Was out in the area for work and decided to stop in the Pub at Wegmans and see what they had to offer.

The Pub is located within the supermarket and it a relatively small space. There are about four aisles of beer and coolers around the outside on the area.

The selection is pretty good. It's divided geographically, but someone should probably get the good folks at Wegmans an atlas since they have Ommegang in their Belgium section. There were lots of the standard PA micros (Sly Fox, Troegs, Victory, etc) and a decent selection of other micros (heavy on Rogue, some Stone, Russian River, etc.

They were also touting Christmas beers heavily with a few displays.

The selection isn't going to blow away most BA members, but it's a decent enough spot. I walked away with a Russian River Damnation, a Stone 14th Anniversary Emperial Ale, and a Fegley's BrewWorks Scotch Ale all for $20. Not bad in my opinion.

If I'm in the area again, I'll be sure to stop by.

The Malvern store is a little far for me to go, but my wife's boss told her that she had to check out the architecture regarding the way they set up their dining area (the "lodge"-like area), so OK, off we went. (NOTE TO BOSS: it's the same in all of the locations; and, honestly, it's not that spectacular).

They've got a very good beer selection but you won't find anything crazy - it's a big market, not a specialty beer store. They've got plenty of room temperature bottles, six-packs, and even cases; as well as a wide variety of cold six-packs and about 12 feet of single bottle shelving to choose from. They offer a mix your own six-pack for $11.99, and the selection is usually pretty good. I should note, however, that most of what they sell is domestic - you're not going to find a lot of Belgians here, or much of anything from the rest of the world either. The saving grace to that is that the prices are pretty good. In comparison to my local specialty beer shop Wegmans is a steal!

Service for me doesn't matter, but unfortunately for anyone looking for it, this is where Wegmans fails. Unless someone who works with the beer just happens to be there you're completely out of luck with special questions or requests, and to be honest, even at that point you'll probably know more than they do. Make contact with them, however, and the "beer guys" will do whatever they can to help you out. Just inquire at customer service and they'll put you in touch.

As they offer food, I should also mention that the Malvern store has a little "bar" area and "restaurant" to it that the other locations don't. There's a menu and you can order food there, but they also have the buffet set-up that the other stores have as well where you can buy many different types of food for $8.99 per pound.

Compared to some of the other Wegmans beer sections I have been to this one quite comparable. Lots of beers from the big boys, both micro and macro, as well as a decent selection of the more widely distributed european offerings.

Atmosphere is what you would expect from a super market bottle shop. Quality is pretty good but nothing to really write home about. Service is just like the others, you may get asked if you need help, you may not. Selection is just like all of the other Wegmans I have been to, nothing too rare but lots of solid craft offerings for a quick pickup.

Overall a decent place to stop if you are in the area, just don't expect some super rare bottles to just be sitting on the shelves.

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.

In town on business and glad I can get a few quality beers for the hotel without having to pay way too much and I certainly can't buy a case for a 2 day visit.

Selection was decent, although I was really there for the singles. Unfortunately I couldn't get 6 that I hadn't tried or that I really liked. It looked like the single area was in need of restocking.

I ended up with a sixer of Ithaca Flower Power which made the trip worthwhile. I wanted to try this beer since it's often mentioned in the good IPA threads and I can't get it at home.

The bar/eat in area looked nice, but I wasn't there to stay. I'm glad there are now some places you can get smaller quantities of good beer in PA without having to go to a bar.

Man..I Love Wegmans. We go there often for lunch as its close to my work office. I have been to Collegeville and Downingtown Wegmans, and the Malvern has the best beer selection by far in my opinion. The prices are fantastic and the mix six pack selection is very good. Great for extras if your into trading. Food is fantastic as well and prices are comparable to any other fine eatery. Check out one of there Burritos for 6$. Its huge! Sushi and sandwhiches are very good as well. There is a brew pub there as well and I believe they do growler fills. Its tough to go to any other food store once you've been to a Wegmans. I wish I lived near one.

On my most recent visit to the Philadelphia area I stopped into Wegmans malvern to take a look around. Now coming from Southern Virginia we don't have Wegmans so i was blown away by the selections they had at the store. It was the beer selection that really caught my eye. Plenty of world and local micros to choose from. At just 11 bucks for a sixer and given the quality beers to choose from I was very impressed. They also offered Wine by the Glass in the stores eatery and had some very upscale menu items for non upscale prices. I will do what I can to visit there again on my next trip to PA.

A great place to stop for beer or for a snack or small meal before or after shopping.

The atmosphere is nothing special, rather cold and inoffensive, nothing here makes you think you are anywhere other than a grocery store.

Beer selection is very nice, nothing to blow you away but there is always plenty to choose from. Similarly, there is a six tap system for growlers or pints with a reasonable selection but nothing special.

Food is really good considering, especially in the pub area but really you can;t go wrong. And when you can have a $4 bottle of Duvel with your selection, everything seems right with the world.
