Jan 2010 Update..
They've pretty much stopped carrying bombers of good beer. It's 6 pack only land, with a very small selection of higher quality beers. Troegs Mad Elf, Harpoon Chocolate, etc. Beyond that....
Marlborough Square Wine & Beer Company is located on Route 20, in the Marlboro Square Plaza along with Lazerzone and a whole bunch of other little shops. This is actually the former location of the Marlborough Wine & Spirit Co, which is now on the other side of 495 near Northborough. This place only sells beer and wine, so the inside is a former full service liquor store design with rows and rows of former liquor shelves now stocked with wine and 6 pack and cases of beer.
As for the beer selection, it is for the most part a macro and mainstream micro store. Surprisingly though it has a very limited and random selection of super high end and hard to find craft beers. The coolers along the back are filled with Corona, Bud, Miller, Coors, Sam, Harpoon, Sierra Nevada, etc, etc, but then on a shelf they have some limited American crafts, Samuel Smith, Chimay, a few other belgians and on my last visit, Southern Tier Chocolat & Gemini. But that's about it for singles and craft. It's a very striking contrast to see a store jam packed with macros, then to see a handful of beer nerd nirvana selections.
Wine selection is decent but sticks mostly with the bulk 2 for $10 sort of bin selections.
Service is limited, most visits it simply been a single cashier and that's about it.
This is just an odd store. Again, mostly macro and micro land with a few great selections. Not worth going out of your way for by any means, especially with a handful of other far better stores right down the street, but... you can't fault them for carrying a limited selection of amazing beers.
