A pretty large store, which unfortunately is mostly devoted to wine and liquor. With that said, there are about ten cooler doors dedicated to beer; about five of which are for craft brews. Selection consists of: about four or five DFH's, full line of Wolaver's, full line of Magic Hat, full line of Sierra Nevada, full line of Ipswich, a few Newport Storms, a few Paper City, full line of Anchor, full line of Harpoon, full line of Long Trail, full line of Sam Adams, full line of Flying Dog, and a few other local odds and ends. In addition to the cooler area, this packy also offers a few warm belgian styles, which is hard to find in this neck of the woods, that includes: Ommegang, Unibroue, Chimay, Corsendonk, La Troubadour, Oerbier, Duvel, etc. There are also a few harpoon limited releases, Rogue 22's, and a couple other bombers. Sadly, this warm space takes up only about three feet of one shelf. The prices in this store are borderline expensive and the staff isn't the most knowledgeable when it comes to craft beer. This place takes the runner-up trophy to Colchester's other packy Broadway, but offers a few different brews that Broadway doesn't offer. Nothing really to make a trip for, but not a huge disappointment for the locals either.
