I managed to visit this store not once, but twice, during my recent trip to Boston: the morning of the AoBF with TXHops, and in-between sessions with Marc77 and MaineBeerMan.
Quality: Good overall quality with very few dusty bottles. With the exception of the McNeill's beers I bought, everything was fresh and well taken care of. The beer area is a bit small, but is packed solid with great beer.
Service: Quite good, as the staff was knowledgable and willing to assist. One cool thing they do is that every $20 you spend on beer, you get a free beer glass. Between both visits, I ended up with 4 or 5... :<)
Selection: This place has a kick-ass selection of both imported and Northeastern brews. I didn't find any Westy Blonde like I wanted, but my other choices more than made up for it. While Davo got the second-to-last bottle of Thumbsucker, I got the last!

Very nice. Good selection all-around, especially the Belgians. Helpful, friendly staff. I have not been disappointed with the beers from there, although some might not move so quickly. Overall their prices may be a little high,(probably just to cover their high rent), but I think I saw the Westys there for cheaper than anywhere else around. My favorite Boston store for the "finer" beers.

what can I say? I pick up a sixer of "Endurence", yell to the counter,
"Is it any good?"
He comes over and says:
"I haven't tried it, but the Weekly Dig (The Bros) gave it 3 out of 5 stars".
Even more so when he pointed out the Victory 10 & 12.
On advice from Todd, I returned to this establishment. I double parked out front, thinking I would only be inside a few minutes. I was lucky I didn't get towed having stayed a good 45 minutes. They have a great selection of beer, including too many Belgians to mention. What impressed me the most though was the free glass with my $20 purchase. Just call me cheap

This place always seems to be pleased by your visit, no matter how you look. Willing to lend a hand. They always seen to have a few obscure brew options. Prices clearly marked underneath the selestion, with items on sale in red. There is no appearent 'Charles Street' tax imposed on the prices, although it is at the less desireable end, next to the Beacon Hill Pub. Conveniently located within eyeshot of Charles/MGH. Well worth a stop-off. Cheers!
