Stopped in here last week for the first time in about 15 years looking for a little something to quench my thirst after a sooty job up the street. Wow this place has changed. Its your basic olde time New England convenience store with a small deli counter and the usual convenience items. But they have really stepped up the selection of beer here! Most of the the back wall is filled with shelves of warm six backs with maybe twelve feet of shelving facing that with bombers and bigger bottles. They have a selection of macros, but also just about everything available from a distributor in NH. Fair enough pricing, the kind of friendly but not so beer savvy service you would expect from a convenience store. I'm impressed with the way they have steeped up the selection here, will stop by again if in the area.

I live close to East Derry General Store and have been going there for years for a variety of reasons. When Sam (store owner) bought this place about 9 years ago it had a standard selection of beers and I was typically forced to leave with Sam Adams or Harpoon. Over time the selection has improved and it now features an outstanding selection of craft brews. Sam gets to know his customers tastes and often pulls me aside to tell me about beers that he has in stock that he knows I will like.

Bottom line: East Derry general Store has as good a selection of craft brews as any other establishment in Southern NH. The only knock can think of is that it doesn't have as cool a vibe as some other stores but the prices are WAY LOWER. This is a trade off I can live with.

A very large selection for such a small store - the sign out front "Massive selection of craft beer" is not a joke. Notable breweries: Lagunitas, Stone, Founders, Dogfish Head, Flying Dog, Unitas, Green Flash, Southern Tier, Oskar Blues, and others. Prices are very reasonable. There are beers here that you simply can't find anywhere else in the area.

If you're anywhere close, this is a worthwhile beer destination.

This small General Store has a nice selection of craft beer at prices that are 10-20% lower than then the other local craft beer stores in the area. I briefly talked to the owner Sam and he said that because he sells other products than just beer, he can keep his mark up on beer to a reasonable price.

Some of my favorite breweries that are at the store: Dogfish, Firestone, Founders, Lagunitas, Oskar Blues, Sixpoint Brewery, Uinta Brewing and many more. If you live in the local area this should be a craft beer stop for you.

The store doesn't allow the brake up of 4 and 6 packs and singles are just the large bottles.
