An alcohol 'warehouse', but in the best sense of the word.

A good sized place that is function over fashion. Glossy concrete floors, high raftery ceilings and that effervescent 'redemption center' smell. Also, nice spread of New England regionals, micro-classics (seasonal and regular Anchors and Sierras) and interesting options (spelt brews and a few lines of organics). Great selection of bombers and 750mLs. Solid selection of macro-domestics. Also wines and liquors. Prices of the good stuff are competitive or low. The help is thin or busy or both. The owner, however, was fantastically helpful (he went into great depth into the history and non-availibility of Alexander Kieth's in Maine). The checkout staff is serious and have a very strict ID policy, especially with Flatlanders (out of state folks).

I shop here two to three times a week for everything form High Life and PBR to Allagash and Bar Harbor bombers (along with my girlfriend's wine and Irish Cream from Lewiston, yum). Enjoy, Cheers!
