I've been to Dub's on several occasions over the last few years for the typical 'quick stops' that have to be made before an event or just need to grab some real quick without browsing.

The beer section is in the back left area a little crowded by boxes of hard liquor but most of the beer is in the 'beer cave'. Twelve packs of the usual generic beer and bigger names in the craft scene are readily available with a fairly steady selection of craft brews. The same beers/breweries can be expected over an extended period of time. I've noticed lately an increase in bombers with a new shelf for them. The selection is better than average, but nothing particularly special.

Overall, the helpfulness of the staff is somewhat lacking, it doesn't seem like anyone is particularly interested in helping people look for beers, but they are more helpful when looking for wines. A good store for when a quick stop is necessary, but for in-depth shopping, a visit to a different store should be made.

Called when I was looking for Stone's "Enjoy by 11.12.13," sure enough they had one bottle left and were able to hold it for me until I got there a couple of hours later. This was my first visit to the store. A relatively small craft section but a lot of stuff I haven't seen at other places around here. They also had the Maine Beer Co "Another One" in stock pile that I took advantage of, although a few months older than desired. IPA's don't age well!

I was able to call ahead and receive major customer service on King Henry. I called about two weeks ago, and they informed me they had not received any yet, but they will and to call back. I call yesterday and speak to someone who is clueless about the beer, transferred, next person knows a little, seeks out beer person who is not around. However, they take my name and number. I receive a call a half hour later.

I am told it will be in the next day, I reserve two and pick them up today. Great customer service and a surprisingly good selection of hard to come by beers! Will return.

The quality of beer at Dubs's is always fresh. In the nearly six years I lived near this store, I never purchased beer that was flat or significantly outdated. In short, the beer always tastes good from Dubs's.

I was never impressed with the service at Dubs's. There was an older gentleman that worked there who was always willing to look for beer for you, but beyond that, the staff was often uninterested in anything other than completing the purchase and moving on to the next customer (it always felt like a fast food joint to me).

The selection was always reasonable. Nothing extravagant (could never find Chimay Grand Reserve - Blue), but some of the regulars were always available (e.g. Salvator, Otter Creeks, Hacker-Pschorr, etc.). They deal in moderate/high volume so they often have decent sales (e.g. from time to time found cases of Guinness Extra Stout bottles -- not the new widget bottles -- for sale at $23.99).

I was always pleased with the prices. 12-packs were usually in the $11-13 range for Harpoon, Sam, OC, Magic Hat. Paulaner and Hacker-Pschorr 6-packs were typically in the $8-9 range (this was before beer prices started to soar with rising oil prices). If I was just looking for something quick or a large number of beers, I'd usually go to Dubs's. If I wanted something special or felt like chatting about beer, it was off to Cork's in Mansfield.
