Stopped by on my way home from a trip to MASS. Super convenient location along the 495/Mass Pike connection. Good parking and easy to find (next to starbucks).
Upon entering - Beer is to the right - all else is to the left. Nice selection of US Craft bottles from Joly pumpkin, cascade, lost abbey in one area and a local Mass/New England craft section full of Cambridge, Jacks Abby, Maine, allagash, etc on another rack. There is a row full of Germans, followed by English, then a big selection of Belgian, with an end cap of Scandanavian. A cold row of US 6 and 12 packs and another row of warm US brews.
There were lots of sales too. I got a CBC great pumpkin ale for $2.99! They had a Bruery Tart of Darknes for $19.99 also which is like $5 off what I normally see it for (I should have picked that one up). They also have a 15% discount when you buy 6 or more singles, which is awesome. They include sale items in the "6 pack" but only discount the full price items. I got a Lost Abbey Devotion and Mayan Judgement day, Jolly Pumpkin Bam Noire, Jacks Abby Hoponius Union, CBC Sgt Pepper and Great Pumpkin; all for like $33! (with discount)! You also get a "punch card" which entitles you to a free special edition glass when you make your own "6-pack" of bombers like 18x. So, basically you get a free limited edition brewery glass with every 108 bottles you buy...somewhat insane amount but nice that they reward you for being loyal.
I heard they get nice rares like Cantillon, like 2x a year, but they obviously didnt have any left on a random sunday afternoon...
Worth a stop if you are passing by or if you know of a special release; especially since you get a %15 discount when you buy 6 bottles. Nice workers and are very willing to help if you need it.
While the selection is big, its just not any different or better than places local to me like DeCiccos in Brewster, Port Chester Beverage (expensive but good selection), or my uber local fav, Vista Beverage; but they do carry New England only brews like CBC and some national brews like Lost Abbey, that I cant get or is hard to get in NY.

Visited here after learning I had some family living relatively close by... was looking to pick up some locals as well as anything else that might catch my eye.
I didn't really peruse the rest of the sections of the store, just the beer. First spot I encountered was what seemed to be an elbow of newer releases / rarer bombers. Nice selection of stuff there, about on point with the market average pricing (at least compared to my home state of PA). There was a wall of 'locals' bombers, which was great for a guy like me, saved time sifting through the other aisles with a checklist! I found a good majority of what I had on my "to search for" list, and also browsed the coolers and other rows.
Overall, a good experience and I'll definitely pop back in on my future visits to MA!
My composite score is down a bit only because I didn't have any 'service'- no one asked me if they could help with anything- this was no problem, because I was happy just to browse, but that's why the rating is hovering around okay.

Large store with a great selection. They get all the limited release beers but you have to get there quick because they are very busy and popular. Knowledgable and helpful staff. The prices are a bit higher than other stores but their selection is unmatched. If it wasn't an hour drive for me I would be a fixture in the store.

Amazing selection! Its like a candy store for adults. Great Selection of local and Belgium beers. Tim and Chris are very knowledgeable and nice people. Whatever beer gets distributed in Mass, most likely this store picks it up. A must visit for people in New England...
