Family has house in Cotuit, so this is the local go-to store. Check the preceding 4 reviews. Note the dates. The scores are declining, but not because the store got worse--a lot of other stores got better. Cape Cod used to be Macro Central. Few places had interesting beers, let alone a selection of them. CL was an early adopter. And they still have decent selection, although more 12s and cases than 4s and 6s. And when it comes to singles, forget it! On the other hand, this is one of the few places in MA that I've seen 12s of Lagunitas. They had a full selection of Sierra Nevada, but it's all over MA stores right now. The difference? The date code on Torpedo was a full two weeks (almost three, in some cases) fresher than every other store I hit in the past week. Cisco 12s were canned the same week--and these are cans, so they are coming from Upstate NY, not from the island. And both were priced (per bottle) below cases of Harpoon and Sam Adams. Lagunitas was a good deal too. Cases of DFH were the expected $52 (have never seen a different price in MA). Decent, but not spectacular foreign selection, but dominated by Warsteiner, Bass and Guiness. I did not notice any rarities in the fridge (where most of the singles and bombers were). Service is sharp and fast, even though clerks look young and raw. Two staffers were girls clearly just turned drinking age. Pleasant and helpful, but not the most knowledgeable. Wine and liquor selection is comparable, although somewhat better priced, especially compared to other stores on the Cape. This is a beer review, so wines and spirits were not incorporated, but worth mentioning. It's sometimes silly to rate on "vibe", but, in this case, it seems appropriate--it felt like a very "Cape" store, as opposed to some mass-market booze outlet. I'll be visiting it soon as it's local, and if you are traveling down 28 past Cotuit, it's worth a look. Not sure it would be worth a detour, though. Even if prices might be slightly better than competition, you'd loose the bonus on gas. And BJs has better prices on things they have in common (especially booze and macros).

Excellent store. Selection is very good. Has craft as well as macro products. This is the other bottle shop I go to in my spare time. Cape Cod is becoming a craft beer haven.

I checked this store out based on the few reviews that it had. A decent selection of craft beer, but a little disappointing. They have some real nice six packs, and 750's, but not a lot. Everything that was there you could find somewhere else on the Cape. It is a nice liquor store and staff is nice, but this is not a place to go out of your way for like what I did. I ended up leaving empty handed unfortunately. I just wasn't impressed with this place. If you live close by it would be a nice alternative than driving up to Falmouth or Hyannis every once and while.

Stopped in Cotuit Liquors the other day to grab some beer for my girlfriends birthday dinner at her parents house. Thought I would bring over some Sam Adams Oktoberfest for everyone, and maybe some Bud Light for the lady.

I've been in here before, but never really looked around. I got what I had gone in for, but what really cause my eye was all the craft beer. They had some really fun stuff, including Flying Dog, Victory, and Dog Fish Head. I walked away with a 4 pack of Dog Fish Head's Punkin Ale. The guy at the counter assured me it was a good pick (never had it before) and he was so right!

Nice and clean, good selection, reasonable price. Located right next to a hardware store, so grab some beer to enjoy after the "to-do" list

I entered this store figuring it would be the typical local store with lots of macros and a few crafts. What a surprise! The domestic craft beer selection is one of the finest on the Cape - or southern MA for that matter. Lots of cooler doors with crafts including some I would never have expected to find. They even had the Penichuck products from NH which are hard to find where I live in that state. In addition, freshness did not seem to be a problem unlike some of the larger Cape locations.

The import selection is decent but not exceptional. I've summered on the Cape for many years and don't know of any store heavy on quality imports.

For a domestic craft fan, I'd rate this with Windmill Liquors in Orleans as a "must stop" store when in the area.

Friendly faces and lots of beer. They have everything you need and if it is not in stock then it will be ordered. They have Flying dog, Harpoon, Chimay, Unibroue, Stone, Bear Republic, Stoudt, Offshore ales, Wachusett and any specialty brew that Sam Adams comes out with. They really cover all the bases by ordering local brews in abundance and bringing in beers from all over the world and the U.S . I have been buying beer here for a long time and I haven't found any place better. I highly recomend this establishment.
