Stopped in here twice in the last two weeks and both times I left impressed.

From the outside it looks like any other liquor store along the road to the beach but once you go through the doors you instantly realize this is not your typical liquor store. The atmosphere is pretty good. Lots of displays all over the place with all the prices clearly marked on the shelves. Plenty of people shopping all over the large L shaped store. The service was good. On both occasions I had no less than five different employee's ask if I needed help.

The quality was as you would expect, top notch. They have so many different beers that you would be hard pressed to find one you didn't want to try. I did notice a few beers that I wouldn't have on my shelves still but if they want to sell year plus old european IPA's then by all means. The prices where very good, but I am from PA where they are way to high to begin with. I got five top notch bottles and I think I paid about $50 bucks.

The selection was simply put, amazing. Beers from all over the world with an emphasis on US and European beers. I got the last bottle of Cantillon they had, a 375ml Rosé De Gambrinus and I also picked up a Drie Fonteinen - Oude Geuze, Stillwater - BA Stateside Saison, De Molen - Hel & Verdoemenis, and a De Dolle - Extra Export Stout. I would have loved to pick up a few more of the De Dolle's but I was already spending more than I planned, maybe next time.

Overall one of the best beers stores I have ever been to. I will stop every time I am in the area now. Can't wait for my next trip to the beach!

Finally made it down here and I was very impressed. Reasonable prices and a huge variety. The staff was super helpful searching for three items for me. They also helped cart my haul off to my car. One of the better service experiences I have had at a store in a while. Definitely making plans to come back.

Boy do I wish I lived closer to this place. Unbelievable selection. Reasonable prices although they have gone up recently. Helpful staff members always available. Perhaps the best bottle shop in the state of MD.

State Line, what a mythical creature! Finally I am in you… but who would know as you pull into the parking lot and peer at the ramshackle building full of cheap signs and garish neons. It doesn’t matter- once you’re inside and find the beer, you will be in massive awe.

12 different Bruery brands, the entire Southern Tier lineup, Old Stock 2011 Brandy, Amager and To Ol from Scandinavia, Emelisse and more Evil Twin than I even thought possible. And I’m only talking about the rarer stuff!

Prices are reasonable, service is super nice. They have a growler bar. It’s as good as you thought, and then some.

Has a lot of expired beer like someone said. I rated it high for the excellent tasting events they have.

Watch out for old beer!!!
Great place, huge selection and decent prices, I'll definitely be back. But I was stunned by the number of expired beers I saw. Saw multiple variety 12 packs that were 9-12 months old. I wouldn't trust anything that doesn't have a date on the bottle. Unless you're looking for an aged barleywine, etc.

Just returned from a road trip State Line and I have to admit, it really is a damn fine outlet! The staff were very helpful, they had everything I was looking for except 22oz Torpedo, which they had run out of and one of the guys actually apologized for having done so. Their web site is accurate, they have a ton of beers and a bunch of taps in the back. In all, it was well worth the 90 minute drive! Dropped $135 and came away feeling like a total winner.
