Default Tell me if you do this!!!

Ok so there is a beer store about a mile from my place that LITERALLY has in excess of 200 to 300 different types of beer if not more. The first time i went in I was in awe like a kid in a candy store. The people at this liquor store which i will call the beer mecca asked me if i needed any help at least 3 times. I always try a couple new brews everytime i go in there but i enjoy.....well......beer shopping. I always spend a good 45minutes just looking. I feel like a chic in a mall or something. So let me know if i seriously have a problem or if you guys do this too.

You're a freak!!! Is this a BevMo or a Specks? I've evaluated 6-pack choices more thoroughly than job offers, apartments and auto purchases.

I can top you. My local beer/wine store is LITERALLY a stone's throw away from me. Less than a block. They have a 70 foot wall of refridgerator doors facing almost as many feet of warm-stocked shelves. I think they basically carry every single beer their distributors can get them.

oh, and yes, I stare forever. They keep asking me if I want help. I tell them I've already tried them all and i can't decide which one to get.

The place here in stl is lukas liquor. their cold beer selection alone is probably 150 feet. Then they have the "good" beer singles, 6 packs, cases of everything from around the world.

sounds awesome. i need to find a new place. every time i find one, i go on a binge and try everything in the store. rarely do they update their stock at certain places. there are ten million places in this area, but i'm on my bicycle right now, which makes it kinda tough. i'm rebuilding my carb tonight, so hopefully i'll have a truck and then i can go brew-hunting again!

Guilty.

I pick up a couple of 6ers then continue "shopping". When I come across another brew I like or would like to try I put one of the others back... decisions, decisions...

One of my good friends works at one of the very large, very extensive, liquor/beer/wine stores here in town and brings over new stuff all the time.

That employee discount comes in handy I tell ya.
