About a block from Whole Foods with a much weaker selection. Mostly their own contracted labels (Mission Street, KBC, Trader Joe’s Vintage, etc) with a smattering of big craft brands like Harpoon, Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, Brooklyn. The main upside to Whole Foods is the prices are noticeably lower. Its pretty standard to find the same sixer for a dollar less here than down the street.

The beer selection here is even less than the WF nearby, but this place does have slightly better prices on cheeses and other beer snacks. Only if you’re in the area anyway.

Visited evening on a Monday. This was the last stop on my walking tour of Boston. In general, this was your standard Trader Joe setup - store wise and beer selection wise. Additionally, they were out of a number of beers, so I would even say it was a bit less selection than an average TJ’s which itself is pretty low. I was staying at the Courtyard next door, so my personal convenience was good. Otherwise, really no reason to hit this place.

Stopped there hopping to find some Unibroue Trader Joe’s exclusive. No luck. Basic commercial grocery (this is no Whole Food) with a 1 row dedicated to beer. This is not the place to sell fancy pricey beer so the place focus is more towards affordable six-packs and the likes. Sierra Nevada, Magic Hat, the cheaper Rogues, Samuel Smith, etc. They had a bunch of their other exclusive Trader Joe’s exclusive but they are all so-so beer. All in all, nothing for the beer geek here. There’s a Whole Food close to this place that is not great but has a much better selection and is a better grocery store.

It’s a west coast chain I started going to when I lived out in LA that has made its way eastward. For foods they have some unusual cheeses, breads, snacks as well as great frozen section for microwaveables. The beer and wine section is almost all affordable things.

Grocery store with a limited selection. There’s a lot more wine than beer, but still there are about 2 small rows of beer. Lotsa microbrews I haven’t heard of, and lotsa Belgian or wanna be Belgian beers like Ommegang. I think the highest rated beer (on this site) was Chimay Blue. If you are looking for some super rare elite beer, this isn’t the place. If you want a rare local microbrew look here. Pricing was reasonable - I paid $5 for Rogues Brutal Bitter, in Harvard square it’s almost 8..

Since the closest Trader Joe’s to Manchester, NH (the location in Tyngsboro, MA) doesn’t carry beer, the Cambridge location is especially nice. Lots of beer from places like Ommegang (talked a woman who normally doesn’t like beer into buying a bottle), Unibroue, Dogfish Head, Smuttynose (where I found the S’Muttonator) as well as their own Trader Joe’s brand of beer.
