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. (1,084 characters)

Very arrogant employee when I stopped in on July 5th.i asked about availability of substance, epiphany and other locally crafted beers. Beer dude recited release schedules and informed me that these brews sell out in an hour. I understand this but it did not inspire him to engage in any beer talk about alternative selections or any banter at all. He simply walked away and joined his coworker behind the register. I did see ruination 2.0 in the cooler. Not wanting to take a cold 6 pack out of cooler to only sit in my car for many hours, I inquired of mr. Happy if they had a warm 6 of ruination. He then explained that cooling down a cold beer and then cooling it after it has warmed does no harm and that this belief that it does is a falsehood spread by Budweiser and their marketing team. Good to know but it did not answer my question if they had a warm 6 available. I thought someone looking to drink the beer sooner than I would want the last 6 from the cooler. Anyway, left tully's empty handed. Too bad one deuce employee harmed the overall quality exhibited by the stores wide range of beers on the shelf. (1,118 characters)

This unassuming store in a strip mall is hiding a great stash of beer. Their selection was great with plenty of Maine brews along with an expansive selection of imports. The staff is very knowledgeable about their current stock and beer in general. (250 characters)

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! (711 characters)

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! (362 characters)

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! (559 characters)

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. (652 characters)

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. (344 characters)

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. (757 characters)

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. (657 characters)

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. (591 characters)

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! (615 characters)

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... (1,237 characters)

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. (743 characters)
