excellent beer selection - the best in Melbourne and the surrounding areas... at least that I’ve seen. This is my new store to stop at whenever I am in the MLB / Vero Beach area.... they had a bunch of hard to find beers such as Dogfish WWS, 120 min and Raison D’Extra. Great store + lots of food and produce.
Has an incredible selection for the compact space that the beer section is confined to. Has some great Allagash beers and Cigar City stuff. I would highly recommend this place to any beer nut.

Big warehouse building with a clean, well-lit, few-thousand-sf retail section with probably a quarter of the floorspace devoted to wine. Nice looking fresh produce. Draft beer (bud select) available for your shopping pleasure. Impressive beer selection crammed into a 10x10 corner, all quality stuff, including some rarer imports and limited-production beers. I declined help, but the beer guy assisting other customers seemed quite knowledgeble. Beginner homebrew kits and a few dozen Wyeast smackpacks in the cooler. Out of the way, but worth the visit. If I lived in the area, I’d shop there all the time.
Probably the best selection in Melbourne. The choices can fall a little flat where they may stock a particular brewery and only have their ’safer’ beers to offer. It’s a trade-off to conserve space in the store (stock few beers from lots of breweries), though the store is quite large as it is essentially a warehouse. This is a produce market so you can get your entire meal here and they have some prepared foods. Perfect while vacationing in Melbourne / Space Coast and you can’t do all the food prep yourself. Staff is busy and not-so-helpful so those new to beer may be a little overwhelmed.
Visited on a recent trip to Melbourne. Very impressed with the beer selection as they had a very robust array of Belgian ales along with a nice smattering of american craft beers as well. Some are warm and some are cold. Definitely will have some beers that folks cannot find elsewhere like De Dolle Teve 10, Stille Nacht, the entire St. Bernardus line, Duchess, Tripel Karmeliet, and many others. Some singles and some 6-packs not sure if one can break 6-ers or not. Definitely worth a stop when in the area especially given that the produce and meat selection are oustanding as well.
Beer is mostly in the back middle of the store. Plenty of U.S. and local brews, but their strength is imports: especially beers from Germany and Scotland. Most are kept room temperature. Plenty of singles available but these are mostly imports and mixed-6 packs are not available.
