I noticed while shopping here that some of their beers are a bit pricy. Its not too much of a concern for me since I'm usually visiting NH and I don't have a car so I wouldn't want to make my host drive me around to different beer places to save some money per beer, just an observation.
The first time I went there the store was relatively small, but they packed a lot in. The next year when I returned it had expanded into the space next door. Although the store was larger, it didn't seem like they offered too much more then they had before, just more space between the selves.
Their selection is vast and they carry many local beers and some glassware. The service depended on who was working. The first two times I went the person working was very nice and helpful, the second time he for some reason seemed suspicious of me. I'm not sure why I felt that way I just did, maybe because I had to look at all of the beers. It is slightly annoying that they arrange their beers by style instead of by brewery, so if I wanted to try say all of the smuttynose offering I would have to search throughout the entire store. Its a good beer store and easily the best in the area. If you live in Manchester I definitely recommend going, if you don't and you're just passing through the only reason to buy beer is because there is no tax but every surrounding state, with exception of Maine has a better selection then NH.

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!
