I called Tully's once before I actually visited, and the woman working at the time was really helpful and polite. When I actually stepped foot inside the store, I was treated equally as well. The selection is an odd assortment of international beers and an amazingly impressive selection of Maine micro-breweries. You can tell that they take pride in their region. The one downside are the prices. I found them to be pricey to very pricey on almost everything that I know the average price of. For instance, Cadillac Mtn. Stout bombers were 10% more expensive at Tully's then at every other place I have ever seen it. Also of note, they have an impressive glassware collection.

I've shopped here for years but just noticed I've never rated it. Stopped in here last weekend on the way home from Portland. Its in a strip mall with Hannaford as its anchor. Small square store with wine on the right and beer on the left. Warm rack 16 ft long or so with some other stuff piled on the floor and maybe 10 doors in the cooler dedicated to beer. Many Maine locals with a few I dint know existed. selection is great service was friendly pricing a bit on the high side but this is a touristy area. I go back whenever I'm in the area for my Maine beer fix.

Located in Wells, just about 5 minutes away from RT 1, this nice little store that has a lot of options for singles that don't look like they've been sitting there too long. The store itself seems well kept and the service was pretty good as well. Nice selection of glassware in the front of the store. Hombrewing equipment and ingredients are in the middle of the store. If I lived closer, I'd probably be making this a go-to store of mine.

Really great store off historic highway Route 1.

Nicely laid out inside with a lot of beer. One of my favorite features also is that there is a lot of single broken up items here, and many are not that old either. I love variety in singles and this place is full of them.

There's a very good selection of local Maine items, but the highly coveted items go fast. Service is also very nice here, a woman helped me out who might be the owner and was very knowledgeable about the products for anything I asked. Selection is a little more basic, but strongly excels on local items which is key for me looking for something different outside where I live.

They even sell a little bit of homebrewing ingredients and equipment to boot!

Fantastic place and a great stop that's very worthy if you are in the area.

Went there this past August (staying @ a hotel within walking distance), had been there before, about 2 years ago. Located in a small strip mall, just off Route 1. Traffic on Route 1 is epic during the summer, so plan accordingly. It is small, but has a nice, well organized selection, with lots of local proper brews. I found the staffected to be friendly, and knowledgeable.

Very arrogant employee when I stopped in on July 5th.i asked about availability of substance, epiphany and other locally crafted beers. Beer dude recited release schedules and informed me that these brews sell out in an hour. I understand this but it did not inspire him to engage in any beer talk about alternative selections or any banter at all. He simply walked away and joined his coworker behind the register. I did see ruination 2.0 in the cooler. Not wanting to take a cold 6 pack out of cooler to only sit in my car for many hours, I inquired of mr. Happy if they had a warm 6 of ruination. He then explained that cooling down a cold beer and then cooling it after it has warmed does no harm and that this belief that it does is a falsehood spread by Budweiser and their marketing team. Good to know but it did not answer my question if they had a warm 6 available. I thought someone looking to drink the beer sooner than I would want the last 6 from the cooler. Anyway, left tully's empty handed. Too bad one deuce employee harmed the overall quality exhibited by the stores wide range of beers on the shelf.

This unassuming store in a strip mall is hiding a great stash of beer. Their selection was great with plenty of Maine brews along with an expansive selection of imports. The staff is very knowledgeable about their current stock and beer in general.

Fantastic people work here and will point you in any direction you could go. seriously the guys working in there have basically tried all the beers. Very nice selection hitting the Maine beer Company beers they have them! Want Marshall Wharf...Marshall Who yea very limited Distro hit them up. Want Bissell Brothers? you may find it here, call ahead though. Moat Mountain beers, SoMe Beers, Rising Tides, Bar Harbor Brewing, Cambridge Brewing, Narragansett brewing, some small growlers of Funky Bow brewing, then the big boys Stone, Founders, Victory, Sixpoint, Jolly Pumpkin, Thirsty Dog, UNITA, there are a ton more more that I'm forgetting.

This place is amazing.

Staff very friendly, great advice and knowledge, eager to help.

Amazing selection of Craft beer, I was mainly looking for Brew Dog and Dogfish Head, and they had pretty much everything including seasonal and limited releases as well.

They did have an amazing selection of import too, Belgium, Germany, Uk, etc.

Will absolutely go back!

In addition to an excellent selection, Tully's has a stellar atmosphere and very high quality service. The staff is always proactive in helping each and every customer, whether it's explaining various styles of beer or making recommendations based on personal tastes. Selection is very good and prices are fair and reasonable. They also update their Facebook page every time a new beer comes in making it extremely convenient for their customers. I'd highly recommend Tully's if you find yourself in the southern Maine area in need of some quality craft beer!
