Nice spacious layout, easy to get to off the highway. I was lucky enough to have been greeted by the owner who was very respectful of my hurried stop (wife & kids waiting in the car) and who essentially walked me through his entire inventory, guiding me as to which selections were essential an which should be left on the shelf for another visit, if time permitted. Definite 10/10 service! Then I get to th till and find out that I get a fat discount on my purchase!! This place is doing everything right. One suggestion: keep the IPAs chilled, but that’s a minor quibble given the satisfaction I received from this beer store.

Great beer shop with tons of titles and everything is available in single bottles. Lots of European imports and a decent selection of locals as well. Not the hugest place but a place of discerning selection.

The Bier Cellar has been a great addition to the southern Maine beer retail landscape. Greg is very knowlegeable and helpful and the selection is well chosen. RSVP or Tully’s might have slightly broader selections but Bier Cellar comes up with some obscure offerings I’ve never seen elsewhere in Maine. Bier Cellar also gets my nod for the best shopping environment/experience. Caveats: could use more cooler space, more parking spaces and prices are sometimes slightly lower at Whole Foods or RSVP (sometimes higher at those shops too to be fair). Overall, however, Bier Cellar gets my vote as the best beer store in Maine

thornecb  (61) Marblehead, Massachusetts | August 1, 2013
Small store in a strip mall near 295 down the street from the Great Lost Bear. Very interesting set-up with each beer displayed with detailed descriptions on top of shelving that holds multiple bottles of the display version. Small cooler on the left holds select offerings. Cider, mead and some wine is also available. Selection is limited, but very well chosen and described. Very friendly staff enthusiastically supports well-chosen purchases. Prices seem on-par with other Portland outlets. Not a place to score cases for a party, but many rarities make it well worth a visit.

The staff are incredibly helpful, and the selection is well organized, frequently updated and always contains excellent choices. The local section is kind of unbeatable, but it is also one of the only places in the region that you can get some of the international beer that Greg stocks.If it were possible, I’d like to double the service score. Staff and owner are always willing to spend the time to recommend things and they have NEVER done me wrong. I’m a beer drinker but they also have an impressive wine, cider and mead section. Nice all around.

Clean and well located beer store. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I gave the employee a beer from Québec and he went to the backstore to give me a nice Avery bottle. Good selection; not that much beer, but most of them are really good one, including FV13 abd St-Bon-Chien 2006. Price are ok. I would recommend this store.
