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.
