Going off the first review I had mixed feelings about what I would find at this store. When I first walked in I went straight for the coolers, it's my first instinct. I didn't find much. One cooler, maybe two, filled with your normal CB finds. There were a few pumpkin ales (Abita, New Holland) that were cold and also cases of Founders Cerise. Besides that the coolers were a let down and my hope of finding something special was almost demolished UNTIL... I walked towards the back and saw a wall shelf and a center shelf STACKED with the good stuff. Not only was there so much CB here but they still had boxes of stuff below the shelves they hadn't even put away yet. They had a whole case of Two Brothers Atom Smasher. Here you'll find the almost complete lineup of Founders beers, generic flying dog beers which was disappointing. But there was Avery Beast, almost all the regular FFF plus seasonals like rabbid rabbit, blackheart, behemoth, and munsterfest. FFF was what I went there to find. They also had a whole aray of Southern Tier including some harder to find ones like farmers tan. Additional beers found were founders, Harpoon 100 barrel series, and Great Divide. They also had an average foreign beer selection. Service was ok, the clerk asked me once if I needed any help. Offered no advice on beer not that I wanted any, I knew what I was looking for. Don't go during rush hour though, it was almost impossible to turn into this parking lot. Definitely make a trip here though if you're in the area.

Visited over the summer during Swedish Day...

This store is in the corner space of a small strip mall, inhabiting what may have been a grocery store in a former life. Tile floors and florescent lights. Beer is in the back, a couple shelving units had a medium sized selection of craft and imports. A few BA & RB shelf tags were nice to see. The imports were a smattering of all types, with emphasis on Belgians. Rochefort, Maredsous, Chouffe, Reinaert, and others. No lambics besides Lindemans. The last lonely JP La Roja found it's way into my basket. There seemed to be good representation of craft breweries, 8 Lagunitas, 5-6 Bells, 4-5 Great Lakes, 5 Dark Horse, Great Divide, 6 or more 3 Floyds including out of season bombers. 4 cases of Moylans Hopsickle were stacked in the corner. There was a good assortment of craft in the coolers on the right side of the store. Also a dozen or so tallboy cans of Malt Liquor, including the elusive Camo Black Ice and Schlitz VSL. At the counter the clerk was nice enough, and had some Green Flash behind the counter that wasn't for sale apparently, but said it was available at their DeKalb store. Huh. Not as big of a place as Binnys down the street, but if you're by the river this is a closer stop.
