I'm reviewing this grocery store eatery-beer-annex as an update to the review below.

The selection is about the same with seasonal stuff rotating in. The guy who does the ordering needs to branch out a bit in terms of big beers. I would love to see more imperials and barley wine ales. However, they do have a decent selection of regional crafts.

The price of a mixed 6 is now at $12 and the selection isn't anywhere near what was stated previously. The only DFH is the 60 min. If I had seen a Palo Santo, I'd have shat myself. There are a few intriguing names on the end cap but nothing that's going to give you an insane deal. The highest abv I found was the Troegenator doublebock at around 8%. Cost of 6ers is a bit higher than you'd find at a normal bottle shop. 22s and 750s are also marked up.

The worst thing about this spot is that they don't advertise to BAs in the area. The selection has hit a plateau since it first opened and is starting to fall off. It's great for finding those familiar craft and commercial domestics with a small import shelf. Don't expect to stumble upon a gem here.

I stopped here a few times after learning on the radio that they are licensed to sell beer similar to the Wegmans arrangement with an 'Eatery' attached to the beer sales area. They have about 10 cooler doors with mostly craft but about 30% BMC with an area you can mix a six for the cheapest price I have seen anywhere-9.49 for brands that include DFH, Troeg's, Sam Adams, Long Trail as well as Brooklyn so the price is right considering I was able to put a couple Palo Santo bottles and a Perpetual IPa in the mix.

The place has free WI-Fi which is nice but it is mostly chinese/deli food so it is your average grocery store fare not bad, but the reason I come is they rotate the beer and seasonals are well represented with some Belgian/German/English styles represented and the price for a bomber of Victory Helios is less than $5 with Hop Wallop only $5.56! I would recommend it since they also have singles like Rogue, Stone and Victory as well as Samuel smith you can purchase to consume while you eat.
