I was a bit hesitant to venture up to RSVP with some of the negative reviews, but in Maine, it is one a the few choices for quality hard to find beers.

While the ambience would never be mistaken for a Four Seasons hotel... HEY!? ... Whadd'ya want?!? It's a liquor store for Pete's sake!

Some reviewers have commented negatively on the service. I was pleased to find the complete opposite! I was approached by not one, but two employees who were incredibly helpful assisting me in picking out Pilsners for my weekend beer-tasting. They were very friendly and very informative ( and I know a s*itload about beer!)

The selection was as good as it gets for Maine and the prices were very reasonable.

Don't give them grief about their ID policy either. I'm sure it's not them, it's the mega-anal state of Maine's policies!

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.
