A decent, relatively small, beer section/selection in a wine shop that also sells liquor. A few surprises like Maine beers, but maybe that's pretty common for MA stores. A reasonable selection of local stuff, although it seemed random rather than a selection of better breweries. Overall, a decent place that I'd be happy to stop in at again.

I am re reviewing this place due to my second trip there that I made last week. Last week when I went I met Matt the stores resident beer geek. He had a can of Gubna open and was doing pours. He explained that no matter what the day any time he is working he has beer open and does pours for anyone interested. He is very knowledgeable and helped me out with a few beers that I had been loking for. Their selection is very good as are their prices, I can honestlly say their only downfall is that they really don't offer many singles. Their stock is mostly made up of packs and bombers which as the only real downfall of this store isn't too major. For anyone in the area that hasn't checked this place out you should head over it is worth the trip.

Not the biggest selection but very well put together a good sized double sided rack full of bombers from Firestone walker ,goose island,the bruery ,stone ,and night shift to name a few ,plus a great selection of local and Belgian brews .there is a tiny cooler with a few bombers and sixes and a good variety of craft and variety 12 packs . The beer manager knows his stuff and is great for recommendations if you are on the fence. Prices are right in line with everyone else in the area . I always stop by when I'm in the area .

More of a liquor and wine store but they have a good selection of craft beers. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. I believe they have a different brewery tasting every Friday or at least as many as possible. Pricing is good and would recommend to anyone and everyone for a place to find good booze.

Was at Bin Ends yesterday and was surprised that their beer selection has continued to grow considering it was just wine when it first opened. One of my friends knows the owner so we were chatting with us and he informed us that they now have a full-time craft beer buyer and are working on having more and more of those special one off's beers, like Stone's 12.12.12 which they had yesterday.

They also had Founders Breakfast Stout and Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout, two beers I have not be able to find at Curtis Liquors or Granite Liquors, the two big craft carriers in the area.

The store was very busy when we were there yesterday as a wine tasting was going on at the same time, but was really amazing was that it seemed that most of the people in the store were browsing the beer area and not the wine. Wouldn't be surprised to see them expand the store at some point and further increase their beer selection.

I was leaving the South Shore Plaza and searched "Beer store" and this came up on my phone. I decided to check it out and was pleasantly surprised with what it turned out to be.

Its a big warehouse with a very large selection of wine, some liquor, and also beer. I wasn't amazed by the amount of beers they had, but the prices and some of the rare finds.

I found that most of the beers were being sold for about a 20% discount compared to other craft beer sellers. I don't think they are well known so they had a couple of rarer bombers on their self. I got a Blvd Love Child #2, and DFH Bitches Brew.

The staff is friendly and they have a beer specialist (who wasn't there unfortunately). They also have the option to add you into their database so you can track what you've purchased in the past.

Another added bonus is that there are frequently Friday night Beer tastings, and wine tastings every weekend.

I was out shopping with my wife in Braintree today, and I noticed this store was right near a store we just left. We stopped in to check it out. Kinda warehouse looking, with big racks, and stuff in crates and on the floor, but they meant it took look that way, so it works. Mostly a wine store, but it does have a beer section on the left. There is a cooler for cold beer, then a shelf of bombers, and also a section of 12 packs. Pretty good selection of local and national brands, plus a few interesting imports. I saw they had one bottle of the DFH Pearl Jam Faithfull left, and the salesman and I had a nice conversation about it, so I bought it. Prices overall seemed pretty decent, at least for what I see in Boston. I'd recommend Bin Ends as a nice place to shop for beer.
