Claims to be the largest liquor store in New England. I’m not sure if that’s true but it’s bigger on the inside than it looks outside. The beer lines the back wall except for the rarer or newer beers which are located at the managers desk near the back. They have a ton of local and regional craft at really decent prices. They also seem to put out rather than hold back much of their rarer stuff which is cool if you’re not a local. They seemed to have a real knowledgeable beer guy ready to help which you don’t always see at a liquor store. It’s definitely worth seeking out if you’re anywhere near.

Compared to Julio?s in nearby Westorough, this place has a less impressive and less well-organized beers selection. Still, there was lots to choose from including some hard to find beers. Well worth a stop if you are within a half-hour or so.

An excellent spot. It’s a comprehensive liquor store and they have a great range of beer, with an emphasis on New England breweries. Lots of unique stuff here, in addition to high quality. Also good range of national US brands and imports. Easy-to-find location. Pretty good value. Certainly worth a visit.

Yea, this place is pretty legit. I’d venture a guess that 90% of this place is wine and spirits. Had a clutch selection of whiskey if that’s your thing. Back of the store is beer with a long single shelf of "craft." Had a good selection, New England locals are plentiful. Found some ATG sours, Cisco sours, 3F shelf turds. I should have grabbed a cart but I did not which limited my credit card damage. Prices where average, if not a tad high... But what ever. A lot of these turds would not last but a few minutes where I live.

Great place known for its wine prices and selection also is a good beer store. The beer manager Kenny is really helpful and knowledgeable. When he is not around its tough to find someone that knows a thing about beer though. The building is an old warehouse style place with a wall of craft beer. Some rare imports pop up like Struise, De Molen, etc. Good place to stop and check the stock from time to time.

I’ve been coming here for years, they have the staples, don’t really have any rare gems and prices are fair. On the way back from Julio’s i like to peek, there are some suprises in stock at times, Pannepot, De Molen, etc. The wine here though is the cheapest and best selection I’ve ever seen.

Coming from CT this place was CHEAP. I liked it. The array of both micro and macro along with some totally unknown local nano-brews was pretty amazing. They have a great European selection in there too. Snacks and other alcoholic drinks are available in abundance.

Very good selection with a few gems. Professional service--the wine guy went through every beer in my cart and checked whether or not he could give me a discount. He didn’t know a lick about beer, which actually made his effort all the more admirable. Very good for this type of store.

They have several stores in Massachusetts and they advertise frequently. They live up to hype. Don’t blink or you’ll miss it as you drive along Rt. 20. It’s a good sized place with a large variety of macros, micros, independents, and crafts in bottles, cans, and some Opa-Opa and Berkshire growlers. There were a few I had heard of but not seen before. You can split 6-packs but you pay the going rate per bottle. This place also has many wines and other spirits, some cheeses, and snacks for sale.
