3.1/5  rDev -1.9%

Over all I thought this place was pretty good. A decent sized liquor store with a nice selection of the more common craft brews. I found Rogue,DFH, Allegash, Troeggs,and many more! They had a fairly decent amount of craft beer in the fridge too! This place is right next to a supermarket so it's convient if you need some other food or something. This would'nt be the place to go to look for a variety of single bottles to mix and match, but they did have a pretty decent selection of bombers there.

UPDATE: I've bought a bottle of Simcoe IPA and Hoptimus prime from this store at seperate times and both bottles exploded like they were over primed when I opened them when I got home. Im not sure if the bottles are sitting on the shelf too long or what the deal is but be warned!!

This is an upscale wine and "craft" liquor store that also happens to have a small selection of craft beer. The selection is mostly local along with a handful of regionally distributed brands.

There's nothing wrong with the place, but it's not where you're going to stop in Salem if you're actually interested in buying craft beer. The selection is just way too small.
