Randomly checking my mayorships (as if it matters) and Charles Street came up! That makes me happy because it’s a really good bottleshop. It also make me a little sad as every beer drinker who goes or lives in Boston should go here. Great selection and good staff. Some guy from Toronto shouldn’t be mayor. Go buy some beers Bostonians.

Well located in Boston. Maybe the service is usually nice, but the guy there wasn’t really helpful when we went. Not a huge selection, but some nice imports and good locals. Price are high, but decent for the area. Nice local store, but not one that worth a trip on his own.

Friendliness doesn’t even begin to describe this place. I talked to one of the employees about local brewing companies for a half hour wherein the fellow only left it when a new customer walked in or he had to date something behind the counter. Really nice selection, too. I don’t really give a fuck what the majority of people are saying about this place... I like it, and I will be back. That’s all that matters.

Charles Street Liquors has perhaps the best selection of beers in central Boston although I thought the range was smaller than I remembered it when I last visited after a gap of two years or so. They have beers from local and not so local USA breweries and from other parts of the world. It’s always a pleasure to browse in here because the staff are always friendly and knowledgeable, plus it’s in a lovely old street at the foot of Beacon Hill. (Last visited 27 October 2012).

Tres décu par cet endroit. Section de biere tres petite avec tres peu de 4 ou 6 pack. Pas de rareté ou de surprise et pas la gamme complete des lost abbeys. Ne vaut vraiment pas le détour.

Not a bad little bottle shop... good selection of local brews and imports as well as some Hoppin Frog, Alesmith, Lost Abbey, Avery and some other big players in the craft beer scene. Prices were pretty reasonable but the employees were to busy eating lunch to bother asking if I needed any help. No biggy wouldn’t go out of my way but if I was in the area Id stop in and check it out. Nice creaky New England bottle shop.

Right across the street from Massive Genitals Hospital and its T stop. Smallish place with a very creative selection - Lost Abbey, a bunch of Mikkeller stuff, Rock Art from Vermont if you’re into that. Friendly and helpful staff.

best place in boston perhaps, but beer stores with better selections and lower prices elsewhere - liquor world in porter square and craft beer cellar in belmont for instance. worth a pop in if in the area. nice ambiance.

A pretty normal liquor store with a decent craft beer selection...about 4 large shelfs and a few coolers. I doesn’t deserve the ratings it gets though. I’m surprised the city that spawned BeerAdvocate doesn’t have several that are rated much better. Yes, there are lots of good bottles but for this rating I would expect better and/or more. It being in Beacon Hill I’m sure the prices can be better . Parking is a pain. Didn’t ask for service but they were friendly at check out.

Nice store with a pretty damn good selection of big bottles. Lots of Belgian stuff and local stuff. Didn’t really talk to any of the employees besides the cashier but she was quite nice. Prices seemed on point for the most part. Really good store in Boston.
