If I may be allowed a mixed-religious metaphor, this place is a Mecca for me as well as being a veritable Holy Grail for any lover of fine alcoholic beverages. The micro selection is fantastic, arranged in alphabetical order from Abita and Alesmith at one end to Weyerbacher and Wolaver's at the other end. In between is just about anything and everything available in Massachusetts.
Next door to the Micro aisle is the Import aisle. This aisle features only high-quality imports (no Heineken or Mexican beer here--they're in the macro aisle). It's arranged by country, starting with a generous Belgian selection (every Trappist besides Westy, many lambics, gueze, and a boatload more). There is also a British section, a decent selection of German beer, as well as a large selection of Unibroue from Quebec.
For anyone who likes to enjoy cheese with their beer, there is a fantastic selection of gourmet cheeses. The wine selection is massive and the liquor selection seems adequate to this beer-drinker.
Do yourself a favor and check out Table and Vine's website. It features a comprehensive list (frequently updated) of every beer currently in-stock. That will give you an idea of the size of T & V's inventory. They even allow you to place an order on-line and then pick it up when you're in the store. Very helpful if you've traveled a long way in order to get specific beers. I e-mailed the store about their dwindling Rochefort stock and a manager e-mailed me back when more Rochefort arrived, offering to set aside for me entire cases of Rochefort 8 and 10! Unfortunately I had already moved down to Texas at that point, and was therefore unable to secure my Rochefort. That's not the point, however. The point is that the service is quite outstanding.

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.
