I couldn’t care less about the ambiance of my beer store nor the service (nobody helped me but nobody bothered me or treated me rudely) or food (mainly junk food). The selection of interesting (I wouldn’t go so far as to say "rare") beers was good and at a good price. Got a 4-pack of Brooklyn Chocolate Stout for $8.99, a six-pack of Naragansett Autocrat for $7.99, a 12-pack of Shriner Oktoberfest for $7.99 (case price for $13.99) and a 12-pack of Red Hook Pumpkin Porter for $10.99. A combination of higher end beers at pretty reasonable prices and more macro selections at good prices (with bargains to be had for out-of-season offerings). I’ll certainly be checking back regularly for hidden gems!

Like so many convenience stores on the NH-MA border this one tries to entice Mass customers with lower prices. There is a wall of coolers which mainly hold national macros and some regionals. There is an aisle of crafts and regionals but they are mainly those you can find anyplace such as Sam Adams, Woodstock, Shipyard, Harpoon, or Magic Hat. Some nationally known crafts in stock include North Coast and Victory. But you will not find many surprises here. The back of the store stocks 12-packs and cases of national macros for a pretty decent price. The best thing about this store is that they knock down the prices of seasonals as the season end, sometimes by more than half. In the the fall you might find a 6-pack of a Sam Adams Summer seasonal for $3.99.They have expanded in the last year and I think their beer aisle has improved.
