's. Keep it up!

This is a fairly average beer store that has a large selection of domestic average joe swilly beers. Don't get me wrong, on occasion you may find some decent craftbrews which are worth taking home. My other complaint about this location has been buying imported macros like Heineken, Becks or Coronas and they all tasted like they had been set directly under flourescent lights - super skunky! Mind you, this was years ago before I realized that "good" beer exists.

This location has a large selection of import and domestic and some regional wines, if you are in to that sort of thing and also has some fine liquor bottles. Prices are fair and can be mildly high.

My favorite thing about this location is the huge old school lit-up sign oh and the service is decent.
