While Z Market isn't exactly a high end craft beer store, it does carry a pretty solid selection of your well-known brews here in the South. A full range of 16 oz. Samuel Smiths and about 12 varieties of Rogue beers. Also carry a decent variety of 6-packs, from Sierra Nevada and Abita to Left Hand and Oskar Blues. Definitely not a beer enthusiast's kind of place, but provides pretty good options for a convenience store that are sure to satisfy a craft beer drinker's palate. A little bit overpriced, especially the individual 16 oz. brews, but overall a decent fall back if unable to get to Buster's or any of the top tier craft beer sellers in Memphis.

I was bummed out that this place did not do singles, although it appeared that they would consider it. I wanted Yazoo's Hop Project amongst my low ABV beers and they had it. I figured on going to Raffe's afterward because they did singles, but thankfully I did not wait on the Hop Project beer, as they did not have it. The price was reasonable for that six pack, although I found nothing else in the store I hadn't had or interesting. The selection was ok to good, and the service was excellent. This is worth a stop in the area for low ABV beers if you want it by the sixer, if not you may want to go to Raffe's.

A- About 12 coolers or so and cases in front of cooler. Pretty much a standard mini-mart type place near the university.
Q- Product is well taken care of it seems. No freshness or packaging issues.
Ser- Not particularly helpful, but friendly and generally knowledgable if you make the effort to ask them
Sel- About the same as Raffe's, but a couple seasonals I didn't see anywhere else. Flying dog, Samuel Smith's, North Coast, SN, Abita, Yazoo, DFH, and a few others.
Probably the cheapest place for craft beer that I have come across in Memphis. Definite recommendation for low-alcohol beer in Memphis.
