'S Ok, but nothing more. A scattering of not-bad offerings - a little Rogue, a little Stone, the odd Flying Dog and Sam Smith-type imports, maybe the occasional watermelon beer in a can. I can't decide whether the selection is poorly thought out or is intentionally scattered as a sign of how eclectic the store is generally, but it doesn't make a whole lot of sense as a collection of beer. Still, if you you happen to be in Best Buy next door and can't be bothered to zip a little way up Route 29 to the Wine Warehouse or Market Street Wine Shop, then World Market will do in a pinch. And you can pick up some strange decorative items while you're at it.

Ah, World Market. Not exactly the go-to place for beer, but they do have some interesting offerings. I have come across some reasonable selections of German, American, and Belgian brews here.

It's not extraordinary in terms of competing with the Wine/Beer stores, but it certainly holds its own against grocery stores and it carries a decent selection of glassware at reasonable prices to boot.

They also tend to have their seasonal packages available for at least summer / winter seasons... and then they'll sometimes have things like "Beers of the World" Typically, not beers that would blow someone away, but there can be some decent gems in there. Worth checking out!
