I could pretty much say the same thing about the 'teet as I do about the local Whole Foods; the differentiator is the selection at Harris Teeter has a much broader range. They have the space and they use it very well.

Big national craft names (including Green Flash even!), lots of locals and some different stuff you don't see too often in New England (Bluegrass, for example). Well-executed plan. There's some stuff in there that you probably don't need to sample but overall it looks like they are decent offerings.

At grocery stores I don't even contemplate service. No surprise here.

Selection as mentioned above is pretty wicked large. Again, it's a treat to buy beer while shopping for groceries.

Prices are in line with local norms - maybe a little heavier than others but only by a case quarter or so. Very well-done for a megamart.

Located in the monstrosity that is the Barracks Road shopping center right off of Rt. 29--on the southern end of the shopping center. Parking can be a pain in this mega-lot, but there's always something. Has probably the best grocery store beer selection in town--they have plenty of Starr Hill, Dogfish Head, Bells, etc. and get in things like Brooklyn BCS and Allagash as well, to name a few--but they are not likely to have anything really special. They're also a bit pricey--but convenient. And they're open later than most places that sell craft brews.

Located in the Barracks Road shopping center, near the south end. Not far from JPJ Arena, off the UVA campus.

Very good selection for a grocery store. Has surpased WF in selection, but the specialty stores still have HT beat.

Beer section is in the far right front of the store. Several coolers and 2 shelf areas showcase a lot of beer. Southern Tier, Blue Mtn, Legend all featured.

Did not see anything that I could not get at the specialty stores, but worth a trip if you have to hit the grocery.

I really could not believe this store. The selection was basically just ridiculous for a grocery store. We stopped in here late at night to grab some beers and I was expecting a decent selection...hoping for maybe 10 varieties of craft brews... We were pleasantly surprised with at least three full aisles of just craft beer (refrigerated)...not to mention a huge walk-in cooler of 24 packs and things like that. It's safe to assume that they carry almost every brewery that's distributed in the area...really impressive. I've never seen anything like this. Especially not in a grocery store. There are some specialty stores that don't have this great of a selection.

Better than the other grocery stores in town, though nothing compared with the dedicated wine and beer stores in town. It has a nice selection of national and regional brews, including excellent West Coast choices like Stones and Green Flash, and a a few good Virginia selections like Blue Mountain, Legacy and Olde Richmond. The downside is that the selection hardly ever changes, so you can run through your excellent choices fairly quickly. And they are none too shy about charging apremium for their beer. Still, if you want good choices in a hurry, this is a good place to go. And of course, it has as good a selection of the mass market stuff as anyone in the area.

It certainly does not carry the selection of some other locations, nor should it be expected to, considering it's not a beer store.

That said, Teeter has impressed me for both their beer and wine selection - and not only at this specific location in the city, though it is perhaps the most visited of them all. They seem to pride themselves in carrying a finer selection, though I haven't been in to really look around in some time now.

Selection is kept nice and cool, and brews are treated much better than a typical supermarket may care for them. Particularly convenient if wanting to pick up a better quality drink with groceries (which tend to be on the finer side, as well).

This of course is not a beer store but a supermarket that has a great beer selection. All the beer is kept in proper coolers and the higher end of the scale is in enclosed coolers. The selection is good with alot of local beer available but also some from the other end of the country like Stone and Sierra Nevada, Belgians and british beer are there too.
None of the beer appeared to be old or too dusty so the shelf life is probably not a problem.
The staff was very friendly and helpful and the price was reasonable on most of the selection though on some items it was abit higher than other places but not too bad.
