Looking for some stores that carry a wide range of rogue beer. Tried looking on their website couldn't find anything.

Thanks!

  1. Bauer Wine and Spirits, Charles St. Liquors, Downtown Wine & Spirits, or Marty's would be your best bet. Further out - Gordon's in Waltham, Colonial Spirits in Acton, Julio's in Westboro, Harrington's in Chelmsford, or any of the better Kappy's.

    Every Rogue beer that I've bought in the bottle in the last few year's have been horribly oxidized - so good luck getting some fresh stuff.

      If you shop at Charles St. Liquors for beer, oxidation may be the norm. That place is very cavalier about stocking dated beer.

      I once brought it to their attention and the clerk looked at me and said, "If you don't buy it, somebody else will."

        My purchases of Rogue were from other beer stores in the area. I have seen many a dusty bottle at Charles St. though - have to know what can hold up and what can't. I have only bought lambics at Charles St. since they used to stock Hanssen's that no one else had.

        Know for a fact that Downtown Wine & Spirits in Davis Sq has several. (They specialize in this sort of stuff and sell a fair amount of it.) My favorite liquor store for beer.

      3. Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge had some Rogue a couple of weeks ago. Also Atlas Liquors in Quincy carries it.

        1. I have seen several different types of Rogue at Marty's in Allston, on the shelves as opposed to in the coolers. Bear in mind that I don't shop there often (I prefer the selections at Martignetti's and Blanchard's) so I can't tell you if they have any in stock now, but I know for sure I've seen them there in the past.

            The selection at Downtown is great. The prices, on the other hand, are a bit high.

          2. Liquor World in Porter Square has a good selection of the Rogue beers. So does Whole Foods on River Street. Many of the Boston-area Trader Joe's will carry just one or two of the Rogue brews.

            1. Ive seen multiple varieties of Rouge at both Sav-Mor Liquors in Somerville/Cambridge and Downtown Wine and Spirits in Davis Square.

              1. Blanchard's in JP
