Ambiance is cramped little grocery store with too many stinkin’ people (but it’s certainly precious)! Service is... helping the other 10,000 people there. Selection of their beers, and some other bottles here and there- nothing too rare or of note. Food is quite overpriced in most regards. Value wise, the beer is pretty affordable, but go somewhere else for groceries (though they do, occasionally, have good prices on cheese). Maybe this place will be a bit more tolerable when the hype wears off.

This would not be a go-to destination to pick up some new beer. However, it’s the only place where I’ve see the Trader Joe’s Brewing Company beers, some of which are pretty good. While you’re there doing some grocery shopping, pick up a few interesting brews.
