I figured it was time to add my local grocery store. Theyíve always had a large wine selection, but theyíve been steadily improving their craft beer selection over the past couple years, and itís pretty impressive now. Lots of local stuff and a strong selection of national and import craft beers, alongside the usual grocery store selections. One and a half end-of-aisle coolers are now dedicated to craft beer along with maybe a quarter of an aisle plus a large end-of-aisle display unrefrigerated. They seem to get a lot of special beers I wouldnít have expected (like Bellís The Oracle), sometimes seeming to outdo the dedicated beer stores in that respect, perhaps just because there are fewer people looking for that stuff here. Theyíve done a great job and they just keep getting better. Doesnít replace a dedicated beer store, but theyíre good enough to be pretty much my only local stop for beer.
