I've been to Gary's a couple of times, most recently yesterday. Just outside of the main downtown area sits a non assuming beverage outlet. The kind of place you find near the beach or on the Mass border catering to the 30 pack crowd. They do have huge stacks of macros, which I assume is the crux of their business, but nestled in the catacombs is a pretty decent selection of craft beer. A couple of shelves of bombers, many cooler doors, pallets of Dogfish 750's on clearance for 5 bucks, Theobroma, yes please. A back room filled with stacks of cases with case pricing, oh hell yeah. A lot of what is available in NH can be found here. Probably the best pricing I've seen in NH for craft beer. Double trouble 4 pack 9.99 Smutty big beer 5.49 Harpoon 30 barrel 4.99 Discounts for cases out back. Chips, snacks, and soda available as well. I wandered around for a half hour or so and was never approached by anyone who worked there. I didn't need any help, but I don't think this is the kind of place that walks you through your purchase. 45 minutes from my house, but I try to stop in here whenever I'm in the area.

First time going there, the cashier was pretty rude, kind of looking at me like, "WTF do you want". She had a mean look on her face. So, I ordered a keg of beer on Monday, and was told that it would be in on Thursday. So, I get a call on Thursday from them and they told me that the beer I had selected is not being distributed anymore by them. So, I'm like, why didn't you tell me this BEFORE Thursday? Not only that, I go to the store, and there is a huge line. I finally get up to the counter and they barely had ANY 1/4 kegs or half kegs. The "selection" they had was all nasty LIGHT beer. Needless to say, I will never go there again. Terrible service, unprofessional, and pretty sleazy, run down place with TERRIBLE customer service.

gary's has a decent selection of microbrews both in six packs and bombers. dont expect to get any help or enjoy the atmosphere at all. they pretty much supply the product for sale and not much more. they give an honest price imo and have good beer. i go here when i want a decent beer but don't feel like going far for it. they also sell kegs and have a massive beverage selection of not just beer.
overall, its a good place to go and get beer if you know the beers and don't feel like getting into a conversation with anyone. get it, get beer, get out.

Gary's as many have stated is a decent bare bones place, with likely the widest selection in the city of Portsmouth.
This is not an upscale micro experience but is a simple beer in cooler, some on shelf, cramped, busy, inexpensive place with brisk and minimial service.
They have all the locals (Smuttynose, Gearys...) and generally all the big West Coast names such as Stone, Rogue, and these days also Green Flash. In general, they have most of what is avaialble in NH.
They also have kegs, a decent selection, including 1/6 kegs, sometimes with good options.
Check it out, if in Portsmouth.
