A few weeks ago, I saw this video and immediately decided that I needed to see it firsthand. Yesterday, I made my first trip.
On the outside, Peace Street Market looks like a dumpy little convenience store. On the inside... yeah, it still looks like a dumpy little convenience store. But the beer... oh, my god, the beer.
I was blown away by what I found. The selection is huge, and most of it is cold. Most stores have a large stock of cheap, mass-produced crap and a small selection of the good stuff. This was the complete opposite... huge selection of crafts and imports, including a lot of stuff I'd never seen before.
The commercial junk? ...tucked away in a far corner. Beer justice.
