vibe: 4 | quality: 4.25 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.25

A great place to visit with a good selection of US and international craft beers. Selection is always changing so nice to stop in from time to time to see what is available. My only negative is that beer are sorted by country making it very difficult to identify a beer worth trying. Would prefer it categorized by style.

Vibe: More of a wine store than beer so they have wine tastings and lots of wine selections. Staff seem to know much more about the wines and asking about specifics regarding beer is not always helpful. Overall friendly and inviting atmosphere but would've liked more than one person with knowledge about the beer selection and varieties.

Quality/Selection: Very nice selection of beer that range from cheap regular craft beer to expensive one off special brews.

Service: Always friendly and helpful.

Atmosphere: This store has a draw to it. The Store is very small due to its location in Southie and lack of space, but does well with what it has. There have been wine and beer tastings every Friday that I walked in. I feel like I belong here the second I walk into the store.

Service: Without fail, as soon as I walk in someone asks me if I need help with anything. All of the staff are extremely knowledgeable regarding the craft beers, local beer fairs and items soon to be released. Some of the staff even know my tastes from past conversations and inform me of new items as they come in. Last week, they handed a beer to me that did not even make the shelf yet knowing it was my style.

Selection: This store has a great selection of American craft beers. They also have a section dedicated to international beers and continuously bring in new selections.

Value: The prices are little higher than I find in the South Shore stores, but they do have overhead to deal with by being located in the city. This is definitely a good place to visit if you're leaving work and want your beer already cold when you get home. They keep most of their popular beers in the cooler.

vibe: 4 | quality: 4.25 | service: 4.25 | selection: 4.75

Atmosphere: This place is very inviting. The Store is well divided and has a nice section dedicated to craft beer. The only downfall was that the shelves were a bit squeezed together and there wasn't much room to move around. .

Service: As soon as I walked in the owner asked me if I needed help with anything and was there if I had any questions.

Selection: This store has a great selection of American craft beers. They also have a section dedicated to international beers with alot of Belgian stuff such as St-Bernardus Abt 12 among others.

Value: The prices for the beers are very reasonable. There's not much of a difference from other stores. This is definitely a good place to visit if you're visiting Boston or live in Boston and are looking for some great beer.

This place is great. It is quite refreshing to see a store like this in South Boston.

The store is incredibly clean and modern. It is small, but has an impressive beer and wine selection for its size. Looking through the fridge I saw NO bud products at all. They are clearly not wasting space on bad beer.

The two guys who work there (I forget their names) were super nice and are able to order specialty things too. They had a lot of the expected craft beers, but some cool things too. I picked up a Castelain Bier De Guard, and a few other brews I had not seen before.

Bottom line: For a small store in Southie they kick butt. Great selection and service.
