Well, stopped in here when I was in town for a wedding. Given the isolated nature of Macomb, they had a surprising amount of variety available. I picked up Founders Nemesis 2010 here and a couple other not rare, but quality beers here. Not bad, particularly for the area.

(3/08 Update... Chimay and a few German imports are gone. Great store for BMC products, something is always on sale. Craft/micro beer selection is down, for me now, the third best store in Macomb.)...This store is separated part of the Hy-Vee Food Store.This is the second best beer store in Macomb, in my opinion. Selection is average with one Belgian, Chimay, some micros and your standard imports. They have a selection of beers by Anchor Stream, Breckenridge, Goose Island, Boulevard, Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams, Rogue and Red Hook. Imports are like the ones you see everywhere, Bass, Red Stripe, Harp, etc..., and they have a few German and UK beers and a few ciders. Outside some cheap 40oz. malt liquors, Chimay is most likely only thing above 6% abv youíll find here. Service is friendly, but hands off, only the manager has a little knowledge about beers. Turnover rate is good, so freshness shouldnít be a problem, but check the best before dates to be sure. I recently found some Boulevard and UK imports that had expired. You can buy lotto tickets here. They have at times sold micro variety packs, like from Goose Island, and most of the seasonal beers are usually from the macrobrewers. Good place for Leinenkugelís. Like everywhere in Macomb, no Sunday package sales. No singles/mix-a-six section like in Galesburg.

This is so cool that JMerritt entered this place into the database. I attended school at this town (Western Illinois University) and would frequent this store for beer. They dont have the greatest selection, but enough for such a small town. I used to buy Sierra nevada, Rogue, Goose Island, and Anchor products at this store regularly. Many memories with my dorm buddies making beer runs here.

Updated 6/24/2011: They have added additional fridges and now carry more cold six packs of their craft beer. Mix-a-sixes available at $9.99. However, in recent months Iíve noticed that selection is getting stagnant, and rarely do you see seasonals or special offerings from Boulevard, Goose Island, etc. Last few times I asked staff if they could order something for me, they kind of blew me off. Locally, I now find a better variety of craft beers at West Pierce Liquors.
