This place is a hidden gem. So much so I almost hate to review it :-). They have a very nice selection of craft beer, and their prices are the best around. Significantly less than the other bottle shops in this area.

The Folks who work there are super friendly and always fun to talk to. They are super accommodating to beer requests. If you ask for a beer they will do their best to get it for you.

I actually drive 1.5 hours (each way) from NH once a month just to buy beer there. NH distro sucks compared to MA.

One of my favorite bottle shops anywhere. Definitely worth checking out.

Scored a Caractere Rouge for 8 dollars cheaper than at Redstone.

My regular store even though I live 15 minutes away & pass several stores on my way there (including the geek-approved Redstone Liquors).

Solid selection & best pricing bar none. Not the most uber-geek/esoteric choices, but they have the craft beer I'm looking for. Usually have the fresh seasonals I'm seeking, most are in the cooler where they should be.

Friendly staff always willing to help. Only qualm is with the bottle return..odd setup. And traffic situation can be brutal...even dangerous when going north on 28.

Rapid Liquors is easily the best liquor store in Mass for selection and price...whether it's wine, beer or liquor they will have the best price guaranteed.
Their craft beer selection is AWESOME...they have rare beer and hard to find limited release brews that other stores just do not have.
Their wine section is ridiculous...easy to find varieties labeled by country and/or grape. Always 2-3 dollars cheaper per bottle than every other store.

I am a huge fan of Rapid Liquors. I've been a customer of theirs for the last year and a half and I wish I learned about them sooner. They have a great selection, including domestic and international beers and all different styles. Anytime I ask for a certain beer that may be difficult to find they do their best to get it for me if they don't have it already, which they mostly do have everything I'm looking for. The staff is very knowledeable and incredibly helpful. Best of all is their pricing, it simply cannot be beat.

The only thing I would say could use some improvement is the selection. I still think it's top notch but since it's a smaller shop, there's room for improvement.

Rapid Liquors is always my first stop for quality craft beer.

This store has a good selection of craft beer, most of which is in the coolers. They have a small rack with unrefrigerated stuff. They cover their bases with a number of brands, but they are definitely lacking in a wide selection. As most liquors stores go in MA this place is a cut about the rest, but certainly not nearly as good as Redstone. Their prices make this place worth going to if they have what you are looking for.

If they made a push to expand their craft section and could maintain their low prices they could certainly give a lot of stores a run for their money.
