Reno - Liquor Stores


There are liquor stores of various sizes all over the place in the region.  Overall, though, Ben’s Fine Wine & Spirits and Total Wine have the largest selection in Reno for wine, beer, and liquor. Ben’s will even special order for you.  Whispering Vine is the place to find many of those higher-end, harder-to-find imported wines. And Craft Wine and Beer has a fabulous selection of really yummy imported and domestic craft beers and wines as well as some spirits. Nearly all grocery stores also carry booze, perhaps even with lower prices depending on what you’re looking for, so you may want to check further through the Grocery Store listings.
