Anyone ever been to one?  I guess it is a micro-brew bar that specializes in the local brews.

 

I think this one opens up in a few weeks.

Sounds like they might be decent places. Would be cool to have a place to get multiple local micros without having to go to each one individually.

 

Speaking of good beer, we were in Omaha over Christmas and I wanted to pick up some stout to drink at the relatives house. So I ask them where the nearest liquor store is and they take me to HyVee. Damn! They had a hell of a selection of beer from all over. They even had a couple from Crabtree Brewing right here in Greeley which really surprised me because I didn't think they were all that widely distributed. Now I know why you guys in Nebraska always mention the liquor sales at HyVee. Grocery stores around here don't have sh#t for beer or alcohol.

I actually kinda like not having a full liquor/beer section inside the grocery stores. When I go to an actual liquor store, they know what they're talking about. They can recommend stuff to you or, if you get to know them well enough, even put in a order for you. If I buy booze at the grocery store, Timmy the high school bag boy isn't going to know jack sh#t about anything :lol:

Oh I agree. I still prefer going to a real liquor store for those reasons. But it would be nice once in awhile to be able to grab a sixer at the grocery store. Years ago I did that here in Colorado and found out when I got home that it was some 3.2% crap. I don't even know what the grocery stores carry today. I just don't get it there.

I visited the one in Centennial a few months after it opened. It was a typical theme-based suburb chain. The food was below average. The beer selection was below other franchise chains like Yard House or BJs Brewhouse. The best tap selection I have seen out here has to be Falling Rock in downtown Denver.

 

Kroger has lobbied for years to allow more than 3.2% beer sales at grocery stores out here. It finally passed last year and will be in full effect by 2037 (probably 2057 for Greeley, lulz). The reason for the long phase-in is to prevent all the liquor stores going bankrupt overnight. This was more to keep the tax-revenue up while avoiding alcohol price wars...
