Since back in the heady college days of the 90s I’ve thought of this place as kind of a beer mecca. I still make the ride up now and again to find little has changed. Great selection, current and older rareities and fair prices.

Good selection, although several imports were well past their best by date.

Has a large selection, but in my opinion their key to my heart is that they allow you to break up all there six packs and pay single bottle price. I went their and created a heavinly six pack of storm king, oaked arogant, and lagunitas

I was pleasantly surprised by what I found at Spirit Haus. Well-organized store by brewer and import/domestic distinction. I like that they will break up six packs and sell singles. Service is decent - the employees won’t go out of their way to help someone without the customer asking for it, but are glad to help when asked. Perhaps this was because the store was packed on my Saturday visit. Prices aren’t too awful, and selection is the best in the Amherst/Hadley area. Decent import selection. I probably won’t be going back as this place takes a while to get to after meandering through college-town Amherst with people walking everywhere and traffic is a nightmare for such a small town.

Great place in the Amherst area for beer. An incredibly wide selection of both six packs and bottles from around the world. Prices were reasonable and selection is hard to beat.

A diamond in the rough. Huge selection of rare beer. Wasted selection on a college crowd. I have visited the house more since graduation and wish I had a more refined taste when it was a 5 minute walk to the Haus rather than an hour and a half drive.

Huge selection of beers from everywhere in the world. Rows of American micro singles, racks of corked bottles and a rare beer display case for when you feel like spending some real money. Overall good prices and expert advice from Hopistotle420. They also appear to have a great selection of wine and liquor. One of the best beer stores that I have ever been to. For some reason each time I drive through Amherst I end up here.

Spirit Haus is a must! They always have an enormous selection of beer in many different styles with some rare and difficult to find beer. We always find new beer when we stop in, about 6-8 times a year. Quite an interesting setup. The service is great with friendly and knowledgeable staff. There is always plenty of parking in front of the store.

This place was incredible. As noted, they had an great selection of vintage Thomas Hardy’s and JW Lee’s, including some I hadn’t seen in other places before. Pretty much everything under the sun made by Dog Fish Head was available here as well. Prices were also decent, with a discount available with bulk purchasing (or at least I got a discount and I was definitely buying a lot). The staff was very helpful and friendly. Got some good tips regarding other stores to check out and they even went to their backroom to grab me a few things that had not been on display yet when I asked after them. Overall, superb experience. I definitely recommend going here.
