While staying overnight in Lincoln, we needed gas before getting back to our road trip. I can thank my wife for this one, as I failed to check BA. She asked for a drink for the road as I walked in there's this crazy little butcher's shop. Walk further back to the drinks and just say..WOW. I ended up picking up a few bottles of goods that I don't see back in Ohio. Get back to the car & wife was like so I'm guessing they had good beer if it took you this long , we laughed and pulled away.
Never seen a store like this, what a surprise.

Small, off the side of the road typical convenience store. Smells of fried food and gasoline. All the attributes of a regular gas and go. Once you make it through the doors though, you see the massive collection of craft beer. Many more warm beers than cold, which is usually the case. Pretty sure that they have every beer that is available in NH. Great selection of wonderful beers the only down fall is the price. Oskar blues and firestone walker beers seem to be a good 30% more here than they are even one hour south.

Was glad to have this near our campground (Lost River). Came here before going on a fishing trip. Part deli counter (think diner), part convenience store and part gas station with a real nice selection. No breaking of packs but lots of singles to choose from. Parabola was there as well as Green Flash, some bombers of Old Man Stout from Woodstock (didn't know they bottled that) and lots others. Even though the guy there didn't seem entirely knowledgeable, he was real nice. Won't have to go to North Conway for my craft beer needs on our annual NH camping trip!

I stop in at Wayne's maybe once every 3 or 4 months, and have for years. Over the last few visits, Wayne's has really expanded its craft beer commitment and is now easily the biggest selection of beer in the area. A stop today revealed a remarkable expansion since my last visit last summer.

Prices are a little steep - typical of most everything in the Lincoln-Woodstock area. However, you'd have to drive to Concord or out-of-state to find a similar selection. One downside of the expansion is that it is hard to find anything. The coolers as well as the bomber selection on the shelves are not organized by brewery, style, or anything else that I can see. If you are looking for something specific, it can involve several runs back and forth to see if it is there. And don't trip on the loose cases stacked on the floor in the process. Perhaps some organization will emerge as the beer expansion matures?

If you can catch the owner/manager at the counter, he will give you some good recommendations/suggestions. Besides the beer selection, the draw here is the deli - one of the best meat counters in the area, and a great place to have deli sandwiches made. Otherwise, it is the typical gas station/convenience store.

You'd never expect it from seeing the outside, but this tiny, North Woodstock gas station sports what may be the best beer selection in New Hampshire.

You step into the market, and immediately see that it's more than a typical gas station. On the left, is a full butcher and deli. Much of the store's real estate is dedicated to the typical--conveniences, milk, and some produce, but if you continue on to the back, you will find well-stocked coolers of beer, plus packed shelves with an incredible variety.

The Belgian trappists and abby ales you'd expect are mostly present, and there is a fine selection of American beers, including Rogue, Dogfish Head, Allagash, Victory, and Founders. Brew Dog, Maudite, and Lost Abby are all well represented. Most impressive, though, is their selection of UK exports. You can find Wychwood Brewery's Hobgoblin, King Goblin, and Scarecrow at all times. It is also a block from Woodstock Station Brewery, and caries their brews.

This is a great place to go to try new brews. The available variety is difficult to overstate. While it's not unusual to find Rogue at a liquor store these days, finding six varieties of Rogue at a North Conway gas station is definitely worth mentioning.

The owner of the store, who is responsible for the beer selection, has tried most of the beer he stocks, and is able to give informed opinions and advice to customers. He has plans to expand the cold beer selection, more than quadrupling cooler space soon.

The 4.0 in atmosphere is for the shock of seeing such a great variety in such an unlikely place. If you are in the Woodstock area and need to pick up a six pack or a couple bombers, definitely stop by Wayne's.
