vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4 | service: 3 | selection: 4.5

I live about fifteen minutes away from here in Pennsylvania, so I tend to hop the border for a quick beer run free of ridiculous prices.

Atmosphere: It's nicely set up, a fairly large store. However, it gets crazy crowded at times, to the point of where I can't look at beer for more than a few seconds without someone blocking me (This mainly occurs around the cooler area). Still, overall it's not bad.

Quality: The beer is usually pretty fresh, but there are a few times where I've mistakenly bought expired beer. However, it's not anything atrocious like a year past the bottling date. Just a few months old.

Service: Never asked for help, but the cashiers are just your average cashiers. Nothing to note here, really.

Selection: A great selection of singles, which is by far their best quality. You can do the pick a six thing, where you get an empty six pack and pick six singles of your choice; it's nice not having to stick 18 singles loosely into a cart. They don't have a bad selection of cold beer either, but the singles are definitely the highlight.

Value: It's cheap as hell to me, but then again I'm from Pennsylvania, the bastard state of beer pricing. I also buy beer from an Acme in New Jersey pretty regularly, and the prices here are pretty comparable, just no tax, which is cool.

Overall: If you're close by, have a stop. It certainly couldn't hurt, and you could do a lot worse.

Decent chain store with good craft beer selection, tons of Dogfish. Lots from Mid-Atlantic and some oddball imports too. Be prepared for some crowds though, aisles are very narrow and makes browsing difficult.

This place is amazing. The selections in liquor, wine and of course beer is unending. If they don't have it, it hasn't been made. Hundreds of beer selections in bottles, cans, kegs and a growler station will make any beer enthusiasts feel like he's died and gone to heaven.

The infamous Total Wine of the borderlands! Truly massive and rather busy, but mostly wine and spirits. The beer is almost like an afterthought here...

I do like their growler station, with 24 handles and good stuff including Merry Monks, Palo Santo, Brooklyn Blast... also their mix-and-match singles section, divided in style or region (odd to see "New York", "Boston" instead of "IPA", "Porter" and what not).

Nothing terribly amazing here. This is not the place for your special releases or barrel-aged brews, but it is a good place for daily beer needs at excellent prices. They do have a lot of four-packs (at room temperature unfortunately) priced nicely: $7,99 for Victory Dirtwolf, $11.99 for Burton Baton.

No help on the beer section but friendly wine folks. I prefer the NJ stores for variety, but you can't beat the prices here in DE.
