This is one of several Heinen's that I have been to. I used to go to this one in University Heights when I lived in Cleveland Heights. Frankly I did not buy much beer at that time but I returned recently to observe what they had and to pick up some beer (of course). Heinen's has a reputation around here (there are something like 10-15 of them in Northeast Ohio) of being kind of a higher class grocery store. Their food is quite good with emphasis on organic stuff (long before it became so popular) and higher level meats, deli, bakery. There are "valets" which meet you at the door on your way out. You go get your car and then they pack all of your groceries in your cart while you remain in the car. They might be known more for their wine selection as opposed to their beer selection as it is considerable. On to the beer.

Quality. Good as everything is displayed in a clean, organized manner. Some bottles are room temperature and some are in those open type of fridges common in grocery stores.

Service. Just fine. I only spoke to one person while at Heinen's about the beer and he was minimally helpful like I would expect him to be. They have wine tastings at Heinen's but I have not seen or heard about any beer tastings. Service, therefore, is average in my opinion. Nice folks and everything but nothing remarkably special.

Selection. This is where Heinen's shines. Bottles, bombers from Brooklyn (well represented), Victory (Storm King, Pils, Golden Monkey), Avery, Rogues, Gulden Draak, Piraat, Great Lakes (well represented), Troegs, Southern Tier, Stone, Lagunitas, some BMC but really only about 10% of the total, Bell's, New Holland, Ommegang (well represented), Traquair Jacobite, and many, many more that I cannot recall.

Value. Just fine and reasonable. I can remember a Gulden Draak Bomber for 9.99 and the Ommegang 750 ml were 5.99.

Notes: Overall a nice place and an unexpected source of some good beer at reasonable prices presented very nicely. They certainly respect beer.
