Stopped by this place on the way to visit a friend near the RI border. Knew it had an A+ rating so figured it would be something special. To be honest, it's really not. It's possible that it's really exceptional for the area but I can't comment on that, as I am from the North Shore area and have access to many fine places within a 30 minute drive.

This store was fairly small and seemed a little run-down and plain. Nothing glaringly bad but it just seemed like it hadn't been updated in many years.

The beer is on one side of a single mid-sized aisle. There are coolers in the back and on the right side as well. Nothing really special, and honestly a lot of REALLY old stuff. There were plenty of well-worn and dusty bottles that were dated 2007-2008. I found a few gems to take home and try (2007 Peche Mortel, 2008 Mephistopheles, etc) but otherwise it was pretty standard. I doubt their selection changes much due to the age of the bottles available. Decent selection of New England stuff but nothing really special or out of the ordinary.

Prices were pretty standard, nothing special. 10% off 6+ which was decent as well.

Overall not a terrible place but I don't think I'd ever be back even if it were close to me.

I just went to Muckey's for the first time last night, and I'm sold. Jay (their beer buyer, guru, and the spirit of the place) is incredibly knowledgeable, and lead me to a handful of sours that I've never tried, or even heard of. I was able to pick up a Founders KBS, and a Lost Abby Red Hoppy, both of which I can't find anywhere else on the Southcoast. Jay and one other employee helped me for at least 30 minutes- they clearly take pleasure and pride in helping beer enthusiasts.

I traveled from New Bedford (~25 minute drive), and I will do it again!

This is a great stand alone store on rt. 44. They have a smaller selection but it is very good. The staff is great and very helpful. Jay, the beer guy, is very helpful and always willing to talk about beer and make recommendations. They get limited stuff and usually keep it in the back so you have to ask. They post on Facebook when they get limited beers. The prices are fair and they allow you to buy singles.

Great selection of Beers! On my first visit I was impressed with the offerings for each style of beer, not just more lines from the same brewery.

Good business starts with ownership and it is evident here. Service is the highlight, Jay is the beerman and he knows what I'm asking about when I have question. Maybe most important to me they are quick to offer ordering.

Prices also seem to be very reasonable always appreciated.

I walk in and say "What's new?' and there is always something interesting. And Jay always knows what my wife will like. Priceless! There are some selections you have to be fast about getting but I guess that is true for any establishment with a reputation like Muckey's. But than again, the fun is in the hunt. I have been known to be found cruising the back of the cooler, just to see what might be buried therein. They will order anything that you may be looking for or at least try to order it.

Muckey's isn't too far up from Debuca's in Raynham. A smaller place, but they have a good selection of craft, both refrigerated and non. They have been very helpful when I've called to have them order me beers I cannot typically find around me. Haven't spoken to any staff during my visits, however.
