quality: 5 | service: 5 | selection: 4.5 | $$$
I was introduced to this place by a friend of mine. I decided to go there and when I walked in I swear to God the light of Heaven was shining from the beer section. The selection was amazing. I went there for their selection of Oktoberfest beer and they had plenty to choose from. They had a mix and match fall beer section which I took full advantage of...6 beer for $8.99.
They also have other mix and match beers which were great also.
They also had a great selection of really nice artisan beers such as Trappistes Rochefort. The one thing I could not find there was Duvel.
They also have beer tastings on Fridays and Saturday mornings.
The service was very helpful and friendly.
All in all I really like this place. It is an excellent place to go when you are really looking for some quality beer.

Easy to find, plenty of parking. The market itself was recommended as a great place to get quality meat and veggies and it is. I was surprised to see a large room within the market dedicated to beer and liquor.
A Unibroue rep happened to be there, hawking and offering tastings and a free glass. He did a fair amount of beer advocacy as well, so good on him. He talked a self-professed non-beer drinker into sampling a brew and she was clearly impressed. "Oh, well this isn't beer," she said. I love that. I sampled their Chambly Noire and Blanche De Chambly (little black-and-white action) and got a nice oversized wine glass with a tiny little chip in the bottom (well, why did you think they were free?).
The selection is impressive, with plenty of craft beers to choose from and a decent selection of imports. The staff there didn't seem to know that much about the beer (it is a grocery), but they were pleasant and tried to help as much as they could.
They had a make-your-own six pack set up (two or three tables full of unrefrigerated beer) with so-so choices, and a separate make-your-own summer seasonal sixer, which seems like a very good idea.
I spent over $100 and came away with two boxes of beers I had never tried and a nice beef flank and chicken breasts for the grill.
It's a great one-stop shopping mecca for me. Beer and quality meats. I will probably get to know the staff there very well over the next few weeks.
