I went in there on Friday for the first time and came away with a good impression. The store itself is pretty bare bones. It opened this year and you can tell they need to get on their feet before investing more money back into the store. So what they don't have in atmosphere is made up with the selection of beer and liquor they carry.

You'll find one door of Miller/Coors/Bud. The rest of the fridge doors are filled with somewhat common and uncommon selections, which is fantastic. I wanted to try some new beers and Before You Go Liquors delivers with a wide variety of types.

I bought the Spaten Oktoberfest, New Belgium Mothership, and Flying Dog Dogtoberfest. Their selection changes with the seasons, so many of their wheat beers are gone for now with the arrival of the oktoberfest and harvest ales.

I saw signs that said they are hosting a vodka tasting this week and a wine tasting next week. There isn't much in terms of advertisement, but it is really nice to see them adding events to hopefully draw people to the store.

It's difficult to find if you aren't looking for it, because it's tucked away in the back of a strip mall. But the selection alone makes it worthwhile to go in and check out. Prices were not outrageous either, so definitely stop by.

Different ownership, less craft beer. Still trying to sell infected BCS a year after the fact for jacked prices. I'm not coming back.

This is a brand new store that just opened a couple weeks ago, conveniently near my work. They are just getting started, but already stock a nice selection of craft staples, with a focus on local/regional brewers. The guy working there was really friendly and mentioned they will order beers for you. I asked for Hopslam, and it was there a couple days later. Awesome!

Sample list of the beers they carry:
Three Floyds (Black Sun, Dreadnaught, + sixers), Abita, Allagash, Arcadia, Avery, Bells (Hopslam, Expy), Breckenridge, Coniston, Dark Horse, Delirium, Dogfish, Flying Dog, Founders, Goose Island, Great Divide, Great Lakes, Green Flash (West Coast IPA sixers + bombers), Lagunitas, Left Hand, Lost Abbey, Magic Hat, Metropolitan, Moylans, New Belgium, New Holland, Port Brew, Rogue, Ska, St Louis, Two Brothers, Victory, Wells, Koningshoeven, Kulmbacher, Leffe, Pauwel Kwak, Saison Dupont, Tripel Karmeleit. Recent arrivals: Half Acre Daisy Cutter & Big Hugs, also 2010 Bigfoot just arrived this week.

They have plenty of room to expand, and are off to a good start with the beer selection.

It's a little hard to find, it's behind the subway/dunkin donuts, actually facing Elston Ave. There's a small parking lot in front. Look for the neons in the window, they don't have anything on the shopping center sign yet.
