Bonne sélection pour une petite surface, beaucoup de brasseries locales, quelques raretés mais rien d’incroyable. Service impeccable de ce qui me semblait être le proprio. Malheureusement, ce fût le lieu d’une mémorable débandade: l’annulation du EBF.
I never would have known about Redstone had it not been for an email I received from them saying they had some items I had posted as hard to find. I setup a larger order and dropped by 2 weeks later to pick them up. Three beers that are impossible to locate were being saved for me and they charged me exactly what the brewer charges and not a penny more despite it taking weeks to track down a bottle I was interested in.
The store is a bit cramped but they make due with a fantastic layout and work their butts off keeping bottles fresh and priced appropriately.
These guys KNOW beer. It’s awesome talking to them
This is my new beer store. Not just because the selection is fantastic but because the guys running it know what they’re doing and bend over backward for every customer that walks in the door.
Stopped in at Redstone was on my to - do list. I was in the Stoneham area on Sunday and had to stop. The beer manger knows what to order and has a lot of harder to find bottles from New England Breweries as well as Imports. The selection was so good it really caught me off-guard. The prices are comparable to nearly any other place in Massachusetts. They actually could use a bit more room as they had more the shelves can display. I will make a return trip here and really is worth a stop if you are in the area.
***update*** they moved to a larger location in the same shopping center. and it is much larger!!
Stopped by here recently when I was in the area. Very small and crowded. Beers everywhere no ryhme or reason. Lots of very pricy bomers and 750s. Multiple scattered coolers with cold six and 4-packs. Prices are higher than average. They need to expand, soon!
I stopped in here for the first time this past weekend while I was passing through on my way to Chelsea. A few turns from the off ramp but nothing my gps couldn’t find. Its in a shopping mall, but in a weird back corner next door to what used to be a supermarket but is now closed. Anyhow lots of easy parking on a Saturday afternoon. Looks like any typical neighborhood packey, long store front, register against the right hand wall, liquor and wine front and center, beer off in the back. Lots of warm beer available on multiple sets of shelves, multiple floor displays, as well as most of the 10 or so cooler doors. Great variety of local and regional beers with an impressive Belgian selection. Service was attentive even if I did stump the kid asking about Firestone 15. Prices seemed average for the Massachusetts market which I find higher than at home in NH. If I were in the area again I wouldn’t hesitate to stop in. Great selection.
This is in a plaza on Route 28 in Stoneham. They need more space to grow in this store. The liquor aisles kind of merge with the beer aisles. They are so cramped for space that they put mixed bottles of beer on top of the coolers and high on shelves that are a bit out of reach. But who cares considering the fine selection of local, regional and international beer. They break their beers shelves out by region to make it a little easier if you are looking for something. But you will be stumbling over mixed 12-packs in every corner as you work your way through this store. Mix and match allowed with a 10% discount when you buy 6.
This deserves to be higher in the list than it is. Gave an extra point or two to combat idiot creep in other scores. This is one of my favorite beer stores to date. Sure it is in a Mass strip mall out of the way and looks every bit a normal package store until you walk into the beer section (about half the store in the back). They have an extensive selection of MA and New England beers like you can’t find in Boston at all. They have huge selections from the likes or Pizza Port Lost Abbey, De Molen, Struisse, the gypsy brewers etc. Two very important things...the guys who work here are super knowledgable about their product. And they care a great deal about it being fresh, especially lighter ABV and hop centric beers. Major props for that. They took care of me extremely well. I will go back any chance I get when back in MA.
Redstone is located in a shopping center near the 128/93 merge North of Boston. Typical liquor store set-up, so beer is in the back. Biggest selection I’ve seen outside of Julio’s in the state. Was given a tour of the selection by the very helpful staff quick to point out fresh arrivals. Beers are organized geographically with just about every brewing nation represented. Tons of new and rare offerings - including many hard to find gems from the West coast and Europe. Prices are a little higher than other stores in the area, but volume discounts quickly alleviate the difference. I’ll be coming back...
Great bottle shop tucked behond a shopping strip mall located just near 93 and 95... Nice bottle selection of some domestic and import rarities as well tons of great local bottles. The guy behind the counter gave a quick tour of the layout and was eager and willing to answer any questions about prices and favorties among the local breweries. They also offer a 15% discount when you get 12 bottles or more... well then that seems like a no brainer ! Looking forward to passing through there anytime I head down to the Boston area.
Beau petit liquor store/beer store dans un centre d’achat a environ 30min au nord de Boston dans le trajet vers Mtl. Tres belle sélection de biere américaine et autre et de belles petites découvertes. Le staff (2 employés sur place) était tres gentil et disponible. Suggestions, 15% off, discussions sur leurs bieres favorites. Un excellent pit stop!
