Update 08/25/08
No more Merchant du Vin brews. Separate Belgian beer cooler is now consolidated into main walk-in cooler in back of the store. Still the best selection of any Wegs in the area.

---

Most locals know that this Wegs offers tons of specialty items, food and otherwise. Many out-of-towners treat it as a visitor destination. But as a food destination it is quite something. Scored some lovely raw milk cheddar on a recent visit. But hell, the beer is what these reviews are for, so on to it.

Wegmans Pittsford does good job with the beer selection here, the best selection of any of their stores I've visited. I picked up some Cascazilla, SN Celebration and Unibroue Edition 2005 & Blanche de Chambly here last weekend. In addition, some other brews you'll find are several selections from these brewers: Unibroue, Rogue, Southern Tier, Ithaca, Brooklyn, Flying Bison, Custom Brewcrafters and Rohrbach (pre-filled) growlers, Magic Hat, Ommegang, Duvel, Rodenbach, Ayinger, Merhcant du Vin offerings - Orval, Pinkus, Sam Smith, etc. One thing to note is that the beers are kept in two different locations, one just around the corner from the meat & gourmet cheese section and another at the far right back of the store past the dairy. Service, well, this is a grocery store after all. Not a beer destination but if you're doing some shopping or are in the area, it's got a very respectable selection.

Wegmans has the best beer selection I've ever seen for a grocery store.

The food rating is so high because Wegmans is a killer grocery store- great selections. I don't want to move away from Wegmans' food options. There's also a small restaurant in this particular location with made to order food and beer on tap. About 5 taps at any given time, nothing crazy, but nice anyway. Boston Lager, Sam seasonal, Saranac seasonal, Next Door Ale, and Saranac rootbeer always on tap.

In the store itself, the beer selection is nice. Divided by US geographical area (local, East Coast, and West Coast) as well as by country/area (Germany, England, Belgium, Asia, etc). It's the best place to get typical craft selections due to prices- most reasonable in the area for craft beer. They have a good mix-a-six section for 9.99- always some interesting lower-ABV options there, although I did once find a trove of Breakfast Stout in the mix a six.

Not much service to speak of, most employees don't know jack about beer. Doesn't really matter, though.

Worth a stop for the beer and everything else. This Wegmans is a behemoth, the flagship one in the area. Great stuff all around.

Wegmans is my beer store. My local Wegmans is one of the smallest in the area but has a fantastic beer selection. It has all the major national brands, all the trappists, regional brands like Southern Tier, Great Lakes, Flying Bison and others. The sections are divided up by the country of origin. You can get anything from Weihenstephaner to Brooklyn Local 1. They also are very good with the larger bottles of beer like Liefmans and Leffe.

Craft beer displays are set up around the store next to appropriate food items. The section itself is quite large in my store, with a large walk-in cooler and 3 aisles of beer with a smaller side cooler.

They have a create a six pack section where you can choose 6 bottles to make trying great beer even easier. In my last run, I chose Dogfish Head Midas Touch, Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout, Sierra Nevada Celebration, Otter Creek Black IPA, Redhook ESB and Leffe Blond. I never am disappointed with this place.

Huge grocery super market, in a huge big box store kinda area. You will be able to find ALL of your veggies, meat, fruit, general kitchen needa. The beer is way in the back right of the store as you enter. Multiple shelving units, a large walk in cooler and boxes of brew displayed around tghe area. The have a lot of beer....good variety of the expected national heavy hitters, regional and also bottle of local, lesser seen options. Typical imports also available.
Fine spot to stock up food and beer needs. I'll be back.

This and Penfield are the two best Wegmans in the Rochester area for beer, and I'm fairly sure Pittsford has the widest selection of them all. Aside from Beers of the World, Wegmans is the best place to go for beer in Rochester and is less expensive (though has a smaller selection) than BotW. There are belgians, east coast and west coast brews, german beers, irish, italian, english, mexican, and so on. It seems like the selection is getting better all the time. I always feel good about supporting Wegmans, they are the best grocery store period. Thanks Wegs for setting the trend that other grocery stores are now beginning to follow!
