After hearing lots of good things about Bert's Better Beers I decided to make a trip up on my day off. I was very impressed with the amount of beer in such a small store, it rivals many much larger stores and has a better selection than most.

While I was browsing, Bert introduced himself and we chatted for a bit, which has never happened at any bigger store. The one thing I loved about this store (besides the beer) was that you can mix and match anything in the store, the mixed six is a rare feature that should be more available in stores.

It's not the biggest selection I've seen but considering the size of the store and the state in which it is located, Bert holds his own with any other store in the state. Not to mention the lack of presence of the majors (very nice!), if only I lived closer, this would be my go to shop, based solely on the service if nothing else. A great little place to buy good craft beer.

Ambiance is beer store - nailed it. Service is okay, thought the attitude is rather conceited from certain folks. Selection is good, but lacking some of my most sought after brews, mostly due to poor distribution network. Value is mediocre, as the price is higher than others. Great place to have around though.

This store is great, owner and staff are very helpful. A must go if you're in the area. They carry many hard to find and limited releases. Mix and match as well

Was told by many of people that I HAVE to go there. Staff was super friendly but with the reputation they have....I was not impressed with the amount of out dated beers they had. I spent over 70 dollars in craft beers and thought they would all be fresh based on the stores reputation. I had to throw out 5 beers because they were undrinkable. But I know....Shame on me for not checking the best buy date. I know I know.... :/

Excellent selection, knowledgeable staff, but my only complaint is the prices. He seems to jack up the prices a bit, especially on the more rare beers.

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.
