Reminds me of a small town grocery store that stocks a bit of everything. There’s 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.

fairly good selection of local and regional bottles but limited singles and lack of many new things (to me) left me somewhat disappointed. i did fill up on some favorite bitter root bottles and prices were generally low. fairly even as far as quality and price compared to the other stores in town.
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.
We stopped in here on our trip west and I’m 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 you’d 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.
We left Flathead brew where we had lunch and got into our car. I checked the GPS to see where Wordens was. It stated 0.0 mi away. I looked around and sure enough it was right there across the street from Flathead. Perfect! Went into the grocery market where we were happily greeted by a self proclaimed beer lover who worked there. Man, he was friendly and attentive and very very helpful. I walked out of there with lots of beer that are for the most part stored cold. I look forward to coming back. Super friendly people here.

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. It’s 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 I’ve 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).
Plenty of craft beers, foreign and domestic, regional and local. Probably 150 bottles in all. Several dozen wines (at least). They seem to have packaged food as well as offering food service, but that’s not why I was here. It seems to be one of those convenience stores that’s grown to be a specialty market through the years, and beer and wine appear to be part of that success. They attract all kinds of customers from around town, but judging by the staff and some of their friends, it kinda seems like ski bums might be a big part of the demographic.
Some of the beers are out at room temperature, but most are in coolers. They have quite a few noteworthy european beers, as well as lots of coastal craft beers and tons of stuff from the PNW, especially MT.
Awesome prices. No sales tax. Beer nerds, this is your Missoula bottle shop.
Stopped in here while chugging along I-90. Awesome deli and beer store. As soon as I headed toward the beer cases, two employees asked me if I needed help. They all seemed pretty beer savvy. Selection was very good as well with tons of regionals, locals, and just plain good beer. Well worth the stop!
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
I’ve been shopping here for years and just realized, it’s never been rated. There are only two good places to buy take-out beer in Missoula, and this is one of them. There is a large cooler full of domestic microbrews and imported beers from Belgium, Scandinavia, Germany, England and a few other countries. There is also a large display of uncooled beers, some not duplicated in the cooler. They carry almost all of the Montana beers. For some reason, they usually even have a couple rare and excellent beers that I can’t find in large cities like San Francisco and Chicago. There is also a pretty good deli, groceries and cigars, along with friendly service.
