I finally made it down to Julio's this morning. First off, the place is enormous, I strolled around the place for a few in search of the beer section but once I spotted the beer, I paid no attention to what else was around.

They have a nice selection of imports in a long row and the microbrews are kind of scattered around in an odd set up. I found myself walking around the section a few times to see if there were any hidden beers I missed. It also seemed like they were all over the place with stock, some beers boxes were laying on the ground and some of the bottles looked like they have been there for a while (i.e. had dust on them). Besides the minor appearance flaws, this place has such a great selection that I had to pull myself out of there so I didn't spend all of my money. The best part was at the checkout where they take 15% off each bottle when you buy more than 6, which should be a given.

Overall, this is a great place that I will put in my schedule to make the 45 min drive at least once a month to stock up on some hard to finds. (1,057 characters)

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. (1,262 characters)
