This place is a true diamond in the rough. While Nejaime’s does specialize in wine, they pay excellent attention to their beer selection and offer a very impressive range of beers. Lots of local beers, especially Berkshire Brewing and Berkshire Mountain/Barrington Brewery. A decent range of imports, and a nice array of other US beers. They have some special beers as well; on my last visit they had Firestone-Walker XV. Prices are good and the shop is very well organized. There is also a nice assortment of drinking snacks, like cured meats, cheeses, dips, etc. This shop doesn’t have the variety of the Lenox Nejaime’s, but it is still pretty outstanding, especially when you consider its location in the middle of historic Stockbridge, a town not at all know for its beer awareness. If you’re driving through the center of Stockbridge (i.e. going past the Red Lion Inn and all the other shops) this Nejaime’s is just off the main street. Definitely worth a visit if you are passing through.
