I stopped at this store before a wedding in Eliot, ME to get some beer not available in Vermont. First off the directions that you get from Google maps takes you to the wrong place (some neighborhood across the street) so it was a bit hard to find - it's in the Hannaford plaza.

They had a pretty larger beer selection with many standard NE beers as well as a few bottles of Cantillon and a fairly large Dogfish Head selection. I was looking for some of the higher abv beers that we couldn't get in VT, the only ones I found were Fort, WWS & 120Min. Last time I was in ME I got WWS & 120Min for $7.50 in Portland, they were $9 here, and the for was almost $20.

Most of the interesting beers that they had were in the $15-$20 range so I ended up only getting a few things. If you're not from NE it's worth a stop but I'd go up to Portland or down to Mass before I'd come back.

The girl working there seemed pretty knowledgeable but she was kind of bashing VT when I told her I was from there, and then she was fairly annoying and just kept talking when I just wanted to look around.

Stop here every time I am in the area. Excellent staff and selection. As good as I have seen in Maine. If it comes to Maine she has it.

Fantastic people work here and will point you in any direction you could go. seriously the guys working in there have basically tried all the beers. Very nice selection hitting the Maine beer Company beers they have them! Want Marshall Wharf...Marshall Who yea very limited Distro hit them up. Want Bissell Brothers? you may find it here, call ahead though. Moat Mountain beers, SoMe Beers, Rising Tides, Bar Harbor Brewing, Cambridge Brewing, Narragansett brewing, some small growlers of Funky Bow brewing, then the big boys Stone, Founders, Victory, Sixpoint, Jolly Pumpkin, Thirsty Dog, UNITA, there are a ton more more that I'm forgetting.

anyway if you are in a 1 hour radius they are worth going too!

This place is amazing.

Staff very friendly, great advice and knowledge, eager to help.

Amazing selection of Craft beer, I was mainly looking for Brew Dog and Dogfish Head, and they had pretty much everything including seasonal and limited releases as well.

They did have an amazing selection of import too, Belgium, Germany, Uk, etc.

Will absolutely go back!

In addition to an excellent selection, Tully's has a stellar atmosphere and very high quality service. The staff is always proactive in helping each and every customer, whether it's explaining various styles of beer or making recommendations based on personal tastes. Selection is very good and prices are fair and reasonable. They also update their Facebook page every time a new beer comes in making it extremely convenient for their customers. I'd highly recommend Tully's if you find yourself in the southern Maine area in need of some quality craft beer!

First off this is the cleanest beer store I've ever been in. Selection was excellent, best German section I've ever seen as well. Pricing was typical for Maine. The cashier was helping me the whole time, very friendly and knowledgeable. Told me about some rare stuff, particularly 120 minute he had in the back room. Glanced at the wine and it was a very decent selection of stuff that you don't find everywhere. Huge glass section and lots of cigars, I smoke a lot of cigars, and they have some good stuff. Again clean and inviting, very pleasant. Singles out of 6 packs! love that, not enough stores do that. this place will be a regular stop for me.

I love stopping at random bottle shops and hunting for the rare finds, it's my kind of "hunting" so-to-speak. At Tulley's "hunting" is useless because the selection is so ridiculous I surpassed my budget in less then five minutes. Picture a 5-year old running into Toys-R-Us, that was me this afternoon. Greatest shop I've ever been to. Cheers.

We visited Tully’s for the first time while on a quick get-away to Ogunquit. It was recommended by a waitress as THE spot for craft beers. When we found the store, our feeling was "oh no...it’s a strip mall liquor store", but that was quickly replaced by "Oh my God, this is pretty darned fine". Selection was huge, well organized by style, sub-categorized by brewery. Lots of choices, and the very well-educated staff was quite helpful. This was a great experience versus the typical trip to the package store. Intelligent conversation about excellent beer in a nice, tidy store. Prices were OK - some things higher, some things lower than my local stores. An Ogunquit weekender isn't unreasonable for us, so definitely worth the couple of extra miles.

I stopped in on way home from the Allagash brewery in Portland. Only 5 minutes off the highway. A nice clean and organized store. A little pricey though.

A lot of great beers from Maine here, as well as some great choices from around the US. A good selection of Belgians, but nothing I have not see before in Maine. There was also a good selection of German stuff as well. I ended up just stocking up on some Maine Beer goodies while I was there. There is also a nice selection of glassware for sale too.

The service there was nice. Seemed like a friendly store.

In all this store was a nice find, and I definitely will stop in again if I am in the area.

Worth the detour driving to Portland, this ending up having the best selection of my stops in Maine, with service and organization. Not a megastore in NY, NJ, or Mass. nevertheless tries to get everything local and the better beers from afar as well. A little pricey, but almost anything I wanted was here, with the bonus of a few Shelton brothers' selections that were sold out elsewhere.Servuce was good and consistently being offered, there was wi-fi so I can check my apps before buying. The owner is not necessarily a beer geek, but gets in what the people want and is available to her.

Great place, finally stpped in today. I found that this store had an extensive selection of beers ranging from domestics, imports and microbrews. They also are able to get the infamous Sam Adams Utopias when they are released. Also offered were a varity of beer glasses of all types to choose from. I was impressed at the fact that it looks like a hole in the wall joint, but the clerks there were very knowledgable and the atomsphere was filled with beer enthusiast. They also have a great selection of cigars and wines if you also enjoy those. This is certainly going to become a regular destination for my beers!

In a nondescript mall on Route 1 between The Yorks and Kennebunkport sits this store. Doesn’t look like much from the outside (except for the specialty beer glassware), but hold on, go inside! There are cigars here, and a ton of wine (not the greatest selection, though). Plus beer!!

Look for the sizable Dogfish selections, including Namaste, Pangea, Sahtea, Olde School. Then move on to the shelf full of bombers and six packs. There is Brooklyn Monster ’10 and Chocolate Stout ’11-’12; North Coast Old Stock ’11 and Brother Thelonius; Jolly Pumpkin La Parcela, White Birch, Bar Harbor, Allagash, Maine and a ton of locals.

The “imports shelf” comes with Mikkeller, Pannepot and a variety of Belgians. They also have a large cooler with six-packs you can mix and match and buy by the single. I like that! A four-pack of Weyerbacher Insanity caught my attention in this department.

The guy in charge was very nice and offered help and suggestions, but I did not like the lack of prices on most of the beer. When I asked, they seemed to be all over, but my Weyerbacher Tiny and Double Simcoe were nicely priced at $7.50 each.

A great choice for this part of Coastal Maine. Heck, probably the only high-quality one...

I was in Maine on vacation and wanted to stop by since I had heard about this beer a good store to stop by while in the area. Tully’s does have the fortunes of being on a main road and is easy to find in a shopping plaza so I was able to find it easy. I was happy to find that the stories of this store’s great selection was not exaggerated. There was many locals and craft beer selections as well as some great imports to choose from. I spent a lot of time going up and down the aisles looking at what was available and having a tough time deciding what I wanted to get on this venture. I visited on a quiet and rainy Monday night so I pretty much had the place to myself and the help was friendly and accommodating. I will be here again.

Walk into the store and you have 2 racks that have beer glasses on them. They have a good assortment of Belgium beers and some German ones on the bottom. Usual macro and micro's to choose from. A large amount of beer that is refrigerated. They also a good selection of local beers from Maine and New Hampshire.

Decent selection of wine and cigars but no liquor.

Prices were reasonable for what we got.

I spend some time in the area this time of year and I always leave Tully's with a nice assortment of brew for my vacation. Great beer store.

Hands down, the best beer store i've ever been to. I went with the intention of finding some Maine Beer Co. Lunch IPA, and they had multiple cases with a batch date only a week old. Extensive selction of Stone Beers, and a good mix between local brews, imports, sixers, and bombers. The owner was EXTREMELY knowledgable of all of the beers I inquired about and asked probing questions to make great selections. She also impressed me with multiple examples of efforts to source additional product from difficult locations.
Very impressive selection of beer, wine, and even glassware. The prices were very competetive and well worth the drive to Wells. I will be making frequent trips from Dover, NH and I recommend you all do the same!

Thanks Tully!

Dawn has improved her selection and prices over the years, the newer location in the Hannaford mall gives her double the space. I take exception to Beancounter's claim that display cases are exposed to sunlight, the store front faces north and the display cases closest to the front door (the large selection of Belgians, Europeans) are on an east wall where NO sunlight hits. As near as I can tell her claim that she has the most in Northern New England is true, I have been to all the major stores listed in BA, and over 650 beer choices is excellent. Her prices are reasonable and fair and her staff seems to be able to remember what is new for me - they have passion which gives the store a good atmosphere. Huge selection of Belgians that are the same as or cheaper than other liquor stores.
Beer is my luxury and this is the place to enjoy getting the hard to find.
