Not as organized as other Heinen's. The cold beer is kept an isle away from the shelf beers. You could easily miss one or the other.

The selection is not bad for a grocery store, but not even close to what I expect from a Heinen's. They do offer something for everyone; just no rare stuff here.

Service wasn't good either. The staff was more focused on the wine customers. They seemed bothered when I asked a beer question, but they were going head over heels for their wine customers. Oh well there are plenty of other great places in the area to score a good beer. I wont be back to this location.

Pretty good offering for a grocery store here. I was told before my trip to Cleveland that I would not be able to find Goose Island in Ohio, so I was surprised whan I found the GI IPA and Stout when I first arrived sold as singles. This store represented the local beers pretty well. They had about 7 different kinds if Great Lakes and a variety 12 pack, as well as 3 kinds of Hoppin Frogs. Prices seemed to be cheaper than what I'm used to paying in South Carolina. I paid $8.99 for a 22 0z. BORIS the Crusher and $1.99 each for the Goose Island singles. Also saw Ballast Points, Stone, Bells, and Dogfish head on the shelves. Decent selection of Belgiums and Imports as well.

This Heinen's is located at the end of Detroit in Rocky River and it's on the corner of Detroit and Wooster Rd. It's not too far from Rocky River Brewing Co. From Heinen's you see the bridge over the Rocky River and it's also the bridge to Lakewood. It's surrounded by small shops and a tiny mall type place across the street. A Caribou coffee house and a business building is front of Heinen's. It's in the style of most of the Heinen's I've been to, but what separates this one, is the fact that it's a lot smaller. Sometimes it's hard to maneuver around the aisles, especially when you have a cart. They need to expand, but I don't think they have the room for it. The beer is located near the bakery and a small island of deli food. They keep some of their six packs and bombers in an open refrigerator. Behind that on room temperature shelves is where they keep the rest of their six packs and 12 packs. At the end of the refrigerator and the room temp. shelves was a display where they displayed all of their fall seasonal bombers, 6 and 12 packs.

The service here is the same as all of the other Heinen's stores. They do put you grocery items in your car, but if you want some help with the beer you have to go to the customer service station and ask for somebody. If you have the time to wait, then you can do that. I don't know if it would be worth the wait though.

The selection here is like most of the other Heinen's, but with a few surprises here and there. In the refrigerator aisle that's where they keep the Stone Brewing Bombers, Great Lakes and their seasonal six and 12 packs, New Holland Dragon's Milk bombers, Triple Karmeliet, a couple varieties of Ommegang, Avery's Hog Heaven, Moylan's Kilt Lifter, Dead Guy Ale Bombers, Celis White, a couple varieties of Lindeman's 750s and a little more that I don't remember. On the display they had New Holland's fall seasonal, Southampton's Pumpkin Ale, and a couple more Pumpkin beers. They might change their seasonal display when the seasons change. On the room temp shelves they had Tommy Knocker variety 12 pack, Duvel, Sierra Nevada, Bar Harbor, 2 to 3 varieties Brooklyn Brewery and Bell's six packs and a big surprise at the end, 750s of AleSmith's Speedway Stout. Not many Heinen's carries the Speedway Stout. I always thought that Heinen's prices are better than the prices they have at local liquor stores. This would make a nice little stop if you feel like going a little out of your way coming or going from Rocky River Brewing Co.
