Better selection than BIG groceries and Walmartís. The place is nothing to write home about, but if you crave some good craft beer you will find something to enjoy here.

Mostly macros and a few imports, the service was good but not a good selection overall.

Been to this Hy-Vee a few times. Wasnít too happy about the service or selection. The store is dirty. Not pleasant experience.

Iíve lived right next to this place for years. Decent beer selection for the area but you arenít going to find anything you canít find at other places in Iowa. Good prices, good employees. They also have limited amounts of homebrew supplies. This certainly isnít worth a stop from a beer dork unless you are in the area and need beer for the night.

I used to live 4 blocks away from this place and it was on my way home from both work and school so it was my go to place for a quick sixer. Pretty good selection, usually have pretty knowledgeable staff in the day time, less so at night. More heavily Wine and Liquor based as al Hy Vee WIne & Spirits but still a good selection of micro and macro. Decent selection inside of the grocery store when the seperate liqour store is closed as well.

I agree that Johnís Grocery is the place to go for beer selection. By at least 100 plus more beers.
But.....as far as KAFís comment on the "people here" KAF must have talked to a temp or trainee because most of the staff are home brewers or will refer you to one of the home brewers that work there. They also have a "single beer" fridge that is always loaded with top of the line single beers. I for one am very happy to have them just a couple blocks away.

This is nothing special and if youíre here you may as well head a few miles into Iowa City and go to Johnís Grocery. The people here are not very beer savy and they do not carry are great variety of beer. There are some lambics and of course Guinness but nothing that you canít find anywhere else.

Not a bad grocery store to pick up beer if you are in the neighborhood. Nothing like Johnís Grocery, but an ok selection in a pinch.

In full agreement with Heemer on this. Not sure why Hy-Veeís entered either. About what youíd expect from a chain grocer.

Donít know why someone would enter a chain grocery store. The Hy-Vee on the east side of Iowa City has a much better selection. If you are in the area go to Johnís Grocery.
