2009: They put the last known keg of Imperial Cane & Ebel on draft for a special event. Their outdoor patio was pretty sweet.

EDIT: 2007 I've had better service experience here since the first time visiting, the manager is very helpful and enthusiastic about their beer. Selection has slightly improved, with occasional limited run selections.

A wine shop that happens to have a small, well-rounded selection of beer. Possibly due to their close proximity to off-campus housing...

There are two cooler doors in the rear of the store, containing 40 or so beers, focused on the "high-end". Chimay, Piraat, 3 Floyds, DFH, etc. They do have a handful of things not available other places, which bumps up the selection score, but based on quantity, they are sorely lacking. Think "beer boutique". The beer selection is a footnote to the staggering amount of expensive wines they offer.
Apparently they have a tap available for growlers, but the cost of the growler itself was astronomical, therefore not exactly cost effective.

To their credit they had singles available, but on the pricey side, for example, Alpha King was around $3 a 12oz. If a beer has any degree of rarity, you'll pay a premium for it. Beer never felt more like "luxury goods" than it does here.

The employee never left the cashier counter, but answered my questions after ringing up my purchase. They were more interested in the wine they were drinking it seemed.

When I heard about the place I was optimistic, but it's obvious they need to work out a few issues if they want to be known as a beer store.
