Holiday Market is located on the south end of Royal Oak on South Main. There is a large parking lot for customers.
The beer section is located in the rear of the store and is cleanly displayed in a couple aisles. The beer is segmented geographically, including by "East Coast", "West Coast" and imports.
As for the beer selection, it numbers in the hundreds with lots of domestic craft breweries like Great Lakes, Keweenaw, Shorts, Dark Horse, New Holland and Saugatuck. Many bombers too from Avery, Goose Island, and Bear Republic too. Many imports to choose from Belgium, the UK, Germany and Canada too. Mixed singles are available as well.
Service is above what you expect from a grocery store. The people working in the beer area were very friendly and courteous and clearly take pride in the display and care of the stock.
Overall this place is my kind of store, reminiscent of favorites like West Point Market in Akron or Hills Market in Columbus. Definitely worth a stop for any beer fan or someone who likes a quality grocer.

Loads of fresh fruit and veggies as you walk in. Store is quite big. Seems to be the hip place to shop in Royal Oak. Macros in the cooler, but a good selection of MI craft beer and representatives from both coasts. Fair number of bombers, a lot of 6 packs. Bells, Founders, Shorts, Dark Horse, New Holland, Dragonmead, Arcadia, North Peak, etc. Sam Adams Barrel series was there, Ditto Stone Vertical Epic, Rogue, Bear Rep. etc.Great prices on the Jolly Pumpkin bombers. Fairly good selection of imports - JW Lees, Tremens, Sam Smith, Rochefort, etc. Cheap glasses. The better store is up the street but if you get to town Sunday after 5 Holiday is the way to go.

I hadnít been here in years - just forgot about it really. Went there today and - WOW - was I impressed. Enormous selection of beer and booze attractively and intelligently and dare I say - lovingly displayed. I was on my lunch hour from the office and though hungry - and with no shortage of really tasty looking food everywhere - I spent the hour looking at the beer.

On my Royal Oak beer hunt stopped by here after Cloverleaf, awesome these are so close together. This place has two really long rows of beer, mostly Michigan staples with other American craft, didnít see or ignored what international stuff that was there. The selection is pretty good, focused on Michigan but has some of the harder to find ones, a couple rare Jolly Pumpkin, fix Shortís, several Dark Horses etc. Some singles but most are 6 packs, so not as accessible as Cloverleaf. Service was decent, seemed busy and more interested in helping regulars than anyone else.
A good store but I wouldnít come here with Cloverleaf so close unless I was getting groceries as well.

I live in HW and shop here at least once a week. I am not aware of a store in the area with bigger selection of Belgians save for Embassy, and Sicillianoís in Grand Rapids with reasonable prices.I donít understand people bickering about prices, the bottle of good craft beer costs 10-15 $, there is no sense in squabling about few cents here and there even if you buy 5 or more bottles. One stop shop for me.

Worth a visit. Decent selections of beers from around the world, at room temp. and in coolers. A good wine selection too. Some beer companies, Bellís for example, are very well represented. Also a good section for continental European beer, they have a particularly lovely Sticke Altbier from Dusseldorf I havenít seen elsewhere. Just a little pricey, but you get what you pay for, I guess. The staff has been consistently helpful as long as Iíve been going there and will give you a break on case prices if you ask. Also, theyíve volunteered to order in beers they donít currently carry if they can get them from their distributors.

I canít believe I never reviewed Holiday before as I have been going here for quite some years. Iíll start with the beer/wine section. There is quite a large wine selection with a great layout to find what you need. The two wine guys (Brian and another guy I forgot) are always helpful if not slightly pompous. However, the beer section is where it is at. Ashley runs the beer section and is always there to help and a good conversation about beer. Ionly rated service a little lower because the guys other than Ashley can be a little snobby sometimes. Quality is top notch and product is constantly coming in and fresh. Price is always a little higher than Iíd like, but it is Royal Oak and expected. Definitely the best beer store in the area.
Now for the food sections as they are the best in the area, bar none. Amazing cheese, meat, bread, bakery and pretty much anything else you can think of. When they devote an entire huge cooler section as well as people for a wide variety of cheese form around the globe, you are in for a treat. For all meat, I head here as well for the best choices in the area.

Really nice grocery store. Think Whole Food but way less corporate and higher quality goods. Wish they had a close like this by my house in Chicago. Back to the beer. While the selection is not huge it is loaded with high quality brews. Lots of local brews including KRE and Bells Oracle. Prices are not outragous but not cheap. Decent size single section. Stock boys stated they will have a glassware section starting November 11th which is nice because it is hard to find even a pint glass at most liquors stores in this area. They have a very nice selction but if your looking for high quality singles I think Cloverleaf is better. But if your looking for a wider selection of brews and a hell of a grocery store this is the place. Service was great as the bagger hooked me up with one of those "green" six pack tote bags for free. Awesome place overall. Not as nice a Bello Vino in Ann Arbor was but same type of store.
