quality: 4 | service: 5 | selection: 4 | $$$

Stopped in here randomly when I was out that way. Thought I'd do a quick check to see if they had any Nugget Nectar left. To my surprise it was a great store. A very nice back wall cooler selection full of good beer to choose from. Probably 8 doors or so led to craft brews and 1 or 2 to Miller, Coors and the like. I searched these for a while before I noticed a big section (not cold) of single bottles, one side domestic craft, the other side Belgian, German, etc...Very friendly staff and they even searched high and low for NN when the computer said there was one left (the computer lied). I ended up coming away with a few things including a sixer of Victor Hop Wallop. They also had some cases and 12-packs on display which I like to see...oh, and huge slection of wine.

All in all a great beer store that I was not expecting to find...the only quam, as others have stated, is that it's a bit pricey. But only like $1 more per 750ML then typical in Boston...not too bad in my book. I'll stop in there in the future when the girlfriend drags me shopping in the area.

Edit: also, judging by previous reviews for this place, I think they've upped the bar some over the past couple years. They had a nice selection when I was there, pretty diverse, and up to par with Boston area stores.

This is my go-to store when i don't feel like making the trek to Julio's or Gordon's

It is essentially a warehouse styled space, nothing fancy to speak of

The staff here is great. As long as you're willing to order a case, they will get anything for you. They are very fair with limited releases, always one bottle per customer and usually in a spot YOU CAN ACTUALLY SEE behind the counter, sometimes even just on the shelf with a hand written note requesting customers to keep to the bottle limit.

Relative to the rest of the stock, the beer has a small percentage of space, but the selection is still of a higher quality than your typical local packie and just a notch below some of the big name stores

Prices are usually on par, if maybe a dollar cheaper than the bigger stores, but they don't offer a mix n match discount program. I can only surmise the only reason they don't do this is they probably don't have the room for the likely increase in volume that would result in implementing such a program.

Nice place near my place of employment with a knowledgeable and helpful staff, can't ask for much more than that

This is a small place located next to a Whole Foods Market on Route 9. There are more spirits than beer but the small beer section does have an above average selection of regional and local micros as well as the national brands. But there was nothing here that could not be found elsewhere. The employees really did not interact with me but they were friendly enough at the register. The prices felt reasonable with Westmalle small bottles selling for $5.99 each. They did not appear to allow for mix and match.

Headed here after dropping my wife and daughters off at the mall about 1.5 miles away.

Very nice shop. While the selection is not huge, they have a good representation of local and regional beers. Also a nice selection of imports. Clown Shoes, Life and Limb, and Ale Smith were all good finds. Newport rum aged porter also a nice find.

Beer manager was very interested in talking beer with me, but the store was not very crowded - at least at 2 on a Friday afternoon. Other staff was friendly as well.

Not far from BBC, either.

I am a newbie on this website. I found out about this from an employee who recomended this website.

On to my store review. I was on my way home when I stopped by to see if they had any KBS available. They did and the beer mgr and another employee spent time talking to me about what they had and their likes and dislikes. I found that the selection was fantastic for a medium sized store. Both me were knowledgeable in the craft beer section. The prices are reasonable. I highly recommend this place and for wine people they have a gigantic selection and if you need any type of beer they will get it for you.

Atmosphere is nice. Nice area of town, it has a pretty big Whole Foods next door, so it's a convenient place to go if I'm grabbing stuff from there.

Quality of brews is pretty solid. They always seem to have some good things in, they keep a list of BA top 100 posted with the beer they have in stock highlighted.

Service is great, I really like the manager/beer guru. He's a friendly dude who is very knowledgeable about beer and what's available when.

Selection is a bit limited. Clearly they do a lot more business with their wine and liquor than with their craft beer, but it's still respectable for their space.

Overall, one of my usual spots. Sometimes I can find some cool stuff and I always have a good conversation.
