I've stopped in here a few times because it is convenient off 295 in Portland. My most recent trip was last week on the way up to Augusta for work. Great selection of Maine brewed beers. Banded horn, Marshall's wharf, Funky Bow, Maine Beer, Baxter, etc Nice selection imports as well as domestics with easily 500 labels in house. Some wine and mead as well as a section for cider. It was a late Sunday afternoon and the guy behind the counter was helpful and seemed knowledgeable. I managed to find a dozen or so new beers to try without much trouble. Pricing seemed a bit higher than I'm used to, but could be a Portland thing. I wouldn't hesitate stopping in next time I'm in the area. (687 characters)

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. (698 characters)
