Best place to get bad beer. $12 30-racks of Gennessee?? Count me in. Their craft selection is not bad. I'd say "give it a shot if you're in the area" but it would behoove you to go a half mile down the street to Yankee Spirits instead

Awesome employees, knowledgeable beer guys. I drive over my state line to come here because the crew here is very professional and great personality. The selection gets better and better each month. They continue to expand there craft beer section. Looking back a year ago, the beer selection has grown by about 5 feet in length. The best thing I love about this place other then the employees, is the fact they are a big business. Not like these mom and pop places where they make up the rules. If 2 cases of Parabola come through the back room, they are getting sold to the customer, not getting cut in half cause the mom and pop places want to keep majority for themselves. This is a professional business and the customer comes first.

This place doesn't look to have been reviewed in quite a while. They've moved next door to where a major chain bookstore used to be. An improvement over an already nice space--lots of room, well lit, and well organized. Craft beer is on a large double sided shelving unit in the back right corner, as well as the facing wall fridges.

The craft beer manager is knowledgeable, and will work to find / order things as requested. They've got a big selection and reasonable prices. They seem to leak out Easter Eggs from time to time--I spotted a KBS there in July. I've scored some whales here, and they don't typically place a bottle limit.

The only downside, is that with a store of this size, it is often hard to get assistance.

Went there to respond to an add they had regarding sierra nevada pale ale for 11.99 for a 12 pack. Two 12 packs left in cooler none on the floor but they were four months old.
Picked up some three week old torpedo instead

and a four pack of old raspy.
Be careful some products are out of code which has been noted before about this store.
Store has plenty of parking and staff is very attentive to your needs.
Traffic in the are is a bit heavy because of theamount of retail outlets in the area.
overall positive experience with this beer store.

Although this store has a relatively good selection and the mix a six option, they don't always rotate their beer and sell beer that is either out of code or very old. I've had too many malt bombs and off flavored beer from this store to recommend it to anyone. Unfortunately you can't trust anything not dated from this store and you have to check every beer carefully for freshness dates. This store has great potential as a craft brew haven, but they need to be more vigilant about keeping fresh product on their shelves.

Edit(2/12/13): Craft selection and freshness has been greatly improved, but still need to be vigilant about getting old beer of their shelves! Now my go to store.

Q. All that I have purchased here has been fresh and no dusty bottles.

S. Been there about a half dozen times and walked around for about a 30-45 minutes and no asked me if I needed help. I did have questions a couple of times and they help me out at the registers.

S. The have a good selection of craft beers but were lacking local and Belgium varieties.

V. Prices were what they should be.

It is a little unorganized, have the same beers in different spots. They offer a discount for mixed six packs which is great and you can buy singles from six packs. Good beer store if you are looking for major craft beers.

I discovered this obviously very new store purely by accident last week while heading south on Rte. 1 to Yankee Spirits. It was back from the road on the opposite side of rhe highway but had a very noticeable sign. Since it was a divided highway,I decided to stop on my way back to the Interstate and that turned out to be a very profitable decision.

Compared to the total lack of any "charm" at Yankee, this store is large but clean, very attractive, well laid out, and eliminates the need to push a cart among narrow rows of cases stacked on the floor. There's a huge walk-in cooler with 6-packs and cases of craft beers as well as a long set of shelves devoted solely to crafts/imports to the right of the cooler. Interestingly, the craft beers are in the prime portion of the cooler windows facing entering traffic while the macros are in the windows facing to the back of the store. Thus, the emphasis on crafts is quite obvious.

In my estimation, the number of domestic craft brands displayed equaled or exceeded that of Yankee although that was probably not true of the selection of imports and unusual specialty beers. It toook me about 45 minutes to go through everything. Pricing seemed comparable and staff offered help although I didn't need any. All in all, a much more pleasant shopping experience than Yankee and, since domestic crafts are my prime interest, this will now be my go-to store when in the area.

The newest Chris Gasbarro's location (the other being in Seekonk). I happened to find this place en route to the more famous Yankee down the road. This place is located on busy Route 1 right across from the Emerald Square Mall. The inside is huge and very clean. The staff is extremely friendly and very helpful. The beer selection is large and varied. There is a huge four-sided walkin cooler in the back of the store with lots to choose from. Another long section of craft brews on the shelving to the right. Prices are given for six packs as well as single bottles. (I haven't seen that too often). This location is much better than Seekonk. Much cleaner more laid back than Yankee down the street too.
