Found this place while driving around and it sounded interesting so i stopped in. Apparently they opened recenetly because the had a "Now Open" sign on the front of the building.

Inside there is all kinda of different things, but most importantly a good selection of beer. All the beer is located on a shelf in the back left corner near the wine. Selection includes DFH 90min and Au Courant....Mojo IPA....4 or 5 things from unibroue....SN pale ale, stout, and porter...chimay...paunlaner...franziskaner...and more that i cant remember.

They also had sample packs that they put together for really reasonable prices...the "summer styles" 10pack was on sale for only 5.99! They also had just about everything available in six packs as singles for 1.49 each.

UPDATE: Across the parking lot a place called Total Wine just opened up and they has a far better selection.

World Market, in the same plaza as Total Wine & More.

Has a limited selection of craft beer. I would say about two shelves worth + a descent selection of bombers on one shelf. The only thing is half of the bottles have no freshness dates/unreadable.

Selections off the top of my head include: Chimay, Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, Great Divide, Lindemans, Samuel Smith, Fort Collins, Cigar City, etc..

The plus to this place is the glassware. They have some snifters, oversized wine glasses, pint glasses + brewery logo pint glases, and more.

For the area, not a bad place. Being right next to Total Wine & More though undoubtedly hurts them.

I stopped by World Market recently to check out their beer selection. The selection was minimal but what they did have was not bad. World Market is not a beer store by any means but more of a home furnishings store that happens to carry a good amount of wine and a small beer selection. The prices seemed pretty reasonable but many beers they had on the shelves were past their best before dates which is a big problem for me. With Total Wine and More in the same parking lot, I can't seem to think of a reason I'd ever return unless I was buying glassware. They do sell nonic pint glasses which I purchased while I was there.

Well I was excited when they opened a few years ago, mainly for the food, Grandm misses Germany and we were hoping this would bring some of the food in for her which it did, but enough of that. Selction is alright, not many micors as has been said, but you can definaly get alot of the imports there which is great. I am sure this is probably hurting them some with Total Wine right there, but they were the first to have some of the German imports in town. Great place again for the food and weird little international stuff, but not so great for beer.

This store has a wide variety of more unique foods and drink. Kinda like a small/medium grocery store with an emphesis on fresh , natural , worldwide products. The beer is to the left once you enter the store. Most of it is in an open refrigerator , with some stacked nearby. They sell a fair amount of beers from places like Germany , Poland , Mexico , Asia , selection is more on the import side. Not to many micro brews. They also sell pre-packaged sampler packs for a pretty good price ( 6 0r 8 bucks). I should tell you though , there is a store called Total Wine right accross the street that has all these beers and about 300 more , and for less money. But if you happen to stop in here for food ( world market) , you won't be dissapointed with they're beer selection.
