Having just moved to the area, I've been searching for a good beer store and this one isn't too bad. Really a good selection for a convenience store (they tell me that's what it is ).
They sell brewing supplies, darts, liquor, food, coffee, and all kinds of goodies. It's a pretty neat store.

The layout is tight. Not a lot of room and everything is smashed in. That's true for mostly everything in the store.

As for the beer part, the selection is pretty good. They have lots of Stone, Southern Tier, Dogfish Head, etc. They also have lots of local stuff (The Tap Brewing, Narragansett Brewing, White Birch, and many more) . It's easy to go in once a week and see something new. Being able to get the hard to find or rare stuff is not easy. They don't get much of it and when they do it's way over priced. Last thing I asked about was DFH 120 minute, and they told me $15/bottle. I said no thanks. I really go to this place for the cheaper local stuff and the variety. They also offer discounts for certain quantities of bombers, which helps their higher prices seem lower.

Downsides to this place are that there is no organization, including the home-brew section. It's kind of messy and dirty.

The service isn't really too great. They seem to get cranky when I ask about a hard to get beer. They respond quickly with "No" or "yeah, it's all held" or "you missed that". It's shame too because I've spent some pretty good amounts here.

I've had some sandwiches which aren't too bad. Easy, fast lunch. Nothing great but it's good.

My only complaints are: prices, organization
Good things: selection (especially local brews), location, discounts, they allow holding of beers, and all the other goodies available.

I have to give the One Stop Market a 5 star review! Please keep in mind we didn't eat at the Grill Next Door, however, the atmosphere was very exciting because it was "Talk like a Pirate night," and they had patrons in costume cavorting outside - and inside, a Pirate contest with $500 in beer booty. So that was exciting!

On getting a great invite from my partner to harvest a bunch of lovely, red concord grapes, I knew that a proper stop to a brew shop was in order. No time to wait for supplies to ship on ebay. Having only brewed home cider before, which was easy peasy the cold yeast and balloon way, I knew that winemaking would present a bit of a challenge. I found the prices of the gear very reasonable, and the staff helpful in answering some simple brew questions. All I needed to get started was a couple of bottles, proper airlocks, and something other than Fleishman's yeast (And don't laugh, it DOES make a good cider!)

They were actually out of Champagne yeast - which is the one I would have preferred to get over wine yeast - because Champagne yeast IS also the most commonly recommended for cider. However, the fact that they were out of Champagne yeast confirmed to me that indeed their brewing materials are quite fresh.

The beer selection was impeccable , unlike other reviewers, I found the selections clearly marked with price. Also, the pick your own 6 pack for $9.69 had a GREAT selection area. I had just been to Port Wine and spirits in Newburyport who used to feature a $6.99 section, but that was iffy and only was available if a number of somewhat broken up 6 packs happened, to make up for damages. I'd just found out they'd discontinued the program. But I like build your own 6 pack sections a lot, because if they cost average the featured varieties together, you ultimately save more than buying six singles.

Would like to mention that even though this gem is a bit out of the way it is in fact a stone's throw from Salem NH and "America's Stonehenge," and "Victorian Park Family entertainment center" which has a full arcade, both of which sound like fun (we didn't have time to go to those on our excursion) but if you're even remotely interested in stopping up here for supplies, the potential exist to make it a day trip OR Beer Date....

Anyway , thanks One Stop for helping me make sure all these grapes won't go to waste! I will totally be coming back here!!!

I found this to be a fine place to acquire a wide variety of local and regional beers. They sell a large number of bombers which are crammed on a square shelf that you have to walk around to see everything. They allow mix and match 6-packs but you must get your selection from a specific shelf. However there were many choices available. There is a cooler for the macros mainly and a beer cave. I didn't try the food so I can't comment on it. They also had several choices of freshly brewed Green Mountain Coffee available. I think their selection was quite good for the area and a place I will go to again.

Stopped in to take a look after a disappointing few overpriced beers at the bar/restaurant next door - Grille Next Door.

Layout is odd. Racks of bombers basking under fluorescent lights and rotting while gathering dust. Made a passing look but no way was I getting anything from there. Lots of cooler space with a variety of craft offerings on 6 packs...didn't notice many 12 packs however. Was tough to maneuver around as there were case stacks in front of the coolers.

The biggest knock on this place is the lack of any pricing....I mean NOTHING was labeled with a price tag or shelf tag. W. T. F. What an insult to the customer & a sign of abject laziness of the staff.

I was furious & about to just leave but a 6 pack of Ithaca Flower Power in the cooler caught my eye...at the time of this review was a rare sighting of 1 of my fave beers. No pricing but I figured how much could it be? Well....$14 as it rang up. Most places charge maybe $11 around Boston & this was outright robbery. Told the cashier to keep it.

Will never return.
