This is a well kept store that has a fair selection of beers. While most of the store has excellent prices on above average items, the beer seems to be the exception to the store. For the imports and micros they stock the prices are generally a little higher than the local bottle shops. Their store brands are reasonably priced, but you really have to watch which ones you get. The few brewed by Goose Island are very good for the money, but the others are very hit and miss. The store is highly recommended as a grocery store. I generally go there for groceries and see if there are any new or interesting beers. While they do not advertise it you can mix and match six packs. The price per bottle is a sixth of the price of a six pack - there is no raising the price for mixing.

Hey, I love Joes. On top of the selection noted by previous rater, you can break a sixer at no additional charge per bottle. It’s a cool store, I get most of my groceries there anyway, and I like breaking six packs. Nothing wrong with this one. Staff is very friendly, though very busy and not beer knowledgeable. Plus, if you buy a beer and don’t like it, just bring in the empty bottle and get a full refund! Now that’s service!

I think most people know what kind of store Trader Joe’s is, largely a private label store that offers prices just above a shoppers club store. At this Trader Joe’s they offer, besides their own brands, one or more selections from, Chimay, Duvel, Lindemans, Nostradamus (Caracole), Unibroue, Bavaria, Clausthaler, Gerstel, Oranjeboom, Spaten, Warsteiner, Murphy’s, Newcastle, Young’s, Anchor Stream, Black Toad, Edison, Fat Weasel, Jumping Cow, Kingfisher, New Belgium, Rialto, Schlafly and Sea Dog, Some of Trader Joe’s beers are not that bad, like the Hefe Weizen, the Bock or the Shipyard Oatmeal Stout. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not calling them first rate, just affordable, drinkable beer. They also had Trader Joe’s Winter Ale, which is made by Unibroue. Service is nonexistent, hand offs and the store has always been quite busy and crowded when I’ve been there, so don’t expect any help. Price are in line with or cheaper than other stores. I looked over the stock and I don’t think you will have any real quality problems, the turnover rate seems to be quite high. I have never been to a Trader Joe’s that had wine or beer cooler space and that holds true for this store. If you are a traveler and have time to ice down your beers, this would be a good all-in-one stop, snacks, lunch/dinner and beer.
