Visited later on a friday afternoon. In a pretty active area of town. Nice selection of beer and liquor. More of an emphasis on the liquor. Mostly six packs and large format bottles. No byo section that I found. Decent shop all around.

Visited May 2016. Beer section isn’t large, but the selection is good. Plenty of locals and regional brews to choose from, and plenty of imports as well. Left with several bottles.

Nice place located on a popular shopping street in Beacon Hill. I don’t usually ask for service but had a question about available of a specific then was redirected towards multiple other similar beers, new craft breweries, etc. They recently got Wicked Weed which is something I was looking for. They had of course plenty of MA stuff too. Good variety of lambic too: Boon, Lindemanns, etc. They have lots of wines too, more than beers but the selection of beer is quite good. I don’t know if they sometimes get special releases but they didn’t have any when I was there. Their price is quite on the high side though. Lots of beers that I’ve been at other places where much cheaper elsewhere. I guess it could be because of the location. I’m sure the rent is quite expensive on this hype street. Anyway, if I’m ever again in this area, I’ll sure go again

Great store. Large beer selection with reasonable prices for the city. Big focus on US-wide craft beer, and plenty of New England stuff too. Good selection of Belgians too, but not too much from other places (Denmark, Netherlands, etc.)

It’s a well laid out bottle shop that carries a moderate selection of Belgian ales and breweries closer to home in MA. I spotted stuff from Night Shift, Mystic, Enlightment and other local breweries in the region and neighbouring states. Bottles are split between singles, sixers and large bottle formats. I didn’t interact with staff on this visit but they were polite to greet on entering the store. I’m sure I’ll stop by again to pickup bottles before leaving Boston and prices seemed reasonable for the area. Fun place to browse the stock.

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).
