This place is 2 miles from my In-Law's.

It's a nice stop to help make my visit's more enjoyable.

They had a decent (not great) singles section that seems to have a misture of some craft brews with items like Bud Light and Miller Chill. You can grab a local (New England) single, but rarely find stuff from other parts of the country. They seem to focus solely on New England breweries and rarely venture farther than Southern Tier. Bershkshire, Smuttynose, Harpoon, Long Trail, Buzzard's Bay and Magic Hat are all well represented. But don't bother looking for any west coast or midwest stuff.

Fairly nice bomber section...

Bottom line is that if you need something of a craft nature while down for the weekend it's a good spot. But if this was your "go to" beer store.... any serious BA person would be very dissapointed. Thank God, I just visit here and live closer to Boston where I can get all of my goodies.

For Cape Cod, this place isn't bad at all. Fully stocked wine/liquor, but more importantly has a respecable selection of beers. All of the locals are represented, and more recently I've noticed more of an effort to bring in higher quality beers (usually in bombers). For example, within the past 6 months they've started carrying Stone beers, including IPA, bastard, ruination, 10th anniv, 06.06.06, and the barleywine. I've never seen these anywhere else on the cape.
On top of this, they carry many of the regional 12 packs, many seasonal mix packs, etc... They also offer single 12 oz bottles for sale, displayed all together on a large wall shelving unit. Many macros mixed throuout unfortunately, but still a decent selection to choose from if you want to try six different craft beers. Growing up around the area, it's pleased me to see how stores like this are increasingly looking to cater the the growing area of the industry, that is craft beer.

I was fortunate enough to be staying about a mile away from this place, and made many a shopping trip here.
Walking inside, you have to cross around the counter and some wine area to get to the beer, which occupies a large chunk in the far left of the store. There's a large shelving display filled with singles, a couple other shelves with beer in larger sized bottles, and probably 30' worth of cooler space, which houses various six and twelve packs.
If you're browsing through the singles section, beware. I've gotten more stale, skunked, oxodized beer here than anywhere else. Plenty of best before dates that expired long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away. If you're into collecting, this is a great place to pick up obscure/old beers. They also have a "clearance" section with 4-5 beers that are nearly antique.
The beer in the coolers is reasonably fresh, with most of the usual suspects and an odd import here and there that I'd never seen. I don't recall ever picking up stale beer from this area. The beer on the other shelf, the larger sized bottles, is hit or miss. Plenty of fresh beer, but also a few beers ready for their AARP plans. I picked up a bottle of Smuttynose Dunkel Lager here, which had to have been at least 3-4 years old. Also Sam Adams Golden Pilsner and their old Scotch Ale (which wasn't half bad with a couple years on it) Be absolutely sure to check dates, if available. If not, I try to hold the beer up to a light and see if there's any sea monsters growing in there.
The service is ok. No one really seems to know much about the beer, but the staff is pleasant enough. If you have a question about anything, they at least give an honest attempt to answer.
Anyways, a good stop for beer, particularly collectors. The sixers are pretty safe, but I'd always check the dates on anything I buy for consumption.

This is probably the best of the 3 Luke's stores that I've visited on Cape Cod for the craft beer fan. It devotes a reasonable amount of space to New England and other micros. Many are fresh but some, unfortunately, are not so watch freshness dates. Imports are even more worrisome from a freshness standpoint except for the most popular sellers. Imports selling for premium prices with "best by" dates back to 2001 are not recommended items, to say the least. The micro selection seems better than at the larger store in Yarmouth and probably is one of the 2 or 3 best for variety on Cape Cod. Prices are generally reasonable for the area. If you're vacationing in the area, this would definitely be a good stop. We have a summer home in the area and this has consistently been a prime store for me over a period of years.
