This is easy to reach, just off of I-84. I always stop in when I am going up to Boston from my home in Connecticut. My most recent visit last Thursday evening coincided with a single malt whiskey tasting they were having, with 16 stations serving single malt whiskeys. Unfortunately it was something that you had to pre-register for, and they gave you a wrist band that allowed you to try all the samples. And I just missed the Belgium Beer tasting to be held yesterday (Saturday), so it pays to check their website for both the sales and events. I was able to enjoy freshly cut roast beef and ham sandwiches they were serving near the beer; and a chocolate fountain that featured chocolate covered fresh pineapple slices and strawberries. There was also a bagpiper who played every 10 minutes or so, and some Christmas caroling. All in all, the most memorable evening I have experienced at a liquor store!

OK, about the beer: just an awesome selection! Not quite as big as the selection at their Attleboro store, but still one of the best I have seen. I easily spent an hour or more looking over everything, even though I had some very specific beers I was after. They had the Maine Beer Co, Allagash & Jack's Abbey brews I was looking for, so I left a happy customer. They also had Ballast Point's Sculpin IPA, which I haven't seen elsewhere on the East Coast!

Definitely worth stopping in if you are anywhere in the area!

After a visit to Pioneer Brewing, my wife and I went in search of more beer at Yankee Spirits. The place inside is about the size of a super market. It's gigantic. There is booze as far as the eye can see. The beer is located in the back left. There are about three whole walls of cooler space for cold six packs. Then the back left wall is one massive display of bombers. One of the best selections I have seen in a long time. They literally have everything, and some stuff from breweries I have never seen in in Boston or in MA before. Probably 100 feet of American craft bombers, then Belgian beers, then German beers, then other European beers. I picked up a Stone 11.11.11 for $7.99, then a bomber from Offshore Ale for $3.50 and a 4 pack of Redhook 2010 Treblehook barleywine on discount for $3.99. A manager came right over to the register when I inquired with the cashier about the availability of Pioneer bombers. I could have spent all day in here. This place is worthy of a road trip.
