Default Good Package Stores outside of Boston?

I'm looking for two specific locations: Around Acton/Concord heading BACK towards boston (off of rt 2 is fine), and then somewhere around Dedham/Norwood aread. I haven't found a good one yet, and would love some input.

Check out the reviews on beeradvocate --

I like Harrington's in Chelmsford - it has a great selection, but it's a little out of your way

Looks like Colonial Spirits in Acton or Marty's in Newton might be a good place to start

Holy crap! I drove past colonial spirits twice last week - subway is about 1/4 mile past and I went there for lunch. I now know where I'll be going after I get out of work schweeeet

Yeah - Colonial is pretty good for beer (but definitely wouldn't know it from the outside). Was in there a few times when I was working out that way - decent selection and the staff I talked to seemed to was pretty knowledgeable. And, if you ever make it into Davis Sq (Cambridge/Somerville) check out Downtown Wine & Spirits (not too far off route 2).

Good to hear. I work right on Rt 2 in Acton so I'm just glad to hear that there's a place to go

The best beer comes out of Athol.

Sorry. I heard Route 2 and couldn't stop myself

Check out Tri Town Discount Liquors in Canton. They have a great selection of everthing; beer, wine liquor, + a very good stock of specialty beers.

Also, Walpole wine and spirits is ok. They have a good selection of wine and liquor. Beer selection is OK, but they do have a small homebrew section.

Joe -

For Norwood/Dedham, The Wine Express is on Route 1 South just past University Avenue

Further down the road, a few miles, is Palumbo's in Walpole also on Route 1 next to a Big Y Supermarket

Just past University ave heading towards norwood? Don't you mean the wine press? I went there recently and it was absolutely horrid.


I haven't been to Walpole wine & spirits for a while, but I do remember them having a small homebrew section which is neat.

I went to Colonial Wine & spirits this past week. Very kick ass selection, and if you buy 12-23 bombers you get 15% off. 25+ bombers and you get 20% off. Pretty decent if you ask me.
