A nicely laid out store, that is clearly featuring the vast quantity of beers they have available. The service seemed ok, I didn’t have much interaction with them. The selection was probably the best I have ever seen in terms of beer. There were all the usual suspects, local beers and growlers, and a huge, and well-organized supply of beers from around the country and world. The prices were pretty good too. A top-of-the-line beer store! I probably could have spent a couple hours there, but sadly, we didn’t have very long.
Has a large selection, but in my opinion their key to my heart is that they allow you to break up all there six packs and pay single bottle price. I went their and created a heavinly six pack of storm king, oaked arogant, and lagunitas
Nothing like Ryan and Casey in Greenfield,or Town and Country in Springfield, this was still a better than average beer store. Good selection of primarily local brews.
A good store for beer, sure.Claims of this being one of the best stores in the state, no.
This place has an amazing selection. Everything from New England specialties, to Alesmith and Stone and a very nice selection of Belgian beers. This was the only place on the trip with Alesmith, so I stocked up while I could. Half the store is dedicated to beer, and it’s certainly worth a stop if you’re anywhere in the nearby area.

Huge selection of beers from everywhere in the world. Rows of American micro singles, racks of corked bottles and a rare beer display case for when you feel like spending some real money. Overall good prices and expert advice from Hopistotle420. They also appear to have a great selection of wine and liquor. One of the best beer stores that I have ever been to. For some reason each time I drive through Amherst I end up here.
Spirit Haus is a must! They always have an enormous selection of beer in many different styles with some rare and difficult to find beer. We always find new beer when we stop in, about 6-8 times a year. Quite an interesting setup. The service is great with friendly and knowledgeable staff. There is always plenty of parking in front of the store.
I worked here for about a year my senior year of college at Umass. Great selection of belgians--lambics, trappists, saisons, strong ales, everything. Great domestic and british selection as well. Great staff (depending upon the night) and always some music playing. Big cooler in the back with more beer not on the warm shelves. Check the back shelf in the cooler! If you are looking for a tasty beer, ask for Benn (Hopistotle420). If he is there, he will tell you about the best beer available in the haus. Lots of rare and top shelf wine and liquor also available. I miss this place.
I truely enjoyed my stop there. Good selection of Belgian rareties, British ales (discounted), and major US micros. Had the Concord Rapscallion Blessing 4 pack with a chalice for 9$. Staff were knowledgeable. Even had recommendations from the village drunkard (dont mix beer with Mike’s Hard Lemonade).
