It’s a great local neighborhood grocery store, but a beer destination, it’s not. They are somewhat inconsistent in their beer, bad one visit and moderately decent the next. On my last visits they had picked up some local straight to ale and blue pants bottles, so hopefully they will continue in the craft direction.

Star Market is a fixture in Five Points. It was at one time the only place in town you could buy Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. They’ve also taken over another local institution Terry’s Pizza so they also also make the best pies in town as well as having one of the better butchers. Recently they’ve been stepping up their beer game as well. They have the random awesome thing like Cigar City Jai Alai and also sell a very few as singles as well. It’s not anything yet to make a special trip for, but it is a step in the right direction, Update 6/12/12 the beer selection looks like its regressed. They have 1/2 of what they had 6 months ago but they added one of the worst pick 6 sections I’ve ever sen with only 16 beers to choose from.
