This was a very impressive find in this very small town.
Yes, they do not know a lot about beer, but are very very courteous, and even helped me load my trunk after finding a lot of unexpected good beers.
A lot of americans, including Great Lakes, Left Hand, Flying Dog, Ommegang and others, plus an impressive selection of imports including Achel, Fuller's Vintage Ale, Corsendonk, a lot of different lambics, saisons and many others options.
Price was quite reasonable, and for some beers, better than any other places (Ommegangs were a lot cheaper than the average).

Main Street Market was a surprisingly great beer shop, with the best selection in Door County and it's not even close.

On par with a Woodmans though much smaller. Plenty of parking in the lot behind the store. Extensive beer selection on warm shelves toward the back of the store. Cases of New Glarus Thumbprint series stacked up, plenty of current WI seasonals to be had as well. Surprised to see Lake Louie this far north. All of the Wisconsin beers had a dedicated corner area, which was a good idea to emphasize local representation. Lots of 750s and bombers, a few Belgians but not overly extensive on imports. There was a reach-in cooler on the right side, but again the majority of the selection was on the warm shelves. They even had some varieties of White Winter mead.

Deli counter had some assorted homemade items and a good meat selection. Pints of Door Co. cherries were displayed up front. Cashiers were friendly and the place had a great small town charm to it.

I remember when the field this place is built on was an overgrown and dying orchard. Never really was a fan of Main Street Market, I always liked the small general store across the road that is now long gone.

Imagine my surprise when I returned after years of being away from home. Thirsty looking for a beer that wasn't Miller Lite or Bud and find everything I had heard was happening in the Wisconsin Craft scene and even some of my favorites from Colorado and further West! They also had an impressive wine and spirits selection, so my wife was triple happy.... Is it possible that she was happier than me?

Go here and check them out!

Saw this place in the beerfly and figured I'd give it a look.

Typical small grocery store look and feel. About a 15 foot aisle three tiers high with a solid selection of craft bottle fropm all over the place. Including some decent imports. Thet had what looked like a very weak attempt at a mix singles section. Maybe 10-12 bottle total. Nice try.

I didn't encounter anyone who worked there so I can't really comment on that aspect.

Prices were a touch high but what price isn't jacked up in the "hamptons of the midwest"

Probably the largest craft selection I've seen in Door County. So if you need a fix and want a decent selection this is your spot.

If you are visiting Door County on vacation and need a beer fix, this is a great place. They carry New Glarus, Sprecher, Central Waters, Lakefront, Capital and Bells to name just a small sample. All the big imports are represented too including a nice area of Belgians. I didn't need any service help but the people working in the store seemed friendly. Prices on some beers are in line, others higher than you'd expect to pay. Given that Door Country is a summertime tourist haven, I really couldn't complain.

Best spot I found in Door County to pick up a good variety of brews. Being from New England, I was interested in grabbing some MW beers I can't typically get back home - left with a New Glarus variety pack, Bell Brewing, and Capitol Brewing. Lots of Leinenkugels there too. Decent selection of imports/Belgians/Brits but admitedly I wasn't looking at them too closely.

They have a mix a six section, but the selection was pretty dicey. I looked quickly, but couldn't come up with a set of six beers I wanted.

Staff very friendly and helpful. They carry the beer out to your car for you.

If you are in town for a week, definitely make a stop so you can fill your place with some quality MW brews.

Well after seeing some of the glowing reviews I decided to check this place out on my last trip to Door County and I was disappointed.

I entered through the main street door which is actually the back, there is a little area of macros, this dampens my spirits, I soon find the craft and import aisle but it's tiny. The top shelf has some Belgians (Chimay, Westmalle, Corsendonk Apple, La Chouffe) 2 Unibroues (not the entire selection), and some US bombers, 120 minute ipa, a few regionals, some import 6ers, and a few german pints but theres nothign really here that you cant find anywhere else, I was expecting some rarer Scandinavian or Belgian brews but nothing. It didn't even have stuff from the brewery across the street, luckily i found that at a road stand. The store is nice, and has a nice deli, bakery, and wine area, too bad I'm not into wine.

The employees here will always help you carry your stuff to your car.

Overall it is a good stop in the Door County area to get some good crafts to camp with at not too touristy prices but nothing too special.

probably the best stop for brews in Door County, but still short of a great stop overall. The section is buried in the back of the store with a bit in coolers up front.

A decent selection of micros from Wisconsin and the Midwest, along with a few imports, some single bottles and some six packs.

all the merchandise was clean and fresh looking, without any dust or old looking labels. prices are pretty standard, with some markups on the imported pints.

worth a stop for vacationers and on day trips, but nothing here that can not be found elsewhere outside of Door County.

Awesome store, especially for out of the way Door County. Tons of craft brews from all states and lots of imports, particularly Belgians are available. This market is about half booze so it’s a pretty fun place to shop in general but there really are great beers scattered everywhere. I was picking out some artisan cheeses in the deli and found a random stash of Orval. Then I was looking at some Gatorade (in preparation for the following morning) and found a load of sixers from Great Lakes. I kept finding beer all over the place - to the point where I didn’t think they had an actual beer section. I was wrong. They do have a beer section and its huge, although not as large or impressive as their wine department (world class). I didn’t talk to any staff who knew about beer but their buyer sure does. The staff who were present were all young, eastern European/Turkish, female, and cute so I couldn’t complain. Highly recommended. Prices are a bit high but it's Door County.
