#2300 Julios Liquors from Westborough, MA, United States
Score: 4.4 | Atmosphere 9 | Selection 10 | Value 7 | Service 10 | Overall 8 |
One of the most phenomenal beer stores I've been to, perhaps the best (statlineliquors right there or just behind it). The selection was not only super stellar and unbelievable (AleSmith this side of the Mississippi?), but the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, I only had to name something and they'd send me where I needed to go. Also, I got a handful of recommendations based on what I like. Simply a phenomenal stop, and much thanks to ClarkVV of RB for sending me here. Too bad I missed Clark while our routes crossed as he was on his way to the Kennet Beer Fest.

#2299 Brew City Grill & Brew House from Worcester, MA, United States
Score: 3 | Atmosphere 5 | Selection 8 | Value 6 | Service 5 | Overall 6 |
Well, the beer scene in Worcester isn't all that stellar, so this one is relatively speaking a pretty good stop if you're in need of some beer while in Woousta'. Service was snooty and unfriendly. The selection was pretty solid, multiple taps and lots of bottles. The scenery was a little run down and beat up, but if you're looking more for a bar than a restaurant, this isn't a bad place to go. Food, can't speak to it, but I can't imagine it was all that good. Lock the doors on the way here from the WPI campus, though.

#2298 Amherst Brewing Company from Amherst, MA, United States
Score: 3 | Atmosphere 6 | Selection 7 | Value 6 | Service 5 | Overall 6 |
Did lunch in here after running the sampler. Service was a little slow and aloof. Food was more than adequate, but not outstanding. Parking was the main issue, meters everywhere in this college town. Seating outside would probably have been more fun. Don't look for any outstanding beers here, but I can't pass up a brewpub when travelling, so....

#2297 The Cambridge House from Granby, CT, United States
Score: 4.4 | Atmosphere 8 | Selection 10 | Value 10 | Service 8 | Overall 8 |
Stoppped by here w/ the bro-in-law after a long ride and a stop down in Williamantic for dinner and beer. The Koelsch beer here was absolutely a delight, second to Cologne only in that it was served on draft vs. straight from the wooden barrel. The atmosphere was a little upscale, Granby seemed upscale. The service was friendly and I got to keep the pint glass with my second pint. I'd love to get by here again for their altbier. I can't comment on the food, as this was purely a beer stop at the bar.

#2296 Willimantic Brewing Company and Main Street Cafe from Willimantic, CT, United States
Score: 4.1 | Atmosphere 8 | Selection 9 | Value 8 | Service 8 | Overall 8 |
A very nice selection of house beers to choose from on both visits, as well as a few guest taps of decent quality. Forget about the guest taps, though, cuz their own beers are quite nice. A bit of a bias towards hoppy interpretations of the styles, but that's probably a good thing. Service on both visits was timely, beer knowledge pretty good too (although Cottrell was a practical "guide" on both visits, thanks, Todd!). Food is good stuff too, dinner worthy, not your usual pub type food.

#2295 High Point Brewing Company from Butler, NJ, United States
Score: 3.6 | Atmosphere 6 | Selection 6 | Value 8 | Service 8 | Overall 8 |
Stopped in here one afternoon on the way up to New England, and besides putting up with another customer filling his growler for a Yankee's game, had a great time. The beer selection was limited to about 4 different taps, but each was fairly good quality, the helles hefeweizen their best, imo. Both the brewer and wife were incredibly friendly and helpful. Got a quick penny tour of the facility too. Definitely a great mom and pop place to stop by if you're in the area (and industrial complex, a little tricky to find, so bring along their phone number).

#2294 Papago Brewing from Scottsdale, AZ, United States
Score: 3.9 | Atmosphere 8 | Selection 10 | Value 7 | Service 6 | Overall 8 |
A nice stop if you're headed out of the Sky Harbor airport and have a few hours to kill ahead of time. This place has roughly 30 taps always on draft, featuring 5 or so of their own alongside some pretty nice guest beers, all of very good quality (which definitely makes the Yard House's 128 seem excessive). The service is average, although the help to get a box that was just right for travel home was appreciated. The food is decent, the atmosphere a little upscale sporty (including a cigar area, supposedly pretty good, but I wouldn't know), and the pricing ok.

#2293 Archer Liquors from Chicago, IL, United States
Score: 4.1 | Atmosphere 6 | Selection 8 | Value 9 | Service 10 | Overall 8 |
Of all the online places I've shopped, this one is the best overall. Sure, its selection CAN be beat elsewhere on the net, but it's still pretty darned nice, especially if you're searching for some solid midwest gems unavailable in your area. The email response was prompt and very courteous even before I officially placed an order. The packaging was excellent, all done so well, and yet only charged the straight cost of shipping. Combine that with pretty fair retail pricing on the bottles themselves, and this is a must stop shop, as you won't trade at a cheaper price with a non-retailer.

#2292 Wine Loft, The from Flagstaff, AZ, United States
Score: 2.8 | Atmosphere 5 | Selection 8 | Value 4 | Service 5 | Overall 6 |
This place is located upstairs a few floors, so be careful not to miss it if you're in the area. The selection of beers is pretty large, although if you don't like Belgians, you may not appreciate it as much (e.g. only one German hefeweizen was available). Atmosphere is pretentious and snobby, maybe less so if you're into wine more than the beer. The server on both occassions I've been there has been fairly snooty, certainly not one to strike up conversation. Add to that the pricey aspect, and you shouldn't hit this place before the three brew pubs in Flagstaff; but, if you've been there a few times and want to have a Belgian beer, this is a decent stop for that (it's clearly the best Belgian selection I've seen in Flag).

#2291 Bashas from Flagstaff, AZ, United States
Score: 3.6 | Atmosphere 7 | Selection 7 | Value 7 | Service 7 | Overall 8 |
One of the best selections in Flagstaff (compares to Western Post), this grocery store has an aisle worth passing through if you're not from the area or the West. Not sure if they allowed breaking six packs (probably not), but they also have a handful of large singles to purchase (Great Divide, AleSmith, Stone, SKA, Avery, Reaper, Sammy Smith and other imports, etc....). No idea how good or knowledgeable the service is, as I didn't seek help. Prices were very reasonable, and I was shocked to be able to score AS IPA for only 4.99/22oz (even if it made it out East, no way at this price).
