Overpriced, and the beer is sometimes old.

I stop by here every once in a while since everywhere northeast of here closes at 8 on Monday through Wednesday. I usually don't do that very often because every time I stop in, I am reminded that I don't like the place.

Prices are high - Narragansett six packs are $7, while they are $5 a minute up the road at Super Discount, while PBR is $5 for six cans ($3.99 at Super D's, though it was $3.29 until recently). All of this six packs are $1-3 more expensive than Super D's and Black Rock. To the first person who reviewed this place, you can get Stout Trooper cheap than that at those other two places too.

Selection is decent, they stock most of the standard craft beer stuff, though it's nothing out of the ordinary. Limited and pricey selection of singles, and no cheap beer other than standard macrobrews - not a problem for most BA members, but you can't get a buzz for three bucks or less.

Don't expect the beer to be fresh - several times I picked up seasonals that were a year old and beer that was past its prime. Today was the first time I remember getting a fresh beer there.

Check out Super Discount and Black Rock instead of this place, they don't disappoint and this place does.
