Since back in the heady college days of the 90s Iíve 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.
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 wonít 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 arenít too awful, and selection is the best in the Amherst/Hadley area. Decent import selection. I probably wonít 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.

They were playing morphine in the backgroung. Nuf said.
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.
Best beer selection in the Northampton/Amherst area. Yeah, itís dusty and staffed by clones inured to serving the needs of troglodytic UMass students, but it is all about the craft and import selection, which is very good.
