Large selection and cooler; about a third of it is macros. It's an upscale grocery store with a very nice liquor selection too, you can get stuff that you won't typically find in most liquor stores like Luksusowa vodka, nice scotchs, etc. It's easy to get lost in the huge amount of beers in the store but the selection really looks bigger than it actually is, A lot of the beers can be found in different parts of the store; in two different isles or in the cooler and on the shelf. Some old stuff that will never sell at all and has gone bad will be put "on sale" for a dollar off.
People that worked there are helpful but not entirely helpful. I was told that the main beer guy was on break when I asked if they had a particular beer coming in. The only problem with the staff is that they hoard beer as stated in the other review.
The main problem with this store is the layout (Again, too many of the same beers can be found in different spots) and the prices. A lot of the stuff found here can be had at better prices just a few blocks away at Cloverleaf Fine Wine & Spirits or at Champanes in Warren, you'll save money even with the amount of gas you're using. They now break select six-packs into singles on a rack but they markup the singles immensely unlike Cloverleaf and singles that are lower in ABV at Cloverleaf are in the cooler, at Holiday they are just sitting out in the open.

On my Royal Oak beer hunt stopped by here after Cloverleaf, awesome these are so close together. This place has two really long rows of beer, mostly Michigan staples with other American craft, didn't see or ignored what international stuff that was there. The selection is pretty good, focused on Michigan but has some of the harder to find ones, a couple rare Jolly Pumpkin, fix Short's, several Dark Horses etc. Some singles but most are 6 packs, so not as accessible as Cloverleaf. Service was decent, seemed busy and more interested in helping regulars than anyone else.
A good store but I wouldn't come here with Cloverleaf so close unless I was getting groceries as well.

Located in a great part of Metro Detroit - Royal Oak is decent place to walk around. Overall selection is not as extensive as Merchants, especially in the import selection. However the actual store is much nicer. Pricing seemed reasonable (had the Breakfast Stout for $10 - 4 pack), and it was easy to get around the selection as it's well organized. Glassware was non existent - somewhat surprising for a higher end store. My only gripe is the inability to break sixers - for me this makes or breaks a store.

I've driven past here a billion times but never stopped in... for whatever reason. I decided I'd make a trek there after hearing about their stock of KBS.
They have an ample beer/wine selection. Most good brands represented. Southern Tier, Stone, Founders, Great Lakes, Bells, Victory, La Chouffe, Ayinger, Boulder, Dark Horse, Arcadia, Avery. Quite a few goodies and rarities. They keep their bottles in good shape but the stock is misleading. Lots of the same beers in different spots. On top of that, their turnover isn't all that great. Lots of shit sits on the shelf that probably shouldn't.
Nice cold selection, nice service, decent quality. A definite go-to place for good brew, especially when coupled with Cloverleaf just down the road.

I like to come to Holiday Market, the staff is incredibly knowledgeable. Like other places though, the stock of what I hoped to find by traveling there was alos out of stock. I came looking for a number of beers that I hoped to find (Linenkugel Big Eddy Russian Imperial Stout, Dogfish Head 120 Min IPA, and Stone-Chipotle Porter), and they were out of stock on each one. What I did find was acceptable. I would continue to go here to find rare beers.

Decided to stop on my way home from Royal Oak Brewery. I was glad that I did. A nice supermarket with all kinds of organic and fresh offerings, it's your typical Royal Oak establishment; until you get to the beer selection. Nice. Lots of belgian imports, as well as a highly respectable offering of Michigan and Regional Brewers (Great Lakes, Victory, Sam Adams, Founders, Bells, Etc. Etc.) Also found some harder to find brews this time of year on hand, and in stock. Most of the stock is well organized on shelves, but there is a nice selection of brews in the adjacent coolers as well. The service was good, as I was greeted when I entered the section, though I didn't require any assistance finding anything. Most suprising is the prices, as they aren't as inflated as I thought I'd find, considering I was in a trendy area. I'll be back when I'm in the area again. Worth stopping in.

Holiday Market is a gourmet type grocery store in Royal Oak. They have one of the best beer selections I have seen for a grocery store. As far as Michigan micros they carry Founder's, Arcadia, New Holland, Bell's, and King's. They have several other micros from Ohio, Colorado, etc. Decent import selection from Germany and Belgium. The only problem with Holiday is that they are expensive. Probably about 10% higher price than you can get elsewhere. However, since they have such a great variety, it would be hard to find a store with both better selection and price.

The Holiday Market is a grocery store in Royal Oak that has a excellent selection of beer, wine, and liquor. One long aisle is filled with beer on both sides (six-packs and some bombers). Most well-known craft breweries have a good lineup of their beers on display here (Great Lakes, Bell's, Stone, Rogue, Sam Adams, Goose Island, Sierra Nevada, etc.). A good selection of imports also are available. The workers seemed nice here too. Overall, this is an impressive place to grab some beers if you're in the area.

Holiday Market is located in downtown Royal Oak [MI] one of the oldest suburbs of Detroit, MI, and now an upscale and trendy bedroom community. Holiday Market is an upscale grocery store that has a very good selection of beer, wine and liquor...OH, and grocerys too (I never make it to that part of the store).
Holiday carries most major brands of Beligan (Trappistes Rochefort, Trappist Westvleteren, Westmalle Trappist, St. Bernardus, etc.), Michigan Brewers (Bells, Founders, Dark Horse, etc), and out of state brewers (Dogfish, Great Lakes, Stone, etc.). They appear to be competitively priced on most brands. One of the best selections in the metro Detroit area.
I especially like Holiday, as I can get lost in the beer/wine and liquor sections while sending my better half to the produce and grocery sections of the Market. The only down side of the Market is finding a parking spot in their [ample] parking lot. Guess that says a lot about their Market though!!

Stopped by on my recent trip to Michigan to visit family.
This is a great place to shop for beer as well as the family meals. The beer selection is tucked away in it's own section along with a good assortment of wines. The beer I looked at was all clean and up to date.
No service was asked for nor was any offered.
The selection of beer was quite impressive. My favorite Michigan offerings were present such as Founders, Bell's, Dark Horse, Jolly Pumpkin, and New Holland. They also had Avery, Great Lakes, Stone, DFH, and Flying Dog.
Prices were as expected and fair.
Holiday Market will always be a must-stop on my Detroit visits.
