Located right in the Brown University area, a small basement store packed with lots of good beer and wine. The girl working there was very friendly and helpful with recommendations and informing me as to the specials. Took me awhile walking around the cramped space to make my selections. Beers that especially caught my eye: Three Floyds (Alpha King, Dreadnaught, Gumballhead, Pride & Joy, Robert the Bruce), Middle Ages (Beast Bitter, ImPale Ale, Druid Fluid, Wailing Wench), Great Divide, Thomas Hooker, Weihenstephaner, Dogfish Head. Picked up a cold CASE of Thomas Hooker Blonde for $13.99 on sale!!! (not to mention a few others). Needless to say I walked back to my car with my arms full. I will definately be back...highly recommended.

A tiny basement level store, packed with good beer.
A fair amount of micros and imports, but I can get those closer to home - I was here for some Middle Ages and Three Floyd's. Alpha King, Pride and Joy, (they were out of Gumballhead for a week), and from Middle Ages - Wailing Wench, Kilt Tilter, 10th anniversary, and Beast Bitter. And what else did I find - Thomas Hooker Liberator, Imperial Porter and Old Marley, plus Hop Meadow and 6ers of the Blonde and APA. What a haul!
The manager was very nice - telling me about some new beers they'll be getting in (Great Divide soon). The only limitations come from the location - price is a little high and there is no parking - you're on Thayer St. in the middle of Brown so those really can't be helped.

One of those little stores where all the beers are good. Even the wines that greet you as you enter from walking down the stairs from streetlevel are interesting. Just behind the wines is the first rack of beer, and all along the back of the store is the cold cases, and another racks at the far end of the store. All this offers up an excellent, well-chosen selection of the New England stalwarts, Belgians, and English beers. A bit weak on German beers. As a visitor from Mass, I was glad to see Yard's and Thomas Hooker as well. They had several gift packs, ranging from Sam Adams and Saranac to Czechva(sp?) Pivo packs.
The woman at the counter was friendly, and happy to talk beer and the area, and give us directions to help us find our way about.

One of the best selections I have seen in Rhode Island. There are many regional craft brews represented. Plus a lot from England and Scotland which were novel to me. Most of the New England breweries were present. Among the breweries that caught my eye: Hooker, Weyerbacher, Offshore, Cisco and Dogfish. I have not seen these too many other places around here. But then again I've never really gone exploring. A couple of odd things, a couple of the six packs looked mixed and matched, so make sure you are grabbing all six of what you want. Also, they had a lot of winter brews and I know winter is just around the corner, but it seemed like an awful lot for this time of year. I found myself wondering if some could be leftovers.

This, in my opionion, is *the* place to hit if you're around Brown looking for some local beers to take home. They are walking distance from the university, right off the main drag (Thayer) on Meeting St. They have a decent number of imports here, but their real strength is in the NE regional beers. Lots of Dogfish head, both the standard stuff and some more special 22 ozers. Harpoon, Smutty, and also some neat local stuff from Cisco and Newport. The owner really knows her beer too, and was super friendly -- showed me some stuff she'd just gotten in that hadn't made it to the shelves yet. Everything in the store is for sale in single bottles, even the six-pack stuff -- very nice for the tourist on a budget (or with limited suitcase space!). Highly recommended.

This is a small almost hole in the wall establishment. Located below the Meeting Street Cafe on the Eastside of Providence near Brown U. The selection is very ecclectic and includes many high quaility brews. Dogfish is well represented, including 120 Min IPA and World wide Stout. Unibroue beers, Piraat and Chimay are also found here. I have found the staff here knowledgable and quite interested in beer. If you catch the during a lull they are more than willing to talk beer with you and are quite eager to hear of new beers and their characteristics. Again this is a s m a l l place and so shelf and cooler space is at a premium you won't find cases upon cases, but if you're in the area and looking for a little someting to take to a dinner party with you, this might just be the spot. Lastly, it is on the Eastside so some might feel the prices a bit higher than normal.
