I stopped in at Huckleberry's when I was in Spokane recently to pick up some beer for a family gathering. I was rather impressed by the beer selection of this natural-foods grocery store.
The selection and quality were both quite good, with a fair number of imports and quite a few regional brews. There were a lot of large-format bottles and other singles available, which I always like to see in a grocery store. Prices were quite reasonable.
Atmosphere and service were both good, for a grocery store, but basically what you'd expect. In all, if I have to shop for beer at a grocery store in Spokane, Huckleberry's will be my go-to place from now on.

Quality - Plenty of great beers from all over the US. This is also a great place to get Belgian offerings and the only place that seems to consistently have Orval available.
Service - Meh. It's a grocery store with typical grocery store service.
Selection - Great selection here. It's a can't miss for anyone looking for the latest releases. They let you put together mixed six-packs and have more of the craft cans than anyone else.
Value - Individual 12oz are a bit pricey but overall about what you'd expect to pay for better beer.
I'm also happy that they refrigerate pretty much everything. I like to age beer but I don't want it aged at room temp.

I was in town briefly and asked the best store for beer selection and both people I asked said Huckleberry's.
This reminded me of a place in Asheville, NC.
GREAT selection, and the NW was represented VERY well with breweries I had never heard of. Great micro/craft selection. Imports from Belgium and other parts of Europe were easily found. Since I was travelling I had to be selective of the bombers I chose so I got a Snoqualmie Hefe for the wife and I grabbed an Iron Horse Hoppy Red. Caldera cans were marked down so I grabbed a few of those. They were running specials on other singles and to see bombers of Stone/Avery/Rogue and others at much cheaper prices than back home is always a treat. It was early in the day and I did not need much help but the check person was very friendly.

Best beer selection by far I've found when I'm in Spokane. For my tastes there seemed to be an excess of belgium types, but since I haven't had one yet I liked it doesn't take very many to over do it for me personally. I just wish they had a few more lagers, bocks Ipa's and stouts. I'll go back the next time I'm beer shopping in Spokane for sure. The place was clean and well organized and the employees helpful in checking for stock out back.They also have a good selection of fresh produce and natural foods. The wine selection (for my wife) impressed her as well.

The atmosphere is nice. Its a clean, well lit, pleasing, upscale grocery store. A lot of fresh food around gives you a nice feeling.
The quality of goods appears to be quite good. As I said its an upscale grocery store. I paid most of my attention to the beer section and it is mostly regional craft brews, some I had never heard of. I did spot some Bud in one corner of the cooler, but the macros (American ones anyway) were largely absent. All the beer is in a cooler, no room temperature strorage that I saw.
Service was good. I was approached by a clerk and asked if I needed help with anything. They were content to let me browse the beer section unmolested which I like.
I thought the selection was excellent. They had over 500 different labels. Most of the beers were regional craft brews, with a few east coast selections and some European labels.
Value: I think I got good value from Huckleberrys. I bought 12 beers for tasting and got away for less than $17. Most of the beers were priced in the $1.09 - $1.29 range. Mixing and matching six packs is also allowed/encouraged, and they check you out by the bottle.
I dont have much occasion to visit the neighborhood where Huckleberrys is located, but Ill try to find more occasions. There are a lot of beers in there for me to try.

This is one of the best places to buy beer in the Spokane area. Hucklebery's is a "natural market" operated by Rosauer's, a local grocery chain. Their main focus is all sorts of organic food options, thoough they also have a large wine selection, a bistro and, to the back of the store, a large (for Spokane) selection of bottled beers.
While the beers are priced as one would expect, groceries here tend to be a little expensive. Their clientele is primarily people went from hippies to yuppies, aliong with neo-hippies who've yet to admit they sold out.I just buy beer, bread and cheese here, and do the bulk of my grocery shopping at the Rosauer's just up the street. The selection of around 100 or so beers is slightly more than half micro (with an emphasis on NW beers) with the remainder imported. For someone used to Bottleworks or Liquid Solutions, this place would be a letdown, but it's one of my two main beer stores in the area. The staff are friendly, but the people working the alcohol section are primarily versed in wine, so remember that before you ask whether they ever get in ___ . The nicest feature about this place (for me) is that I live about 6 blocks away.
