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.
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.

My standard shop if I have to buy new beer. Overwhelming assortment of beers from all over the world, I bought my very first Lambic here (it was worth the money).
You want an IPA? No problem. Beer from the Kongo? Also no problem. Wide assortment of beers from the UK and USA? Holy grail, yes!
On christmas they even had Belgian Xmas Bocks and beer advent calenders. But they also regularly stock new german craft beers and seasonal beers.
Like a moron, I’ve been working 20 minutes from this place for 2+ years (it’s on the way home, etc) but did not go until recently as my beer stash from other EU countries (read: Belgium) was simply too big. I decided to go prior to Xmas to pick up loads of Bocks and Winter beers. Needless to say, I was blown away. The place is large, well laid out and has a massive selection. Name the brewery, and they likely have every variation. Prices are low...most bottles I bought (I bought 50+) were around the 1 Euro mark +/-0.50. I often have colleagues or friends who want to bring back unique beers from Germany on a visit. This is a straight shot and about 30 minutes from Frankfurt airport...take them here and they will not be disappointed. Also, they do have a nice selection of beers from other countries and I can get my IPA fix here as they carry Sierra Nevada, Firestone, etc. They have nice wines and liquors too.
Lastly, they even help you load the beer into your car...in Germany, this type of service is not a given. Have your ratebeer app ready on your phone and enjoy spending an hour loading your cart with cool "rarities" not found in such abundance anywhere else! It’s one of the top bottle shops I’ve ever been to globally.
