We stopped in here on our trip west and Iím glad we did. A nice corner grocery and sandwich shop. The selection of beer is pretty solid but not outstanding. Lots of locals, PNW brews, and a fair amount of imports. The only drawback is the single basket is very limited and nothing youíd real want (I saw a couple Coors Lights in there). Service was really good with the cashier asking a few times if he could help and then talking to me about my selections and giving me good advice for the next good locals I should try. Everyone who worked there that afternoon was real friendly. We grabbed a couple sandwiches- both were excellent. I asked if there was a good park nearby and was given great directions to Greenough park, where we enjoyed the sandwiches and drinks. All in all, a real nice grocer with great service and a good selection of beer. Your best bet in the area.
Old small town grocery store with a small coffee shop in the corner. Lots of coolers filled with beer. Unfortunately most of the beer is sold in 4 or 6 packs, not many singles. Had a few ciders and meads. Small selection of cigars.
Reminds me of a small town grocery store that stocks a bit of everything. Thereís a deli counter as well, and the beers are in the back, plus a handful of local ciders. Six or seven other folks were shopping for beers too, so it seems to be pretty popular. Prices were decent, and they had a fair selection of local stuff and some interesting Belgians. Right around the corner from Old Post and directly across from Flathead.
I found this place to be a little over rated. Selection was o.k. but pretty standard (no new or limited releases). Anything sold here I found in other stores in town for less. A little disorganized. Beer was sprawled all over the floor in front of the coolers, so it took some time to root through it all. In the 30-40 mins I was there no one approached me, which I liked, but some may not. Overall, worth a stop. If you are looking for hard to find items, there are better places in town.
A very nice beer store for Missoula. I stop in about once a month, and have picked up many good brews here over the years. While the organization and ambiance leaves a bit to be desired, it is still the best selection Missoula has to offer. Thumbs up!
Fun hole in the wall store. Great deli, beer selection, and service. Fun place to shop and check out.

Very unassuming little corner-store market-deli wine and beer shop. If you enter via the deli side, it appears somewhat gloomy. The beer is sprawled all over the aisle in front of a bank of coolers that holds both big bottles and singles. Itís worth rooting through the chaos though, as I found a few hidden gems not stocked in the coolers. What this place lacks in polish it makes up for with its staff. Two young beer geeks who know their stuff and were very pleasant (sorry but Iíve forgotten your names). Certainly worth a stop, and no better or worse than the other beer hunting spots in town (which collectively complement each other and add up to a decent enough selection).
Hole in the wall grocery store. Nice folks providing good service. Selection is standard from what I have seen so far but it is very disorganized. I will be going here more for wine. Try the food later
Very nice little beer store in Missoula. Selection isnít amazing relative to other regions, but itís definitely solid, with a decent range of Montana stuff as well. Service was outstanding--very friendly, and quite knowledgeable as well. Prices were good, but just slightly higher than some other places in town. Overall, certainly worth of a stop if you are looking for a beer store in Missoula.
Great place to stop at in Missoula. Service was excellent and the selection of beer was the best in town. Lots of domestic craft beer and a respectable selection of imports as well. Pleased to see Aventinus on the shelf.
