Got turned on to this place via BeerFly close to a year ago and it has become my regular store for pretty much all my purchases. What was a decent selection a year ago has rapidly turned into the best in the area, bar none. If you have an idea of what you're looking for but aren't totally sure just ask for John and you'll be pointed in the right direction. He's clearly the most knowledgeable but, from my own experiences, not the only one who knows their beer here. Prices are on par with the area, some things cost slightly more, some a bit less. The mix-a-six selection is a decent deal, ($10.50 a sixer) if you can find 6 worthy beers. There have been times where I've come across old seasonals and beers past their prime and other times when I've seen (and benefited once) John hand a beer out of a fresh six pack to a customer on the house and proceed to put the other 5 in the mix-a-six section. Overall, for the selection and price alone on the South Shore this place can't be beat and the service only adds to it.

I live in the area, and have been here a few times. Small space, in a strip mall, easy to miss. Huge collection of craft beer, and knowledgeable staff. Didn't care for the "we don't do case prices" policy.

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

Once was a meeca. John the bearded beer guy moved on. Now it is dusty bottles along with the occasional new offering.

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.
