Barb's is a great little place tucked away in Concord NH. The selection is superb and I usually can always find something new when I stop on by. I think the prices are reasonable but if it is seasonal or a hot commodity then the prices rise. The staff is friendly, the place is clean and it never seems to be too crowded. I would recommend Barb's to anyone looking to find something different for their beer selection!

Stopped by this gem while up in Concord recently, actually stumbling into it turning around in the parking lot, so I figured why not I'll stop. Clean little store tucked away on Route 106. Not crowded at all, I was the only person in the store at 5pm. Probably well over 500 beers to choose from. They had domestics microbrews from all over the country and a large selection of good imports from all over the world. I asked the clerk to suggest a local microbrew and she walked me thru each case and each beer explaining what was good and what was new and what she thought of that beer. Great service. Prices were not bad, some of the newer beers were a little bit more than I would expect them to be, but not terrible on price. If I happen to be up there in that area again I will most likely stop by.

We tried to order kegs of beer for a wedding at Barb's beer. They gave us the wrong tap for the keg, which meant that we were unable to use the keg for half of the wedding. When we returned to the store, in the middle of the wedding weekend, to try and get the problem remedied, the owner was abusive (literally shouting over the phone at us) and, rather than apologizing, blamed the problem on the distributor and nearly refused to give us the correct tap so that our guests could enjoy the rest of the wedding.

But, of course, the *entire* reason that you get a keg from a store like this is so that it takes the responsibility of being the middleman between you and the distributor. That's what they get paid for!

A mistake is a mistake, even if it spoils part of a wedding. But refusing to own up and abusing your customers is not to be tolerated. There are lots of other good places to get beer in New Hampshire. I'm never going here again.
