Definitely a decent beer store. Its not a huge liquor store so to see an entire aisle and several cases filled with craft beer is excellent. Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, Stone, Avery, Troegs, Great Divide, Bear Republic, Smuttynose, and some international beers as well.
I haven't seen many places to mix-a-six around here, so was excited to check that selection out. Its not huge, but fairly diverse. Definitely some not great items like old summer ales. Plus the bottles on the bottom shelves were very dusty. However, I was pleased with my 6-pack for $10.50.
One of the guys working came over and tried to give me some help. Normally I am happy to discuss beer with folks, but his attitude came across as rather condescending (perhaps because I am female) and he also came across as boastful about their mix-six selection which was decent, but not great.
However, that was just 1 interaction with 1 guy working there. I'd still go back for their selection, although maybe not their mix-a-six selection.

Granite Package Store is tucked away in a very unsuspecting shopping plaza. After reading all the stellar reviews in BA, I had to check it out for myself.
The beer selection is in the back of the store. There is no doubt about it, this place has a serious selection of craft beers from all over. Awesome representation of the american heavy hitters (Avery, Great Divide, Dogfish Head, Sierra Nevada, Stone, Lagunitas, Berkshire Brewing, etc) as well as beers from Germany and Belgium and other countries.
I ended up getting a six pack of 21st Amendment Brew Free! or Die IPA, Great Divide Smoked Baltic Porter and Captain Swain's Extra Stout.
Prices are par for the course. It sounds like others have had some great customer service here, my experience was straightforward. The guy at the counter was efficient and friendly enough. Definitely a good store with an extensive selection.
I went to Union Brewhouse afterwards, which makes for a great Weymouth 1-2 punch.

I went for the first time last Friday for their Spring Beer Tasting. I can't believe I hadn't been to this place sooner. They must have had at least 50 beers to sample. It was like a free beerfest!
After sampling the majority of the beers I made it to the beer aisles. I was amazed at the the selection they had. I have found only a few places on the South Shore that carry a good selection of beers. This place seemed to have all of them! Although, like some of the other viewers have already said - some of the bottles were dusty. I can overlook this if it saves me a trip to Boston to find the beer I want.
The service was amazing (maybe because there were a lot of extra hands and distributors available). I found there prices overall reasonable.
I highly recommend this place

This place is unassuming nestled in a plaza in Weymouth, MA, but like the other reviews posted I agree this place has an absolutely amazing craft beer selection. Out of places I've been to on the south shore, I'd have to say this one of the top places to buy beer. I never did the mix a six, but I found it nice that they had that as an option. I picked up things such as Rogue, Stone, Souther Tier, Ithaca, and Delerium Tremens. I lived In Weymouth-closer to Curtis Liquors so I often went there, but when I went to Granite I was always impressed. I definitely recommend checking this place out.

As noted in other reviews, while Granite may look like a crappy strip mall packie next to a grocery store, looks are deceiving. They offer an extensive selection of beers and often have hard-to-find stuff on the shelf. The prices are right where they should be, and they often will discount mixed cases of bombers-a nice touch.
One caveat-they often allow older, out-of-code beer to linger on the shelf. Unlike other places, they will act upon this issue if brought to their attention, but still one should always check for bottling dates when buying IPAs and other styles that are not suitable for aging.
That said, you often find aged stouts and old ales that are in their prime, and can be reasonably assured that they have been treated well during their time at Granite.
Nice, helpful folks behind the counter, too. I stop by whenever I'm in the neighborhood.

I live in Weymouth and never would have have thought to go here, but just happened to stop in one day because I was in the mall for something else. I was pleasantly surprised once inside. For a small store the selection is great and constantly expanding, the prices are very reasonable, the guys who work there are very helpful, knowledgeable and if they don't have something, they'll find it for you. I'm now a regular and in here at least twice a month and usually end up talking beer with John or Kevin and always end up bringing home something different as well as a few of my faves...great beer store!!

Upped the marks on this on July 30-2010. John the beer manager has really upped the quality and the customer service is outstanding. This has really become one of those drive to stores on the south shore. I left my initial review in here for review's sake though.
Went to Granite Liquors for a tasting last Friday and I was impressed with this little gem. The selection is impressive for a store of this size. They have a full aisle of warm beer and several coolers. Most of the beer prices were reasonable if not slightly cheaper than what I would expect. The best part is that they have a wide variety of singles on about eight shelves that you can mix a six for a flat rate of $11 after tax. While they do not have all their beer there, they have a great variety from Clipper City, Sierra Nevada, Ithaca, and more. Some of the bottle were a bit old and dusty, however most were fresh. The service was friendly and helpful. If I lived in the area, I would go there often.

Just like Milwaukee's fabled "discount liquor"...where did these guys find this stuff?
Outside is unassuming, to be honest I would have never stopped by except it was recommended (big thanks BTW for the speedy responses to my forum post).
Sour/wild/geuze fans will be in heaven. Cantillon, Fonteine as far as the eye could see. INCREDIBLE import section overall. One of the best I've seen. A huge supply of Dieu Du Ciel, Mikkeller, Nogne-O, lots of my favorites and a huge variety within that scope! Truly remarkable selection of Belgians, Scandinavian and some wonderful/hard to find French beers I love as well.
A real winner of a shop. Nice guys (not fascists about my out-of-state ID), and again...that import selection is to KILL for. I will be back tomorrow & whenever I visit Braintree to see my family. Outstanding.

Really unassuming place next to Shaw's that I had been by a hundred times until I saw what glowing reviews it gets here. The selection is second to none in the Boston area, with an enormous full length aisle of bombers and a treasure trove of 6 packs, both cold and warm in the back. The help here, especially for a relative newcomer to craft beer is wonderful. The bearded guy that runs the beer department is both helpful and engaging. As far as selection goes, some of the stuff I have seen here that I haven't seen many other places are Red Racer IPA and Pale Ale, Port High Tide...and it was the first place I saw Baxter's stuff. Prices are reasonable, about what you would pay anywhere else.
My only complaint is that while they do have a clearance shelf of past date stuff, I've seen some still on shelves and, as with any store, check your dates on those bottles that have them (if they apply). Overall, a great store that is worth the drive from in town to stock up now and then.

If you live on the South Shore of MA this should be your first stop to find a rare beer. From the outside it looks like any other strip mall liquor store. Once inside and you find the more than double aisle of craft beer you will understand that this isn't your grandfathers liquor store. A hugely diverse and almost overwhelming selection of craft beer that will make you dizzy your first time. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the prices are average for craft beer. They pretty much have it all.
