Lots of beer but not much evidence of careful thought or informed decision making behind what they stock. Staff do not appear to be very knowledgeable. Good for quantity but average overall. There are much better beer stores in Mane but perhaps not in the immediate Topsham, Brunswick and Bath area.

The beer store the size of a Walgreen’s (drug store) is very clean and organized, and the staff will help track down beers and try to answer questions. The diversity of beer selection definitely made me interested in trying different kinds of beers. You can find anything on the North American continent and most of the world in there on beer. All of the local stuff is sold there. Prices are pretty much the same as anywhere else. I have never bought any food there, but go there pretty much all of the time when I’m in Topsham.

Stopped here to try and score a few more Maine Beer Cos for the road and was sad to find Lunch completely cleaned out. They had plenty of Peeper, Mo, and Mean Old Tom. The selection here is good. It sticks a little more mainstream and a little less unique, but there’s plenty to keep most of us happy here.

Not a bad beer slection especially if you are looking for Maine and New England beers. Seem to have had more selection before they added liquor.

This place is alright. It’s got a decent beer selection, but nothing crazy. The prices seem a little high on some items. I usually only stop here if I need something in a pinch. The staff doesn’t know much about the selection, and the last time I was in they seemed to be very low on stock.

Bootleggers hasn’t an alright selection, but nothing crazy or that difficult to find. Still, it’s nice to have a local store where I can find a decent brew.

New store with a pretty decent selection of interesting stuff - but not quite interesting enough. Stuff I’d expect to see in a good Maine beer store (for example Smuttynose big beers, Nøgne Ø, Schlenkerla, Ølfabrikken, Rochefort, Struise, latest Allagash) wasn’t there on my first visit. Not even all the usual Maine breweries are represented. But this is a new store so it may take some more time. They did have a pretty nice Southampton, Rogue and Brooklyn selection. They seem to have a fair bit of older stock. For example they had the Harpoon Peche from several months ago but not any more recent of the 100 bbl series. Fair selection of Belgian and British stuff and several Belgian Christmas gift packs. Prices seem pretty good. The environment here is clean and controlled. They may let you buy singles but it doesn’t seem they encourage it. So far they’re a ways from the top three (Downeast, Florian’s, Tully’s) beer stores I’ve been to in ME. (UPDATE 9/15/09) I’m not quite ready to numerically upgrade them but this place is getting better. Selection has really beefed up although the range of stuff could be a little better. They also still seem a little off on having the newest releases - they seem a step or two behind on series releases. But still this store is getting much better for the local beer seeker. (UPDATE 7/27/11): Upgraded them a notch on the selection - better quality and more of it.
