Wegmans in Collegeville is pretty much the same as all of the other stores in the area (King of Prussia, Malvern, etc). The set-up is the same, the look is the same, and the beers are pretty much the same (although each location is slightly different). Around the perimeter of the area are the coolers, mainly holding six-packs but with a good amount of space for large bottles, and a 4' foot section of 12 oz. bottles for the "Make Your Own Six-pack" display. The majority of the beer is domestic so you'll only find pretty basic imports. They're good about bringing in seasonal items though, and it seems as if they're continually changing things up at least a little bit. If I'm not mistaken there are only a dozen or so beers that are always there (Foster's Oil cans, the tall Sapporo can, etc). They don't gouge you on pricing like some of the smaller specialty shops, but you should be aware of what you're grabbing if you're mixing a six-pack because at $11.99 that's $2 a beer. Overall it's certainly worth checking out if you're in the area.

I stop here quite frequently to pick up a 6 pack or a few bombers.
Usually a great selection of beers. Some hard to find and some local favorites. Always seem to have Founders BS and a good selection of Victory beers. Some occasional rarieties like Port's Older Viscosity and just recently had 2 different AleSmith's, WeeHeavy and HornyDevil.
Overall if you are looking for a nice selection of 6 and 4 packs or a nice selection of bombers, this Wegmans is the place to go. Can always find something here to satisfy!

Well, I reviewed Downingtown and Malvern, so might as well do this one, too since its identical to Malvern.
A - Its a grocery store with a "pub" in it. Nice concept, but provides a rather stale atmosphere while sitting at the bar.
Q/S/S - Their food and beer selection is all good quality, and a step up from the Downingtown location. Similar to other Wegman's in the area, they don't get any of the super limited release stuff, but they do have a great selection from American and world wide breweries. Service leaves something to be desired. They usually have some grunt stocking the shelves that never seem to know anything about the beers or recent shipments, but I like how they are always eager to help you out, and willing to check the stock room for you.
Overall, its a nice store with a good selection. Better then the Downingtown location since it has a huge refrigerated section, wider aisles, and a pub. The food at the bar is average at best.

I knew there was a Wegmans in Collegeville. I was visiting my girlfriend this weekend, and we decided to go to pick up some food for the weekend...of course, I ran into the beer shop, and my mind was blown.
Much bigger than the selection in both Mechanicsburg and Downington, and the selection was much more diverse too. They had a couple of the large format SA bottles which I was looking for, some Breakfast Stout, a full selection of Sixpoint....just tons and tons of beer from all across the country, at reasonable prices. We went back the next day just to see if they restocked, and they did, netting me some Infinium (yay, even if it is awful!) and Blackout Stout.
I wasn't approached by any employees, but the staff members who rang me out were very helpful. They also have a pub that does growler fills, though I didn't explore this at all. As for food, they have a lot of prepared food that you can eat (as well as drink your new beer) on the premises. Always very tasty. Definitely worth a stop every time I'm in town from here on out.

Stopped in on my way up 422 to a family get together. Having been to the Wegman's Pub in Malvern, I was familiar with the concept. The setup was similar to the Malvern location as was the selection.
The biggest bonus of visiting on a Saturday was that a representative of the nearby Sly Fox Brewery was on hand sampling their products. There was a sign in the pub that showed that there are often events and tastings on Saturday afternoons, so that would be a good time to visit.
I walked out with bottles of SN Celebration, Sly Fox Christmas Ale, Fuller's 2010 Vintage Ale and a six pack of Great Lakes Christmas Ale. Not a bad haul for a quick visit. All in all, Wegman's provides a nice selection of craft beers at reasonable prices. I'll stop in every time I'm in the area.
