Upon first discovery of John's grocery I was blown away by their whisky selection. Definitely one of the best in the area, if not in eastern Iowa. Some good stuff like George T. Stagg from the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection and Pappy 20 year old, at affordable prices.

It wasn't until a few weeks later that I really started getting into their beer selection. I realized it was grand, but I did not realize the selection. From J.W. Lees, to a great selection of Flanders style sours, and some decent American Craft brews. Most of the collection is based around Belgian style ales.

One of the best selections of Nogne I have seen, and the take great pride in things like that. Anyone between Chicago and Lincoln, NE should take the trip to Johns Grocery in Iowa City to check out the selection at this small corner grocery store.

It's a little cramped, but it has a good selection and you are going to get decent service. Definitely worth going to if you are in the area.

Have stopped in here quite a few times on road trips and always found something worthwhile. Reasonable prices, great selection, plus the added convenience of other items... including glassware. Heck, they've sent stuff to me out of state as well (glassware). Love this place. Faithful customer when driving through.
