We had to get a quick stop in at Julio's before heading to CT to visit Willimantic Brewing on our trip to New England for Kate The Great Day. I am very pleased we did since I am having a small tasting and want to share some unique beer. I was glad to pick up some Bourbon county stout to share with tenderbranson69 and Alesmith and Pretty Things for abru17. The selection is unreal - very good with almost every style I could think of represented save for a handfull. The quality is great too since the store is laid out with wine to the left hot sauces and food items, cigars and liquor in the center and Macro beer in the back. Craft beer is to the far right with the coolers on the wall. near the registers/exit.

The beer is separated by region so it is easy to find what you are there for quickly with Belgian/British/German and other european beer grouped together and American craft separated by brands. Not only are there East and West coast craft beers represented but they also have midwest brews like Dark Horse and Founders represented. They have a good amount of cooler space with a lot of craft stocked in there like Raspberry Barleywine from Berkshire and Farmhouse from Haverhill along with Stoudt's, Victory, Stone and others. They have the Nordic Brewers, Asian, French and Italian grouped together and the mead is on a separate shelf nearby.

The service would probably be 4.5 since I was greeted several times and asked if I needed anything, my friends were even handed some bottles not out on the shelves yet. The only issue I had which I partly blame myself since I left without reviewing my order was I was charged for two sixpacks of Red Racer IPA instead of 2 cans. Overall I can't complain though with the 15% discount on 6 or more items I pretty much came out ahead still and would have brought it to their attention if I had noticed sooner. I recommend Julio's highly to anyone in the area and if you want a great deal - some of the choices were more than 2 dollars less than PA prices - the prices are very reasonable bordering on inexpensive.

I will definitely swing by if I get back to the area anytime in the future.

Really nice selection with great staff. They frequently have beer tastings, hold beer releases and have a great rewards program to help reserve those hard to get beers.

Large liquor store with a good selection of beer. Had some good New England offerings and also had a nice selection of other beers from all over the country. Overall a top tier beer store. Prices are high though.

Yesterday was the second time I visited, and I spent a considerable amount of time browsing. I ended up leaving with a few beers that I hadn't seen much of in Western Mass too much: Logsdon and Jolly Pumpkin.

The staff seemed pretty knowledgable and were willing to offer suggestions and information about some of the newer brews they had in stock (one of which was Kung Fu Hobo from Smuttlabs), which I added to the mix six. Speaking of the mix six, as soon as you hit the 6 beer or more mark (any size... bomber, 750, 12 ounce bottle, etc), you automatically receive 15% off each beer. So if you were in there looking for something that only comes out once a year, or is pricey, that could be a good way to save some money. The best part is that the mix six doesn't all have to be the same size. Theoretically, you could buy 5 really cheap beers and one really expensive beer and still get the discount.

The organization of store could be a little better, but once you do a walk through, you can kind of see why certain beers are placed where they are; however, I have seen it done much better (Table and Vine of West Springfield for example).

Overall, it's a place that is definitely worth stopping if you are in the area in search of "good" beer.
