I swung by here while doing Xmas shopping. From the outside it looks small and you would think that there would not be much of a selection. From the front it appears to cater more to wine drinkers.
However, once in - the entire back section is devoted to beers. Decent size of freezers that are packed with your typical beer, however - decent amount of local breweries are included (Hagic Hat, Wachusett, Long Trail, Naragansett, Offshore) as well as Brooklyn, Samuel Smith, Dogfish, and a few others. Bomber section is pretty decent as well. Stone, Rogue, Ommegang, Southern Tier are all well stocked, just to name a few.
I will vertianly be visiting again soon!

For a small store this one does a great job with selection. If you don't see what you want on the shelf (back right corner of the store) the key is who you ask for help. You want to talk with Jeff he's the beer fan (and the one who is responsible for the selection) he'll try to get you what you want and is happy to order.

If he's not there, you're kind of screwed, unless of course it's on the shelf. The older couple will give you a "we have so many as it is I'm sure you can find something else to buy" - line.

The pricing can be a bit on the high side (some decent values though on the St. Bernardus Abt 12 for example). No price breaks for cases (at least according to the older couple). Not a place for big beer hauls but a good one for a bottle or two.

For a suburban packy in a mall with a Shaw's supermarket and a Starbucks, this place has an amazing selection. Ommegang, Dogfish, Founders, Stone, Brooklyn, and a good number of Belgians are routinely stocked here, although the last mostly come in the 22 oz bottle variety. Singles of Rochefort, though a little pricey. I've even been able to get Old Rasputin here(once). If you're into it, the local Russian community demands a large selection and stock of Baltika(harsh, Eastern European stuff). I occasionally see Ayinger Celebrator here, too.
