Stopped in here on my way to the airport, and to check out the new Sheffield's across the parking lot.

Though the store showed it's age a bit (looked like a former grocery store) there was a solid selection here, comparable to a few other Binnys in the burbs. The layout was sort of staggered, long supermarket aisles of craft sixers opposite more craft in bombers. 750s, and more sixers. Imports were closer to the cooler, with Belgians awkwardly facing the macro coolers. Main gripe is that there was very little craft beer in the cooler. Being in a random suburb, there were a few gems to be found among the comprehensive selection. Full lines of FFF (at least 12), Port/Lost Abbey (12-15), Founders (8 or so + DD), New Holland, Lagunitas, Goose Is., etc. Oddballs like Hook & Ladder and Sherwood Forest that aren't widely available yet. Good import selection, Nøgne Ø, Handbaak, Cantillon Kriek, 4 De Dolle (Exp. Stout, Oerbier, Dulle Teve, Arabier), lots of German & Eastern Euro, but not dominated by them.

There were three employees at the one front register, but no one on the floor or at a 2nd register. I asked where Sheffields was, and they helped me find it (right across the parking lot). Overall a solid selection, which is much improved from the reviews of past years.
