You wouldn't expect to find a great selection of craft beer at a gargantuan corporate supermarket like Jewel, but there it is. Of course they stock the usual macros up the wazoo (and they take up most of the room in the coolers), but I'd estimate that more than half of the beer aisle is devoted to craft beer. Both coasts and everything in between are represented very well, with Victory, Sam Adams, Point, Summit, Duvel, DT, New Glarus, Capital, Lakefront, Sprecher, Founder's, Paulaner, Spaten, Bell's, Big Sky, Goose Island, Sierra Nevada, Rogue, North Coast, Berghoff, Allagash, New Holland, Great Lakes, DFH, and many more that I can't remember.

Storage is pretty good. Many of the more popular micros and imports like Sam Adams, Sprecher, and Berghoff are given cooler space next to BMC and company. On average, prices are reasonable. Although some run a little high, sales are frequent and you can often get an additional discount by using your "Preferred Card," which you can get for free at checkout. Service in the liquor section was basically non-existent, and the cashiers are usually pretty surly, but the guys working in produce are very friendly and helpful. Service is fine, you just have to ask for it.

If you're in Racine this isn't the first place you should stop (check out Timer's first), but if you need to pick up some beer along with your groceries, this is definitely the place to go.
