This is one of several stores owned by this company and the focus is always on wine and hard liquor. If you visit a lot of New England bottle shops and package stores like I do they all begin to look the same and this one really does not stand out significantly above the rest. But that is not to say it is a bad store. It does have a decent selection and there is a good number of Massachusetts-based brewers in stock including Cambridge, Berkshire, Clown Shoes, Pretty Things, Mayflower, and Mystic. A large number of Belgian ales. There are occasionally dusty holdovers. For example I found several Vertical 10-10-10’s during my 2013 visit for $9.99. Not a destination store but definitely a good place to acquire some regional beer. Easy to find in a Shaw’s Plaza on Rt. 117 a few miles off I-495 in Stow, Mass.
