Best Store to buy craft beer in Cambridge/Somerville. They have hard to find beers from all Craft and imported craft suppliers. Their import section is one of the best in MA. Also, they carry a large number of artisnal spirits.

I have gone here for 10 years and have known Al Reitz all that time. Very very knowledgable for beer and wine. They have the largest Belgian beer selection in the area. Fairly large English and German selection too and an outstanding microbrew selection as well. Highly recommended. You can split up six packs into singles to taste test everything you want to! They have rare beers. I have had a few things that aren’t around anymore. Al will point those out to you so you can savor their magnificence before no one else can anymore.

Great selection. Alan, the manager, is the guy to talk to when you need to know something. He’s VERY beer-wise. They get alot of unique stuff in there. Another place I try to stop every time I’m in Massachusetts.

I used to live down the street, now I make trips from New Hampshire to buy my brews. It’s definitely worth the trip- Downtown’s selection always changes, and it’s a little pricey, but they are willing to let you break up 6-packs which is certainly a plus. I have always had excellent service at this establishment, and anyone who complains about parking should check out the parking lot around the back!

I’ve been here a few times. Service varies. Some employees are very knowledgeable, Some are not. Great selection, Bit pricey. Good Belgian selection. Would visit again.

One of the two reasons(Redbones is the other) for stopping in Davis Sq if you’re in the area. Yes they may be a bit overpriced on some items and yes the staff can sometimes have an attitude, but this place has never disapointed me, I always leave with hard to find,high quality selections and they will sell singles of anything.

Quite simply, a great beer store - I discovered many regional brews I have never seen in other area store (some of which I’ve never even heard of), and scored some hard to find belgian stuff (that I also haven’t seen at other stores) such as oud beersel framboise - the tatooed kid behind the counter seemed to know his stuff - I went in expecting outrageous prices, but I wasn’t really shocked by anything, and some prices were even quite a deal (5.49 for Nogne O Imperial Stout) - this place is better than Charles Street Liquors, and has a better belgian and other import selection than Julio’s - this may become my only essential stop for beer when in town.

This is the other requisite stop in Somerville, right after putting your name in at Redbones. A great place to spend your hour plus wait on a weekend. Wonderful beer selection of micros and hard to finds. Staff has always been very knowledgeable on my visits, and was willing to place special orders for me. Much like the rest of davis square, the big knock here is parking. Here’s to hoping you go early or don’t mind walking from Cambridge!
