For a grocery store, the craft beer selection is phenomenal. Two large aisles, a couple of fridges, and a double-sided rack of mostly American micros, with a very respectable range of beers from Belgium, Germany, and the UK.

Sierra Nevada (Bigfoot, Torpedo), Great Lakes (Burning River, Elliot Ness), Stone (Ruination, IPA), Victory (HopDevil, Prima Pils), and Rogue (Mocha Porter, Brutal IPA) are particularly well-represented. Lots of bombers from St. Bernardus and Brouwerij Huyghe as well. I grabbed a six pack of Edmund Fitzgerald Porter for $8.99.

Service is average since this is a large chain, minimum wage grocery store. But I found a cheap sixer of world class beer and a shaker glass to drink it with, so I'm not complaining.

Certainly a spot to consider if you happen to be in Niagara Falls, or passing through to Buffalo (like we were). Recommended.

When I read on BA that Wegman's stores carried craft beer, I decided to stop by this location since I regularly stop at the Consumer's Beverage that is just around the corner.

I was not expecting to see the huge aisle of craft beer that was hidden in the back corner of this grocery store. Their selection was amazing, inlcuding most of the brands that are found at Consumer's Beverage and many that aren't. They also had a big supply of the recently released Troegs Nugget Nectar, which I was happy to find. Brands that they carry include Sierra Nevada, Great Lakes, Troeg's, Victory, Otter Creek, DFH, Lagunitas, Stone and a good selection of European beer too.

They also had a decent selection of bombers, inlcuding many Stone products.

Overall, the selection was only a little less than Consumer's but the variety was somewhat different. This has definitely become a staple stop for me on any trips through Niagara Falls.
