Bier Cellar has quickly won over the hearts of beer geeks in the southern Maine area and out of staters seeking beers to bring home. The store is very clean and well lit with good music playing at all times. The wooden shelving and oak barrels immediately tell you you're not in an average liquor store. Quality is top notch, with no BMC taking up valuable space. Greg, the owner is always there to answer questions and make recommendations. There's some snack food, but let's face it, you're not going to a bottle shop for food. Overall Bier Cellar has been a great addition to the fast growing Maine beer scene.

I don't do a whole lot of reviewing on BA but I did want to take a minute to write one for the Bier Cellar. I actually live in CT but my parents live in the Portland area and I am up to visit frequently. I am on the e-mail list and I will buy things through the website and pick up when I am up there. Last time there was a little mix-up with a 4-pk (two were missing). I was refunded my $ and given a bottle of HF Florence that was under the register as an apology. Mix-ups happen so the gesture wasn't necessary but it was GREATLY appreciated. They are always super helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, and tapped into the local beer scene. Can't recommend it enough if you are in the Portland area.

Very nice selection of Maine beers, I like they have most of their hoppy stuff in coolers or on the shelf letting you decide if you want them cold or warm.

Friendly knowledgable staff, and one of the few beer stores that gets the Bissell Brothers Substance Ale regularly. Nice representation of Belgium Beers too, overall quality store
