This was a hard store to rate. Small, with an equally small (but nearly all-refrigerated) beer selection, Hy-Vee Wine and Spirits has some hidden surprises. Amongst the Coors and Milwaukeeís Best, you can find some of the best beers on RateBeer (Sculpin, Angelís Share, etc.).
A little boxy standalone liquor store offshoot of the Hy-Vee grocery stores in Quincy, this shop has little in the way of ambience and since there wasnít a "beer manager" on duty, I canít say much about the service. After reading the previous rating, I was in search of Three Floyds (in disbelief!!!) and was told by the cashier that she had never heard of them. Too bad, but I did manage to get Sculpin and Tres, so the trip wasnít a total loss. Pretty good for the tri-state area.

This HyVee liquor store actually has a pretty decent beer selection, the best Iíve found overall in the Quincy/Hannibal region. They have your basic imports that you see everywhere, Bass, Corona, Guinness, Harp, Modelo, Tecate, etc..., they also have one or more selections from Chimay, Lindemans, Ayinger, Bavaria, DAB, Franzikaner, Hacker-Pschorr, Konig Ludwig, Paulaner, Spaten, Tucher, Warsteiner, Birra Moretti, Grolsh, Pilsner Urquell, Tyskie, Bishops Finger, John Courage, Fullerís, McEwans, Newcastle, Old Peculiar, Samuel Smith, Tennentís, Anchor Stream, Berghoff, JW Dundeeís, Elmwood, Goose Island, Huber, Ommegang, Red Hook, Rogue, Sam Adams, Schlafly, Sierra Nevada, Sleeman, Summit, Three Floyds and Widmer Brothers. All the beer is kept cold, the imports and micros in a long open shelved cooler along the front and the macros in coolers along the side wall. The vast majority of the seasonals are macro products. The store is clean, dust free and they seem to have a good turnover rate, I donít believe age will be a quality problem.
