I've been to this Curtis Liquors location at least three to four times during the past few years with my most recent visit this past Labor Day Weekend.

The store is really big with rows of liquors, wines, beer, etc. There is one long row of warm craft beers on the shelves. I like the "Support Your Local Brews" sign.

No question about it, the beer selection is extensive. Highlights include beers from Heavy Seas, Lagunitas, Offshore, DFH, White Birch, Haverill, Stone, Port Brewing, Great Divide, Southern Tier, Rogue, Southern Tier and so on. Most of all the "big name" american craft breweries are represented. Belgian staples like Bernardus, Westmalle, Chimay and Trappistes Rochefort are available too.

I've always found the pricing to be reasonable and competitive. I noticed some good deals recently like $17 for a 30 pack of PBR and $13 for a 12 pack of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

I think the service here is average and this is based on several interactions with different employees. I remember one time having my purchase critiqued by the guy that was ringing up my sale, which was rather annoying.

This is a great store. Probably one of the greatest on the South Shore. They have a huge selection of both import and US micros and the selection is growing. A lot of brewers represented here including Victory, Stone, Rogue, Great Divide, DFH, Brooklyn, Southampton, Ommegang, Southern Tier, AleSmith, and pretty much all New England micros. There are about 4 or 5 coolers with craft brews and a long shelf of bombers as well as a shorter shelf of imports. In the corner of the store, there are a crazy amount of cases of New England brews. A couple Harpoon 100 Barrel Series were back there too. I regret not picking up the Old Ale while I had the chance.

I had to ask for some help, but they were ready to help with anything. Mike is the main beer guy and he orders all the imports and micros. The prices were very fair and they also let you break 6-packs with 10% off of each bottle.

Compared to the Curtis in Cohasset, the Weymouth store has a much better selection and better quality. There were a couple guys going through all the wine racks and checking bottles as well as dusting, so I can imagine they do the same with the beer because it was all very clean. Definitely a great stop to make even if you aren't in the area.

Update: this store really went south. I visited again on 1/18/13. So much old and expired beer, everything is covered in dust, and most beer isn't organized well. The selection is still pretty good but when most of it is past date, what's the point? The guy who was stocking craft beer was on his cell phone on a personal call and didn't seem to care about the beer or people. If you're looking for a new place to buy craft beer, look elsewhere.

I live right around the corner from Curtis and stop by every now and then to see what's new or on sale. It's mostly a wine store, but they do have a pretty good selection of craft and specialty beers, but really nothing out of the ordinary. I've been in this store at least 100 times and have never been asked if I needed any help, not that I need any, but I just realized it and found it strange. Prices are about average and if nothing good is on sale, I'll go home empty handed and stop by Granite a few miles away.
