Long Ridge Wine and Spirits is located right next to the Market—high end grocery store in the Pine Hills development. It is slowly becoming the first place I look for beer in Plymouth. Price wise they are very competitive. Somehow Long Ridge seems to get big time rare beers and great bombers. I was able to find Speedway Stout there and several other beers from Jolly Pumpkin and DogFishHead that I would previously have to drive up to Weymouth for. They do have about three coolers of craft sixes there and a fridge full of cold bombers. Also every now and then you can find a surprise in their very limited singles selection. Service is good, but generally speaking they will not approach you first. If you want a wide variety, this place is probably not for you. If you want a chance to find something you did not think made it to the cape area, it is certainly worth a pop in.

I have come in here several times and every time I leave very satisfied. I love trying different craft beers every time I come into this store. There are several employees that really know their stuff about all of the beers that they carry. They do have some singles cold, but more 6-packs cold than singles. I have found that they always have cool, geeky stuff. Overall, I am happy with their selection and will continue to come back.

I live less than one mile form this place and have been there dozens of times. It is small-ish, and the selection is ok, but not great (no Wormtown or Night Shift). The prices tend to be high. I usually only go out of laziness or necessity, as I work near other options that I prefer

This place is located in the beginning of Pinehills next to The Market. It is attached to the market and inside features a high pitched ceiling with plenty of lighting and wooden beams going across the store. The beer is located neatly in the back half of this little hidden gem.

The quality of the beer is good. Rob and his team bring in some rare stuff and are always doing beer tasting whenever they can. The selection can vary depending on the season, but for the most part, a great store to visit if you are in the Southern Plymouth area.

The service is very limited, but I seem to go early afternoon, so the service is great. They might have more staff on for busier nights and if and when they do tastings. Rob is very knowledgeable and is willing to learn about brewing techniques and visting local breweries too.

The selection is limited, but still good for the size of the store. Sixers and single bombers and 750's in the frdges in the back and the back right hand corner. There are also floor displays of single and rare singles too that he somehow seems to get his hands on from time to time.

The price of beer is reasonably priced in accordance to what is in the area and well worth the rare singles and one-offs. Definitely worth the trip and you will leave as a happy person.
