This is a fantastic place. I just wish I got down to Royal Oak more often. All of the beer and wine is located in one large area. Beer is in one aisle on both sides. There is one full shelf of bombers and six packs on one rack. Wide array of local and domestic brews from all over represented. There is a short open cooler behind this rack that is filled with a wide variety of six packs. A ton of local stuff, beers that are better kept cold etc. There are a couple more racks next to the domestic shelf and these are loaded with an unprecedented selection of imported beers with stuff like Hanssens and Beer Here represented. On the wall at the end of the aisle there is a whole rack of singles with a wide variety of offerings represented. An especially large amount of local offerings are on that shelf as well. As for quality, it is pretty good. I have checked bottle dates and a lot of stuff is fresh, especially the beer that sits in the cooler. They have a damn good turnover at this store so freshness is pretty much a non-issue IMO.

I don't know much about the service because I usually don't need any, but there is always 1 or 2 guys in the beer/wine area and they are actively answering questions all the time. I have also seen them in the beer section answering style questions and making recommendations to other customers in the store.

Overall this is an outstanding establishment, and I will definitely be back here in the future. Especially if I am looking for some good imported Belgian brews and the like.

excellent selection for a supermarket. Limited singles (and many from very old batches). Good prices on the latest arrivals as they are in quantity. Virtually no service so you are on your own.

Nice sized beer section for a grocery store. The store itself feels like a warren or a maze, but once you find the beer aisle you're all right. Lots of brews available from across the country and the world, including some limited releases. Great singles selection, four taps for growler fills, lots of Belgian ales (hooray!), but wasnt able to find any variety packs. Decent, comparable prices. The Holiday in Canton is laid out a bit neater, is less busy, and is brighter; this one has a bigger singles selection. Definitely a place to stop on this side of town.

Very haphazard store but has everything - best beer selection in area with knowledgable FULL TIME beer staff. Well organized, best singles selection in area and one of the best fresh food markets around. The Gold Standard on how to run a world marketplace.

If there is any beer from outside MI that you are trying to find HM is the place to go! Amazing selection, great staff, plus the food selection at HM is great!

Wow! A grocery store that totally rocks the beer scene...we were in town last week for a concert from Ontario...hit about 9 craft beer stores, unfortunately we went here first and we're not looking to overshop early...promptly greeted by several staff, selection was deep including a Michigan only section. Def one of the top spots we hit...this would be be one of one or 3 stops when we come back.
