We've been shopping here for some time and it keeps getting better. Great selection and they have really stepped up their craft game.
They have organized the beer by geography, allocated a lot more space and continually expand their mix-a-six program.
The service is always great and the coolers well stocked.

One of the better craft beer providers in RI--the store is organized loosely by style with several shelved sections for four and six packs. There is also a long double-sided shelf with singles. The selection seems to change a lot, I've found several rare beers there. I've also gotten great assistance from the staff, both in store and over the phone. They'll set things aside if you're coming in for it, they'll check to see if something is in stock, and they'll try to order things where possible.
This is a large liquor store, and not just a craft beer store. With that in mind, not all of the staff are well-versed in craft beer.
On the whole, I think this is a great store, and count it in the top three that I rely on for craft beer selection in RI.

Gan's is a good liquor store with reasonable prices on both beer and wine. The beer selection is good and constantly improving. They have large format bottles on a lot of interesting craft beers that you don't see many places. They will carry some beers from the brewers, but not all, which I find interesting. For example they may have Resin, The Crisp and 3 Beans from SixPoint, but not Righteous, Bengali Tiger etc.
If you're looking to try a bunch of different beers, they allow anything to get broken up into singles. Staff is helpful, mostly knowledgeable and friendly. If you're looking to find some interesting stuff that is hard to find in RI, this is a good place to start.

Well, I've been a regular at this place for about a year now, since it's near my college. By far in the area it is my favorite, there is no competition whatsoever. Very nice people, very large selection of individual bottles, and ANYTHING in a six pack is able to be broken up. My only problem lies in that there seems to be a fair amount of expired stuff on the mix-a-six rack. Not entirely sure why, maybe the selection is too large or the demand is just not enough. Either way, their selection is excellent in beer, and pretty good in wine, more than decent in whiskey (they carry hard to find stuff around here like Paddy's). Anyways, a far above average store, especially for the beer lover. Decent prices, very nice people, and a lot of times you can get some pint glasses with your mix a six or other small deals going on. They still have a couple of bottles of Dogfish Head World Wide Stout left, grab it before it goes away!

I M Gan has continued to grow their craft beer/import selection. I was in there tonight and picked up a six of the Noble Pils, which I read in a forum that hasn't made it everywhere yet. They have great craft brew from Cali to Colorado to the local New England brewers. I picked up three of the Sierra Nevada Southern Hemispheres the last time I was there before this. I have been other places since and have not seen them since. When ever I mix a six, which is at a 15% discount, cheaper than most package stores around, the cashier/employees always gives his/her opinion on my selection which is much appreciated because it is nice to hear others reviews, especially on something I am trying for the first time. The pricing is very competitive and the selection is great.
