Beer Geeks Welcome! Amazing Beer, Hospitality, Education.
We spend our lives in search of beers made in breweries just down the street or on the other side of the world, that are well-crafted and good examples of either their style or what we think excellent beer should be.
Our customers are the reason we exist and you should expect to be treated like you are important to us! We carry boxes to cars, make great eye contact, genuinely care how your day is going. We promise that you'll always have an awesome experience at any Craft Beer Cellar.
All beer geeks in all of our stores are, at minimum, either Cicerone Certified Beer Servers or BJCP Recognized Judges, and many go on to obtain higher certifications. Rest assured that we have studied & researched every single beer in all of our stores, before we made a decision to put it on the shelf.
Craft Beer Cellar™ is on a quest to continue contributing to the advancement of the small but mighty, Craft Beer Industry - an industry that has more than doubled in sales in the past 10 years! There are over 5000 Craft Breweries in the US, with another 2000 in planning. There is enormous potential for growth in this $100 billion dollar industry, as Craft Beer comprises only 11% of the market.
