Clean, well-organized, well-lit. Good presentation of nearly the full selection of NH-available beers. Ever-expanding selection of NH brews, as well. Tastings on Thursdays. Almost all beers available as singles. Great job at making the best of NHís mediocre selection.

Nice little shop off Route 1. Very clean and well organized store with mostly warm six-packs, singles and bombers. Very friendly service when prompted. Good selection for New Hampshire. Local brewery section was a nice touch. Prices seemed reasonable. Overall a nice store to stop into but not worth a special trip.

Top Shelf Brews is a great place for me to pick up the mix 6pack or some locals like 603 and Throwback. Iím not sure what some of the low reviewers are expecting and after reading some of their other reviews, I understand the ignorance a little better. The store blows away some of the grubby other local stops and convenience stores in the area. Selection can always be better at any store, but it can vary with availability and season. Very helpful staff, always keeping the facebook page up-to-date, and continually adding photos of new arrivals, tasting day information, and more. I have yet to experience anything less than great at this store and I especially like to support the local breweries, Top Shelf brings it.

went to this place per a recommendation of a friend. was met by Susan ( owner ). she showed me around the place and talked about the " wall of Beer" . Love the mix a 6 pack option. store has a great selection of craft beer for NH. Great to see a place that doesnít sell BMC!! If you are in the area stop by. Im told tastings are on Thursdays, and usually have local food as an offering. Im sure ill be back!!

Susan gets five stars for customer service. She goes out of her way to make her customers happy. Her store is clean and very well organized. She does the absolute best with NH distribution and has everything that the state can get. She has weekly beer tastings and has a very up-to-date Facebook page that she answers and makes posts on a daily basis. All her latest arrivals are posted on Facebook with good photos. Iíve visited the store several times and will be back for sure. Very good option to find beer on the NH Seacoast. Mix six packs and single bottles are a great selling point for most craft drinkers, I really love that; it is an option here as well. Prices are comparable to any other place in Eastern NH.

I got to say the place was very clean,but was not impressed with the selection,i guess I was looking for more big bottles.They seem to push sixpacks and mix and match.i was greeted by a lady sitting behind a computer.i was the only one in this store,i felt maybe she could have got up and helped me out and answered any questions I may have ,but handeled all buisnes from her seat .I looked around for about ten minuts trying to find something to buy .felt bad for her I did ask her a few questions about some different Beers and figured out she may just be filling in for someone and had no clue about beer.I did end up buying a beer that I just recently had and new it was good and went on my way.She was very nice but never moved from her seat,I donít think I would go back

To be honest I was expecting more from a dedicated beer store. Mainly singles, very little limited releases. No bombers. The owner seemed to think she knew more about beer than she does. As of my posting 4 of the best reviews have (1) after their names..... I think the owner probably wrote them.

So you know, this is my first review on ratebeer. I was back in NH, coming from California and I looked this place up. Itís really hard to find a decent retail craft beer selection in the seacoast, so I found out. The owner Susan was super passionate and knowledgeable and she helped me make several great selections for some local beers. The store is well organized and I will surely stop back the next time Iím in NH. Bravo.

Beautiful store!! The craft beer wall is impressive. I found a good selection for NH! In fact, they had Bolt Cutter which I didnít even know had come into NH yet. The woman at the counter was inviting, informative and helpful. This is a great find and I will definitely return.

Stopped in this spot after getting an email telling me they had everything that the "other" place I just rated didnít. Was in the area again a few weeks later and decided to check it out. The selections are very organized and the place is pretty immaculate. Not the kind of place your gonna stumble on something as its all pretty well thought out and displayed/ the selection is OK but having been to a few beer shops in NH they just dont have a good distribution system. Cans of Oskar were pretty old. Other things I was looking for was pretty limited or non existant such asFirestone Walker, Boulder, Trout River, Full Sail. The person working seemed knowledgable but I just dont think NH gets that much good beer. Luckily there is Blue Lobster down the street so I was able to make the trip through Hampton worthwhile.
