Naturally, my interest was primarily in the craft beer selection, which is what this post will focus on. This does not mean you won’t find great food, wine, and liquor there. (In fact you will. I saw OYO and Watershed products on the shelves, and those are good stuff – made here in Ohio.)
Their seasonal beer selection included Fat Head’s Holly Jolly, Troeg’s Mad Elf, Southern Tier 2XMAS, Thirsty Dog Pumpkin Ale, and others. It’s a smaller selection than many retailers, but contained a beer or two I’ve not seen elsewhere yet.

The pricing was comparable to other local retailers. Take Gulden Draak (large size bottle) as an example. The Hills Market price was $11.99, which is the price I’ve seen it going for almost everywhere. Once I bought two bottles for $8.99 each, which is the lowest price I’ve ever seen for it.. I’ve also seen it as high as $13.99 in local retailers.

The Hills Market staff were friendly and helpful without being pushy or “in your face”. They offered thoughtful suggestions but would also leave you alone to let you shop in peace. Overall a good shopping experience.
