3.2/5  rDev -27.8%

Large selection and cooler; about a third of it is macros. It's an upscale grocery store with a very nice liquor selection too, you can get stuff that you won't typically find in most liquor stores like Luksusowa vodka, nice scotchs, etc. It's easy to get lost in the huge amount of beers in the store but the selection really looks bigger than it actually is, A lot of the beers can be found in different parts of the store; in two different isles or in the cooler and on the shelf. Some old stuff that will never sell at all and has gone bad will be put "on sale" for a dollar off.

People that worked there are helpful but not entirely helpful. I was told that the main beer guy was on break when I asked if they had a particular beer coming in. The only problem with the staff is that they hoard beer as stated in the other review.

The main problem with this store is the layout (Again, too many of the same beers can be found in different spots) and the prices. A lot of the stuff found here can be had at better prices just a few blocks away at Cloverleaf Fine Wine & Spirits or at Champanes in Warren, you'll save money even with the amount of gas you're using. They now break select six-packs into singles on a rack but they markup the singles immensely unlike Cloverleaf and singles that are lower in ABV at Cloverleaf are in the cooler, at Holiday they are just sitting out in the open.

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.
