Stumbled upon this place the other day. A local grocery store right off of Mass Ave. Nice that it has it's own parking lot. As for the beer, really solid. They have a cooler selection with most of the big names such as Stone, Founders, Harpoon, Bud products, etc... They also have some mixed bombers in there as well. Right outside of the cooler they have a 4 and 6 packs of other good craft brewers. Head towards the back and you'll find two full shelves of about everything to include imports/Belgiums. Of note I saw some Drie Fonteinen, Against the Grain, Bruery, Dark Horse and Evil Twin. Prices seemed reasonable for everything. I'll definitely check this place out again!

originally gave this place a good rating because they do have a really nice selection of beer, including some of the tougher to find stuff. however after spending well over 200$ on beer there, today I was turned down on an alcohol sale because the scanning machine they have didnt recognize my card - terrible terrible technology. as a 26 year old who has spent significant money at this establishment, its pretty infuriating. so they get a 1 on service - that being said, ive spent a good 20 minutes browsing their beer selection and have never been asked if i was looking for something in particular or if i needed any help.... not that that typically bothers me, but the service is sub par and the vibe is a little snooty, which isnt my scene. however the selection is good enough that i will definitely go back... but who knows if I will even be able to purchase anything!!

This is an adorable garden center in the middle of the city, and they have a small grocery with a decent craft beer selection. I recommend a visit.

However, their "Pemberfest" is another story. They oversold tickets this year (2014) to the point were the crowds were packed in to a much too small space. It was a 15-20 minute wait for each brewery (for a single sample!). They should charge more money and limit the sales. I don't imagine I'll waste my time next year, and want to caution others.
