What Time Can You Buy Beer At Wegmans

Wegmans is selling the beer from its market cafee under a liquor license that permits beer sales in restaurants. It cannot sell beer from its supermarket shelves and has a limit of selling 192 ounces of the suds at one time.

Russell said beer sales are limited to four registers within the cafee. Shoppers can buy their beer in the cafee, load it in their carts and continue shopping for their normal groceries or complete their shopping trip at the cafee checkout registers, the manager explained.

The Pennsylvania Malt Beverage Distributors Association continues to challenge the licenses in court, hoping that the state Supreme Court will agree with it that Wegmans is using its cafees to circumvent the law that prohibits supermarkets from selling beer.

In addition to Downingtown, Wegmans now sells beer in Pennsylvania supermarkets in Harrisburg, which began Monday, and in State College, Williamsport, Wilkes Barre, Scranton, Nazareth and Bethlehem, Russell said.

If the introduction is any indication, customers will have plenty from which to choose. Russell said the store has 500 varieties, from Pennsylvania beers that include Chester County offerings like Victory and Sly Fox to worldwide brews like Asahi and Tsingtao that hail from China.

A source at the Canandaigua store told SN that customer comments on the serving of wine and beer at the cafe have been mixed. Some customers said they feel it takes away from the family atmosphere. Others have commented that it's nice to have the choice to order wine or beer. Positive comments appear to be outweighing negative ones.

When Wegmans approached Three Heads Brewing about producing an exclusive beer for its restaurants in western New York, Dan Nothnagle had one thought: he wanted to produce an approachable beer that would appeal to a wide segment of beer drinkers.

The Wegmans 1916 Lager, a nod to the supermarket chain's first year in business, launched this week at its Pub inside the Perinton store, 6600 Pittsford-Palmyra Road. The beer, which mirrors a pre-Prohibition Vienna-style lager, will be a draft exclusive, available at Wegmans restaurants such as Amore at the East Avenue store and Next Door Bar and Grill in Pittsford.

"We also wanted something unique, being that 1916 is a very special date for Wegmans," said Antonio Arias, Wegmans restaurant beverage merchant (head buyer of spirits, wine and beer for Wegmans' restaurants). "Like Dan said, you can make a great IPA, but there are so many IPAs out there. We came up with the idea of making something that was popular back in that day."

In Pennsylvania, the pubs have worked with Sly Fox Brewing to produce three beers. The Virginia pubs collaborated with Hardywood Park, one of the best up-and-coming breweries in Virginia, to produce beers. The Transit Road (suburban Buffalo) pub teamed with Big Ditch Brewing to make an oatmeal cookie stout.

Three Heads, which brewed a 30-barrel batch of the lager and intends to re-brew it in January, will be part of the Perinton store's grand reopening celebration Saturday. Nothnagle and brewery co-founder Geoff Dale will be sampling the beer from noon to 4 p.m. Starting next month, 1916 will be available on draft at all of the Wegmans restaurants in New York.

Arias said they are currently throwing around other ideas to extend the Wegmans craft beer brand. He noted that some of the Wegmans-backed beers from other breweries like Hardywood and Sly Fox could be poured in Rochester through an exchange program.

Besides having lived in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle and San Francisco, he visited each of the 50 states many times over, often for extended periods of time, revisiting at least half most years.

As I had mentioned previously, I was worried about the gluten free beer world. Man was I worried for no reason! What I love about gluten free beers is the taste. The gluten free beer market is small, but that means the brewmasters are working extra hard to make a great product. There are very few watered down gluten free beers like you might get from a Coors Light or Bud Light.

From what I have seen, gluten free beer companies are laser focused on emphasizing flavor. No complaints from this guy! I really do appreciate the effort from all the companies to brew the perfect gluten free beer.

The only down side I can see in gluten free beers is the price. Typically, gluten free beers are 2 to 3 dollars more expensive per six pack than their gluten filled counter parts. Not a show stopper, but hopefully prices will drop as demand increases. Only time will tell!

Before I get the list going, I want to clarify the difference between gluten free beer and gluten removed beer. There is a difference between true gluten free beer and gluten removed beer. True gluten free beer is brewed with no gluten containing ingredients from the start and typically certified as gluten free but not always. You will see gluten removed beer out there. What gluten removed means is typically they add an enzyme during the brewing process that eliminates or removes the gluten.

There has been some debate on gluten free beer and gluten removed beer. I have some friends who are Celiac and still have no issue with gluten removed beer and I have some Celiac friends who swear it still negatively impacts them.

This is another gluten free homerun from Aurochs Brewing Company! The flavor in this beer is perfect. Not too strong. Not to weak. Damn near perfect! Flavorful, smooth, and 5.5% all at the same time.

What a solid IPA! I really enjoyed the tropical flavor to this gluten free IPA. It did not have that sour IPA bite you typically get. The color was incredible! Certified gluten free beer deliciousness!

This was my first taste of Ghostfish gluten free beer. Ghostfish is well known in the gluten free community but they are on the west coast. I had dreamt of traveling to Seattle to sit in their tap house. All the social media posts I have seen make them look so delicious.

This Omission Lager is not bad. It has a light taste, and like it says on the bottle, I would agree it is crisp. It is a gluten removed beer which is always controversial in the gluten free community, but if you are able to handle a gluten removed beer, then this is not a terrible option.

This is a decent IPA overall. It is a gluten removed beer, so keep that in mind. It does not have that strong IPA bite or after tastes you might expect with an IPA. If an IPA could be smooth, then I would consider this IPA smooth.

I may have just found a new go to gluten free beer! I really enjoyed this gluten free New Planet Blonde Ale. It was light and refreshing. Super smooth taste. Flavorful but not overbearing. I could imagine drinking a six pack of these during our Carolina Panthers tailgate parties on game day. This New Planet Blonde Ale gives Glutenberg a run for their money! Nothing wrong with some healthy competition in the gluten free beer world!

This list is for all of you! Comment below and let me know what you think. Do you agree? Do you disagree? Is there a gluten free beer out there I must try? Am I missing some critical information you were looking for? Want to buy me a round?!

We're pleased to showcase the local bars, restaurants, and distributors who carry our beer nonstop. These local partners prioritize serving local craft in the highest regard. You'll see draft and now can selections that range from core favorites to eclectic new specialty releases. Thank you partners!

Because Pennsylvania legislators are toying with state law on wine sales, Wegmans will offer only beer at first. It hopes to later, depending on what happens in Harrisburg, offer single-glass wine sales.

Based on trends seen at the other Wegmans stores that sell alcohol, customers are more apt to take the six-pack home than sit in the cafeteria-style seating guzzling beer, Wegmans Lower Nazareth Manager Debbie McCue said.

In July 2021, Wegmans announced it will launch the company's first Manhattan store in 2023. The store will be at 770 Broadway, the site of the recently shuttered Astor Place Kmart. In April 2022, Wegmans announced it would open their first Long Island location, located in Lake Grove. No opening date has been announced at this time.[43]
