Pretty excellent beer selection for a Gas Station, This is another store i stop in from time to time to see what i can find that others in the area arenít carrying.
If your ever stopping in look for the "Grab Bag" Iíve scored some Pretty decent beers on this $2 gamble.

For starters, it is actually a deli built off a Citigo gas station. It is cramped, everything is retail white and people lining up for sandwiches got in the way of my beer picking. However, it is definitely worth a stop. The location is convenient, near the mall and right of the I95 so no time will be wasted looking for it. The beer was only two coolers and two double sided shelving units, but what they have crammed into that space is amazing. Lots of US and regional craft beers, hardly anything macro even in the coolers. I left with some Flying Dog, a Lion stout, two lambics, and a Chimay Triple. Given a little more space and time I donít know what I could have pulled out. Stock there seems to move fast and they seem to bring in a fair number of seasonals, so I think there might be something new to find over multiple trips. I do see the other posters concerns over storage. The beers are just out on a shelf like they were motor oil or Slim Jims, but the temperature was ok in there and I get the feeling stock might not sit around long enough for that to be an issue.

You need to consider that it is a gas station, not a beer store. The selection is better than you will find at most stores you will find in Maine. Storage is a major issue, too warm, too much light....but considering the location it is what it is. De Ranke and few other sours make it worth the stop.

Holy cow, itís just a gas station for crying out loud! I checked it out because the signboard out front said í225 beers and countingí. I might argue with that number but there is some great beer here (Saison Dupont, for example, at a gas station). The storage is perhaps questionable, okay for Dupont but the temp. was probably 85 when I visited and 90% of the bottles are sitting out on shelving open to all light and temp. fluctuations.

This place surprised me (yes itís a gas station) had a great selection of brews (Bombers and six-packs) and just of the off ramp on the way to Canada. For the middle of nowhere you canít go wrong
