Lots of singles and rare imports can be found here. They had all three vintages of SA Triple Bock and a few Hardyís as well. Tons of Northeastern brews and the staff was helpful too.

It has an almost ski lodge meets dive liquor store vibe which is kinda cool. The beer selection is by most any standard large. Itís a bit random but they have some pretty rare stuff by NYC standards from CA and MA. The prices are good and they have sales on old or out of season bottles. Some Port Brewing IPA bottles with dates I checked were more than 6 months old. The service was non-existent until I was checking out. If this visit was an indication there are definitely gems to be had and a plenty big selection to satisfy most anyone.

Selection complements well what you can find at Table & Vine 2 towns over, with a bit more rarities and odd-ball, one-off Beers. I was able to find a Fantome Babillard and a few aged Galeís Old ales, for example. Prices a bit more steep than T&V, but we got a discount at the cash so it evens out. I rarely got such friendly service at a bottle shop. The guy who took care of us knew his stuff, and even gave us free glasses. Highly recommended.

Big craft beer stock, some very old bottles, doesnt really turn over much. Prices were ok. In a college town so Iím guessing very fresh natty light.

This place has an amazing selection. Everything from New England specialties, to Alesmith and Stone and a very nice selection of Belgian beers. This was the only place on the trip with Alesmith, so I stocked up while I could. Half the store is dedicated to beer, and itís certainly worth a stop if youíre anywhere in the nearby area.

Lots and lots and lots of stuff here. You will find SOMETHING that interests you if you go here. Good ambiance, well laid out, a bit packed in, as it is a small store. Wooden cabinets that are refrigerated are quite interesting. All I can say is, vintage Thomas Hardys. Yes, Iíll take the 92, 95 and 99.

Lots and lots of bottles. Rare stuff as well. Vintages. Belgians. Local micros. If you are looking for beers that you want or havenít seen, then it is worth the trip. Guaranteed to at least find something that you want or need.

The whole time I went to UMass (5 years) I never once stopped in here. Probably because you needed a car to get here (which I didnít have). Awesome beer selection! Tons of micros, all available in individual bottles on one side of the aisle, and tons of individual international beers on the other. They have growlers in the wall oí fridges in the back. Good thing my mom lives in Amherst so I have a reason to come and visit Spirit Haus a few times a year.

A nicely laid out store, that is clearly featuring the vast quantity of beers they have available. The service seemed ok, I didnít have much interaction with them. The selection was probably the best I have ever seen in terms of beer. There were all the usual suspects, local beers and growlers, and a huge, and well-organized supply of beers from around the country and world. The prices were pretty good too. A top-of-the-line beer store! I probably could have spent a couple hours there, but sadly, we didnít have very long.
