Visited on a Wednesday night. Nice little store on the main drag of Belmont. Good selection, well selected, a bit small of course but they do have a lot of local choices. Staff was friendly and helpful. Prices were a bit steep, but quality was there too. Nice store.

Very nice little store located in downtown Belmont. On street parking is a little tricky. This place is obviously all about beer with almost the entire store dedicated to it. Selection was excellent both deep and wide. i was able to find plenty of beers that I have not seen in other MA outlets. Service was very helpful from a functional perspective - plenty of clerks helping to gather, price and box bottles as I walked around the store. Knowledge, however, seemed a bit limited, but perhaps I was picking out obsurities. Prices seemed a little higher than average and there was no volume discount or freebies (even though I spent well over $100 and bought a glass). Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Traffic was so terrible to go to Julio’s that we chose to come here instead. While the store is nicely laid and the staff are friendly and seem to be connoiseurs, the selection is not comparable. They certainly have hundreds of bottles, but for many breweries represented, it was a very partial lineup that was on the wall. To their defense, the place is very small, choices have to be made and it all seems to be in an effort to have the broadest and most intelligent selection that can be with the limited space. No refrigeration although the turnover seems quite good based on the patronage during our visit. Not too many rarities. Interestingly though, for the foreign visitor, they have a Massachusetts wall on which you’re bound to find many beers you’ve never heard of.

Amazing selection. One of the best I’ve seen. Small shop but all of the beers are top notch. A few I scratched my head wondering how they obtained them. A few rare beers are over the top pricey though, so beware. Hit them up if you are near Boston.

I checked this place out. It is a bit tricky to get to unless you know the area. There are over 1,000 beers here sold at reasonable prices. Mix and match OK. Lots of regionals and local beers as well as a few I have not seen before. Worth the trip.

Great store. Biggest selection of Massachusetts I have seen. Lots of brands I haven’t seen anywhere else in the Boston area. Tons of imports. Single and six pack prices. Helpful, extremely knowledgeable staff. Lots of brewers visit for in store tastings. Prices are slightly high, but not bad. Great store.

Tight little store but the pack lots of nice stuff in there. Very friendly staff and a nice selection...well worth a visit if you are in the area. Grabbed night shift stuff here and some 3 font golden blend. Prices were good...a bit high on golden blend but i rarely see that on a shelf at home so why not?

Stopped in here earlier today while I had some free time in Boston. Doesn’t look like the biggest place from the outside but it is much bigger than it appears. Nice relaxed vibe, quite welcoming. Service was good, I was asked if I needed help twice and I talked to the guys a little bit while I was checking out. They seemed to know what they were talking about when it came beer.

Quality was very good, everything I looked at was fresh or aged intentionally. I was able to pick up a Fantôme tulip and Drie Fonteinen pint! I never, ever, thought I would see either of those glasses on a shelf, let alone in the same store. Beer selection was just as good. Lots of different beers from all over the world. Tons of bottles and cans line both walls and down the middle. The likes of Evil Twin, Mikkeller, De Struise, De Ranke, Boon etc. to go along with all of the typical national US brands. Overall an awesome bottle shop. I will definitely return if I am ever in the area again.
