I have been to this store on many occasions over the past couple of years, including today and their beer selection has grown from my first visit. They have the standard selection of craft and imports. They don't carry anything outside of the mainstream, but I did notice a couple of bombers of French Broad, but no Natty Greene's beers. They also had some Oktoberfest beers which was nice. Additionally, they have some singles which were about $1.89. This is not a place I would go to purchase beer specifically because it is a little out of my way, but they do have some pretty good prices and a better selection than one would expect. They do have a nice glassware selection ranging from pint glasses to mugs, some of which come from specific breweries. I love going to this store in general, but the beer selection is an added bonus.

I always find that places like World Market can often be a good place to pick up some interesting beers when you are not specifically out shopping for beer - and I enjoy the fact that I can peruse the beer while my wife/mother-in-law/etc. are looking at other things. There is a moderate sized section in the back corner of the store that is dedicated to beer and wine, so that is where I head when I'm shopping there.

Most of the styles of beer that I have purchased there have not been very date sensitive and I did not happen to check any of the date sensitive styles to see if they were in or out of code. It does seem like the beer sells pretty quickly as it is always different when I visit the store so I'm hoping that it means it is fresh.

Again as this is not a store dedicated to beer, the staff is generally not very knowledgeable but that is OK since they generally just let you shop and don't bother you. I have asked in the past to check if there were any more of beers in the stock room and they were happy to do that for me.

The beers that I can find there are often very interesting - I have found a couple of beers from countries that I do not frequently see (Lebanon) and some interesting finds that other local stores might have sold out. They sell singles at a generally very reasonable (if not slightly inexpensive) price.

No food.

Prices are generally good, sometimes on the low side which is a bonus.

Stopped in here the other day because I heard that they sold some decent beer. Wow! I had no idea this place was available to me all these years. In the back left corner of the store within the wine section, is this nice little oasis of great brews! They had a decent amount of bombers and even more selection on their 6-packs. A good variety of single brews all for $1.79 apiece, no matter the beer. That's a sixer for under $11. Not too bad. Beers all looked like they were fresh. I didn't see any dusty brews. Not sure if they rotate out regularily. Service was non-existent. Didn't get asked once if I needed help and the workers were all around me. That's how I prefer it though. I'm sure they weren't the most knowledgeable anyways.

I saw a good selection from breweries such as, Victory, Bell's, DFH, French Broad, SN, Kona, Samuel Smith's, Ommegang, Natty Greene's, Highland, etc. Some brews I haven't seen in any of the other beer stops I frequent. So it's definitely worth a stop.

One other thing that I though was cool was their glassware selection. They had a good amount of pints (labeled and unlabeled), weizens, pilsners, and even various sizes of snifters. I liked the hefty 22oz and may go back and get that one.

Good place. Recommend.
