2.65/5  rDev -8.6%

Stopped in two days ago. Very large selection of New England brewers: Smuttynose, Shipyard, Tuckerman's, Sebago, Opa, etc., but most of the remainder of the cooler section is relatively average stuff. They also have some craft bottles (bombers and 750's) on a metal shelf next to the cooler. It has very dusty bottles of, for example 2008 Double Bastard wasting away at room temp. along with some Stone IPA with a best by date of 1/14/099, also very dusty. Who do they think is going to buy this stuff? The poor people who do will think the beer isn't very good and possibly make an incorrect judgement based on this poor storage method.
There are also many other beers with cases piled on the floor around the back of the store; nothing terribly exciting, but a better than average selection to browse through. I'm sorry to say that their handling of the Stone beers (IMO the best beer in the store) just really turns me off; probably won't be stopping back there any time soon.

This fairly large liquor store is in a shopping plaza with ample parking. The beer is in the back. There are a few coolers and lots of piled up cases if you want to buy in quantity. There are a few shelves of singles. They don't allow breaking up six packs, which is unfortunate. They have all the usual suspects, a few interesting Belgians, a few local craft beer, but this place is nothing to write home about. There is a bit of a seedy feel to the place, perhaps it is all those conspicuous magnums of cheap booze displayed in the half cut boxes they come in.
