I found myself looking for commercial craft beer while visiting the Boston area. With access to the world's beers in southern California, I was skeptical about the offerings on the east coast. To my surprise Supreme Liquors delivered. I left with a case of world class craft brew and several I have not seen in California. If you are in or around Quincy, give Supreme a try.
Good parking. Standard liquor store format. Wine is offered. Half of the beer selection is refrigerated.
I'm not sure why comment length for reviews is required to be at least 500 characters. Short and clear should be the goal.

Went to Supreme as a result of the posts and opinions I found here on BA. I was really impressed with the selection. Firstly, they have about 5-6 coolers for your basic domestic macros, and then at least 8-10 coolers for all of the micros. A vast selection from all over to say the least. I'm not very well versed in Brews from across the pond and whatnot, but they had micros from all over the US and I was particularly impressed by the amount of breweries from out West that were well represented.
What really put this place over the top for me was when I turned around and had my back to the coolers and came face to face with the shelves. Oh my, what a cornucopia of fantastic pounders (deuce-deuces, whatever you refer to them as)and specialty releases. Found several brews that I had been dying to try and hadn't been able to find and am looking forward to tasting in the coming days. Pricing is fairly reasonable and the layout is fantastic. I would recommend giving this place a try as it very much worth the trip!

Just a heads up, this place doesn't accept out of state id's. I'm 26 and they wouldn't sell to me because I'm from out of state. A wonderful waste of my time.
They do have a great selection of beer. One of the few places I've seen on my travels that carries Innis & Gunn. They carry most of the Dogfish Head line. Being that I'm in the area on a business trip, I was hoping to pick up Geary's HSA. They had it and I was thrilled until I was thwarted by the store being too cheap to carry an out of state ID scanner. Oh well, I'm planning on moving up here in the next few months, but I'll shop elsewhere once I have my Mass. ID.

This store is set on Hancock st. and is pretty easy to find. The staff is relatively helpful but not the most knowledgeable when it comes to the beer selection. I asked if they knew if they carried certain beers and was directed to the manager that was not there. On the up side I did like the fact that they sell 12oz. singles and had decent beer selection. There was a good selection of local beers as well as some foreign beers. The prices were decent and worth coming back for since they are slightly cheaper then other places in the area.

Local to me so it's one of the first places BeerFly led me to a couple years ago. Decent selection of American craft, probably an aisle about 20 feet long, 3 shelves with a few imports mixed in. Probably 10-12 cooler doors filled with American craft and imports. Local beers are highly featured here (Ipswich, Haverhill, Mayflower), $11.99 and $7.99 for all Sam Adams 12 packs and 6 packs, respectively. Sometimes a great deal, sometimes ok, depending on the season. One woman who works here seems to know exactly what they have and what they don't have, but doesn't really know anything about the beer itself and the rest of the staff seem to be strictly cashiers. Used to be able to get a lot of the limited releases here but that seems to have dried up and now it seems that a lot of the stuff that is here has been here for the last 6-9 months.

Supreme Liquors is one of my new favorite spots to pick up beer. They have a pretty good selection of craft beer and a few of the employees actually have an idea of what they carry. This is the first place in MA that I actually found Goose Island and I've been told that they are going to keep the shelves stocked all the time. They do a brisk business so they usually get the pick of the litter for special releases, and i have been told that they can special order anything that I need if available in MA. They may not have the biggest selection, but do pretty darn good with what they do have. Overall I do recommend this place to pick up your beer.

I like this place a lot, it's now becoming a regular place to go. They have a very good selection of beer and from what little I understand wine and liquor as well. Their prices are very good and far cheaper than most places I go. You can get a Sam Adams 12 pk for $11.99 and 6 packs for $7.99. A good price anywhere else would be $13.99 and $8.99. They have plenty of local and New England products and plenty of other American craft brews such as but not limited to Stone, Rouge, Dogfish Head, Southern Tier, Great Divide, Brooklyn, and plenty of imports form over the border and across the Atlantic. The staff is generally pretty helpful, not all of the staff is knowledgeable about the beer but usually someone on duty is. It's not a big place but I'd highly recommend taking the trip over if you're in the area.

I go to this liquor store all the time, and am incredibly happy with it. they have a large selection of beer, ranging from dogfish to duval, at lower prices than most liquor stores in the area. staff is always incredibly friendly and kind, especially one worker who is very knowledgeable about his beer. they recently remodeled the place, making it even bigger, which hopefully gives way to an even larger beer selection than they already have. Definitely stop by, I think its pretty close to local transportation, about a 5 min walk from the wollaston T station, and a 10 min drive from 93

Finding myself forced to stay in Quincy on a recent trip to Boston, I expected to have to go into town to find a store with a decent beer selection. When I checked beerfly and found that this place was on the same road as my decrepit hotel and had good reviews I was pleasantly surprised, if a bit skeptical.
It was conveniently located just a couple of blocks from the T station and quite easy to find, even for a slightly drunken tourist. It is a standard issue, medium sized liquor store. The beer section consists of one full aisle, a few case stacks, and several cooler doors. The selection is about what I expected; very good for the area, but nothing outstanding. A good representation of New England brews (what I was most interested in) as well as Dogfish, Stone, and the other heavy hitters.
The service was good, fast moving lines at the checkout. I wouldn't have expected to get much competent advice on craft beer, but who knows; I didn't ask.
The quality was the only possible issue here. I noticed that several brews were out of date. This might be an advantage for the Imperial stouts, but the ones I saw tended to be hoppy beers, and I was disappointed that I had to stick them back on the shelf.
A pretty good place overall. I picked up several beers that I was quite happy with. Very convenient and considering that I would never have expected to find this selection in the neighborhood, that goes a long way.

This might be the best place to get beer on the south shore. It's definitely the best place in the Quincy/Milton area, and only Atlas comes close.
Good selection, good assortment of rare brands, amazing prices.
Highlights: Pretty full line of Weyerbacher, Victory, Avery, Dogfish Head, Unibroue, Stone, and the usual New England suspects. When I say "full" I'm talking like Victory Moonglow or Weyerbacher Black Hole. Can also find some more obscure gems here - Founders, Bear Republic, etc.. Enough international to satisfy most. Very large amount of craft beer kept in the cooler. Cheapest prices I've seen anywhere.
Downside: This place is so far from the highway that it is difficult to justify unless you live in the area.
It's not quite big enough to justify as a "destination store", but if you are in the area their good prices and good selection are well worth a stop.
