This is more or less on the way from one of the new Lengthwise locations to another. It’s another Trader Joes, another subpar beer selection. I don’t know if they try or if they’re just getting old stock from distributors but some times they have a little more than the usual 20 beers (the house brands and Stone, Lagunitas, and Chimay) but what’s always true is that nothing is in the fridge. And in this case they just have the small basic lineup. You guys have Stone IPA, Lagunitas IPA, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, and Union Jack all sitting out. The upside is that it exposes the typical Trader Joes shopper to better beer, so there’s that, even if the IPAs are old. Over all, meh.

I love Trader Joes but their beer selection is pretty sad. Hop Ottin , Chimay, and Franzikaner are here. Once and awhile they have some Unibroue taster packs that are awesome. None of their beers are chilled. Good prices on the beer they do have though.

A place to buy expensive snacks and groceries - YES. A place to find unique, seasonal and hard to find beers - NO! Mostly stocked with closeout, private label or common labels.

It’s hit and miss as to what you’ll find here. Sometimes jackpot sometimes empty handed.

You CAN buy singles out of 6 packs without paying extra. Constantly changing selection of decent beers. Very helpful staff!
