Can't really add much more to what BradyBeer (who seems intent on covering the entire Santa Cruz beer scene single handedly) said previously. While Shopper's Corner has a pretty good beer selection (and actually a pretty stellar wine selection), it's really just an afterthought at this unique to Santa Cruz institution. The store itself is just fabulous and is a place I always visit whenever I'm in The Cruz. I really love the emphasis on local products here (incredible baked goods selection), and the butcher shop in the back can't be beat.

As noted above, the beer selection is decent, but Shopper's is hardly a destination for beer. I'm usually here to pick up some ingredients for a weekend meal, and along the way I'll pick up some local wine and whatever looks interesting in the beer cold box. Service here is fine for what it is, but remember this is a grocery store, so you'll probably need to try to flag someone down if you need assistance with your beer selection.

All that being said, this is a must stop for anyone visiting Santa Cruz. The place has been around forever and has the look and feel of an old style store. The place just exudes charm IMO, and their cheese, bread, meat, fish and produce selection is the best I can think of in Santa Cruz. You won't be unhappy with the beer and wine selection here either. Cheers!

Shopper's Corner is a small grocery store that has been in SC for 50 plus years and has a very loyal following because of their high quality beer, wine, and food selection.

Located a mile out of downtown SC Shopper's Corner has about 35-45 beer (no mega brewers) choices at a given time.
In bombers they have:
3 SC Mountain
3 Seabright
1 Mendocino
3 Laguanitas
2-3 Moylan's

In sixers they have:
3-4 Anchor
2-3 North Coast
2-3 Laguanitas
2-3 Mendocino
3 Anderson Valley

They also have a small selection of U.K beers such as Youngs and 1/2 dozen Belgium choices.

Prices are in line with SC-that is to say higher than BevMO-however, if you need some great brew and some fixin's for a nice feed this is the place
