Granite Package Store is tucked away in a very unsuspecting shopping plaza. After reading all the stellar reviews in BA, I had to check it out for myself.

The beer selection is in the back of the store. There is no doubt about it, this place has a serious selection of craft beers from all over. Awesome representation of the american heavy hitters (Avery, Great Divide, Dogfish Head, Sierra Nevada, Stone, Lagunitas, Berkshire Brewing, etc) as well as beers from Germany and Belgium and other countries.

I ended up getting a six pack of 21st Amendment Brew Free! or Die IPA, Great Divide Smoked Baltic Porter and Captain Swain's Extra Stout.

Prices are par for the course. It sounds like others have had some great customer service here, my experience was straightforward. The guy at the counter was efficient and friendly enough. Definitely a good store with an extensive selection.

I went to Union Brewhouse afterwards, which makes for a great Weymouth 1-2 punch.

Great selection of craft and specialty beers. Not quite the same since John left, but still should be able to find some goodies here..

This is my go to place for great , great beers.

I walk up and down the aisles with amazed smile on my face looking at the amazing variety of beers on the shelf. Great selection , helpful staff, and it's where I pick up my copy of beer advocate. They have a section which has rarities with limited purchases. That's why I visit this store. Always something unique, cool and worth tasting on the shelf here.

If there was a drawback is that it is in a strip mall next to a Shaws Supermarket. What they need is a bar next door with 36 frequently rotated taps. That aside, a great place to hunt and find beers from all over.
