rsvp is just past the pie hole. otherwise one might miss it. i did not.

whilst attempting to secure some of that triticus the kids are talking so much about (thanks to camen and joe and jennie for the effort!). billybrew sez rsvp has it coming out thier butts. being somewhat nearby, i decided to stop on by.

billy further sez that rsvp opens at 9am sunday. i was skeptical especially when we pull up and it looks dark inside. shorenuf. they was open.

you step into a dank, dark room. good news, that (what with uv light from flourescent lights being bad for beer).

there is quite a selection. manymany maine beers. many beers i've not seen anywhere else in maine (there isn't much for beer stores where i live some 3 hours north of portland): some rogues and dfh and a wider line of some others: long trail, youngs....

prices were pretty decent: triticus was $3.99 and allagash 10th was $12 something. there were only 3 bottles of the 10th i could find and someone dropped what they were doing to go look for me. can't ask for much more than that i suppose...

not as pretty a store as downeast beverage but better prices and about the same selection.

Good bigger store. Check the dates on your bottles; some stuff sticks around a while. Otherwise I'm a fan.

I stopped in here last week while working out of town. I’m a little surprised about the low ratings from previous reviewers, but then again I had no issues with my out of state ID because I’m a bit older. On forest st a bit out of the center of Portland a bit past the Bear with ample parking. Feels like an open warehouse with a row of cold beer coolers filling the back wall of the store. Macro’s well yea they have them, but a huge focus on craft beer with a focus on Maine as usual. Off to the far right hand side of the store is a long warm isle with an incredible selection of craft beer. Respectable imported selection but more domestic with a focus on ME brews. Employee sent to straighten out the shelves said hi to me but never asked if she could assist me. Nice selection. decent prices, if I were in town again I wouldn’t hesitate to stop in again. .

Heard this was to place to go if in portland area. so I ventured in. found a decent amount of craft beer offerings. the store is a typical bottle store with dim lighting and cardboard displays. my buddy had a hard time with buying beer because he had a NH ID he is (24) strange issue, but other then that was a OK experience. cant say id make the trek to go again.
