The name may be "Ball Square Fine Wines", but I assure you, we are much more than a fine wine shop. In case you weren't aware, we're very passionate about all spirits, including BEER. That's right, friends, the lovely liquid that one of our founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin, once so highly proclaimed as "proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy," has grown into a cultural phenomenon. And yeah, oh yeah, we be blog'n accordingly! So, whatever faith you may follow, sleep easy knowing that our shop offers a wide spectrum of the finest ales and lagers from all over the world. (We did, afterall, come in second in the recent Weekly Dig "Best Of" Boston for our beer selection.)
Just to give you an idea of what I'm talking about, I'd like to mention a couple of new additions to our selection. First, Narragansett Porter: a Rhode Island tradition that has made it north to Boston in a limited release. Pleasantly dry and sweet, I defy you to find me a better Porter for less than nine bucks a six pack (after taxes). And it comes in 16oz cans, no less!
On the other end of the spectrum: "Tactical Nuclear Penguin," an Imperial Stout from Brew Dog out of Scotland costs $119.99 a bottle (before taxes). The brew that, just lat Fall, set the world record for strongest beer ever created at 32% Alcohol By Volume! The record stood for some time before a German brewery produced one at 40%. Not to be outdone, the staff at Brew Dog went on to quadruple their efforts to create the quad IPA "Sink the Bismark" ($163.99), clocking in at an astounding 42% ABV! We're proud to have brought a couple of bottles of these groundbreaking Scottish beers into our shop. Either would be a crowned jewel to any beer buff's collection, or a fantastic way to bring a group together during a holiday celebration.
