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!
