I was heading out to a concert in Maryland and I made a couple notes about places to drink a beer and I figured I might as well jot down the name of one store to buy beer at, and it was State Line.
As mentioned in earlier reviews, this is right off I-95 on the first exit in Maryland if you are heading southbound on the interstate.
Although, it is near a truck stop where you can pay a 5 bucks or so for a shower, State Line Liquors is worth your time. They carry a large selection of beers and if you are coming from out of state like myself, they will have plenty of beers that are not distributed in your home state. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the prices are good. I am very happy that I took the quick exit to stop here, great store.

This is what it's all about. This is easily the best beer shop that's within an hour's drive of me, if not the best on the east coast, if not the best outside of John's in Portland. There's plenty here to satisfy any discriminating beer enthusiast. I was in the area and just stopped in to check the place out, and before I knew it, I was $50 in the hole...and that was me showing some restraint. Not only is the beer selection great, they also have a nice rack filled with glassware. As a rampant collector, of course there was really nothing I haven't seen before, but to the beginner or even intermediate collector, the selection of glass was pretty impressive. There's also a growler filling station near the back.

The staff was friendly and helpful, and at least two people asked if I needed help while I was there, so I'm sure they are pretty knowledgeable as well. Prices are about right all around.

This place is definitely worth checking out if you find yourself within a reasonable distance. I live about 45 minutes away, and I dare say I'll be going back soon enough.

Didn't look like much from outside, but wowzers, don't judge. The beer selection is HUGE, and you can purchase singles of EVERYTHING. Service was fantastic and extremely helpful, both over the phone and in store. Only bummer is their online inventory was wrong (no Sam Adams doppelbock in stock). They even have what appeared to be a bar or growler set up in the back. I drove 2 hours round trip to go, and it may be worth the trip again, great selection at reasonable prices.

After catching wind of SLL about a year and a half ago, with one visit I was hooked. As you've often seen mentioned in the reviews, outward impressions are highly deceiving! Once inside, the options are dizzying. Add to the fact that there is now a growler fill station, and you have icing on the cake. Of course you have your wines and spirits too if need be, but you came here for the beers, and trust me, there are plenty! Definitely my-go to around my region, even if it's a longer drive. I can generally cross off most of my at the moment checklist upon visiting here (and usually a few I didn't know I wanted until I got there!). They're well organized, and reasonably priced. The staff is knowledgeable, approachable, and willing to go the extra mile for you. One thing I have noticed is that there are some beers that tend to linger on the shelves here, and while not generally a problem (you'll see 'discount' displays from time to time), it does pay to check bottle dates sometimes if you see something that interests you, especially for something International that may not age so gracefully... That's just a minor quibble though in what is ultimately an A+ experience!

State line Liquors is about a mile from I-95 in Maryland. exit 109B of I-95 Stop here to get beers I can not get in NJ. IT is worth the trip. Plus if I go early in the morning, I can stop at the Waffle House for breakfast. same Exit except it off 109A.

theirs selection is great. this was my second trip here. I don't know the place was bigger in the back with more selections. think I spent over 30 minutes just looking to fill a six pack of single beers. If you join their club card program you can get a discount. my recent trip I saved 5% on my six pack and 10% on my single's bottle purchase. They also had a glower filling station. they had 20 beers on tap. I wish I lived closer.

The service was great help find my six packs I was looking for. and check out was fast and friendly.
