For a small local grocer, its bomber selecting decent. Does have 3Floyds from time to time.

vibe: 3.75 | quality: 3.75 | service: 3.25 | selection: 3.75

The atmosphere is that of a typical supermarket. An aisle shelf of warm beer facing an aisle of cooler beer. There is some wine and booze down a couple other aisles. The beer selection is much more craft centric, and larger, than your average supermarket. A handful of Pipeworks, Bells, limited release Goose, Founders, etc. The selection is pretty solid and there's a good amount of seasonal bombers from across the country.

The prices are fairly reasonable, about what you'll find in other area stores. There are some older releases, that sold out quickly other places, which is good for some beer (Velvet Merkin) and bad for others (Simcoe Ninja) so keep an eye on what you purchase. Service, as far as I can tell, is restricted to the cashiers, although I'd assume there's got to be a beer guy there at times. I do have a beef with this place that really bugged me on my last visit. They update their list on Beermenus often, as a matter of fact it was updated on the morning I most recently stopped in, but they don't carry half of what's on their updated list. They must add new items but never remove the sold out items.

If you make a stop by this Berkots do not rely on Beermenus for an overview of stock. Also know what's fresh and what's not, there are some IPAs on the shelves that are a few months out. Besides those two concerns there's a solid selection of craft that doesn't get picked over as quickly as other stores in the surrounding areas so you may find a gem here and there.

This is another solid Berkot's Grocery Store. Overall, you're not going to find a whale at any of these locations but there beer selection turns over a little slower than traditional stores so you may find a difficult to find beer here a few weeks after the big rush. I usually go here and other Berkot's locations in the area for seasonal items, they carry a good number of FFF, Two Brothers, Founders, Bell's and Goose Island.

They will hold beers for a couple of days and the staff is always friendly when I go in. They are average on price. They have about 6 coolers with a lot to choose from.
