Its creation is a craft; hundreds of years old and still evolving. Its creators are artisans, fusing simple ingredients to create something inspiring, eye opening, revolutionary. It's more than ABV and IBUs. It's passion, community, and craft.
Beer love. It's why we're here.
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.
Often times called "the people whisperer", she spent her life in some of the back alleys and secret gardens of human interactions. For 16 years, Suzanne studied her way across the country at various and sundry universities, and could always be found at Some Restaurant, USA. There is actually not one single job in a restaurant that she hasn't held, if only for a short period of time. Excellent beer is the center and focus of Suzanne's universe, and she spends her days not taking herself too seriously while surrounded by hundreds of amazing beers. Born in Arkansas, Suzanne holds degrees in both Liberal Arts and Conflict Transformation, and seems to have special-people-negotiation-jedi-mind-trick-trance abilities. #BeerLove
