Where do I begin on this place? They have a fantastic selection of beers: Troegs, Victory, Berkshire, Southern Tier, Bear Republic, Speakeasy, Rogue, DFH, Allagash, Founders and many, many others. I visit at least once a week to stock up. They recently brought back Great Divide which was a welcome surprise. The service is pretty darn good, I've been given many great recommendations by the staff. If you want anything they can get it for you. My only complaint is that occasionally they have some beers that are past date, but recently I have seen them start marking down these beers to move through them.

Being my primary source of beer, I like Curtis Liquors. They have a good selection of both warm & cold beer in a wide variety. Their craft beer aisle is about 25 ft. long with 3 shelves (not counting the refrigerated section). I have noticed over the past few months that the craft beers are starting to take over space in the next aisle as well(space taken from crummy wine coolers, etc.), which is always a good sign. On my last few trips there I have seen some of the following craft brewers products: Harpoon 100-Barrel Series, Westmalle, Duvel, Orval, Rodenbach, Ommegang, Allagash, Victory, Stone, Rogue, Oskar Blues, etc. This past weekend, I've even noticed that they've started handwriting signs below certain selections (Oskar Blues Dale's Pale Ale, for example) which explain the beer. Kind of a "Manager's Choice" selection.
The only downside to this place is the service. I've never had anyone come by & ask if I need help or have questions with anything & I am there every weekend. As they seem to be paying more attention to the craft bews, maybe this will improve. The staff are generally very nice & helpful when sought out (except for grouchy guy in recycling area!)
I have seen numerous beer tastings at Curtis from a number of craft breweries, the most recent I've encountered being Sherwood Forest. They do have more wine tastings than beer, but maybe this is also changing.
In a nutshell, Curtis is good for the selection & price. It will remain my primary beer store....

I live right around the corner from Curtis and stop by every now and then to see what's new or on sale. It's mostly a wine store, but they do have a pretty good selection of craft and specialty beers, but really nothing out of the ordinary. I've been in this store at least 100 times and have never been asked if I needed any help, not that I need any, but I just realized it and found it strange. Prices are about average and if nothing good is on sale, I'll go home empty handed and stop by Granite a few miles away.

This place has a section about 15 feet long and 3 shelves high for American craft and the same for imports. American side is mostly bombers with select 6 packs mixed in and the import side also has mostly larger format bottles with smaller ones mixed in. They have most of the standard stuff and good amount of the more limited releases. Of all the times I have been here over the past 2 and a half years I've been acknowledged once aside from being in line at the register. Prices on bombers and six packs seem to be slightly higher in regards to other places in the area but limited releases tend to run much, much higher than most places, $5 to $7 more in some cases.

I love this place. Other reviewers have mentioned that they've never been helped with their beer selection, but I have had a vastly different experience. Both Mike and I believe his name is Joe have a great knowledge of the beers they sell and have several new suggestions every time I see them. The store has recently expanded their selection to a full aisle about 20-25 feet in length. The selection is impressive and ever-changing, and the people there really have a passion for the beers they sell. Easily the best beer store on the South Shore and I would say it now rivals most of the stores in Boston and Cambridge.
