Since my buddy moved up to RI for his job, this has become his local store. The large parking lot overlooks the wide, windowed storefront. Entering, the liquor begins to the immediate right, while the beer begins to the immediate left. I took a brief gander at the selection of rye whiskey and then turned left to wander through the aisles of bottled beer. Restraint was my motto until I got to the bank of coolers along the back left wall, which were filled with CANs that I had not added to my CANQuest (TM) and I was off and running. The woman at the checkout smiled in amusement and I wept for what PA's ridiculous laws prevent us from having.

This place is a mixed bag. They have a fairly large selection of 12 packs, including mixed boxes from Smuttynose, Flying Dog, etc. Not an overly long shelf for single bottles, but you'll probably find what you're looking for.
I've had great luck here, grabbing a 24oz Sierra Nevada Harvest Ale for $6. I've also found some head-scratchers, like multiple six packs of Rogue Santa's Private Reserve in the cooler in July. Some pricing is out of whack, including the 6 pack of Stone IPA for $16, but that may not be entirely the store's fault.
This is probably the largest beer selection in this area of Warwick, but don't go out of your way to go there.

I didn't know what the hell to expect from here passing it, but I stopped in for the hell of it. Liquor as far as the eye can see, with one aisle for six packs of beer, and one of bombers. Nothing really amazing in the six pack aisle, but the bombers....wow. My eye was drawn to fresh Sculpin, along with a ton of Belgians (found some Fantome which was awesome, as well as Rodenbach), and mainly northeast locals. They had a bunch of Cisco, including Lady of the Woods, so that was great. The prices were really good, with the Sculpin being a dollar cheaper a bottle than at Nikki's. It seemed to me like Nikki's had more of a selection of smaller craft, while Haxton's had more of the larger craft brands, but they had more variety within the brewery. Service was OK, as the cashier was very friendly, but most employees ignored me on the floor. It's all good, I enjoyed what I got here and would be back if I was going back to Rhode Island any time soon.
