The two women who run this place should be given medals of honor for beer advocacy. A relatively small shop but loaded with an abundant amount of styles divided into their respective groups. If you are looking for a place to go and talk beer before you pick anything out this is a good choice. Tucked right next to a Starbucks this place offers you a ton of selections with the owners constantly milling about. They have only been open for five months but from talking to them they don't see an end in sight. Cheers to the owners. We need more beer stores like this.

Okay, this place is awesome. I've only ever seen another place with close to the same selection. But I've never been to a dedicated craft beer store, and here are The Cellar's two huge advantages:

1) The staff. I think there were three or four people working on Friday afternoon. All of them exhibited the epitome of friendliness, knowledge, and willingness to help! I am not a beer dunce, but living in CT there are definitely plenty of breweries that we don't share with MA. One the workers greeted my friend and I and pretty much acted as our private guide for close to an hour.

2) You can get anything (yes, ANYTHING) in singles. Best of all is that the prices were completely in line with a typical large liquor store, that is to say perfectly fair.

One cool thing is how they set up the store. You essentially walk into the New England section, and move into the Southeast, Midwest, then West Coast. The back half of the store is all international, and they really do have GOOD international stuff.

Well worth the visit. Get there.

In from California on a business trip. Always looking for local beers in cans (for my collection) that I can't get back home. Great selection with the ability to get singles of any beer. The guys in the store were extremely helpful. I would suggest Craft Beer Cellar to any beer lover even if your not a can collector like I am.

You can't beat a store solely devoted to great beer. It is a small store but it's like a candy shop for beer geeks. The selection is great and they get all the limited release beers. The staff is very helpful and share the passion for great beer. Their prices are good and you can buy singles of any beer in the store which I love.
