3.7/5  rDev -19.6%

Definitely a decent beer store. Its not a huge liquor store so to see an entire aisle and several cases filled with craft beer is excellent. Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, Stone, Avery, Troegs, Great Divide, Bear Republic, Smuttynose, and some international beers as well.

I haven't seen many places to mix-a-six around here, so was excited to check that selection out. Its not huge, but fairly diverse. Definitely some not great items like old summer ales. Plus the bottles on the bottom shelves were very dusty. However, I was pleased with my 6-pack for $10.50.

One of the guys working came over and tried to give me some help. Normally I am happy to discuss beer with folks, but his attitude came across as rather condescending (perhaps because I am female) and he also came across as boastful about their mix-six selection which was decent, but not great.

However, that was just 1 interaction with 1 guy working there. I'd still go back for their selection, although maybe not their mix-a-six selection.

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.
