Selection was pretty good. Prices were higher than most other places around. Service was bad no one asked to help me and the counter girl was rude. I would return if i knew they had something i wanted but other than that theres other places i prefer.

Overall an excellent store with what appears to be quite a selection. Talking with a gentleman there, they are adding more and more to the selection, and the chief complaint he had was that they were running out of room for some of the beer. Iím am somewhat in agreement with gameface23, for some of the easily found beers their prices seem high.

Great selection, awful prices. I have been going there about once a week to buy some hard to find beers. I wouldnít buy anything there if I knew other stores in the area sold them as well. For example, I saw a four pack of Unibroue Le Fin Du Monde there for $9.50. I have bought it at other places in the area ranging from $7.99 to $8.50. Everything there seems to be $1 more than average (which adds up if you are buying a lot of stuff). That being said, they have the best selection that I have found in the Merrimack Valley. Good selection of Belgians and craft brews.

Iíve been here twice while in the area on business. The first time I met a fellow Canadian that was working there and living in the are for years and he was very friendly and helpful. Iím not sure if this is commonplace but they allow you to take singles from six-packs which is great if you are looking for a variety of beers before you commit to a six pack. Second time around they had Moylanís Hopsickle and 4 others where the first time they only the Scotch Ale so I guess their selection changes quite regularly. Definitely the best selection in nothern Mass.

Pretty solid selection, decent prices, some real rare gems hiding in this place... I loved the variety of German brews at this place, and the prices were really reasonable. The selection of Trappists was pretty exciting, and the prices werenít too hard to take. I was only there for the beer, but the wine selection was pretty huge. A lot of great beers, way too many to explore in one trip. Iíll be back again and again...

An nice store, with decent prices and an excellent selection. Loads of Belgians, as well as some hard to find California brews as well. Loads of Alesmith and Moylans, and the singles available are a definite plus. I had trouble with the service, however- it seemed as though my request for a box to carry my purchases home in was quite a pain for the middle-aged woman at the counter. Still, the prime location and selection will certainly have me returning soon.

Andover liqours is located right of 495 in a plaza with Market Basket and a Citizens bank. As you walk upon the store it doesnít look promising but once your in the excitment begins. It is a medium sized store. As you enter it is all wine upfront, as you walk to the back there is a small redemption center which is always key. All the room temp beers are in a long "L" shaped aisle with any spill overs adjacent to the redemption center. Most of the back refrigerators are beer and dedicated to craft brews. The selection is tops though, as good as any selection Iíve seen. Moylanís, BBC, Unibroue, Six Point, Oskar Blues, lotís of Belgianís, etc. The only problem is that there is dust on some of their products although the dates seemed fine on the ones I could check, it could be once they hit the shelves there is little "up keep" but I will check in a few weeks for an update. Overall this is a great store and it is now one of my new places.

UPDATE - Good selection of stuff from across the country and a slightly larger than usual imports section. Stock probably doesnít turn over as quickly as it should. Iíve seen some dusty bottles. Not a special store, but tops for Andover and surrounding towns.

Been here a number of times and itís been quite the hidden gem. Being the only place in MA that I have seen Westvleteren at, as well as Rodenbach Alexander, some old Thomas Hardys, vintage DFH 750s, plenty of old English bottles and pretty much everything in between (1998 Anchor OSA Magnum was 9.99!). Great prices, selection covers everything you would be looking for. Had some 1998 Cuvee Renes as well. Though, the last time I was there, it looks like they sent back a bunch of the hardys and cuvee renes that werent selling so well. But well worth a stop, donít let the lousy strip mall facade fool you.
