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.
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!
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.
One of the best beer stores I visited in Missoula - probably the weakest selection of Belgians/imports (Iíd check out Liquid Planet for those), but an excellent selection of local Montana breweries, and a nice selection of seasonals and one-offs from New Belgium, Sierra Nevada, Alaskan, and a few others. Pirices were better than at the Good Food Store. Overall a solid stop.
Well, being from a great beer destination, I must say that this wasnít impressive, but I have to understand the context. Ok, well, understanding the context, Iíd say that this place has a fairly decent selection. They had a decent amount of imports, and they had a nice representation of the local stuff. They were spotty in some areas, but surprising in others. For example, they had bottles of Deschutesí The Stoic there, but didnít seem to have a mix of the local stuff. I was slightly expecting to be "stunned" by local representation in terms of, quite possibly, one-off type beers, but nothing. Overall, the prices were great, and I was able to pick up a 4-pack of Coldsmokes for home. Decent selection, and again, remember, this is Montanta -- they do what they can here. Forgot to mention the setting -- essentially, itís a small grocery/corner store type setting. Itís right across the street from Iron Horse, and in the downtown area, so give it a try.
One of my favorite places to go in Missoula, so I can stock up on beers I canít find on the other side of the state. Many Montana and regional beers to choose from, as well as imports. Many 22oz bottles, plus select 6-packs. Many beers that I havenít found elsewhere, at least of places Iíve been to in the state. Never tried the food from the deli, so I just ranked that in the middle. I easily drop over $50 every time I visit. I can spend a ton of time in there pouring over every beer, to decide just what is coming home with me. I found several limited release beers there last time - ones that Iíve not found in other stores in the state.
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 thatís not why I was here. It seems to be one of those convenience stores thatís 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.
Best place in Missoula to buy off-sale. Lots of different beers to choose from.

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.
