I finally made it out to Julio's, and while I'm glad I did, I'm disappointed that it took me so long to make the trip. There's certainly an impressive beer selection, with several aisles of six packs and singles as well as a large area at the rear of the store where cases are located. There are a couple of fridges used for beer - these house some singles and growlers from BBC and Opa Opa, among others - but the vast majority of the beer is stored at room temperature. Singles were available (at a premium) for most of the beers available in sixers, but the higher prices are mitigated somewhat by a 15% discount when buying at least 6 bottles at a time. Selection covered a lot of NE breweries, plus many of the larger outfits that distribute into MA - Stone, DFH, Lost Abbey, Alesmith, Founders, etc. There were plenty of foreign beers too, with good selections from the UK, Belgium, Germany, and Canada. Vintage selections were clearly marked as well - there were several from DFH from ~2008 available during my visit. Prices overall are quite good relative to other local bottleshops. Service was alright. I was asked if I needed help once and the staff was pleasant to speak with. Although it's a little out of the way for me, I'll definitely be back.

How have I not reviewed this place until now?? Without a doubt the best craft beer store in central Massachusetts, by both volume and quality. Big emphasis on local breweries. Over the years they’ve reduced the European selection because it was collecting dust but they’ve expanded the selection of other crafty alcoholic beverages. Always fun to come in and spend an hour or two poring over their extensive and well-organized selection. Great prices, too!

Great place. Liquor store with an impressive craft beers offering. Plus international beers. Always find something good and they sell singles. Prices are also good . Recent exampl, bought a Toppling Goliath Citra double dry hopped Pseudo Sue at Craft beer cellar for $16.99 ( 4.5+ BA rating). Julios price was $11.99. Beers are sorted by region. Highly recommended and now my @1 go to place

I can't say enough good things about Julio's! When I started working at Tufts in Grafton in 2001 and a colleague told me about the amazing beer selection at this place in Westborough, i had to check it out. A couple years later, I moved to Westborough and I was in heaven! Since then, we've moved back to MN, and although there are some decent packy's (liquor stores) here in MN, there is only 1 Julio's. My kids miss the free candy they would get from the checkout clerk's, and i miss everything about it!

Calling Julio's a liquor store doesn't really do it justice. Julio's has an amazing selection of beer, wine, spirits, cheese, cigars, hot sauce, and I'm sure other things I can't remember. Julio's staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the product so don't hesitate to ask about very specific items or good pairings with an item. Aside from all of that, I believe they also host a podcast at the store every once and a while which may be intriguing if you're interested in booze talk.

One of the best beer stores I have ever been to. Incredible selection. 15% discount for buying 6 or more singles. Tim is the beer manager and was generous with his time talking beer and showing me what not to miss. Worth 30 minute drive out of Boston.

Really nice selection with great staff. They frequently have beer tastings, hold beer releases and have a great rewards program to help reserve those hard to get beers.

Large liquor store with a good selection of beer. Had some good New England offerings and also had a nice selection of other beers from all over the country. Overall a top tier beer store. Prices are high though.

Yesterday was the second time I visited, and I spent a considerable amount of time browsing. I ended up leaving with a few beers that I hadn't seen much of in Western Mass too much: Logsdon and Jolly Pumpkin.

The staff seemed pretty knowledgable and were willing to offer suggestions and information about some of the newer brews they had in stock (one of which was Kung Fu Hobo from Smuttlabs), which I added to the mix six. Speaking of the mix six, as soon as you hit the 6 beer or more mark (any size... bomber, 750, 12 ounce bottle, etc), you automatically receive 15% off each beer. So if you were in there looking for something that only comes out once a year, or is pricey, that could be a good way to save some money. The best part is that the mix six doesn't all have to be the same size. Theoretically, you could buy 5 really cheap beers and one really expensive beer and still get the discount.

The organization of store could be a little better, but once you do a walk through, you can kind of see why certain beers are placed where they are; however, I have seen it done much better (Table and Vine of West Springfield for example).

Overall, it's a place that is definitely worth stopping if you are in the area in search of "good" beer.
