Not a real pretty place but houses a pretty damn good beer selection. It's a hair from the Great Lost Bear, meaning convenient as all hell. They've got all the macros I don't need to know about, but they've also got a terrific selection of micros, most specifically Maine (Atlantic Brewing, Geary's, Casco Bay/Carrabassett, Gritty's, Maine Coast, Sea Dog, Allagash, Shipyard, Belfast Bay) & New England brews. Some of the "haven't seen anywhere else up there" beers include Smuttynose and the growlers of Federal Jack's beers. Like I said, not the most asthetically pleasing joint but functionality is the name of the game here. Prices were also a lot better than I've seen in the immediate area.

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. .
