Thanks for posting this. I never knew about Lucas Liquors and I lived in Balwin last year!

I just got back and I must admit that place is amazing! Thank god the wife wasn't with me cause I went crazy and ended up buying 2 Make Your Own 6 packs, a 6pack of O'Fallon's 5day IPA, and another 5 or 6 22oz's that I've never tried.

Oh yeah I do that too..... It's even worse for me though, because around here we don't have liquor stores with that big of selections. I don't think people in this town know that anything else besides bud light exists....

Wow, it's good to hear this. I do the exact same thing. It pisses the GF off to no end! She can't seem to understand why I like to take my time looking at beer. It's literally... shopping for men.

Done it...but not for a long time. The last time I was in a "beer mecca" was when I was in college - there was a "Liquor Outlet" or something like that nearby. I sure wish I knew more about good beer when I was in college...

It takes me less than 10 minutes to make up my mind at any of the local stores here. One place has an OK selection of 22 oz micros.

Me too. But, usually, I "forget" to put one of the others back.

Even worse for me than spending countless time looking at all the brews is the fact that I have never left a beer store without dropping a hundred bucks or more...yes, it's definitely a candy store for me...

There's a place about a half hour away from me that sells close to 800 brews.

Bottleworks! They have hundreds of kinds of beer, and I never spend less than $30-50 there buying singles of all sorts of types of beer.

Is it bad to bring your kids with you to a BevMo? So many choices that I simply point them to the area of beers that I like and ask them for help. Otherwise I spend a good hour in the store. Sadly, I never leave without drooling upon myself.

I went in to pick up one bottle of Kolsch tonight and was there for 20 minutes, I spent 18 minutes looking at beers and didn't even decide that I wanted any of them.
