Colonial Spirits brings almost 50 years of experience in the sale of beer, wine, and liquor through their retail store in Acton, Massachusetts. In 2007 Stevens 470 worked with Colonial Spirits to build a website that allowed them to sell alcohol online for regional delivery, as well as pick up in their Acton store.
