Stopped here after visiting the Homebrewing Hobby store in Woburn. I've heard many things and finally decided to stop in since I was close. What suprised me most was how small the place was. It's really not any bigger than your average high school classroom, with a cooler in the back. However there is no space waisted. For the most part everything is reasonably well organized and most things seem to have a home. I'm being reasonable here, like I said the place is really small so there are some stacks of beer in the aisle and towards the back as well. I initially wasn't too impressed with the service, but they came through in the end. My wife and I walked in and we got "the head knod." I'm fine with that, but we spent a decent amount of time walking around and the 3 or so employees working didn't move from behind the register. However once I checked out, the man working the register informed me if I purchased one more beer I would recieve 10% off my purchase...which came to a free beer and $1.50 off my purchase. He said I could go grab one and while I did he left the register to get me a box for the beer I was buying. I ended up getting 6 Stone collaboration brews one of which was the More brown than Black IPA which I was stoaked about then I got a couple 4 packs of Hopponius Union. I was very happy to see they had that much for me to buy of Jack's Abby. HU isn't too easy to come by at the moment since they've switched distributers. The Selection is very good, plenty to choose from and it runs deep. We're not talking about just flagship/regular lineups from many breweries. There was plenty of special release beers that were on the shelves. Very good import selection of Belgian and other Euopean brews, Fantome, Mikkeller, Haandbraak, and the list goes on. Prices were fair, but everything seemed to be $1-$2 more than what I see at Granite Liquors, not thier fault, it's tough to compete with the Bearded Beer Guy. It's a bit of a hike for me, so I wouldn't go up there just to go, but I think I would stop by to see what they had again if I were in the area, it's certainly one of the better craft beer stores in MA.

Small store with a well selected and considerable beer section. Staple and sought after releases are all present and the staff if helpful but always willing to let you browse without intrusion. New releasesare posted on social media. This is my go to store in there area.
