This place is great. It's a liquor emporium with beer in the back, but the selection is decent with chilled cases and 6 packs, but also a large section of singles to mix a six for 10% off. On my last trip I picked up 2 six-packs for just under $20 total. This included:

1 lone SN Summerfest (apparently the only in the store)
Abita strawberry
Dogfish HEad Peche
Dead Guy Ale
Mama's Yella Pils
Victory's Hop Devil
And some cheap local stuff.

I've always had good luck there, reasonable prices, good selection. On my last visit it was a little late on a weeknight and the singles area of beer was kind of picked through and messy but not bad.
EDIT 6/18/09: I think it depends when you go there. Another trip proved sparse with an unorganized beer selection and not what I was looking for. But, it's a solid local place with some unusual brews and a decent selection from Belgium, Germany etc.

Stopped in based on reviews from BA. Selection was good, but certainly not extensive, I've seen better selections in some supermarkets. Prices were on the high end and the specials advertised on their website were not the same as those on the shelves.

Help was non existent - I was in the beer aisles for about twenty minutes and no one offered any assistance.

Glad that I did not have to drive too far off the highway to C Gasbarro's.

Several hundred craft beers, offering a Mix-A-Six discount. Beers are organized by region on the shelves.

There are several rare and limited beers along with the mainstream craft styles.

New beers are brought in and the selection is developing. The selection varies from the east coast to west coast, along with an extensive belgian (abbey and trappists), german, and western europe beer selection.

There are extensive sales during holidays for breweries such as Leinenkugel, Cisco, Wachusett, Blue Moon, Brooklyn, Shocktop.

A large liquor store on Route 6 where Carpet Giant used to be. Beer is all the way in the back. They offer case pricing on some stuff. Good selection in the coolers, but most of the "good" stuff is out on shelves.

Good representation of many styles and sizes, but perhaps there are some holes. (Light on German hefe's, for instance)

Last time I was here, I did come away with a bottle of Brookyln Soracci and Samuel Adams Stony Brook Red.

They also have a selection of glassware to choose from.

I stopped by a couple of days ago for the first time and found a craft beer selection better than I was expecting. They had a nice selection of craft & imports there. They had 12 packs of Dale's Pale Ale which I've never seen before. I also found a couple of bottles of Fuller's Vintage Ale from 2007 which I promptly snagged.

Another place to check out for hidden gems for sure. They did have a mix-a-six deal but am not sure if they allow large bottles to be a part of that or not. I didn't notice any employees around in the beer section during my 20 minute visit.

I find myself going here a lot more lately. As previous reviewers have noted their beer selection has gotten much better over the past year. I was there this weekend and found Lagunitas Sumpin' Sumpin', which has been very hard for me to find at other stores. They have a large selection of Belgians, Germans, etc. There is a large cooler in the back that is also a walk-in. You'll find some of the larger craft breweries like Harpoon (Leviathon too), Smuttynose, Victory and Brooklyn in the coolers.
I often take advantage of their mix-a-six program. 10% off if you get six.
The employees are very helpful though I don't deal with them much except while at the register.

New review. Not the cheapest, not the best selection, a decent mix of NE favorites, a few national craft brands like Stone and DFH, and some Belgians. Dusty, old, out of date beer abounds, from the shelf to the cooler. DO NOT buy anything without verifying its age. You can find some cool vintage stuff, some stuff is way overpriced but other beers are reasonable. It seems like they use the 'No MA sales tax' as an excuse to add 20% to the bottom line on a lot of the beers.

They mislabel prices too- you gotta be on your toes at this place.
