Very good prices, generally the lowest beer prices on the Northshore. Staff service is generally good, but can occasionally be rude and condescending. Selection is quite good. Overall, a great place if you know what you’re looking for d/t great pricing, just don’t expect much useful help if you’re a noob.

April 24, 2008: This is the best Beer Store on the North Shore - basically a big box store in appearance, but a one-stop shop for an excellent selection of craft beers from around the world.
In the past few months I’ve picked up offerings from the following brewers: MIkkeller, Nogne O, De Struise, De Dolle, 3 Fonteinen, Cantillon, Haandbryggeriet, de Blaugies, Panil, Achel, Dieu du Ciel, BFM, Rochefort, St. Bernardus, Hitachino, Stone, Avery, Ballast Point, Legacy, Lost Abbey, Arcadia, Oskar Blues, Green Flash, Smuttynose, Lagunitas, Hoppin Frog, Southern Tier, Jolly Pumpkin, North Coast, Bear Republic, Ommegang, Allagash, Pretty Things, Bruery...as well as the more common Imports and US Micros. Gary, the beer buyer, and Joe are always ready and willing to recommend and point out new-to-the-store offerings. 4/10/14/NA/8/19 = 94
