Please disregard the review below, not sure what the problem was..but please stop whining...this place is a must hit spot if in the general area. Just a few minutes north of the Mass. Pike, where it meets 495, good directions can be found on their website. Large, tons of wine, booze, tasty snacks, and a huge selection of hot sauces, salsas, spice rubs etc.but you came for the BEER and you are a wise BA to visit this spot. HUGE selections of Belgian, many never seen before, HUGE selection of quality domestic, local and regional micros, nice selection of Brit and Germans (yawn). I was happy to walk away with Serpent Stout from Lost Abbey, Dupont Avril, and Avery 15th anniv., none of which I have seen in NY state or in other quality places in MA. (including @ Spirit House and Yankee Liquors) What is nice to see is complete lines of ALL the offerings from so many quality brewers, Stone, Avery, Omme, Lost Abbey, Port, Great Divide and on and on. You will not be disappointed, you will find tons of high quality offerings. Clean, well lit, well stocked, beer in coolers and warm, Friendly staff to boot....just drop what you are doing and go...

I finally got to shop at Julios when I recently was in the area.

It is conveniently located near 495, and there is ample parking in the front next to a Starbucks.

The store sells both wine and beer. The beer selection is quite good. I found a number of beers which I previously have not tasted and that I was looking for.

However, a number of the beers I bought and looked at have older bottle dates. This is an issue with IPAs. The beers were good, but I would have preferred them 2 months fresher.

There were also a number of beers which had a best by date which was about to expire.
I bought a few of these because they were difficult to find, but these beers would have been better fresher.

The display is a bit disorganized. The beers are shelved by brewery, but the more expensive, sought after beers should be shelved separately like in other smaller beer stores, or behind the counter.

Service was very good, although I didn't ask the salesperson any recommendations. The salesperson was very helpful finding beers I requested.

The prices are very good- 15% discount on 6 or more bottles.

In general, an excellent beer store. However, I don't like the older bottle dates on some of the beers. The trade-off, though, is buying a difficult to find beer which be may less fresher.
