Wow!! Read about this place on BA when my wife said she wanted to drive across the bridge over Lake Pontchatrain. Figured it sounded good and was worth a look-see. Pulled up in front of this unassuming grocery store, walked in looking around for the beer section when I got to the right hand side of the store and realized they had a whole room for beer/wine/alcohol. It's more like a little store attached to the grocery store.

Huge selection of beers. Most can be bought in singles which is terrific for those of us on vacation that want to try as many local beers as possible. A couple of rows of un-refrigerated beers and a whole wall of beer coolers. Most of the craft beers in the coolers was either bombers or imports.

Prices were very reasonable as far as I was concerned.

If you're in the New Orleans area and have a vehicle, this store is definitely worth the drive!

vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4.75 | service: 3.5 | selection: 4.75 | $$

Atmosphere: It's a fairly unassuming supermarket, with a huge alcohol warehouse attached to it.

Quality: Good quality here, big names, as well as various other beer that I've never even heard of. (wine and liquor selection is equal to the task)

Service: Did not really encounter anyone until I got to the register. I prefer the hands off approach though, if I have a question I'll be more than happy to ask.

Selection: Good selection, and as good as any place I've seen in Louisiana.

Food: Didn't try any, but I've heard from people that they do have a pretty sweet deli as well.

Value: I think the value is pretty good, not too pricey, not dirt cheap, but very affordable.

Definitely recommended if you're in the area. It's worth a look.

Stopped by this place during a work trip after seeing a few reviews here on BA. Its basically a supermarket with a pretty good beer selection. There are a lot of beers to choose from but most are rather ordinary; however there are a few gems in the mix. I got a Scotch Silly, a De Struisse Outblack, and a German Hefe (I forgot which). All for like $12. They have lots of Mikkeller single hops, a pretty good belgian selection, and the rest is just nice to see. There are "2" coolers. The macros are kept cold and the craft is kept at 55 degrees (according to the clerk). While I have seen way better stores in my day, this is by far the best store I found north of the Lake. Worth a stop if you are in the area (or worth visiting as often as possible if this is your only source) :)

New Orleans can be a tough place to get an epic beer haul done. But if you've got wheels and a trunk, this is where it happens.

Stein's has some rarities you won't find here (La Trappe Oak Aged, a few Fantome varieties), but Acquistapace's had some too, like a 2010 vintage Pannepot and the Schlenkerla Dopplebock. Most Belgians are on shelves, un-chilled. Big selection. Then there's plenty of cooler space devoted to Germans and Americans, with pretty much everything that makes it to LA available. (I noted only the absence of Pretty Things, which Stein's has.)

On top of a vast selection and lots of room to roam, the prices significantly beat anywhere in New Orleans. Rochefort 10: $6. Green Flash 4-packs: $8.50. The famed Dead Guy growler for $10. Jolly Pumpkins for less than $14!!!

It really is good.

So glad I stopped in at the terrific store last week!

Thank you beer advocate for the Heads Up!

This store is terrific.

Selection is top notch for the MS & LA area. Tons of Mikkeller ( I crave some of their stouts on occasion).
Selection is large. Big coolers full of various brews that are ready to drink. Both bombers and six packs.

Nice selection of hard to find beers on shelves at room temperature.

Clean and very organized!

Got two bottles of Chipolte Porter - one of my favorite Mikkeller brews!

In the small yet overcrowded hamlet of Covington, Louisiana, lies a mom and pop supermarket with a special hidden room. The entrance to this room is painted in wine cellar trappings, to transport the shopper to another realm entirely.
For this is no ordinary room; its vast size is dominated by thousands of wine bottles standing on shelf after shelf in row after row of bubbly nectar goodness.
Move straight ahead, pilgrim, and you will find you heart's desire. On the back wall of this enchanted room sits a beer selection like no other. Kindly refrigerated behind magnificent doors, stand bottles of craft beer, hundreds upon hundreds, with prices so low, one might shake their head in amazement. Popular ales, stouts and pils alongside daring new temptations from far away beckon your indulgence.
Along the floor lie new arrivals, waiting to enter your shopping cart. On the far right, warm brews at eye-popping prices smile lovingly to be taken home.
Acquistapace's is a beer paradise disguised as a 1970's era grocery store. Enter from the left, go straight and discover a beer candy store unheard of in this region of the world.
Might want to ice it down for the trip home. But if you're close by, drive quickly and enjoy.
UPDATE 4/15/2012...Tried one of their overstuffed fried shrimp po-boys. Best po-boy I've ever eaten. A 12" costs 11.99 and worth every penny. Heavy, dressed, spicy and delicious. Don't leave without one!
