VERY convenient stop of off rt 95, first/last exit in maryland. Going north its to the left of the highway about 1/4 mile on the right. After you get past all the macro banners and displays, you quickly come accross a very nice supply and selection of high quality brews. Avery galore, tons of domestic micros, excellent selection of Belgians/Germans/Brit imports. Lots of chilled/lots of room temp. Picked up my first ever Three Floyds Dreadnaught. Also good prices on Magic hat's Thumbsucker etc etc, well worth a stop.

From the outside, you might think you have reached the wrong place - but do not be fooled, this is THE beer Mecca on the entire Southeast coastline. Their selection and employee knowledge stands alone among beer stores. The staff is VERY knowledgeable and friendly. They also have added an outstanding growler selection in the back where they also host multiple events.

If you are within a 100 mile radius of Elkton, MD, do yourself a favor and stop in.

I suppose it is all relative to your location. Maryland is just not a big craft beer state with respect to distribution, sadly. But this is definitely the best place in the state for bottles. Wish the location was a little more convenient. Fair pricing. Nice staff.

Granted, I've only been actively seeking out quality craft beer stores for the past 6 months or so but this is hands down the best place I've been. Vibe is warehouse-esque, nothing special but it's very clean and well-lit. and of course having the various taps in the back helps. Both the quality of the beer offered and variety of selection is excellent and beyond anything I've seen on the East Coast so far (without a doubt in MD). The staff was very helpful and friendly, explaining to me how their build-your-own 6-pack policy works, etc. You can build a 6-pack from any beer in the store, it's awesome.

I am about 1 1/2 hours from State Line Liquors and it's absolutely worth the weekend trip.

The place is easy accessible from I-95 and there is always a great selection of beers! I would highly recommend it if one is making a long trip and needs to stock up on beer.

Stopped in on the way home from the beach (it's about 5 minutes out of your way if you're on I-95). Thought I'd just check it out. Right.

The guy at the cash register said they were voted the #3 bottle shop in the US. I believe it. It's like a theme park with world-class beer. More than 3000 different beers. 25 beers on tap. I was totally stunned.

I wandered about and filled a 6-pack (rather randomly):
Clown Shoes Galactica
Mikkelsen Better Half (they have a HUGE selection of European beers)
DuClaw Mosaic Hop Continuum #2
Weyerbacher Heresy
Weyerbacher Old Heathen
Sierra Nevada Bigfoot

...and grabbed a 4-pack of Oscar Blues G'Knight for good measure.

Everything is available as a single if you want variety. Staff is friendly, polite and knowledgeable. Selection is, in my experience, unparalleled.

Note to self: do some homework ahead of time, or you'll never make it to the beach!

State Line Liquors. Wow. What can't be said about this beer heaven. I had heard for a long time that this was THE place to go for the best selection of beer and it sure doesn't disappoint. What an awesome place. Don't let the exterior fool you...

Best selection I have seen in the area and does not feel like a college dump being that close to U of Delaware. Like the option of mixing packs. Staff is very helpful, willing to grab something cold from in back for me. Growler station was great, nice selection and prices. My filler knew each brew inside and out.

Visited this store on my way to the Philadelphia airport. It is very convenient, right off I-95. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but there selection is really world class. Very friendly staff as well. Mildly knock is that some of the bottles were dated a bit, so I would definitely recommend checking dates prior to purchasing any hoppy beers.

Passed by this place so many times but never gave it a second look. i have been missing out big time. Found so many beers I have read about and seen on the internet but were not available in Virginia. I will be stopping in again probably this week to pick up some more beers. Also they have a beer club that is free to sign up for.

The only reason it doesn't get 5's across the board is the appearance of the building and some old beer, especially in the imports. Check the dates.

The selection is world class. If it is available in Maryland it looks like they have it. The employees are very nice and helpful. They even loaded my trunk up for me which was a nice bonus. The growler station is also large and diverse.

I live in Dover, DE and I will be be visiting monthly. I am willing to drive round trip 100 miles, pay tolls and sales tax to shop here.
