Ambience and service at a low because supermarkets are awful places and the chap who served me only did so at the counter and wasn’t old enough to drink let alone offer a considered and thoughtful opinion on beer. That said, he was a nice enough young chap. The selection was considerable: a variety of styles both domestic and imported. A little out of the way, but definitely worth a look if in that area. I’ll be back for certain.
I had to bump up the selection mark as the array is excellent. A range of interesting imported beers, specifically those from the United States, but also a good variety of English beer and cider. Not much in the way of German and Belgian beer, but where else have I found an offering from Iceland?
Service also gets a notch or two up as the Liquor Manager is keen to share his considerable knowledge and enthusiasm if you run into him. Worth a million in prizes that chap.

5 mins from my home, this is the best craft beer selection of any supermarket in Christchurch. The Beer man knows his stuff, and keeps his shelves well stocked with not only the new & interesting, but also some of our regular favorites. Worth a visit any time.

A great selection of single bottle craft beer from New Zealand and around the world. A distinct focus on the best of the local brewers. New beers all the time.
