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.
