This is one of several Trader Joes locations in Monterey. I actually came across one on hwy 68 earlier but since the beer selection is really not very inspiring at either location I didnít feel the need to add it. They have the usual stuff: house beers, Chimay, Firestone, Full Sail, Corona, and Sierra Nevada. They had a couple of Lindemans fruit lambics too. I took a look at the born on dates for the Union Jack and noticed that it was only 2-3 weeks old so thatís good, but itís sitting on top of the shelf, under the light, and not refrigerated. Meh.

Obviously not a place to sit down and have a beer, so rating is a little weird, however, as uninspired as their selection may seem, there are some highlights. They often carry Firestone Walker beers and they are excellent. Also made at Firestone Walker,but under a different brewery name under contract for Trader Joeís is the Mission Street line. Do yourself a favor and try them out! At $2 for a 22 oz. bomber, be prepared for a surprise. Itís very good beer!

Small, uninspired beer selection, haphazard shelf displays and no coolers. Not worth the trip.
