I really like McKinnons and the store concept. I like the selection, but all of their locations lack a true beer manager. If you have a beer or wine related question, you are on your own.

I stopped in here today after urging from my bother who lives in the area. First impressions are that this is one small parking lot and Iím trying to find a spot on a Saturday afternoon. I finally park and get in to check out the huge selection of meat available for sale. Iíll be back in the summer to buy some pork butt to smoke, but enough about that.
Basically this is a butcher shop/supermarket in a strip mall on rte 28 in Salem NH.
The beer and wine section are on the far left hand side of the store. Most of the beer is in a very large L shaped cooler. There are four or so warm racks set up at locations around the store as well.
I would have to say with few exceptions this store carries just about everything available in NH. Victory, Southampton, Brooklyn, Sea Dog, Smuttynose, Allagash, Chimay, Harpoon, Magic Hat, just to name a few. They have lots of Imports that I rarely see anywhere else.
Great selection for NH Great prices too!

I was very satisfied with this place, the beer manager was really helpful, they were having a special and went over everything they had over the phone. They have good specials so the price is right, selection was pretty nice as well. Overall a good place to buy craft beer.

I was very impressed with the selection here. They clearly attempt to have a good selection of local-ish brews like Manchester Brewing, Smuttynose, and some of the harder to find Pennechuck stuff. American craft beer and imports are well-represented too with Victory, Brooklyn, Blue Point, Magic Hat, Shipyard, Chimay, Bornem, Samuel Smith, etc. Prices are reasonable at worst and some offerings are a bargain (most notably Brooklyn Local 1 for 6.99$/bottle last I checked). Far and away the best selection in the area Iíve been able to find, plus Iíve had good luck with talking to those who work there about beer the few times Iíve been able to. Cheese selection right by the beers and wines is a definite plus too! I love this place!

It opened in late 2008 and as of this writing is the companyís only New Hampshire store. Itís a grocery store with an emphasis on meats of all cuts along with a deli, fish market and produce area and a large selection of cheese, spices, and marinades. But the beer aisle is the best in Salem. Itís 50-50 refrigerated and shelved. I saw a few beers that I hadnít seen in New Hampshire before including a lof of Belgians like Petrus, Bavik, Bormen, Augustine Ale, and Wittekerke. A good run of crafts and micros including most of the Samuel Adams, Unibroue, and Rogue series along with beers from Victory and Flying Dog that I donít see regularly. Easy to get to on Rt. 28.

Definitely worth a visit. I went up there last night for the first time and was surprised. They have great prices. Their selection is varied: A lot of Allagash, Ommegang, Unibroue, St. Peters, Flying Dog, and a lot of New Hampshire regional stuff (Smuttynose, etc).
