A very solid and worthwhile stop. I was blown away by how many beers were here. I just wasn’t expecting it. One of those warehouse style places, with a mega singles selection. I stopped by just before closing on a couple of days without power at the store and they were still helpful. Broad selection of local, regional, national, and international microbrews.
This is a typical mom and pop wharehouse liquor, and sort of a dive. You walk in and smell stale beer and glass breaking (they must recycle bottles there). Don’t let the appearance fool you, the selection is outstanding. They have an entire aisle dedicated to beer, all neatly organized as well as two walls of beer coolers. Nice selection of Belgians, European, Domestic micros, and most of the beers from the region. I saw beers from Alesmith, Lost Abbey, Newport, Stone Coast, Southern Tier, etc. Prices are average. It appears that they do not sell singles, but I did not ask. Definitely check it out.
It’s been a couple years since I went here so take it for what its worth. Place looks like it was an old supermarket. Kinda run down. Didn’t get any help, no one offered, but was able to find everything ok. Big new england presence and lots of the well distributed craft brews, don’t remember what the import selection was like. This is where I found Ipswich ESB two or three years after it had stopped being made. The brewers loved to hear that when I talked to them at the WBUR fest last year. It’s not that far off 95 so if your driving through Mass you could jump off nd check it out.
This place is mostly about the booze and wine. They have one aisle of beer in the far left of the building. It is divided in three parts: 1. the standard Imports you find anyplace 2. Nationally distributed craft and 3. Local Massachusetts and other New England breweries. The entire reason for my stop was for the local section. The local bottles that where here had been sitting. A large group of summer seasonal and out dated low ABV brews. I guess this area doesn’t have a big craft following. I would try the other locations of Yankee Spirts before this one. Major disappointment.
Very busy location along Route 1. This place has a great selection, and decent prices but otherwise it’s pretty filthy and crowded. No service here. I kept on having to get out of the way of carriages headed for the back of the store while I perused the craft beer aisle. This place is quite crappy when compared to their Swansea location. Hard to believe they are the same company.
It looks like a dive on the outside but on the inside when you head to the left side of the building you will find a nice long row of imports and crafts. I saw a decent selection of English-Scottish-and Welsh brews. In the refrigerators they have the bigger name beers (B-M-C). Toward the back you can find growlers from Massachusetts breweries. Being just a hop, skip, and jump from the Rhode Island stateline, you will find some Rhode Island brews, which I always have a hard time getting my hands on. Their prices aren’t bad. They also do a big bottle redemption business. They are part of a three-store chain in Massachusetts.
I had an opportunity to come here while visiting my brother Robert. It is basically set up like a liquor supermarket, with the beer aisle located on the far left of the building. It is a long aisle and the selection of beers is extraordinary. Lighting is excellent and the area is clean. A plus is that they allow singles to be sold out of the six packs. Nice detailed register receipt too, which helps when I log my beers into my cellar notes. Next time I visit my brother, I will look to come back here again.
no one really knew anything, the worst of the three yankee spirits. Doesnt seem to have to have a big craft beer clientele with leads to some gems appearing on the shelfs. Once in a while to visit place
Large warehouse type store with a huge selection of wine and beer. One entire HUGE row of craft brews amidst thousands of cases of macros. Alesmith, Lost Abbery, Port Brewing, Moylans, Stone, Weyerbacher, Southern Tier, etc, etc, etc. Tons of excellent breweries were represented. Lots of Belgian stuff too. You CAN break up six packs (I asked). Beer manager Ray was very knowledgeable and helpful. He even recommended a competitor when he didn’t have something I was looking for. Awesome.
