While Iíve purchased a lot of beer from State Line, Iíve never been able to rate fairly since I had never stepped foot in the store (bit of a story there). Well that all finally changed today! I think itís sufficient to say that if itís available for sale in the state of Maryland, State Line has it. I canít say Iíve seen a larger selection of beer. The pricing rivals just about any place (the 10% off singles for being in the card club is nice!). No need to worry about singles either. You can take a beer from any six pack to mix and match as you please. The staff are super helpful (particularly Robert who I was finally able to meet today!). Ambiance, well, itís a liquor store. Still, they have a nice little selection of cheeses, a ton of wine, plenty of booze, glassware, and a nice tasting room. Just about the entire inventory is online and they send out a list of new arrivals just about every three to four weeks. I can stop buying any place else as soon as RR, LA, and some of the other hard to get breweries start distributing in Maryland. The best bottle shop Iíve ever been to by far.

2014.03.27 - My first visit. This place is 2:15-2:30hrs away from me but they were the only place on driving distance that had what I wanted, and they had several cases of it. It's not much for ambience, IMO, just nondescript open space but I'm here to buy beer, not take pictures for Better Homes and Gardens. Staff was both very helpful yet slightly annoying as they were constantly cutting down aisles where you are standing or cutting you off as they moved something on a hand truck. Selection was very good. Probably about 20% better than my go-to bottle shops. Definitely some things I don't see elsewhere, including the giant "novelty" bottles of things, and a better assortment of brewers you do see elsewhere. Probably the best Mikkeller selection I have seen. I bought a case of something, got a %15 discount. Grabbed 3x750ml and 1x500ml (which was $24.99) of something else. They signed me up for the loyalty/frequent club which saved me more. Saved over $50 on first trip. The case alone should have been $300 but my total ended up around $330. Definitely not convenient to me but close enough for an occasional visit. And I will certainly check with them if having trouble finding something.

Post Remodel Edit: The beer section is immensely more organized and easy to browse. 10 more growler taps and now a very large space to hold excellent tastings. Selection is the Best you are going to find between DC and Philly. Staff is extremely friendly and will help you track down what your looking for without batting an eyelash. 10% discount if you sign up for their mailing list. What is not to love?

Doesnít look like anything from the outside, but just a really huge selection of local, regional, national and imported beers. Any time I have to drive through the area itís a must stop to stock up random goodies I donít have access to at home. I canít speak to the prices, as I have no reference locally, but itís easy to get to and has lots to choose from, which is enough for me.

Best beer store in the area hands down and now that they have growler fills, I rarely go anywhere else unless Iím out of town. Thereís always something good on tap and the bottle selection is phenomenal, especially the foreign section. More Mikkeller and Evil Twin than Iíve seen anywhere.

Re-rate 08/03/2013. Every time I go in here I am more and more amazed by how many beers they have. Iíve never met the owners, but the cashiers are always fast and friendly, the prices canít be beat, and the beer selection could take hours to peruse in its entirety. This place, if I might be so bold as to sum it up it 3 words, "Kicks Fucking Ass", and that;s without any discussion of the wines, cheeses, and spirits (in the material world, Sting)

The store is a bit of a mess inside, this is due to the lack of dedicated single section. Youíre supposed to grab what you want out of the packs, which creates a mess. This is awesome though at the same time, but it ruins the already bland ambiance.

The service was good, either the owner of manager was present and was super friendly. The selection was also pretty darn good, a nice variety of things all available at a relatively good price, though some things were definitely higher than what Iím used to in New Jersey,. What is great though is that if you sign up for a membership, which takes 10 seconds, then you get instant discounts on things.

Overall this is a necessary visit if youíre within the area. Iíd say itís worth stopping in at least once even if youíre two hours away.

Do not judge this book by itís cover. Looks like your typical local liquor store from the outside, but inside this place is a gem. The selection is huge. Beer is somewhat organized by country. Has a great selection of American craft breweries and has the best import selection Iíve seen. Lots of meads as well if that is your thing. I knew what I was looking for, but they had a lot of people on staff and I was asked several times if I needed any help. The staff was very friendly and are happy to just talk beer if they arenít too busy. Prices are reasonable and the free discount club takes an extra 10-15% off of everything as a great bonus. Definitely a bottle shop I wish I had in my backyard. I try to make the 2 1/2-3 hour round trip down from Central PA at least 2 or 3 times a year.

I made a stop here again with a buddie on my way back from Philly, He really wanted to check it out and buy some beer, so we went inside, he was amazed that the outside did not do the inside justice, I still think that the prefect pour in Elkridge has a better selection than State line, just my opinion, I did not look forit but The perfect pour always Has the Mikkeller 1000 ibu in stock when i go and thats my favorite brew of all time!and i just feel there selection is a little better as they have more of a selection.if you live near Stateline by all means go, but itís not worth the drive for me, Although i did read there keg selection online and wow itís extensive,.

Does not look like much but a Schlitz and cheap booze haven on the outside, but believe me the inside is nirvana .... I cannot think of a place I have ever seen so many belgian beers being sold in one spot on a 20-30 foot stretch of shelving .... Huge selection of Italian beers ..... Added multiple countries in this store Eastern Block and Eastern European .... Nice selection of British (Some Vintages can be had), Dutch (DeMolen, Mikkeller) and German beers ..... US Micro ranges from the usual Stones and Rogues to rarities (New Belgium/Boulevard/Maui) for a PA guy like myself. They had a great representation of small and larger Maryland micros including Duclaw/Flying Dog/Stillwater .... Staff was friendly and helpful even recommending joining their price club for 10-15% off and they have wine, booze and foods like cheeses and munchies .... the prices were very reasonable .... this place is a must visit and a total gem
