Have visited this place a few times as it's just a slight detour on my way home from work.

Tiny place located next to a Shaw's. Several staff walking around asking customers for help. Asked if they had a particular beer, one guy spent 5 minutes on his I-phone then responded "i don't think so". OK....

Lots of geek beers, but not nearly enough are refrigerated (though one of the staffers stated they were looking to expand their fridges). Berkshire bombers weren't in the coolers, which is inexcusable in my book.

Each time I've been here I have had an issue with the pricing. Either the bottle/package wasn't marked or the shelf wasn't. I don't have 10 minutes on each beer to track down a staffer to tell me that beer is too expensive anyway. On that subject, prices are a bit high across the board. Never noticed any sales or specials either.

Being that it's a small place, there isn't much room for 12 packs and cases. Most space is dedicated to 6-packs and bombers.

I appreciate what these guys are going for, but it's too much of a "beer boutique" for me.

Been here a few times since my initial review and need to up the service score to a 5. People here are extremely friendly and service - oriented, especially the owner - manager..Kamal. Always quick to engage the customer and friendly. Too many unrefridged beers tho.

I refer to Redstone as the best liquor store in the state and I don't dub that title lightly. The beer selection is incredible without leaving out the regular mass produced stuff. Prices are good. The new store is unbelievable. They always seem to get the special release stuff. It's just an extremely well curated store with a great social media presence.

You walk in to some of the most knowledgeable staff ever. A huge selection, with good prices to start and then they let you know if you purchase 6 single bottles big or little you get 10% off or 12 you get 15%. Staff is friendly, helpful, and very enthusiastic about beer. One of if not the best beer store I have been in. Nothing bad to say.
