There are three stores, in Northampton, Amherst and Holyoke. Pretty much the same selection at each. Wine dominates, but about a quarter of each store is devoted to beer.

Basically this description applies to all the stores: fifty to a hundred feet of six foot high multi-shelf racks of sixpacks and larger singles, around a hundred feet of coolers and a 75 foot long wall of cases with stacks of twelvepacks in front. Clearly they mean beer business.

Not likely to get anyone asking to help you, but that's just fine with browsers who already have some idea of what they are looking for. The checkout clerks are fast, efficient and reasonably friendly.

A totally satisfactory selection of the nationally distributeds and popular locals, with a few good sales. Last month they featured Cisco of Nantucket Island, including a selection of four or five different at only $16.50 a twelver!

Better yet, their regular prices on some items are the lowest in the region. Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout or Imperial Stout for $8.49 a fourpack? No one I have seen yet beats that!

Decent bomber and 750 selection. The really advanced imbiber may be left wanting. But everyone else will likely find something worthwhile.

Was in town (8/13/11) and had originally planned to go down to Table & Vine, but plans changed and I had 20 mins to hit up a beer store. I hopped on BA and found this place right around the corner from where we were and decided to check it out.

Pretty good stuff, all around. Not the biggest selection, but a great regional stash of MA/New England beers. Found all of the Element beers I was looking for, 21st Amendment, Boulder Hazed cans, Pretty Things, Grand Teton, some so-so Goose Island stuff, Avery Maharaja (score), Sculpin (score), Firestone Walker (a boat-load of Parabola 2011, Double Jack and Rsv Porter) and St-Bernardus Abt 12.

Their Belgian selection was basically Chimay, Duvel, St-Bernardus Abt 12 and a couple breweries I've never heard of but didn't look good. Didn't see any other "craft imports."

Big stacks of "sale" 12'ers (Stella, Heineken, etc but also Butternuts and some other micros like Otter Creek).

Worth a look if you're in town. I found a lot of the things I was looking for, but I was searching for NE beers that I can't get in VT. Someone already mentioned this, but I like how the price tags have the Case, X-pack and Single prices all printed on them. Really helpful.

Also, the guy at the counter was super nice, helpful and quick since I was in a hurry.

Your average liquor store, decent selection of local breweries, some out of state beers and foreign bottles. they have recycling centers inside. Great idea! Plenty of parking, service is helpful and place is well organized. Sometimes a little disappointing to not find a bigger selection of some of the close by local breweries on their shelves. GeeZ, they want me to write so much before i can click on review. Yeah, so selection of beers is decent, i dont care for anything else they have there so I never checked.
