Your not going to find anything to special about this place besides one fact. For its location, and what is around, I would say this place has the best beer selection on Mt.Hood. While it is a regular grocery store (chain store smaller but similar to Safeway), the owner has a knack for craft beer and does a fairly good job getting locals local brew. Your not going to find your "hard to get" beers here, but if you are in the area and are in need of good beer, this is your best option. I have found some gems from time to time here, Some times they throw some Goose Island beers up to see how they do. Pretty good selection of Bombers.

While this is officially a grocery store it has a really good selection of craft beers from the area.

Q: Big area for beer and 99% of it was in coolers. They let you mix and match 6 packs or purchase singles. Everything seemed to be fresh and well away from the BBD.

S: Its a grocery store first and foremost. Not going to have the most knowledgeable people there. I did happen to find one person that really new what they were selling.

SE: Carries the major brews and seasonals from local craft breweries and some from other states. The best part is the lack of budweiser products. Had a discontinued shelf of things out of season or not selling well.

V: Everything was on sale when I was there and really cheap. The regular prices weren't to bad for local craft beers.
