Was in the area and wanted to pick up a 12 pack so I figured I'd stop in. I was pretty impressed with the overall selection. They had pretty much most the heavy hitters in American craft as well as imports. They also do a "mix a six" where you can choose your own six pack and get 10% off all six of them as opposed to just buying them individually, not really saving much, but better than nothing if you're looking to try out some new beers. The cooler section in the back had all of the main domestics and some craft and imports as well. I found many of the 12 packs to be reasonably priced (Smuttynose, Flying Dog, and Brooklyn all 15.99 which I generally see for the 17-18$ range), but the 6 packs were more on the expensive side, 9.99 for Sams, Mayflower, Smutty, Brooklyn, and even Long Trail. By the cooler they have two aisles of beer, one with 6, 12, and mix packs, the other was the mix a six section, some of the stuff I questioned how long it'd been sitting there though. The service was good, I saw a manager bring up a 30 rack for an elderly woman and they also have signs in the back by the craft beer section stating if you can't find something they can try to order it for you. All in all seems like a pretty good place. I ended up leaving with a Smuttynose mix pack. I'll probably come back at some point to look @ the mix section. Wouldn't go too far out of your way, but if you're in the New Bedford/Fairhaven area it's worth checking out.
