Finally got to visiting this place while in the Manachester area on business. It's a simple store front in a low-key, industrial-style strip mall. The shop is very inviting, and Bert came right over to greet me when I walked in.

Selection is very good, and luckily more and more labels are coming into NH each month, so it's getting better, though not nearly as good as Maine, Vermont, and Massachusetts.

Bottles are arranged nicely, though the organization is a bit hard to figure out, so take a walk around to ensure you've seen everything. Prices are listed on most beers but not all. Singles in the coolers are a nice addition. In fact, that's what I like about this shop the most: everything here can be purchased as a single. I do wish, however, that the prices were in line with more NH bottle shops; the high prices kept my overall rating down.

Overall a great shop with excellent customer service and a fine selection of beer - and only beer :)

Ambiance is beer store - nailed it. Service is okay, thought the attitude is rather conceited from certain folks. Selection is good, but lacking some of my most sought after brews, mostly due to poor distribution network. Value is mediocre, as the price is higher than others. Great place to have around though.

This store is great, owner and staff are very helpful. A must go if you're in the area. They carry many hard to find and limited releases. Mix and match as well

Was told by many of people that I HAVE to go there. Staff was super friendly but with the reputation they have....I was not impressed with the amount of out dated beers they had. I spent over 70 dollars in craft beers and thought they would all be fresh based on the stores reputation. I had to throw out 5 beers because they were undrinkable. But I know....Shame on me for not checking the best buy date. I know I know.... :/

Excellent selection, knowledgeable staff, but my only complaint is the prices. He seems to jack up the prices a bit, especially on the more rare beers.

A real nice place that is very neatly organized and presented.

The selection is fairly good, with a good mix of local New Hampshire stuff. You will find the occasional Maine and Vermont stuff in here, but not the highly regarded and demanded stuff such as Alchemist for one thing.

Staff are really nice and knowledgeable. They will easily chat you up for any needs, or desires you may have. They know the product well and can answer pretty much anything, there will be no glassy eyed stares or I don't know kind of responses here. They are extremely helpful.

You wont find everything in the world here, but it's a decent basic selection, and well organized. Also I like the fact they have a shelf dedicated to "what's new" which is something I always love when shopping.

I will be stopping by again if in the area for sure.
