Last week I wrote about my favorite stores and bars in NYC. Today I would like to focus on another geographic region, one where many of my readers hail from: Medfield and it's surrounding towns.
I will preface this by explaining that when it comes to craft beer bars in the Boston area, I know very little. Since my area of expertise is NYC, one of my new team members will write about that sometime in the near future.
However, I have learned about a few great stores, and recommend checking them out if you are in back in Medfield.
Medfield Wine Shoppe
Matt expanded his shop a few years ago to include high end craft beers. I have found their selection to be very impressive, as they get a lot of stuff from Wormtown, Maine and other local breweries. He often has a bottle or two open at the front counter, and I have found a few new favorites from those samplings. His wine selection is massive as well-be sure to check him out and tell him Scott sent you.
Harkey's-Route 109 in Millis next to the bowling alley.
Harkey's carries a nice selection of craft beers in addition to their large wine shop. They carry a lot of local beers, like Spencer and Jack's Abby, but I have also found Bourbon County, Maine, Rogue and other brands.
This has a massive craft beer selection, with a fridge full of bombers and a few isles and fridges full of six packs. They have a large selection of Jack's Abby, Cambridge Brewing Co, Clown Shoes and much more. I have found their prices to be very good as well.
Head on up to Northboro and check out Wegmens selection of craft beers. They have a huge selection, both in six packs and singles.
More great local selections at competitive prices.
Needham Fine Wines
Excellent single bottle selection. A lot of hard to find items and great service. They have a large import selection as well as many local beers.
Always looking for new suggestions-comment away.
