I was visiting from the Midwest and RSVP was recommended a place to go to if I wanted to bring home some beers that I couldn't get back home.

I came here with three of my friends, two of which have lived in Maine for a couple years, the third was on vacation with me. The service saw me, but didn't greet me and allowed me to browse their selection without asking if I needed help. For some this may have seemed rude, but I actually prefer it that way.

I ended up getting to the checkout with about four bombers of various beer, and they refused to sell them to me because I was only 24 and had an out of state ID. Even though everyone of my friends that were there with me were 25 or older, and two of them were Maine residents with Maine ID's.

They then almost refused to sell anything to my friends because I was in the store with them! So I quickly left and waited in the car outside. I ended up texting my friends from the car so they could buy my beers I had to put back, but that was even hard to do because the employees wouldn't allow them to buy what I had picked out.

In the end they let that slide and I got my beer.

Overall a very annoying experience.

This was the place I would go to the most while in Portland. Large selection and great prices. The beer cellar DT is solid and more organized but this place had a larger selection and much better pricing. DFH 120 min for 8 bucks? Can't beat that. I do recall there being more Bombers than 12oz singles. Also this is not downtown so parking is always easy to find.

Good bigger store. Check the dates on your bottles; some stuff sticks around a while. Otherwise I'm a fan.
