vibe: 3.75 | quality: 4 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.75

OK atmosphere: basically a large wine and spirits store.

Shelves seemed to be stocked and cared for regularly; the only old dates I saw were on bottles for which it is entirely appropriate (e.g. Belgians).

I had good experiences with three different staff, all of whom were friendly and knowledgeable.

The selection is near as good as I have seen, with tons of local brews, but also a great selection of craft from throughout the US, and a massive amount of imports. They had two full long aisles of nothing but craft brew, and stacks of cases available (of good stuff, too).

Prices were exactly what I'm used to for craft: no gouging noticed, but no bargains, either.

This is so much better than what I have in SE CT. Then again, that's to be expected. Chances are they've got what you need, and if it's a bit rarer or limited distribution, they've got a good chance of getting it in; keeping it, or not selling out within hours, is another story entirely.

The selection is awesome here no doubt, BUT the attitude staff gives off left a sour taste in my mouth lately. I was always a regular here but lately it seems everything on the shelf is ridiculous out of date. Its a shame for those said reasons I have stopped shopping here, I know I am not the first person here to feel the same way. I found several six packs of certain IPAs that were over a year old, that is just not called for

Definitely the best selection in the area for beer/cider/mead. A solid stock of excellent imports and sours. Hard to get bottles are still hard to get as the traffic here is heavy and things tend to sell out quick.
