Quality food stop, kinda felt like a food coop as it has a general "crunchy" feel to it...fine with me...loads of food options, impressive meat dept in the rear...beer is in the cooler to the right as you enter and in a large shelving unit near by...worthy spot for tasty craft options...pick up some healthy food while you visit

This is more of a natural organic foods grocery with a section for beer and wine, but there is still an impressive selection.

This is a great grocery store. The beer and wine selection is very good. Check out their meat offerings. Really quality stuff.

Kingma's is an old world style market. A meat counter, produce, a garden center, and oh did I mention beer? There's a fair sized cool near the door, and a longish row of local/craft/imports a little farther down. I do not recall seeing a single BMC on the premises. I was particularly impressed with the Barley Wine selection. There were even signs up referring to the ability to cellar this variety of beer. They had, at the time of review, Stone's "Old Guardian" Barley Wine in three vintages at the same price for you to try: '08, '09, & '10. The cashier was nice, but not a single person asked if I needed anything during the ~20 minuets I was standing there. It is, however, a grocery store so I did not hold that against them...

I've seen cheaper places, and easier to find, but if you in the area, it is certainly worth a look!
