Recently relocated to 101A next to Gold’s Gym. Much better parking, lots of room in the shop. Owner and personnel are very helpful and informative. Quality of materials is excellent, prices are very competitive. Service is very good.
A cool small little bottle shop that is one minute walk from the Martha’s Exchange brewpub. The ratebeer map is not displaying this store correctly (might be fix when you read this) but trust me, this is one minute walk from Martha’s Exchange. And if you like beer the only reason to stop in Nashua is to drink and eat at Martha’s Exchange (highly recommended). So may as well check-out the store one minute walk from the pub. A small but really packed store that offers a lot despite its limited floor space. A lot of White Birch, if that’s your thing, almost as many White Birch as the main White Birch store up north (Bert’s). Limited releases locals, some cool items, some stuff I didn’t even know existed and I’m usually pretty aware of the New-England beer scene. I bought some obscure beers like Manchester The Devil’s Rooster and others. This place appears to be a one-man operation that is both a beer store and a home brewer shop. So service can be personalized or totally lacking. I happened to be there when the owner/manager was busy with local home brewers so service was just the worst I ever had from a beer store. 15 minutes wait to pay for my bottles when there were 3 people in the store. But it was probably just bad timing. Anyway, bottom line, if you go to Martha’s Exchange (and you should) you should drop by this store. If not going to Martha’s Exchange, the store is not worth a detour.
Jeff has the best selection of homebrew supplies in the area, and he will passionately talk your ear off about beer, wine, hot sauce, etc. He is a great sounding board for recipe formulations and provides house recipes for those doing extract brews.
He sells a great selection (by NH standards) of micro brewed beers, and will sell mixed six packs. He also sells wine and hot sauces. The beer can collection on the wall is also not to be missed.
Like others have said, Martha’s Exchange (a brew pub) is across the street. There is also an Irish Pub, The Peddlers Daughter down the street.
A top notch bottle shop, and homebrewing supplies if you are so inclined. The selection was aimed at local stock, and for that was fairly complete. More Pennichuck bottles than at the brewery, same for Manchester brewing. A couple of Smuttynose and Harpoon were here that do not make their way further Northeast which I was pleased to pick up. Single bottles, no problem. Imports were fine, with an emphasis on cellerable Belgians. Service is world class, jeff is a one-man band, but knows every beer intimately, and if you are wanting to talk to someone who knows beer at a brewer level, here is a stop for you. Helped me pack up my beers for the airport successfully.
Stopped in while in the area. The store was not what I expected when I first entered. It was small, but jam-packed with homebrew supplies. The entire left wall was loaded with great beers with a good mix of bombers and six packs. I loved the fact that you could buy single 12 oz. bottles out of any six pack and all prices were clearly marked. I ended up talking to the owner for a long time about homebrewing and different beers. He was REALLY helpful and a genuinely nice guy. The only places I have been to with a better selection in a pretty wide area are Julio’s and maybe Andover Liquors, but Jasper’s had much better prices than Andover Liquors. I ended up buying Harpoon Leviathon, Smuttynose Big A IPA, Smuttnose Imperial Stout, Flying Dog Horn Dog, and a few others. I will definitely go back anytime I am in the area.
Have been there twice in the past month. If you want beer in NH, this is the place. I say that, in the context that New Hampshire is a bad place to go beer shopping. They are just much much better than everyone else here. Bought a mixed pack of La Fin du Mond, Sam Smith Taddy, Stone Smoked Porter, and Grimbergen Double. I think the entire Smutty Big Beer series is there. Chimay, Unibroue, St. Peter, Allagash, Brooklyn just to name a few. Overall they get points boost for being pretty much the only true bottle shop in southern NH.

As the name would suggest, the main business is home brew supplies. However, the owner keeps a section of the store well stocked with micro brews. No refrigeration, which is ok by me. Big selection of Unibroue as well as many others. Prices are reasonable. The only knock on the place is lack of parking.
This is actually a home brewing supply house and they do have a good selection of home brew supplies, malts, barleys, etc. It is tight quarters but at the same time it is rather quaint. Against a side wall there is about twelve feet of shelving with unrefrigerated specially selected imports and micros. No B-M-C here. The owne shared with me the tidbit that he only stocks micros and imports that are not readily available elsewhere. Example, you can buy Magic Hat products all over New Hampshire including all grocery stores but not at Jasper’s.. Prices are reasonable. Fans of beer history will enjoy the display of classic and vintage beer cans all along the back wall. There are a few hundred of those. A very nice place to go for both supplies and the odd brew.

A complete homebrew and bottle shop (for NH standards), with home winemaking and coffee roasting equipment as well. The place is jam packed with gear, and almost every available brew from MA and NH, including every Smuttynose Big Beer from 2006, and a massive stockpile of 2006 bigfoot. The owner is extremely helpful and the shop’s prices are very good. An excellent place, overall.
The owner is super friendly and helpful. I went in to buy a keg system and he spent a ton of time going over the adventages and disadvantages of each option, then spent even more time telling me how to set it up and use it. He even printed out his own set of instructions on how to do everything. Great resource for all brewing ingredients, equipment and information. Highly recommended.
