This is a beverage store, cigar shop, and convenience store with a decent selection of beers from crafts and imports to the routine macros. There are several local crafts available from New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, and Massachusetts. Nice selection of McNeillís and Harpoon brews I do not regularly see since both have breweries in close proximity. SIngles available. The customer service was friendly but not necessarily knowlegable. Food is your usual convenience store fair. Relatively easy to get to off I-89, Exit 20...head south about a quarter of a mile.

If you are looking for cheap beer and are not concerned with freshness this is place is fine. If youíre looking for a large selection of craft and want it fresh, this place ISNíT what youíre looking for.
The entire center of the store is rows of 12 packs and cases of mostly Macro. The craft beer is tucked away in the far back corner of the store with a few random end caps floating around the store without any rhyme or reason. Most of the bottles I looked at had a fair amount of dust coating them. The higher ABV bottles will be fine but I would question the beer under 6%. They had a handful with Imports but nothing I havenít found elsewhere. Anyhow I guess if you where in the area you can find something halfway decent to drink. However, I wouldnít make any kind of special trip to stop here.

A very decent bottle shop in its own right, but also likely the best option for miles around. The selection if heavy on New England breweries, and Iíve found some NH/ VT/ MA stuff that I havenít seen anywhere else. The King also boasts a nice range of local meaderies and cideries. Prices are generally pretty good. Well worth a visit if youíre in the Upper Valley.

In West Leb worth a stop, but donít make a special trip. OK selection with some odd stuff, mostly regional beers. A lot sold by case or six/ four pack. A little pricey.

This is a warehouse in an area with extremely high traffic but with a great selection of beer and nonexistent service to answer questions for you.
My love - hate with Bev King grows each time I enter but itís the only place I can get some beers without crossing into Mass. They sell a lot of beers by the case, a lot more in singles refrigerated and they have the standard good beers from Belgium and England as well as the west coast. They donít take risks and stock something pricey and rare so donít expect to find any hard to find beers here.
I hate to love this place. I really do.

I found out about this place on a beer blog, although I have been driving by it for years. I guess I never expected that they would have such a good selection of beer. They have a good sized collection of everything from macros to rare imports as well as everything in between. The collection is not well organized, so you do have to look carefully for the prizes. The staff was not at all knowledgeable about the beer on sale, but were polite and friendly. Iíll be back...
