Pretty decent selection of European imports with a small cooler of craft and some mixed warm stock of local Foolproof, Newport Storm and Macro 12 packs and six packs. The plus here is they allow you to grab singles. The beer manager was in the afternoon I stopped in (before the Super Bowl)
He was pleasant and we chatted about RI brew for a few minutes. They also give a discount if you buy more then three bombers. 10 % off was pretty cool... This place is worth a look for sure.

This place is in a lstrip mall, so parking is a piece of cake. Inside the beers are in the back right corner. Organized by style, so picking out the RI beers was a bit of a chore, but thatís just my obsessive compulsive problem. Selection was good, and I did find a RI sour that I hadnít seen anywhere else in town. Didnít experience the service, but cashier folks seemed nice enough.

Small shop and as the name implies it is mostly wine, but a nice collection of beers tucked in the corner. Clean, well lit, nicely organized by style. Selection if larger sized bottles. Seemed hit or miss, so I asked. Because the section is small, they rotate things in and out working with their supplier. It was worth the stop, picked up Founders which I had not found anywhere else local to me. Staff was helpful, not hovering. I hit the area a couple times a month, so a definite place to stop. Only reason for he lower score is the small selection, but understand why. They do seem to treat beer similar to wine, so I expect to see different stock. Nice shop.

This place just opened in Providence, so I stopped in and was very pleasantly surprised. A clean, crisp new store with a good diversity of craft beer. They have two big shelves of singles, bombers, and big bottles, including a decent selection from Europe and regional microbrews. Light on other national craft beers (very little from the west coast, for instance). Itís a clean, sharp, smartly laid out place that feels a little upscale. I think they do a nice job of high-grading and not just putting the whole line up for every brand on the shelves. Some of the ubiquitous regional sloggers werenít to be seen. However, as a result, the prices were mixed. Somethings I picked up were reasonable (4.99 for Harpoon 100 Barrel bomber, 1.49 for a single of Flying Dog), but others were deceptively high (3.99 for a single can of Gubna). They easily have the best sake selection in the state, with some famous, highly rated names (and according prices). Staff were super-friendly and helpful. There were mixed bottle discounts (if you bought 3 or more big beer bottles, you got a 10% discount, if you bought 6 or more craft beers of any kind, you got a 10% discount). Also, they have a plan where you open a store account and if you spend $500 in a year, they give you a $25 store credit (5%). Finally, you can break six packs and take singles out.
