I've read a lot about State Line on BA and since I was driving from Washington home to Philadelphia on a Friday night, I thought I'd stop by.
Located just off Exit 109 on I-95, State Line doesn't look like much from the road. In fact, it looks like your average run-of-the-mill rural liquor store. The signs outside are for BMC products and provide no hint to the great selection within.
The place is smaller than I thought it would be, but the beer selection was unparalleled. There were American craft selections from local-ish breweries such as Dogfish Head and Clipper City as well as nationwide craft giants such as Stone, Great Divide, Goose Island, Bear Republic, etc.
As great as the US selection was, the international selection was even better. I saw beers at State Line from the UK that I hadn't seen since I lived in England a decade ago. The Belgian selection was fantastic as well.
The staff was very friendly as well. I was asked several times if I needed help and the cashier signed me up for their club saving me 5% on six packs and 10% on bombers. A great deal.
I travel I-95 between Philly and DC very frequently and now I know I'll be stopping in Elkton every time.

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.
