Cheers: Small, yet decent selection of NY micros, enough to get you by on that random Tues night you feel like boozing it up and BOTW/Southtowne are closed. Selection of Custom Brewcrafter growlers, perfect for sitting on the Erie Canal in downtown Pittsford and watching the geese poop everywhere. Tons of eye candy here between the moms, daughters, and the always hot Wegmans cashiers. Friendlys is right down the street in case you feel the need to make a IPA float. Easy on/easy off the 590 without spilling a drop.
Jeers: Canadian geese. Go back to Canada. Your 1985 Caprice Classic is not welcome here. If you're not driving anything imported and expensivo, park out of sight. Located next to what may be the largest Barnes and Nobles in the world. No road flares for sale. Winter brings Christmas display with those freaking wicker lighted reindeer. I hate those things. No sampling allowed.

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!
