This store is an absolute gem. The clerk welcomed me and my friends warmly and offered full assistance with anything we needed. He knew exactly when to lend help and otherwise let us browse. If the three of us gathered in one section with puzzled faces searching for a particular beer, he would chime in and guide us toward the beer we sought. He gladly accepted our opinions about some of his new beers that he'd yet to try, while responding with some great reviews of his own about beers we questioned. This man's clean appearance, knowledge, friendliness, and enthusiasm weighed heavily on my fond thoughts about this store.

The store isn't huge, but for a store entirely dedicated to beer, it seemed the perfect size. Unfortunately, if my friend didn't know the location of the store I probably would have overlooked it on my own. The layout has a nice flow that allows one to naturally wander through each isle without interfering with other patrons' shopping experience. Everything was organized in a very logical sense. You can go to each section of beer and find a beer you love and right beside it will be all of its competitors. This makes it very easy to decide on new beers to try.

The atmosphere was professional, clean, and cheerful. I remember the music being exactly to my taste and I sang along to each song while basking in the glory of all sorts of beer. This really is a kid-in-a-candy-shop type of feeling - my friends and I were having a great time. We made a big detour in our travels that day to visit this store, so we didn't stay nearly as long as we would have liked. Still, we spent a solid half hour to 45 minutes and left feeling like we had unfinished business.

The selection included much more than I expected, having never heard of the place before my friend brought me there. I had a hard time weeding out exactly what I wanted because I could have easily dropped hundreds of dollars and been very pleased with the beer that would have gotten me. I ended up with great selection of beers that I haven't even seen before. The gentleman working was kind enough to bag all of the beer my friends and I purchased into re-usable beer/wine bags that I've used ever since.

Overall I'd have to say this is one of the best beer stores from which I've had the pleasure of purchasing. I can't stress enough how much I appreciated the perfect attention (or lack thereof, when appropriate) that the gentleman working gave us. I really wish this store was closer to where I lived so that I could visit every week. I would truly recommend this store for anyone who desires to buy some great brews while taking pleasure in the whole experience of simply being in the store.

Best of luck to this store and I hope to visit again soon!

A real nice place that is very neatly organized and presented.

The selection is fairly good, with a good mix of local New Hampshire stuff. You will find the occasional Maine and Vermont stuff in here, but not the highly regarded and demanded stuff such as Alchemist for one thing.

Staff are really nice and knowledgeable. They will easily chat you up for any needs, or desires you may have. They know the product well and can answer pretty much anything, there will be no glassy eyed stares or I don't know kind of responses here. They are extremely helpful.

You wont find everything in the world here, but it's a decent basic selection, and well organized. Also I like the fact they have a shelf dedicated to "what's new" which is something I always love when shopping.

I will be stopping by again if in the area for sure.

Made my way over to Bert's for the very first time and from the moment I opened the door I was impressed. I was greeted quickly and got a friendly hand shake, after stating it was my first visit, from the gentleman who ended up being Bert himself. There was cheese and crackers available and since it was 4:30pm on a Tuesday I was just in time for some beer tasting samples. The selection was out of this world and the take-what-you-want availability of any beer on the shelves made it easy getting whatever I wanted to make my own six-pack. The prices were fair and reasonable and on-par with other beer places I've visited. This may have been my first visit but it will not be my last! Bert's Better Beers is truly an amazing place in central New Hampshire!
