Great little barely known place in the middle of nowhere, MA, but don't let that fool you. They have a good selection of great beers. Not a huge selection, as they are geared more for wines, but they do have a good selection. The beer they do have is great. Everything from imports from Belgium, Germany, U.K. and even some of the Baltic region beers, to many different micro brews from the U.S. and Canada. They also make sure they carry all the local beers, which is helpful. And my favorite that I wish more stores would do, mix and match 6-packs with 10% off AND that includes ANY beer (so you can break down other 6-packs). Also because they're not as well known as some of the bigger places, they will sometimes have an aged or gem of a find sitting on the shelf.

They often get some of the specialty releases, but not all. When they come in they tend to go quickly though. They also have tastings every couple weeks. Not regularly, but maybe once a month. Along with that they organize beer dinners which is also good to have.

They are also very nice and helpful. Most of the time they can answer just about any question you have, reserve a special beer for you, or even help with selection. The prices are pretty good overall with that as well.

Overall a great little store to stop in at when you can. It's hard to find but well worth it.
