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.

Iíve only visited here once, but will surely be back due to itís GIGANTIC beer selection, and better than average prices. This place has easily the best beer selection of any grocery store in metro Detroit, and I would even say itís one of the best in the state. The market also looks great, and the people seemed quite friendly. I canít wait to move to Ferndale, so Iíll be within biking distance of this great market!

Holiday Market is really a great grocery store. They not only have an amazing beer selection, but their wine and spirits selection is very good as well. As with their whole grocery store, the people who work in the beer and wine section are passionate about their jobs and are extremely helpful. I have shopped here many times, and will continue in the future. Now that I am getting more into beer I have just one more reason to shop at Holiday Market.

I like this place they do have a good selection for a grocery store, but the prices make me stay away. I can get the same beers other places a lot cheaper. I think they have higher prices because they cater to the hip crowd of royal oak that will spend more for something then they should.
