Magruder's always has an excellent selection of craft beers, and they are careful to include a few limited-item selections. The prices are very reasonable. On a recent trip through, I saw a 4-pack of Palo Santo Marron for only $12.

The beer aisle is clean and very well organized, with the most interesting beers placed at the front of the store. Although the selection is not as extensive as you might get in a place that *really* focuses on beer, such as Rodman's, they have quality goods. Clearly, they would like to see the average beer drinker learn to be a bit more adventurous. (585 characters)

Rating Magruder's Supermarket in Germantown on an absolute scale, it comes in high for a supermarket and average for a beer store.

However, rating Magruder's Supermarket in Germantown on a curve, comparing it to liquor stores and supermarkets in Montgomery County, MD, it rates 4s and 5s all around.

It typically carries any of the crafts that are avaialable in MoCo like Flying Dog, Sierra Nevada, Old Dominion, Sam Adams, Troegs, Victory and some imports. One nice point is that it carries the seasonals from these breweries so you can count on picking up these one-offs. Also, lots of 12 packs, mixed and single-style.

McG's has a better beer selection than most county liquor stores.

Finally, it has a large refrigerated section, which is rare in this area. You can get a cold 12pack of SNPA or Sam Adams Noble Pils for around 14 bucks. That's a pretty good deal around here.

Also, I've found the service helpful. I've called for the beer/wine section to ask if certain beers were available and the manager was willing to check for me. (1,047 characters)
