Probably the lamest Trader Joes Ive been to in terms of beer selection. Usually these places at least have a couple of shelves of beer and you can find (in addition to the house brands) Chimay and Lindemans. This one didnt even have that. Actually, what they did have that was nice was Daisy Cutter 4-packs for a buck cheaper than at the brewery. This is a scroll past.

A great food store with a small, but impressive beer selection. They were one of the first places you could buy Revolution brews outside of Revolution. Their wine selection offers a lot of choices at very fair prices. I find the staff friendly and helpful. This place is also veggie and eco friendly.

Pretty nice grocer store with an ok selection. They have a few of their own brews but they are terrible pil and lager like beers. They have an ok amount of craft, nothing special, mostly locals. One nice feature they have is the ability to pick your own 6 pack so nice for the ticker.

Not a bad spot for beer. Its mostly the standards with the only standouts being the contract beers that TJs has made for them. Really not a beer destination, but not a bad place to pick up a six pack of decent beer at a decent price.

My local food shopping place. As far as beer, this place has a few nice treats, like GI, Beligian beers, Dogfishhead, Lost coast, Anderson valley, New Belgium, north coast, and some other, nothing rare. What they do carry here is some of their own unique beers that some brewers like GI, FirestoneWalker, Unibroue and some others Im not sure of Brew for them. What is nice is the One off like the Trader Joes Vintage series they sell (brewed by Unibroue) for a cheap ass price of $4.99 a 750ml corked bottle and just recently a Mission St. Anniversary bomber for $2.99. Love this place and what they stand for. Selection is around 40 or so different brews, with an option for a mix your own 4 or 6 pack. Not a great place for the experienced beer geek but a nice entry level place for the newbies, plus a good value overall.

Typical Trader Joe selection with all of their store labelled brews, but not nearly the variety of non-TJ selections Ive seen elsewhere. A few Goose Island and one or two other locals. Whoever added this place to the database as having 100 bottles is way off! Maybe 2-3 dozen choices tops. Loses points for having a bunch of Minahs stuff (BOOOOOO!)

Very average-middle of the road. How about some Trader Joes disoveries. A staff favorites list. Otherwise, no reason to buy here.

Trader Joes devotes more space and energy to beer than other national food markets, and this one is no different. The selection is solid at any given time and changes frequently. There is a heavy bent toward local and regional beers at this location, so expect a lot of Goose Island, Two Brothers, Berghoff, and so forth. The prices are always fair and the staff is attentive and helpful.
