Small beer selection in a grocery store. So, grocery store vibe ... Quality was pretty bad - the toppling goliath IPA bombers were five months old. Most of the IPAs were pretty darn old. Service was non existent. Selection was awful for craft - most of the "craft" was just macro brands. No reason to stop here if you are looking for anything other than macros.

Disclaimer: Review is of the grocery store currently listed at 2200 West Kimberley, not the "off-site liquor store" at 3301 West Kimberley, which was never listed here (correction submitted).

Typically average grocery store beer selection.

The only good thing about this place was the modest mix-a-six selection of singles, and even those were a little dusty in places. Otherwise there was a meager grouping of 10 or so breweries in the cooler, full lines from Leinies, Point, Schells, Shiner, etc. Macros and Four Loco filled a singles area in the cooler instead of craft bombers (none at all, or imports other than macros: Sol, Tecate, Becks, etc). Did notice 4-packs of Goose Island Sofie in the cooler, but that was more serendipity than anything intentional.

Singles were on the warm shelf in the back, and I struggled to find 6 out of 75 or so to make an $8.99 six pack. Settled on a Spaten Dunkel, O'Fallon Hemp Rye, Olde Main Wheat & Clone Ale, Schells Hopfenmalz, and Millstream Hefe (no other Millstream though). Pretty random and pedestrian selection. Checkout guy informed me that it was their policy (maybe state law?) to put a six pack in a plastic bag... a waste of plastic. Otherwise no one was around the liquor section at all.

Head down the road to the shop on East Kimberly for selection 3-4 times as big, or to the "off-site liquor store" at 3301 West Kimberley.
