I was very disappointed in the beer they sold here. Pretty good selection but all the beer I bought was old and stale. My drinking buddies noticed it too. Much fresher beer in Erie at U Pick 6.

When I visited: Late summer 2012.
What I bought: Summit EPA, Horizon Red Ale, Pilsener, and Summer Ale, TrŲegs Dream Weaver Wheat, Lancaster Milk Stout, Sly Fox Pikeland Pilsner, Anderson Valley Hop Ottiní IPA, Red Hook ESB, and others.
What I liked: Pretty sizable selection for a grocery store, lots of refrigerated sixers, cans, and bombers, good mix between US, Belgian, German, and UK offerings, well-organized shelves, specials section, cute and friendly cashier explained PAís weird retail rules to me, managed to grab several beers that I had read about but never tried before.
What I disliked: Some of the bottles were quite dusty and old with a few past their BB date, had to buy 6 packs of beers that I wouldíve otherwise bought singles of, but thatís due to the laws and not the storeís fault.
Would I go back? Yes. This is a convenient stop on the way back from Ohio, Pennsylvania, etc.
Overall Rating: 78

Yes, this is a grocery store but it is quite unusual from what Iím used to. Lots of good beers in here and they are priced right. Food kiosks all over the place for fresh food of all varieties; oriental, barbecue, fried chicken - all kinds of taste bud delites. Lots of local brews on sale too. Tables all over the place to sit and enjoy if you like. I was quite surprised by the ambiance of this grocery store and the availability of the craft and import brews - better than the bottle shops in the area.

Great selection for a PA grocery store, even with the arcane state beer laws. They had lots of good choices to make your own sixpack. We picked up a good variety of Octoberfests. The checkout trainee questioned the volume of our sale, but finally aggreed that we came in under the 192 oz allowed by PA state law. Did I mention that the state liquor and beer laws are just nuts?

Pretty good size grocery store as a whole as is the beer selection. Whether it be packs or singles, they have a little bit of every type of beer from many many different brewers. I noticed that many of there beers are actually cheaper than the Wegmans I live by(bigger selection to) and also cheaper than many other stores around the area. I was impressed overall at the selections and the prices. Good service to as always.

Nice surprise, even though I was told how good it was, Very clean and tidy, every bottle and 6 pack in itís place, A very large selection, I only wish they could get Goose Island.
The 1 person who asked if they could help was very knowledgeable, and we ended up talking for a Half hour, I hope he didnít get into trouble.
The food smelled and looked incredible(for that type of buffet style food). several people eating but not drinking beer?
Other places here in Ohio....30 min. the other way from my house, have even more choices and more hard to find stuff, and will generally do my shopping there, but if I find my self in Erie, This is sure to be a stop.
It will be my next stop for beer....and the one on rt. 20 is even closer to my house here in Ohio, which has a slightly smaller selection.

Wegmans is a huge Rochester, NY based supermarket. The Erie location has a decent enough selection of micros, though nothing super exciting. I managed to pick up 12 bottles of Bellís Kalamazoo Stout. They donít have anything too wacky - mostly they just have breweries main lines of products. Unsure if its a PA law or just store policy, but they limit purchases to 2 6 packs.

While this is a supermarket in PA, they do sell six packs and singles and the prices are much better than in many of the "restaurants" that sell beer in the west part of the state. Selection was fairly impressive... an almost full line of Voodoo, some Bells, Weyerbacher, imports,and so forth. Nothing to get too excited about, but you donít have to buy a case. Singles are mostly limited to bombers and high dollar stuff. I gave them a bonus point in the rating for working on ending PAís arcane beer laws. Go man, go!
