I was in Greenfield for Cider Days and visited Ryan & Casey's for a cider tasting. The store maximizes its space and is very well organized. The back part of the store is where all the craft beer coolers and shelf beers (singles, six packs and cases) are stored. The front part has ciders, meads and spirits while to far side is wine.

The craft beer selection is very good with lots of local, national and international brands. It seems that if a beer is distributed to the area Ryan & Casey would carry it. Service was terrific. While holding a couple of bombers one of the clerks brought me a box to hold the beers. After browsing the aisle for several minutes I ended up filling the box! Luckily I didn't break the bank when it came time to purchase all the beers. Prices were about the same or a little lower for comparable beers in the Boston area.

The outside of the store is rather unassuming and looks like the kind of place that only sells Bud and Coors. Don't be fooled. Stop in and check out the terrific selection.

Drop by here every few weeks, and attended their great beer festival in mid-June.

The beer is in the back third of the store. A long U of coolers and a couple of enormous islands of stacked sixpacks, faced on the other side by a very long rack of bombers and 750s.

Excellent selection, better than Liquor 44 in the bigger town of Northampton or the college town of Amherst, with the possible exception of the latter's Spirit Haus. . R&C clearly puts considerable effort into having a selection which most would find impressive. Prices are average with some good sales and the best price on local bombers in the entire Pioneer valley.

Easy to make a mixed six if you either ask at the counter for an empty carton, bring your own or scrounge one from the partials atop the islands or in the coolers. Easy too to browse since the beer section is isolated from the main foot traffic, though it can get cramped in the narrow aisles if more than one or two browsers are active, and the beer section is evidently on the Main Employee Express Route from the front of the store to the storage room behind the beer and back.

Go for the selection, and enjoy!

I used to live just across the street from here 5 years ago.
The selection then was better than most places are today.
This place sets the bar pretty high.
The only down side is that they are always playing country music in there.
IMHO this is a Beer Mecca.
