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.

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...
