Nice store, mostly focused on wine but with a good selection of beer as well. Some local micros, and some West Coast beers too (Stone, Anderson Valley, Ballast Point, The Bruery to name a few). A good, but not great, selection, but a good place to find some good beer if youíre in the Back Bay area.

What Bauer has going for it most is the area around it, which is a great for dining and shopping and simply walking around. I liked Newberry street a lot, and you canít beat a dinner at Clio nearby. Unfortunately the store has a much better wine selection than a beer selection, and while I realize that space is limited, thereís more emphasis here on the everyday than the unique. There were a few things worthwhile, including Ten Fidy and several others of the Oskar series. I didnít see any of the rare beers others on the site here reference, such as Speedway. Given the choice, Iíd recommend Charles Street Liquors. On the plus side, the people were friendly, and I ended up with a few bottles of wine to take home.

A small place, but with quite a bit of selection packed in, numerous shelfs of rare imports and hand-craft specialties. Very helpful staff, and decent prices make it a nice little place for your specialty needs.

One of the shops I stopped in along my way. Well kept, clean nice place down stairs. Pretty good selection. Had some on shelves and some in coolers. Nice staff, asked if I needed help. I was just browsing to get an idea of what was in the area. Worth visiting if you are in the area. Local stuff and other stuff that is harder to find it seemed.

TURDFERGUSON  (152) Durham, North Carolina | February 13, 2008
Visited here back in October í07 while in town visiting some friends and honoring the funk. Nice little store, but they wouldnít allow me to use their restroom which kind of annoyed me. Maybe they didnít have one. Picked up some stuff from southern tier, alesmith, and smuttynose that I canít get in NC. A rather small selection, as they are mainly a wine and spirit store (surprise), but a decent one with some nice brews. Oh yeah, they also had some 2001 3F gueuze that they had just gotten in that day. Yes, Iíll take 2.

Visited here in Aug í02 for the ACS Meeting. Walked over during my first evening in town with a buddy to find some beers to rate in the hotel. Found Aecht and several New England brews to try. Decent selection, prices were not surprising for a big city, and the people were helpful enough.

Weíre on a short trip to Boston this weekend - we were shopping on Newbury street anyway, so we popped in here - this place is highly over-rated - very small space, with a decent wine selection - about one cooler/fridge full of beer, with a few cases sitting on the floor next to it - nothing I didnít see at any of the other local stores (pizza port wipeout, two brotherís bare tree, lagunitas 13 were the most "stand out") - semi-pretentious atmosphere - nothing special, and hardly worth a stop, even if you ARE in the area.

Really not what I expected - several extremely rare beers availalbe but a much smaller selection than I was led to believe from other reviews. Maybe 30 different beers - had AleSmith Speedway Stout though. If youíre in the area already, itís worth stopping by but otherwise probably not worth the effort.

The guys that work here are really very nice. The selection is very good, and I usually have a hard time deciding what I want. Nick is awesome at helping me decide just what I want.

Bauer Wine and Spirits is accessible by the T Green Line - the Hynes/ICA T Stop. Good luck trying to find parking! Very nice, upscale ambience. The service is friendly and knowledgeable. The selection is pretty good - but overpriced. Worth stopping by if you are in the area and have the money. The bonus is the glassware they usually have in stock.
