Explored this place the other day in hops of finding some of the harder to find beers. I though since their big sister store in tyngsboro had such a good selection that they might too. well I was wrong. I noticed some Double ipas on the shelf over 6 months old. There is no one on the floor that knows anything about beer, and the guy behind the counter was not help in assisting me find beer, I just got I have never heard of that. The selection is far smaller than the other store, and the bombers are basically 1-2 dollars over other stores in the general area. not worth the stop, the other location is also pricey but at least the selection makes it worth while

Honestly this place has grown a lot. I never write reviews but it's worth writing one now for this place. They use to have an above average selection that I'd check out ever so often after I did my grocery shopping at market basket but man have they grown. They seem to be better staffed too as everytime I go there a young man is always recommending new beers to me which always seem to be a great choice. I highly recommend this place to any craft beer drinker!

Located in a strip mall right next door to Market Basket on the Lowell/Dracut line (Bridge St.). The set up is pretty standard for a large scale liquor store: shelves dedicated to singles and warm six packs towards the rear left, cold (mostly) macro offerings fill the cooler doors along the rear wall, liquor lines the right wall of the store, with wine occupying the middle of the store. Craft six packs include offerings from Cape Ann, Mayflower, Victory, DFH, North Coast, Smuttynose, etc. Singles include offerings from Cody, North Coast, Enlightenment, etc. Better quality/selection than what you expect from a store next to a Market Basket in Lowell; however, nothing groundbreaking...especially when you consider that everything seems to be $1-$3 more expensive (per six pack/bomber) than other stores in the area.
