I stopped by on my way to the "Heavy hitters" breweries near Boston. I was impressed with the selection of beers available, they also carried t-shirts, hats, glassware from many different breweries (alas they do not have the one I was looking for). Overall a worthwhile shop to visit!

I pray my thanks to the "Beer Gods" for bringing a quality craft packie to my door step. The entire staff are so friendly & knowledgeable. If you are a "craft novice" they treat you with respect. I've heard each of them explain both in "beer layperson" terms & with the quickest of IBU answers to the beer snobs (I'm guilty!). Their shelved by region. Local stuff is ALWAYS in front. You can break up a 4 or 6 pack at will. Their prices are very reasonable. Parking in Braintree/Weymouth Landing can be difficult but walking a block or so is worth every second. The CBC is a local small business that makes it worth the drive from anywhere. I'd give them a 10 but BA only allows me 5.

Love this store. Super clean. Very well organized. Local section is awesome! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Great having a store readily available that just caters to the craft beer lover. No shelf wars with wine and booze...

If you're in the MA South Shore, this is the place to shop for craft beer.

It's easy to find, there is usually parking out front or across the street.

The service is excellent. Not only are the owners and staff knowledgable and outgoing, they will
also give their honest opinion about a beer you are considering buying. Also, excellent recommendations for beer.

Wifi or an Internet connection is available if you want to look up reviews. Not always the case even in some urban locations.

The store is small but easy to navigate- this is an important plus for getting a good look at their inventory.

As in other CBC's, the staff pays is careful to bottle dates. So the IPAs are fresher and new inventory is continuous. As in other CBC's all the beer is very good to excellent+ quality.

There is also glassware, craft whiskey, and cider available.

Shopping here is easy, pleasant, and hassle free. The best place in the South shore for Craft Beer geeks.

Super friendly staff that are always there for questions. I've strolled around the store with Kay while she pointed out recommendations. Great selection, fair prices (you'll find beers for less but without the consistency or service) and a really nice layout. Large chilled beer selection and you can buy singles from any pack. If you time it right you can get your hands some good stuff from MBC, Night Shift and basically everything that gets distributed to and in MA. Great spot.

This is currently my go to place when I can afford to drive up. The store is very clean and well organized by region. Price is good for the area. Every beer in the store can be purchased as a single. They have a wide variety of beers, some of which do not make it south to the Cape. The other really nice aspect of this store is that the staff are really friendly. I have gone in there plenty of times with my three year old and they will offer her a lolly pop at the front of the store. They will answer all sorts of questions as well. Really nice people working there which makes it really easy to shop there.

I literally drive 20 minutes out of my way to visit this place. I met Jeff first, one of the owners, and he's a great dude. Everyone there knows their stuff and I am always asking questions for local beers to trade away. I had asked if they were getting in the Avery Rumpkyn and Pumpkin beers, a week later Kay (another owner) called me to let me know they had come in. They held one each for me! The CBC Braintree is the only place I will go. Jeff, Joe, Kay, and Matt are all amazing. Love this place!

So I decided to check this place out the last time I went back home for a weekend. Walk in to nice and neat shelves all organized and separated by region. They also had a few coolers full on packs and bombers. The selection was on the small size but decent and priced fairly and the service was phenomenal. Over all I would say this is a decent bottle store and I would definitely go back.
