This is one of the best beer stores I have been in. They have beers from all around the world and you can have most of them as singles. The prices are reasonable, between 1 and 4 Euro for most. This is a great store to taste a lot of unique beers or buy cases at a time. I can’t comment on their rotation of beers as I have only been there one time so far. They have a small assortment of glasses and trinquets. The wine and spirit selection is also plentiful, but I did not buy or price any of these. The service was ok, but speaking German would be helpful on my part. The restroom was very clean, but you have to get a key from the cashier and it was free. (Not the norm in Europe) I will keep checking their selection and post more.

Certainly the most impressive selection anywhere in the Rhein/Main area. Particularly strong with German craft, Belgian, and misc. other European. Not a huge amount from North America but instead a quirky list of obscure international brews ranging from Namibia and Mauritius to the Faroe Islands. Very helpfully sorted by land and Bundesland. If your looking to wrap up your Bundesländer ticks or pad out the the country list then this is the place to go. Service was okay although the lines got long on a Saturday. Good value overall.
UPDATE: if you’re looking for country ticks be sure to carefully read the label on the bottle. A number of the beers listed as being from Third World lands are actually brewed under license here in Europe. Got burned by this myself with a few bottles.
Giant store with lots and lots of beers (local, national, international). The prices are very fair as well, so bring a car or a large bag (however, a car is probably best, since it is not very convenient to get there). Very nice shop, that I recommend if you can transport large quantities of beer.
Located right near the Eberstadt train Station, very easy to get to by public transport (good luck carrying the beer on the train though ;) ).
Absolutely Huge place with a great Selection. I went there twice, and both times they were out of Stock in some beers, so don’t go too late in the Evening!
Shelfs full of german Beers and one wall with international Beers from all over the World. Really nice UK collection, decent Belgian one and many obscure countries with one or two beers.
Prices are pretty good, especially on german Beers, but can reach up to 5 Euros for Japanese or similar rare beers.
One of the best places to buy beer. Probably the Best in Hesse!
An oasis in the desert. Bottle selection has good coverage of german craftbeer, almost comprehensive except some of the Berlin breweries. Plenty of belgian and UK classcs, including some rarer stuff (for Germany) like Thornbridge.
Repeated drive-through visits 2011-2014, 1/3 of our Autobahn trek up north. Giant Getränkemarkt with international beer focus that has been continually developping its range mirroring the broadening German beer scene, displaying a cross section of the most idiosyncratic regional classics (full range of Schneider Weisse incl. TAP 4 & 5, Thurn & Taxis Roggen, Franconian classics, Saxonian Schwarzbiere) as well as a steadily growing selection of new additions ranging from local up&coming Braukunstkeller, Hopfenstopfer, now Ratsherrn and Kuehn Kunz Rosen. Growing international offers of US and UK craft classics and offbeat country ticks (Congo, Mongolia) side by side with silly novelty beers contracted by DE or BE breweries. - Steep prices for many Be imports compared to UK classics like Fuller’s. 2014 was the first time I noticed some Girardin and 3F here, at triple the original retail price. No real beer-savvy customer service on the site to speak of, but cashiers are very dapper and swift and obviously trained to check several mixed cases. Small regional cider selection. Always received availability info by email within 24hrs. Hands-on no-nonsense Pfandabteilung/return service for empties.
A nice drinks market by the highway to/from Frankfurt. A decent selection of international stuff, mostly concentrates on German beers from the local and regional brewers. Some German craft is making appearance as well. A pretty nice place.
Huge getränkemarkt with an enormous selection of mostly German beers from Hesse and surroundings. They have an international selection as well, where country ticks can be found, but there was nothing new for me. Since the focus of course is on German beers, the selection could use a bit more variety in terms of beer styles, and some better beers as well, but that is to be expected. No service to speak of, but then again I didn’t need service. Prices are perhaps a bit higher than normal getränkemarkts, but the selection more than makes up for that, and for a Dane anywhere in Germany is cheap. I would surely visit again to restock if I was to find myself on the autobahn close by.
