This store has a nice collection of crafts as well as macros. There is a little something for anyone. One row is devoted to larger singles, another devoted to 12 packs and cases, and there was a cooler full of beers. There are beers I have not seen elsewhere. Local brews included The Peoples, Berkshire, Haverhill, and Opa-Opa in bottles and in growlers. There was a nice collection of Belgians including Westmalle, Debuisson Scaldis, Brouweirj (Duchess de Bougugne), Moinnette, and more widely available ones like Chimay and Piraat. I saw a few one-off dated brews; some going back five years. There is a small knockdown section where you can get beers that are near or past their expiration date for a lower cost. Off to the side is a tasting room with tables and a TV. Prices are fairly reasonable. It is located on busy Rt 2A just a few miles off I-495. Not too hard to find.

Great place. Good selection of imports and American micros. Was very impressed when I went in 2010, much less so this time, but still a good place.

I stopped in here for the first time on Sunday Amid rows and rows of giant packs of macro lager there is some really great beer in this store. The back wall of the store is fitted with at least a dozen cooler doors with warm shelves opposite holding the bulk of the micro selections. Large format packaging fills the left side wall of the store. Celebration 12 packs for 12 bucks is pretty good for the area. Lots of mass centric brews as well as a fair assortment of the rest of the country and the world. The beer guy came out and asked if he could help me with anything and even made a phone call about some Firestone Walker beer for me. Pricing is average to a bit above. Its a bit of a drive for me, almost as far as Julio’s. I would not hesitate to stop here again if in the area.

Much more of a selection for wine and liquor. The beer cooler spans the length of the back of the store and more beer selections line one of the store’s sides. The best beer selection is on the shelving facing the coolers. Beer is difficult to find as it is sorted by country of brewing and not by brewer itself. Not all selections are on the shelves so it helps to chat up the staff and ask for rare beers they keep in the back.

One of the best selections in New England, I think they have over 800 beers. Tim is their beer guy and is always helpful with recent additions. Prices are competitive. Very easy to spend over $100 on beer. Most beer is along the back row and on the left side as you go in.

I went there because I heard a few weeks ago that they had Alesmith Speedway and Stone Double Bastard. Sadly, they didn’t have either when I stopped in. They did, however, have the second most impressive selection I’ve seen in the area (after Julio’s). There prices seemed more expensive than most places I have been to, but they allowed any 6 pack to be broken up to singles, which I loved.

What a place! All kinds of good beer, with America and Belgium well represented. Stone, Moylans, etc. To top it all, they have Alesmith! After 3.5 years on Ratebeer I finally got my hands on Yulesmith, Old Numbskull and the others. Nice discount on singles too. I may never be in Massachusetts again, but if I am then this will be a place to return to.

My wife found this place on her way to trader joes in the area. Unbelievable!! First of all the parking is very good, being that it is in Acton the traffic isn’t bad. Secondly they have a recycling center there which is great to bring your old beer bottles to "discount" or off-set the .05 bottle charge. Now lets get to the selections OMG one of the most extensive selections I’ve ever seen. From just about every region I can think of Belgium, US, CAN, Italy, Germany, France, etc. And the prices are very resonable...I tried Midas Touch for the first time from Colonial unable to get at my local package store in Waltham at the time. Colonial is a def must for those looking for a variety of brews at a good price. Also they sell mixed 6 packs for 10% off as well as a mixed 12 pack for 15%.

Tim is an excelltent source for trying new things. Experience with all Belgian beers, Micro, English and wines. They are always on the look out for the unusual and have a true passion for beer. I highly recommend going. You will find things you didn’t expect. You can break sixs into singles for tasting.
