Visited New England Wine & Spirits for the first time today. Driving through the area and according to th DFH brew finder this place carried their WWS that I can't get in New Hampshire. It was there as well as other beers I have only dreamed of finding in my area. The atmosphere was pretty laid back and quiet too. The service was pleasant and very helpful. The selection of beer was probably the most extensive I have ever seen though the quantity of selection was not. There is some real high quality beers for sale here! The prices seemed to be on par with what I can find in the Concord/Manchester area of NH. Lucky for me my brother-in-law lives nearby so I plan on stopping by whenever we pass by to visit!

Visiting from Florida and stopped in to see if I could find something that is not available in S Florida....I know, that's easy to accomplish. I found a lot of variety and I picked up several locals that I obviously couldn't get at home but also several beers that are not available south of Orlando. Have to agree with others on price. I paid $21 for a 22oz Hoppin Frog oak aged Boris. That seemed a little pricey even after I drank it...mmm!

Anyways....I thought Leary's had more overall variety but this place had some harder to find beers...at least for me.

New England wine and spirits is now the best place around the seacoast to find beer. Of course, just being in Massachusetts they have an advantage over NH stores in selection.

I just found beers from Norway i was looking for, in preparation, for am upcoming trip. They had bottles from both known high quality craft Norway breweries.

Large and growing selection. Helpful staff. A real focus on craft beer. Although I love Learys, also in town, as I have been going there for 30 years, New England is the new beer king in town.

The wine selection did not seem too shabby either.

I easily give NE Wine & Spirits an A to an A+ for their beer selection...I have found beers here that no one else had.
Unfortunately, as great as the selection is, the prices in this shop can be as much as 40-45 percent higher on certain beers than other local stores. It certainly pays to shop around.
A lot of beers have no prices....that should be a warning sign right there.

Don't get me wrong...the staff is friendly.
All I am saying is hard to get beers receive hard to get prices. Just as an example...store "A" charged me $5 for one bottle of Founders KBS when it came out. This store charged me $8. Just one example!
I realize that certain hard to get items may cost a little more. But...that is a significant difference.

They are the only store around that had a great Finnish beer. Huvila Arctic Circle Ale. Cannot wait to get that again!

They have weekly beer tastings....which is a plus. I just cannot get over the price gouging.
Will return to shop, but will watch the prices very carefully.
