The mecca of alcohol and beer. Larger than a supermarket. Rows and rows of wine, liquor and beer. Lots of local craft selections. A long row of seasonal choices. Another long row of local craft selections. Two long rows of craft six packs arranged by brewery. Two more long rows of single can/bottle selections arranged by country of origin. Lots of specialty choices I can't find elsewhere. Plenty of cold items. Kegs. Mainstream beers. Generous loyalty program. Friendly staff. Growler station with a rotation of approx 12 selections. Can't love it enough!

Always a staple spot for me when i get into Montpelier. There is something so special about a great breakfast place that serves beer at 10am when we usually get into town from PA. There really isn't a bad choice here, everything I've had has been excellent thus far.

Typical grocery store type of deal here, the vibe is decent. The beer section is the only reason I've stopped in here. The selection is usually pretty good, they're also a main drop off for Heady and Sip so people usually lineup for that shit like they'll never have it again. Always nice to score some if you're lucky. If not, they have a lot of other great beers to choose from.

Decent beer option and good food, in a relaxed environment. The beer taps included several local options, a couple solid imports, and a few surprises. Enjoyable but not exceptional.

18/8/17 with the wife while eclipse chasing. Industrial part of town but no issues finding it. Had a flight and although all were decent I was only really impressed by a couple of the beers I tried much to my surprise. The food and service were excellent, best BLT I can remember and my wife's fish was fresh as can be. I'd go back in a flash but might dig into the vintage list as that's where the real gems were hiding.......still don't think I'd drop 1500$ for a bottle of Dave, by far the most expensive thing I've seen on a beer list....

Finally went today and asking why did I wait so long. Cool converted garage with 16 bar stools, communal tables, glass windows fronting Olympic Blvd for looking out of, wood ceilings and exposed metal/duct work. Over 60 taps served at various temperatures, dependent upon the beer style, plus a couple of hand pumps for cask ales. Arrived early for brunch and the service was spot on. Got the breakfast sando and it was superb. Prices a bit high, but some of beers you will not find many other places on tap or otherwise. Will most certainly return and on Monday & Tuesdays there are flights available. Only suggestion is I wish the flight option was everyday, yeah it takes time I get it, but with this many beers to choose from... they are very generous with samples however.

Stopped here on a trip to Toledo to pick up a collection of local micro brews, after going to the #1 place for beer stores in the area. #1 was a let down, as most selections were not offered in singles. So, my wife asked what is the next place? and off we went to Marino's. I was excited to see all packs were also priced as singles, albeit at a higher price. It definitely took me awhile to find Ohio crafted beer scattered around the shelves and cooler, but walked out with a nice selection.

I talked to the sales associate while getting my order rung up, and he was very friendly and pleasant. I complimented him on their vast selection of craft beer, and offering singles. He said that is how they have made a name for themselves. Definitely worth the drive out of town, if you don't want a full 4 or 6 pack of the same thing.

4.51/5  rDev +5.1% | Avg: 4.29
vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.75

Certified is a small liquor store with a surprisingly good selection of beers. Each time I'm there, there are new beers from local or well rated breweries. Can't really speak to their other offerings such as wine and spirits. But the owner is friendly and the beer is good. From reading old reviews, it seems the place has not always been this way. But I'm glad that it is what it is now. This is my go to store for craft beers when I want something to take home or to friends.

vibe: 3.75 | quality: 3.5 | service: 4 | selection: 3.75

Definitely more brewery, taproom feel than Lakeville Brewery. Bare bones look, industrial, austere feel. Despite this it is lively with lively characters within. Seems a happy place. Service is just at the bar and they are attentive. They card everyone if they do not know you so bring ID. The beer is nothing good unfortunately. The pils and brown where nothing more than malt liquor. The Samoan Kisses was decent but nothing I would want to order again. Basically the beer brewed in this town between the two breweries is below average.

3.56/5  rDev +2.3% | Avg: 3.48
vibe: 3 | quality: 3.25 | service: 3.75 | selection: 4 | food: 3.5

An austere establishment with not a lot of visual appeal. Seems popular with locals and visitors. Full bar with guest beers. The house beer is a bit pedestrian but they had a Sahti type beer that had me wanting more. About the only beer brewed in Lakeville that I would want again. Several regional favorite styles of beer available. The guest taps were all solid selections. Nice varied food menu. The food was OK. Nothing to complain about but nothing I would go out of my way for. I thought food prices where high but seem to be on par for this town. I would probably just walk over to Heavy Metal Grill next time to eat.

This is a hip place to go in Havertown. They've got an adult menu of creative
dishes and 12 taps with a cool selection of various brews. I got a Dogfish Fall Saison and my wife got a D9 brown ale. I got the crunchy duck sliders and they were pretty awesome. My wife got some sort of fancy salad. They also have a bunch of different whiskey brands and mixed drinks. It's a vastly popular and small joint so go when it's not lunch or dinner unless you want to wait or don't mind standing. I hear they have a bigger joint in Media.

Stopped in the new Charlton location on my way to Worcester on a Friday. Despite being a summer Friday, the line was pretty reasonable (about 100 people), but only took 25 minutes for me to get my allotment on offer (Sap and Lights On) that day. Would like to go back when they're offering pours and enjoy the outdoor area, even with the kids. Really great beers, and look forward to my next excuse for stopping in Massachusetts, as it's just off the Sturbridge exit, coming from CT.

Stopped by twice during our vacation, including with the kids. Food was pretty good (Pele's Poke, Uncle's Fish Tacos, and Pepperoni Pizza Rolls). Quite a selection of seasonal offerings (~10) on top of the dozen standards. Reasonable flight prices (for 4 5oz) as well. Kid friendly to boot. More outside seating than indoors, but hey, it's Hawaii, so no complaints....

Great place. Graffiti on the walls. Tons of seating. You can order beer at the bar or at your table -- just open a tab and you're good. Not stuck with one server. Order food at a window, too, and they bring it to you.

Tried five beers and they were all really solid. Best I've had in town.

Knowledgeable, friendly, quick servers.

Tasty BBQ menu. Not world class, but pretty solid pulled pork and chicken.

Nice rustic old hotel that's been made into a restaurant/bar in the woods of Bath PA. The vibe is pretty chill, some vintage decor on the walls. The bar has a decent beer selection. The food is very good, all the meats they serve are smoked on premise. Always a nice time here.

vibe: 1 | quality: 1 | service: 1 | selection: 1 | food: 1

The owner obviously does not care about experiences that give his name and restaurant a bad name. I ordered 1 beer ($2.16) and gave my waitress, Caleigh, $20.16 expecting $18 in bills back. After 10 mins I had to go looking for her and she was standing right behind me talking to friends, she then gave me $17 and changed but that's not the correct math. I told her and all she had to do was just nicely bring me back the correct change but she made a whole show about it. She was waving the dollar bill in the air (being rude about it) and handed me a wet dollar bill ripped in half. (Very much intentional) Okay I would get it if I was rude but I literally ordered 1 drink and wasn't drunk, rude, or needy, I just wanted my dollar. Called the GM about it and he just seemed like he was doing his routine "I'm sorry" and the owner had no interest in messaging me back about it either. I worked for a small restaurant in Spartanburg that has an owner that takes things like that serious and at least contacts the customers with a genuine apology. Caleigh really must live a sad life since she could easily treat someone the way she did. I've worked in retail for almost 7 years now and food as well, and I've never treated anyone with that much disrespect. Pathetic.

Very mellow place to hang out, lots of sitting room with good views of the brewery, covered out side sitting area with bar, and various games and a beer garden with hops growing, they had 15 different beer on tap with 11 of them only available inside the tap room, they were more than happy to give us a tour of the brewery and was very informative about the brewing process... they have different events at the brewery including yoga, food trucks, and live music... Would definitely return in the future

Visited for a few beers on a Saturday afternoon. The space is pretty vanilla, there is a bar along the wall will some tables as well. A bit of outdoor seating in front as well. They have a draft list of about 10 beers available in small and normal pour sizes. List is very heavy on saison variations. They also often bottles for in house drinking (pricey), and also a few wines and whiskey. Service was fine. They have a small food menu but we didn't eat.

Stopped in for lunch and a couple beers on a Saturday afternoon. There is a small bar and some tables, plus another room upstairs but we didn't go up there. There is also a food counter that you need to order food seperately. Beer is mostly pales, IPAs, with a couple of others like pils, goose, wit, and a brown. Bar service was good but the food counter person seemed annoyed to take my order. The two beers I drank were decent but not great.

Ate at 7pm on a Friday night. Plenty of seating available, as place was about half full. Large selection of beers available. The beers are average to good, you can see their reviews separately. Service was good, but they were not busy. The food was also good, nothing was bad but nothing stood out either. Overall it's a good place to experience part of the St. Louis food scene.

A craft beer venue serving 54 different beers? Yes, please! This is perhaps my favorite beer venue on Long Island. It is simple: you will get good service, a staff that knows beer, great selection and prices that are reasonable. Get flights, try some new beers and have a good time. A beer lover's venue for sure and a must visit if you are in Suffolk County. I only wish we had a venue like this in Leland, NC.

Great selection of beer, wine, and spirits. Deli foods as well. There were plenty of people willing to help us, but they didn't seem to know much about craft beer. One of the employees told me that a particular DIPA was extremely fresh because it had just arrived at the store last week - label said it was bottled 4 months ago.

Honestly, go, but do it self-guided.
