Is this being held at the Cambridge Brewing Co.? I looked on their site and didn't see anything about it. Thanks!

Sounds good. The only times I'm really up that way is when I'm making a run to Julio's and that's usually on the weekend. But if I ever find myself heading up there during the week I'll definitely shoot you a PM beforehand.

You don't need to go all the way to Westboro for a great beer selection. Check out Yankee spirits in S.Attleboro or Swansea.

+1! When you're at Yankee in Attleboro look for a tall fellow named Ray. He's the beer guy. He know's his product!

I usually go to Julio's with SWMBO and/or a bunch of friends and we make an afternoon of beer buying, wine tasting, buying new hot sauces and cheeses, etc and then hit up a bar in the area.

I found a packy, Cork's Liquors, in Mansfield that I drive by all the time on my way to the LHBS and have never stopped in. I went a couple weeks ago after picking up some ingredients and found a great selection.

Luke's Liquors in Rockland is a lot closer to me than Julio's but I've had such bad experiences in the 3 times I've been there that I'll never go back.

I'll need to check out Yankee Spirits in Attleboro in the near future. And I'll be sure to ask for Ray if I need any help.

I was in there about a month ago. They have such a huge selection it makes me wonder how much inventory they turn over. i walked out with a couple 07 smutty wheat wines. not that i'm complaining about that, but if it were something else....maybe.

They move a ton of product through there. He's a brewer so he knows his stuff.

I'm sure they do, but with that much inventory there is bound to be things that sit on the shelf and waste away.

Anyone from MA needs to check out Colonial in Acton MA.
Pleace is huge and you will find beer from all over the world. If they dont have something for you then they will order it.
