Vermont

3.7/5  rDev -17.8%
quality: 4 | service: 3 | selection: 4 | $$$$

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.

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.

Road trip South: Dad came to visit, here we go.

A: had a definite "alcohol" feel to the place, as the beer section was extravagantly graced with warm and cold sections of beer and wine. An abundance of shirts and a more than adequate glassware section graced the front as I first entered the store.

Q/S: very good Maine selection (Allagash, MBC, Rising Tide), and New England selection (higher end stuff) as well as European section was shown throughout the store.

S: very good as I was asked several times if I'm finding everything ok, but even if I wasn't I never hold that against anyone because most of the time I usually know what I'm looking for.

F: I didn't buy any food.

V: reasonable for Southern Maine. I'm going back next time I get a chance. Great place!

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!
