After a visit to Pioneer Brewing, my wife and I went in search of more beer at Yankee Spirits. The place inside is about the size of a super market. It's gigantic. There is booze as far as the eye can see. The beer is located in the back left. There are about three whole walls of cooler space for cold six packs. Then the back left wall is one massive display of bombers. One of the best selections I have seen in a long time. They literally have everything, and some stuff from breweries I have never seen in in Boston or in MA before. Probably 100 feet of American craft bombers, then Belgian beers, then German beers, then other European beers. I picked up a Stone 11.11.11 for $7.99, then a bomber from Offshore Ale for $3.50 and a 4 pack of Redhook 2010 Treblehook barleywine on discount for $3.99. A manager came right over to the register when I inquired with the cashier about the availability of Pioneer bombers. I could have spent all day in here. This place is worthy of a road trip.

Having visited the one in swansea decided to give this one a try. What a mistake, should have gone to table and vine instead. The place was a mess, all the six packs were mixed together and it was difficult to find what I was looking for. Apparently they do a mix a six, but couldn't find any signs or people to explain how it worked. Got to the register only to find out they gouge you on the mix prices. Like their growler selection, but hate the fact that the deposit on them is so high( yes i know the store has no control over it but still) Extremley dissappointed and would not make the trip there again. Not sure why it is rated so high, other than for the size. The store in swansea is much more organized, has a better selection and actually has people available to help you. I would recommend heading to Table and Vine over this one any day of the week.

Went a few weeks ago to stock up for the holidays and it's been a while since I've been. I remember it being slightly different but, nonetheless, here goes:
This is definitely a superstore, has all of the liqour and a great beer selection for MA. It's not too far away from CT so it's a nice drive there and back. Very nice store for the age that it has, and they always have a great selection. The whole back row is dedicated to craft brews and for what we usually can get in CT and MA, they'll have it for sure (unless of course, if it's sold out). I believe they restock pretty quickly
If you need help with anything, just ask one of the workers and they'll be sure to help you out the best they can and they'll let you know what they have in stock/what they'll be getting in.
Pretty solid place for some awesome brews that I can't seem to find in NECT. Their prices are awesome, I was able to get the Sam's Winter Classic for $11.99, whereas in CT it's still 15.99 or so. That's a pretty good deal for me. I'll be returning for sure!

drove to Yankee spirits this past weekend to check out the fabled selection, it did not disappoint. a superior selection. a long wall of american and international microbrews, plus a dozen coolers of craft beer as well. also a large portion of floorspace dedicated to craft cases.
however, i will patronize Table and Vine more frequently simply due to proximity. i will travel to Yankee Spirits when the few breweries they carry that T&V doestn have a release of something new. breweries like dieu de ciel
all in all a superb establishment

The first time I stepped foot into the Yankee Spirits Sturbridge store it was completely overwhelming. Heaven for alcohol lovers alike. The store is the size of a supermarket with around 20 aisles of wine, 10 aisles of liquor and the entire back 1/3 of the store is dedicated to beer (GREAT CRAFT BEER SELECTION AS WELL).
The beer manager there is extremely helpful and has coresponded via e-mail with me multiple times as well as reserved beers for me in the past with no hesitation.
Selection is top notch and being in CT and traveling to MA I can get beers that I can't find available in my CT go to place.
The only downfall is, I did however find them a bit more pricey than my CT spot which was a surprise with the huge selection and amount of beer they stock you would figure their prices would reflect the large buying power.
Now that MA has a 6.25% sales tax on beer opposed to CTs 6% I found myself not jumping the border as often as when MA had no sales tax. Now I only go to get beers that I can't get in CT.

I've been to this place a couple times either to get beer on a Sunday on my way to a Pats game, or to buy beer not available in CT.
The place is big, like a supermarket. The beer coolers make up a small part of the beer selection, mostly BMC six packs and 40's, with a couple doors for local craft. Most of the beer selection is on a shelf in the back. If your looking for Berkshire, it's in the fridge (since they require their beers to be cold). I'd like them to keep their craft selection in the fridge, but oh well.
The selection is good, especially for getting brands I can't get in CT. The selection is broken down by state or country, with an okay import selection. Prices can get out of hand for some things, so be careful about that. Also, watch out for old stock. I've seen some stuff over a year past their best by date, and I've bought stale, skunked, or oxidized stuff here, and didn't get a response when I e-mailed about it.
Service has been average every time I've gone. I have no problems or compliments on that front, and the only time I've talked to an employee has been for check out. There is a small grocery section with snacks and hors derves.
Make sure to go to BT's smokehouse next door if you go here. Excellent BBQ.

Easy access on and off the highway, but easy to pass by since it's set back from the main road. Large place devoted mostly to wine and spirits, but the beer selection is toward the back wall. Craft beers are lined up across shelves across the very back, organized by country of origin. Many bombers plus 6-packs, and they allow purchase of singles. Good selection, was able to pick up some stuff that's not in CT, but wasn't blown away. Better to drive to Town and Country/Table and Vine. Seemed just a tad pricey for some selections, but nice not to have sales tax.

This is part of a chain of stores with multiple locations in Massachusetts. This one is a bit tricky to find unles you're looking for it. It pops up unexpectedly on Route 20 and is slightly out of eyesight. This store was very much like the other stores I have been to but cleaner. The beer selection is wide ranging and organized by country or state and well marked as to the originn. The prices are well marked too and that's always a plus. There were lots of Massachusetts brewers of course and a few growlers from them but you could find many choices from New England, Pennsylvania, Colorado and elsewhere. There is a good choice of imports from the UK, Scotland, Belgium, Greece, Poland, and Latin America. And you can find expensive limited editions as well as cheap macros. This place is a tad pricier than other big package stores in Massachusetts. But I would still recommend it.

Decided to take a nice Saturday drive to Sturbridge to check out the area. Figured I'd try out Yankee Spirits. Drove right past it the first time through. Not too bad a place. The place was bigger than I would have thought it would be. Large selection of wine and liquor. Decent sized beer section. Large cooler with self serve area. All the Berkshire was in the walk in. Decent selection from all over the country. Reasonable prices, friendly helpful staff. I do like the Attleboro location better, but was definitely worth the trip. Great pulled pork sandwiches right next door.

This was my first stop of a southwestern mass beer trip.
This place was about 30 mins away from me exit 3B off 84E a mile down RT20 on the right.
I drove past it initially, it's set off the main drag but felt retarded when I found it because this place is pretty massive from the outside.
Inside the place looks a lot like Table & Vine in West Springfield.
A lot of wine bottles greet you as enter, specialty foods to the right, beer towards the back and inside the cooler along the left wall.
Very nice selection and in very large quantities. Stacks upon stacks of cases.
The bomber section was a bit disheveled, organized by state of origin indicated with chicken scratched pieces of paper.
I browsed the bottles along the back wall. mostly my favorite San Diego beers and others that are not sold or brewed in shit-ass Connecticut.
They carry a lot of New England beers, stuff from New York and out west. Imports are further to the right along the back wall but I wasn't really paying attention.
Prices are pretty good on most bottles I walked out with eight really good bottles just under $60
and since it's so close I'll be returning.
