If there is one good thing I can say about Trader Joe's it would have to be that there are some great food products. I honestly don't normally frequent it for any other reason aside from the aforementioned. I loves my fresh guacamole! That having been said this place certainly does cater to micros with the whole high quality merchandise mentality. There isn't much in the realm of selection though, but at least the price is good. If I happen to be in need of some cheap locals I can be sure that this is where I will go. I always like the choice of making a mix sixer. Not a bad place if you're shopping to pick up some beer, but as for wide selection I'd seek elsewhere.

Small beer department like most trader joes. The beer is in the left corner and along the left wall. A decent selection of 6ers, a few bombers and 750ml bottles, mostly Lindeman's and Chimay, etc. They have a few of their own label brands and some "interesting" NA beers. There are also some imports that are specifically sold here, like ALDI has.

Generally the prices for the beer is pretty cheap. IF you are looking for something common it might be better to check here before Binny's down the road.

They do have an "alcohol" person but they seemed more liek a wine person.

It is a grocery store with some beer, nothing more.

It's funny: I've been here a couple times, but I just today decided to really focus on the beer section. It's set to the side of the grocery store by a decent selection of wine. There's mostly sixers here, some from GI and Two Brothers (always nice to see the local boys getting some exposure), many from exclusive labels. This is where this place gets a bit of a boost from me, as these brews won't be found anywhere else 'round here. There's also a smattering of (mostly imported) bombers and a mix-a-sixer selection as well. The best part is the pricing: This is the first time I have ever felt comfortable using the single dollar sign. Most of the sixers run around 6-7 bucks, with the singles at .5-1. The bombers are understandably higher, but are either at or below the rates anywhere else 'round here. It's nice to have this place as an option in a relatively meager store population (though Binny's is friggin' fantastic...).
