Stopped in on the way down Highway 45. Located in a strip mall with condos on the 2nd floor oddly enough, next door to a nice cafe, Something's Brewing.

The storefront was wider than it was deep, largely stocked with wine, but with clearly visible beer coolers along the right hand wall. Also there were open cases haphazardly all over the floor, with price signs clearly marked. I noticed Alpha Klaus and an obscure Japanese Weizen among them. Prices were fair and there was a good variety, maybe 125-150 beers. Highlights were Jolly Pumpkin, Half Acre, Bruery Rueuze/Sour in the Rye, Bells, Central Waters, Stone. Overall a good selection with a few limited run seasonals like HA Lager Town and FFF Alpha Klaus. Not as broad or obscure as larger stores, but a quality selection.

Service was good, the owner greeted us, and later asked if we needed any help, and chatted with us at the register.

Overall one of the better shops in the area, which doesn't seem to have much else around.

This is located in a mini-mall across from the College. TO get to it you have to go through the entrance of a neighborhood which is odd.

Inside is is clean, but all of the beer is on the floor right in the light, they need some shelves. There is also beer in the coolers. The selection is decent, I found a few rarer brews and a few special ones that had sold out elsewhere.

Watch the date codes on the beer. This is obviously a wine-forward store that has a decent beer supply. But they need to treat the beer with a little more respect.
