This was the first of two Mollie Stones locations that I stopped at on the same day. Previously I hadnít been to a Mollie Stoneís since I lived in the area in the 90s. The beer selection sure has changed. Back then they had a handful of options from Sierra Nevada and Mendocino. Today there is a beer section in the corner of the store with several shelves. Green Flash, Bear Republic, Knee Deep, Marin, Ballast Point, Ninkasi, Stone, Firestone, Napa Smith, Rogue, Allagash, and plenty more. I was impressed. Best of all they had a stack of Lagunitas Sucks, as well as six packs of Daytime IPA. The downside: the Sucks is only in 32oz bottles. Granted, the $7 price tag isnít terrible for 50% more beer than youíd get in a 22oz bottle but I want my six packs again. Screw this large format crap.
The rest of the store is a high end grocery store complete with over priced food, well to do soccer moms that donít know how to push a shopping cart around (let alone drive a 50k SUV), and a large cheese display. I bought a couple small things from the cheese display, neither of which were actually cheese. This is near a client so I might stop back in for some Lagunitas Sucks or Daytime IPA but I wonít be making the trip up the peninsula just for this.
