Place is a God send. I used to walk around this joint for hours just browsing. Tons of beer and booze and wines. Good snacks available also. Prices are the standard if not better than standard due to a sale, for Western Massachusetts. Great craft and import availability and perfect availability for Budweiser, Guinness, ...the lot. Bottle redemption area is a great place to hang out in too.

Since moving out to Western Mass I had been searching for a Craft Beer Heaven. Little did I know it was not too far from my home. I had found my Graceland. Maybe one of the best and largest beer selections I have ever seen. Not only American craft beers but also beers from around the world. Also great help as well from employees. I was there on a very busy Saturday and they had 2 employees talking/assisting customers with their selections as well as just talking beer. Very friendly staff. Pricing is how it is. You get what you pay for. The biggest problem I have with Table and Vine is, my wife hates me when I go there because I spend atleast 45 minutes deciding what I need/want.

Love It!

My personal standard against which all other beer stores are measured. They claim 1700 beers (most so far I have seen anywhere else claim possession of is 1500) and I believe them, all you have to do is look at the list on their kickbutt website and then visit the store for confirmation that they have all that stuff!

Big supermarket-size store, about 40% of which is wine, 20% beer and the rest spirits and food. The 20% that is for beer includes both sides of a seven foot tall, 75 foot long row of shelves, a hundred foot long wall of 12 and 24 cases, and a 50-75 foot long line of coolers, plus a big rack of singles, bombers and 750s.

For sheer selection they are hard to beat.

If you want to pick up a sixpack or twelver of just about anything nationally marketed, it's almost certainly here. You can also mix your own sixpacks.

A big attraction is their monthly sales, which offer twelvepacks for less than anywhere I know of. This past month I picked up twelvepacks of Sierra Nevada Torpedo ($13), Ipswich ale variety pack ($11), Sam Adams Summer variety pack ($12) and Guinness Extra Stout ($13).

You are not likely to have anyone come up and ask to help you, but that's fine with explorers like myself, and the checkout clerks are usually pleasant and helpful.

They also have smaller branch stores in Big Y supermarkets in Northampton and Greenfield. Same sales, but the selection is much more limited and more mainstream.

By far the best liquor store I have been to. Great wine selection, hard liquor and large beer selection. They also have a variety of gourmet cheeses. Best selection of local breweries, better than Liquors 44, tons of state breweries, out of state and foreign beers. If you are in the Northampton to Springfield area, this is the place to go! You wont be disappointed! I always go there ever since someone told me about it. I'm in the region 2-4 times a year and I always make a stop before coming home to Jersey.

Table and Vine, a great beer store but one that has sort of let me down more and more since I started going 2 years ago (have stopped in at least weekly). A re-review, previously I had given this store a 4.7 A+.

Two summers ago, Table and Vine was a place where you could pretty much find anything you wanted. Sculpin and good Founders releases would sit on the shelves for a reasonable amount of time. Alesmith IPA was around regularly. 120 Minute IPA sat on the shelves for months at a time. Now, you can't find anything that has any hype, rarity or fame behind it, on the shelves at least. If you even want a sniff at a Cantillon, KBS or even fresh Alesmith, you have to know someone who works there or call and get put on a list. For example: Alesmith IPA came in a few weeks ago and it never even made it to the public, the entire allotment was bought by employees or the owners. KBS was $9 a SINGLE for the past release ($21 per 4 pack at other local stores).

Anyways... If you want a huge selection of beer, head to Table and Vine. If you want something that is limited in the least, either call far in advance or go somewhere else. The overall selection of regular release beers is great. It is probably the best in Western MA and one of the best in the state. Some breweries that I see everytime I go here (Allagash, Avery, DFH, Seirra Nevada, Hoppin Frog, Lost Abbey, Victory, Troegs, Founders, Stone, Chimay, St Bernardus, Rodenbach, Dieu Du Ciel, Unibroue, Long Trail, all the locals and many others). This is a great store to go to for freshness as well, compared to other area stores. You can usually trust the IPAs and other hop filled beers to be fresh, so good quality.

The service can be hit or miss here. Usually during the day it is best, especially on weekends. Other times, 10 employees will walk right past you and it is up to you to ask any questions or stop them for service. Some of the employees know craft beer but there are so many walking around. My friends and I have often answered customer questions for employees of the store (Do you have Russian River? Dark Lord? Pliny?).

All in all, expect a well-priced, massive craft selection but also to see empty shelves above labels like Alesmith IPA, Breakfast Stout, Backwoods Bastard, Cantillon and things like that. It is worth asking if they have any in the back because "sometimes we keep limited releases off the shelves so that true craft beer fans can buy them." I might look spoiled complaining about such a store, which is probably better than most, but I know many people who think this store has gone down hill in the last two years. It seems the employees are more geared to helping themselves get rare beer than getting any to the customers. I am also surprised that they have not taken on a discounted mix-a-six program, like many other stores around the state have.
