Final stop on my walking tour of Burlingame places. Mollie Stones is a lot like Whole Foods, but as Andrew notes, predates it. Beer and wine in the back, not a lot of selection, and I would say that quality has been surpassed by other outlets by this point. Most beer in fridges, which is a bonus.

Before I was aware of Whole Foods growing up, there was Mollie Stones, which was my original impression of the "rich people grocery store". The place is kind of a mix of Whole Paycheck and Trader Joeís.

The beer selection is not huge, but is pretty high quality. A bunch of Bear Republic, Deschutes, Speakeasy, Lagunitas, North Coast, etc. a bunch of ciders, including a new sparkling La Face Cachee offering. Pricing is okay. They also have a bunch of Sake.

It works well enough to grab a quality sizer or single large format bottle. Just about all the beer is kept cold except for am end cap which also features some glassware.

My second Mollie Stoneís on my recent visit to California. As much or more brews as a Whole Foods and what I like about MS is that they are somewhat like a Whole Foods and somewhat like a normal grocery store. This particular store had more "rare" or "limited" finds than any other store I went into while in the SF area. This would include a few limited releases by Firestone Walker as well as a few Cigar City/Widmer collaborations. Oh, and they also had giant bottles (32 oz) of Lagunitas Sucks for $5. Not bad! Picked up some nice brews and deli food to go along with it.

Visited December 23, 2013.

I stopped in on the way back from visiting a client. Holiday traffic sucked and I wanted to see if they had any Lagunitas Sucks. Unfortunately they didnít, but they do have quite a bit of other stuff. Itís been over a decade since I last set foot in a Mollie Stoneís and for good reason. This place is higher end and more irritating than Whole Foods. They have a surprising amount of beer to choose from. That said, itís all the usual stuff that everyone carries. From California: Bear Republic, Sierra Nevada, Lagunitas, Ballast Point, Speakeasy, Stone, etc. From Belgium: DuPont, Chimay, Achel, Van Steenberg, etc. Probably the most interesting thing that I saw was the Buzzerkeley from Calicraft (which I think is contracted). The upside is that almost all the beer is refrigerated, which is something I rarely see.
