Great selection of 22oz and cork finished 750s. Interesting Belgian beers included De Ranke, Gouden Carolus, and Houblon Chouffe. New beer table featured Thirsty Dog Robust Porter and Imperial Stout from Maryland and Pennichuck from NH. Staff was friendly and courteous and didn’t bother me when I told them I was browsing. When I’m in the southern half of Rhode Island, it is definately my beer store of choice.
This is the only place in southern RI to go for good beer. They have a nice wall of singles to keep me occupied, and they get new stuff in fairly often. A majority of my ratings were purchased here, so look at them for an idea of the selection.
Nice place that has a wide selection of New England seasonals, and a good selection of micros. Not too many Belgian or German brews, but it was fine with me. Staff was attentive and seemed educated in fine beer. Kind of small, but worth a stop if your in the area.
This is my favorite local store. Nice selection of singles, friendly staff that more or less know their stuff. I buy most of my beer here so I’m a little biased, but it’s one of the few places in the area (college town) where you can find interesting brews.
great selection of beers that you can buy singles of. table in front features new beers that are usually interesting. most of the time they have the full selection of vintage newport storm and the people who work there are helpful. the 10% discount on mixed sixers is great.
This place offers a nice beer selection albeit similar to many of the other bottle shops in the state. What sets this one apart is that they tend to focus more on local and regional beers which is what makes them a great place to stop and stock up.
Excellent selection of northeastern beers -- I had no trouble filling up a couple of 6-packs worth of new beers to try. Also have vintages of Newport Storm -- I was able to pick up the 03, which I have never tried. Friendly and with plenty of space. Not much in the way of foreign beers, but to me the locals more than made up for it.
The only store I had time to visit. A nice wall of singles. Managed to buy a case of local singles that I haven’t had. A little dissapointed that the rows of vintage Newport Storms were all empty, but a nice place to stop for out of towners like me!
Stopped in to browse around and was pleasantly surprised to find a good selection of regional singles. Lots of locals and limited releases. They still had one bottle of Newport Storm ’03. Some interesting imports (which I’m going back for).
Update. May 2013. Beware of higher than average prices. Singles of any kind (bombers and 750s included) are going to be very expensive, unless you mix a six. A lot of the singles on the singles wall are dead old. However, the staff is very accommodating and they do get some very nice beers in here from time to time.
Decent store with the mix a 6 offering. Seemed to lean a bit more "BMC" in a lot of their offerings, but still seeing Grey Sail which is always a plus. Pretty friendly staff too. Easy to take kids in too.
