This is a specialty foods grocery store. So, if the vibe you are expecting is grocery store, then you should be okay. If you want this to be a great hangout spot, then you don't know what a grocery store is.

Service here is typical grocery store.

Selection is abysmal considering this is supposed to be a specialty foods store. You can buy excellent quality food of every type, but apparently the beer you want to go with your great seafood or steak is Corona.

I'd recommend skipping this place when in Bethesda and looking for beer. For your sake, let's hope you are never in Bethesda looking for beer.

Since nobody has written a review about this place I figured I put it a couple comments about the place. You should know I have been in this store at least 100 times and until I saw the listing here I never thought about the beer. I know they sell it but it is not a large selection. They also sell wine.

Every thing in this store tends to be expensive compared to other places. The specialty foods is where this store shines. If you are looking for the best of anything, and you can't find it, then this is THE place to try.

This is the only store listed for Bethesda although I know that Montgomery County has at least one of the liquor stores in Bethesda.

If your looking for a great beer selection and better prices, take an extra 20 minutes and drive to Chevy Chase Wine and Spirits in Washington, DC and see Larry Robinson. (see the reviews for this store under Washington, DC)
