I used to live in Weymouth, right down the street from here for about a year or so and it was my standby place. I was pretty new into beer and they had one of those mix-a-six locations on an end-cap and I was a fan. The selection wasn't huge, but decent when I went. Had mostly the heavy hitter New England Products with and general crowd pleasers. I came by today cause I was in the area and was most impressed. The selection has seriously increased. They went from a cooler and a few end caps to adding a whole aisle and doubled the selection on that mix a six end cap. They have good craft beer from all over the country, all the great expected brews like Stone, Rogue, Founders, Avery, Anchor Steam and many many more and quite a few selections from each brew. Their import selection increased big time. Having great stuff like Hobgoblin, Chimay, Delerium Tremmons, Samuel Smith, and the list continues. The prices were pretty reasonable, I've found some of their stuff cheaper at other places, but some of there other stuff was pretty cheap too. I gotta say I was impressed how neat the beer aisle was, everything was perfectly lined up as if a perfectionist set it up. I ended up just going with a mix a six today and there was a lot of good stuff in there. They had Troeg's, Samuel Smith, Great Divide, Anchor Steam, Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams, Boulder, Avery and many more. A little pricy $10.50 for it, but the selection is better than at most places. The service was pretty good too, the main worker I saw there today saw me strolling around for a while (I didn't expect to be there as long as I did) and asked if I needed any help and I explained to him I haven't been there in a few years and couldn't believe how much the beer selection expanded. He said they've really tried hard to get more beer there and if I had trouble finding anything than they can generally try to order it. I thought that was some pretty good customer service.

This is now my number one place to go. Customrer service gets a 6/5

This store has an incredible selection. Period. Unlike bigger liquor stores, the beer section (a third of the store) is not littered with mass produced beers. If you want a serious look at what the craft beer industry offers, visiting Granite Liquors is a must.

Love that the rare release section limits purchases to one or two so really anyone wanting to access limited and unusual beers is able to. John is extremely knowledgeable and super helpful if you can catch him.

Prices are consistent with the market. This is my go to beer store.

Fantastic beer guy, his recommendations have been stellar. Look for the beard for advice on beer. I stop by whenever I'm in town. Love the 1 per person shelf in the back. Impressive selection of sours and limited release beers. New England regional beers are well represented, as are imports.

This is probably my favorite liquor store in the Boston area. I live in southie and typically take a long lunch on Friday to stock up for the weekend. Fantastic beer selection. The beer manager knows his stuff and will give great recommendations. I usually hit up their limited release 'one per customer' shelf first as it usually has some hard to find beers.

I try and visit this store weekly. It is crunched into a plaza next to shaws. They have a great selection and very large compared to the size of the store. They get limited releases and usually limit purchases to 1 or 2 bottles each to share the love. The staff is not very helpful which might be disappointing for some. However, I have not met their beer manager who I hear is a great guy and very knowledgable. Prices are typically reasonable.
