Readers' Choice: Best Liquor Stores in RI

Patch readers picked their favorite store to stock up for those summer BBQs. Check out the winners throughout RI and southeastern Mass.


The unofficial start of summer — Memorial Day — is only a week away. Time to break out the BBQ pit and kick back in the yard with your favorite frosty beverage by your side.

Feel an ice-cold beer? How about a nice glass of whiskey to enjoy with a cigar? Maybe a refreshing vodka-tonic or pinot grigio? Whatever's your liquid vice of choice, you probably have a go-to package store to stock up.

Patch wanted to help readers decide where to head to find the best selection, best prices or best service of all the liquor stores around. We asked readers throughout the state which store in their town is best. After five days of voting, the winners are in. Check out which liquor stores Patch readers think are the best of the best and support your favorite in the comments section below.

Even better, head to your favorite store, pick up your favorite drink and enjoy a BBQ in the backyard. Then, upload pics of your party to the article below!

The Patch should do a comparison shopping trip. See what a Bud Light 6 pack costs at the top 10 liquor stores. Do the same with a popular red wine, white wine, and champagne. I think people would be surprised.

That's an interesting idea Eddie. I find prices tend to really fluctuate depending on where you go for any kind of edible... What else do people look for on the cheap?
