Full store-wide shelf of craft selections mostly comprised of bombers as the single 12 oz bottle tend to sell out pretty quickly.

I really want to like this place..BUT, Freshness here is an issue. The beer section isn't lighted heavily to try and preserve bottles, but still.

Found a few bombers I hadn't seen anywhere else in town, and because of that they were at a premium+ price. The owners genuinely mean well, But without checking stock regularly they end up with a ton of sitting beers that won't move.

If you don't mind dates, Give this place a shot.

Nice little grocery store with an exceptional beer selection. Good amount of quality local beer as well as vintage and curretn imports.

Had an '05 N'ice Chouffe and 2005 from Unibroue. Also had a '97 vintage French Biere de Garde that was drinking quite well.

As far as locals, they had Bells, Arcadia, Founders, New Holland, Dark Horse, Shorts... Had a good balance of session beers as well as craft beers like Hopslam, Expedition, Dragon's Milk...

Overall, well priced and a greta place to find a tasty bottle.

This is one of the older grocery stores in Monroe, it used to be part of a chain but is now independently owned. Beer selection is fairly extensive, with a lot of michigan beers well represented such as Bells,Founders,Arcadia, as well as many imports and bombers. Check for dates as there are several "slow movers" that have been on the shelf for a while. Service is typical for a grocery store, friendly and helpful, but not necesarily knowledgeable as far as beer goes. Overall, however, a pretty extensive selection with some bargains to be had for the keen eye.
