I was in search of Kegs of beer for a party last year and was told this place had the best prices. I called around, and confirmed it to be true. The place, yes, is not the nicest, but the prices were great and although the people may not speak the best english, they were very nice to me. For this years party, I have gone back for the same. If you are not too concerned about appearance, I would not hesitate to get your beer here!

Not sure if they were remodeling in here or something, but this place is a bit of a dump. The beer is to the left when you walk in, and there is a very decent selection of 4 and 6 packs from all over the country, as well as some imports. Bomber selection is a bit thin, but decent. The place was a wreck, overall, and once I got over the fly buzzing my face every five minutes I could relax and look around. The guy working the register grunted a couple times when I was checking out, so I would say there is not much emphasis on service. Not sure what else is in the area, but I am in no rush to get back to this place.

This might be the largest beer store in all of NH in terms of quantity. They don't carry every beer available to NH but they carry most and generally have a ton, lots of 12 packs and cases. They have coolers along 2? sides of the store that hold singles, 4/6 packs, and macro. As has been stated before, freshness can be a bit of a problem and the store isn't always that clean or organized.

Service seems to be fairly standard, I don't usually get much in terms of greeting, assistance, or chatting.

Pricing is pretty standard although you can occasionally run into a great deal. I recently picked up a case of Treble Hook Barleywine for just $9.99!

It's not my go to store, but if I'm in the area I'll usually stop in a take a look.

This place was quite a surprise at first. From the outside, it looks like your typical convenience store that would probably have the usual craft beer selection (Shipyard has been advertised as the beer of the month for the last few months). Once inside, the beer selection is quite surprising. The entire left side of the store is full of wine, big bottles & a wall of 6/4-packs. They have a few fridges dedicated to big bottles and the entire back wall is also stocked with your usual domestics and a good selection of craft 6-packs as well.

Overall, for a beer store in NH this place has a great selection and the prices are very reasonable. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area & looking to make a purchase.

It's not much to look at from the outside. When I walk into it everything seems a bit congested. But I don't go into a beer store to admire the surroundings. I go in to buy beer.

Their selection is quite good, probably one of the best selections in the state. It is the only store in New Hampshire where I regularly find Beamish Stout. You can buy singles and mix and match. They price by the beer. You don't get a standard mix and match 6-pack price.

Some are refrigerated and some are not. If you maneuver your way around to the south side of the building to the door that leads into the storage cellar you will find a lot of orphan beers, often dust covered, sitting unorganized on a shelf. These are probably the leftovers from broken up six-packs.

But I don't think they throw anything out no matter how old it is. It is not uncommon to find a beer that is beyond its "best by" date and I have picked up the occasional seasonal beers from the previous season. Not that this is necessarily bad because many beers get better with age.

The service is so-so. They cash you out, bag your product and send you on your way. I have never experienced a friendly, chatty cashier.
