Average selection. No service and no single bottles, since this was a grocery store. Prices seemed higher than other places. Unless you need groceries and are trying to kill 2 birds with 1 stone, I would shop elsewhere. Everything found here can be found at the other places for less.
I can’t really add anything new to what anyone has said in the past, or in other ratings about this place - Whole Foods repackaged. The beer selection was decent. It wasn’t as though they had nothing interesting, they just didn’t have a lot of interesting things. Picked up an All Souls Ale, which is sold at all of the "big" beer stores in Missoula. Overall, it’s decent, but I wouldn’t expect to find a limited release here, or anything.

Pretty much a carbon-copy of the Whole Foods chain, including the wine and beer layout. In this case, the beer selection reflects that of a smaller Whole Foods-- one cooler, about twenty feet in length. The selection therefore is not huge, but of all the stops I made in Missoula, this place had the best "gems", including barrel-aged Bigfoot, and Ninkasi Barley Wine. I was not approached by staff (nor could I see anyone assigned to this area, so not sure how to rate this aspect). Prices are unsurprisingly higher.
Missoula’s answer to Whole Foods, basically. Smaller, not as homey as Worden’s, nor as interesting as Liquid Planet, but a solid place to stop while you’re in Missoula, as there is enough difference between the three stores to merit visiting them all, but this would be my third choice. They do everything well, but nothing brilliantly, prices are also generally higher than at Wordens or Liquid Planet. Still worth a look, though.

so it’s whole foods-mode, that’s obvious. and a lot of the products and the layout seem to fit the bill. beer selection as well. a lot of regional 6 packs, some singles - a mix of locals and belgians. being the picky beer snob that i am (no apologies offered), i paced back and forth undecidedly... there really wasn’t much here that I haven’t tried or was interested in. sure i could have picked up a few more montana brown or amber ales, but i was looking more for IPAs and special releases. i know, i’m that guy. instead i grabbed a hot sandwich and picked up some bitter root single hop on sale. fine work, sir.
Decent selection, not as nice as I had hoped though. Found a few things I didn’t have but Worden’s is the best in Missoula followed by Liquid Planet . Been back several times now. Prices are better than Worden’s and they usually have some stuff that Worden’s doesn’t.
