B&G Wine & Liquor is a convenient 3 blocks from my apartment. They’re also open until 10pm…dangerous.
What I like most about this liquor store (besides the obvious convenience) is the staff.
The employees are not only super friendly, but they’re entertaining. Upon stopping outside the door to make sure it was still open (since it was after 9pm), one of the workers opened up the door and said, “I’ve been waiting for you inside. You’re late. Were you going to stand out here all night?”
I’ve also been told to: “Keep doing what you’re doing,” after it was revealed I was, indeed, over 21 years of age.
However, my favorite encounter was the time my roommate bought a bottle of wine and informed them it was her post 5k run “treat.” When she walked outside the guy turned to me and said I should move out, because “she’s a bad influence on you.”
There’s a pretty decent selection and they carry Prestige Wine Group wine, which is the company I used to work for, so that’s always fun to represent.
They have a pretty good selection of beer, but I’m more excited about the selection of cider they have. While they carry the typical crisp apple, they also carry the Apple Ginger, Elderflower, and even a 12 pack of cans.
Selection for liquor is also good, there are 4 rows of different alcohol varietals.
Overall it’s pretty decently priced and a good place to stop for some libations.
Don’t be sketched out by the tilted sign. It’s legit.
