Stopped here after visiting the Homebrewing Hobby store in Woburn. I've heard many things and finally decided to stop in since I was close. What suprised me most was how small the place was. It's really not any bigger than your average high school classroom, with a cooler in the back. However there is no space waisted. For the most part everything is reasonably well organized and most things seem to have a home. I'm being reasonable here, like I said the place is really small so there are some stacks of beer in the aisle and towards the back as well. I initially wasn't too impressed with the service, but they came through in the end. My wife and I walked in and we got "the head knod." I'm fine with that, but we spent a decent amount of time walking around and the 3 or so employees working didn't move from behind the register. However once I checked out, the man working the register informed me if I purchased one more beer I would recieve 10% off my purchase...which came to a free beer and $1.50 off my purchase. He said I could go grab one and while I did he left the register to get me a box for the beer I was buying. I ended up getting 6 Stone collaboration brews one of which was the More brown than Black IPA which I was stoaked about then I got a couple 4 packs of Hopponius Union. I was very happy to see they had that much for me to buy of Jack's Abby. HU isn't too easy to come by at the moment since they've switched distributers. The Selection is very good, plenty to choose from and it runs deep. We're not talking about just flagship/regular lineups from many breweries. There was plenty of special release beers that were on the shelves. Very good import selection of Belgian and other Euopean brews, Fantome, Mikkeller, Haandbraak, and the list goes on. Prices were fair, but everything seemed to be $1-$2 more than what I see at Granite Liquors, not thier fault, it's tough to compete with the Bearded Beer Guy. It's a bit of a hike for me, so I wouldn't go up there just to go, but I think I would stop by to see what they had again if I were in the area, it's certainly one of the better craft beer stores in MA.

I refer to Redstone as the best liquor store in the state and I don't dub that title lightly. The beer selection is incredible without leaving out the regular mass produced stuff. Prices are good. The new store is unbelievable. They always seem to get the special release stuff. It's just an extremely well curated store with a great social media presence.

You walk in to some of the most knowledgeable staff ever. A huge selection, with good prices to start and then they let you know if you purchase 6 single bottles big or little you get 10% off or 12 you get 15%. Staff is friendly, helpful, and very enthusiastic about beer. One of if not the best beer store I have been in. Nothing bad to say.
