A very solid selection, as we as very reasonable prices. I entered this shop at 2pm on a Friday, wandered around for a bit, then I noticed I was the only person in the shop. I eventually met the beer manager who seemed very interested in helping me find something new. He also pointed out their selection of cheeses available, as well as some brews that had just arrived. I was impressed with the prices and surprised to see a few rare beers on their shelves. The brews seemed quite cheap compared to other shops around the city. I made my selections and to finish things off, the manager threw in a free Chimay glass. All in all, an excellent experience- I will certainly return.

Spacious, clean and very well organized store in a good location, with plenty of West Coast and east coast beers at good prices. They do get some rare stuff as well, one of the few stores to get peche mortel and decadence when first released here. Lots of Allagash as well and a decent selection of Belgians. Fairly low turnover allows some stuff to stay on the shelves a little bit longer, so you might actually find some harder to get beers here. Awesome staff who were both friendly and helpful. The wine sampling machines are just amazing too.

On Rt 9 In Brookline. Medium size store. They do have their own parking area next to building. Nice store. Seems roomy inside. hey have a little tasting area in the back on the right hand side as you come in. Beer is in back towrds the left as you come in. Big storefront windows let plenty of light in. Had great service from previous beer manager. Didnít ask for or get asked if I wanted any help this time around. 10 door beer cooler witha small fridge on the side. About 3 doors of worthwhile stuff. Three small aisles, Well 12ft long each if I remember correctly, with a nice mix of alot of the usual Euroís. Another with all the Micros, Stone (Ipa, Ruination, 8th, 9th, Great Divide, Avery, Left Hand, Alesmith, Boulder, HOTD (Fred & Rose) for example. New England represented well with Sam Adams, Harpoon,Wachusett, Magic Hat. Concord, Smuttynose, Offshore for example. Not quitea go out of your way for kind of place, but a real solid store that youíll find something good at if your in the area. While I visited they had some signs up that said they were renovating the beer area so Iíll have to get back to see how it turns out.
