I’m not a big fan of this Super Saver but it is in Beerfly for two reasons. Obviously, because it meets the requirements (barely) but it is also the “close out” store for beer in Lincoln. This is both good and bad. For example, at the end of summer (more like mid-fall) I found dozens of cases of Pete’s Wicked Summer Brew, SN Summerfest, NB Loft, and a couple other summer seasonals. Some of these beers where still within there “best by” dates, some were not. But who wants such average beers (especially in the fall)? I don’t. Hell, some six-packs were as cheap as $2.99 and I still passed. However, in the spring (or early summer) the winter beer will be on “close out.” Yep, I’ve found cheap Celebration Ale, NB Frambozen, Big But, etc. That’s nice! The year round beer selection is typical. Boulevard, Empyrean, New Belgium, Odell, and a modest selection of good imports like Orval, Liefmans, Kasteelbier that is not found at the other Super Savers in Lincoln. Plenty of macro lagers and midrange “craft” beer. Also the beer prices are great, sometimes six-packs of craft beer runs for less than $5. No complaints here. Advertised sales of beer as well.

This is a grocery store after all so the service is lacking.

The beer is randomly displaced in both coolers and in aisles around the alcohol department (which is in the middle/right-hand side of the store, kind of upfront by the checkouts).

IMO, this place is not worth seeking out. When I lived in Lincoln I bought a fair amount of beer here and when I visit the city (on beer hunts) I check in every once in awhile. Hopefully I’ll pop in at the right time this spring and score some cheap-ass winter beers; otherwise there is little need for me to go here.

Although this is the only Super Saver that meets the BeerFly listing requirements, the review of this Super Saver can also be applied to the other Lincoln stores.

Super Saver is a small discount grocery chain in Nebraska; while most of the beer available in the store is macro swill, it does have a decent selection of craft beer. The bad news: Super Saver generally focuses on the more readily available craft brews, and has less selection than a true liqour store. The good news: unlike many liqour stores, most of the beer at Super Saver is available cold, and there is rarely a price differential between warm and cold beer. In addition, craft beer sold at Super Saver is usually cheaper than what is sold elsewhere, and at any one time, several beers are on sale at a good price. Finally, Super Saver does a good job of carrying the seasonals for the brands they sell.

As this is a discount grocery store, service is (as should be expected) nonexistant. All in all, while Super Saver doesn't have the selection of a liqour store, it's the the place to go in Lincoln for the beer they do sell.
