“Located in a strip mall, this place has that kind of NE small town pizza joint vibe. They 8-10 beers on tap but from some strange reason they were serving everything out of plastic cups which definitely cheapens the experience and makes me wonder if I've wandered into a college bar. The beers were solid though the NE IPA's were more bitter than I prefer.“

“Irish tavern with a quaint venue. Selection is interesting collection, but no real theme, other than something for everyone. Food and service are OK.“

“Outside looks like a country store, inside there's a kitchen for to go foods. Large number of beer coolers in the back, plus a couple racks of bombers. Some rarities, a good selection of Belgians and solid NH numbers.“

“This place has come a LONG way over the past few years to become a craft beer haven. While it remains a convenience store in a strip mall on the Derry/Windham line, they have upgraded everything in terms of selection and approach. The store's Facebook feed is now 100% craft beer and that have a number of rarities. Blown away by how far this place has come.“

“In a light industrial park so there's plenty of parking, at least on the weekend. Small bar with a few stools, picnic tables, I think a small parking lot area if I'm not mistaken. Flights of five available or tasters for two bucks each. Small but interesting range of beers. Friendly staff. Worth a visit if in the area.“

“Old Fire Station converted into an Irish Restaurant. Has an old English/Irish feel to it. A lot of exposed dark wooden beams and wooden tables. Rotating beer selection with a mix of craft brews and some mainstream. Bartenders were actually pretty knowledgeable when it comes to beers and very understanding. Prices are pretty good. Service was a little slow. Food was really good. An overall pleasant experience.“

“Intimate tasting room in industrial park area of Derry. There’s a nice, large wood table that sits 6-8 in the middle of room, bench and stool seating at countertops for approximately 15. Staff was friendly, the place is clean, and you can see through to the brewing area in back. It was lively enough on a Saturday afternoon to be a somewhat happening atmosphere. Mixture of rustic and modern--nice wood paneling, pig parephernalia, beautiful wood bar, along with Edison bulbs, a corrugated steel ceiling and aluminum scaffolding. 8 beers on tap, growlers/bottles for sale. If memory serves, 5 taster flight for $8 and 3 flight for $5.“

“This is a convenience store that also has a deli and some tasty fried chicken. But you want to hear about their craft beer selection. It has expanded a lot in the last year. They include a fine collection of local nano-breweries like Henniker, Out.Haus, Rockingham, Stone Face, Kelsen, and 603. No mix and match but many bomber singles. The prices are about the same as other places nearby. The only complaint I have is that they do not put price tags on their beer.“

“Swung by here while visiting my family in Derry a while ago and forgot to rate it. Small place in a little industrial plaza. Little bar on right side with some very nice and knowledgable employees. If I remember correctly 22os bottles are avail and located on the wall accross from the entrance. Growlers are avail as well. Very clean. I’ll definitley be back. These guys make some great beer!“

“Nice little tasting brewery tasting room in Derry NH. Very rustic with wood walls and wood countertops supported by black iron pipes. The brewery owners are a young couple that are friendly and willing to chat with customers. They usually have six or seven beers on. When I first started going there, the tasters were free, now it’s $2.00 for a four ounce taster. Which I find a little high, but that’s the only negative thing I’ll say.“

“I like this place. The rustic wood of the tasting room, the friendly smiles of the owners, the house dog, and a nice view into the backroom microbrewery. You can buy a 4-beer flight for $5 and you can buy their beers in growlers or in bottles. I would recommend that craft beer fans spend an afternoon in Derry-Londonderry NH and visit Rockingham Brewing along with the other breweries and better beer shops all within a 3-4 mile radius.“

“Small tasting room in Derry NH. And it is fairly small. There were 2 people tending bar and they had their full line up ( 6 beers) available for free tasters. They have some logoed merchandise for sale as well as their beer. You can get a tour of the brewing area if you ask They have expanded their opening hours a bit since the first review a year ago. .“

“Stopped in here last week for the first time in about 15 years looking for a little something to quench my thirst after a sooty job up the street. Wow this place has changed. Its your basic olde time New England convenience store with a small deli counter and the usual convenience items. But they have really stepped up the selection of beer here! Most of the the back wall is filled with shelves of warm six backs with maybe twelve feet of shelving facing that with bombers and bigger bottles. They have a selection of macros, but also just about everything available from a distributor in NH. Fair enough pricing, the kind of friendly but not so beer savvy service you would expect from a convenience store. I’m impressed with the way they have steeped up the selection here, will stop by again if in the area.“

“This is a three-barrel brewery that opened up in Match 2014. It is a small place in a small business complex. The tasting room is only open on Saturdays but they hope to expand. The brewery operates daily. Brewery tours upon request. The owners are enthusiastic and so far I have enjoyed all they have offered. Only three beers going at a time but look for the occasional short-batch brew.“

“I’ve stopped here a few times, but only eaten here once, and that was for a beer dinner so my food portion of this review may get updated at some point. Cozy dimly lit bar smack in the middle of Derry Center. A couple of couches off to the right as you walk in a, 20 or so seat bar off to the back right with a smattering of tables to the left. A constantly rotating taplist maybe 12 deep with some of the best beer available in NH. Service is knowledgeable and very attentive. The food I had was fantastic, although I still need to sample from the regular menu that I understand changes often. The place is a bit pricy, but the quality merits it. I will be back.“

“Finally a true craft beer bar in Derry, NH. Cask and Vine features a longish bar of hand-made Vermont Cherrywood, and is accented nicely by more cherry on the bar-back with 14 taps presented front and center. A large chaulkboard above lists the beers on tap. Tables made from oak barrels and arched brickwork opposite the bar give the place a "wine cellar" vibe. This place is spotless and upscale for a beer bar, but keep in mind C+V is a hybrid wine/beer bar. Selection of draught beers is top-notch for NH, with rarities (Founders Bolt Cutter) and locals (two different White Birch) in the mix. Serving sizes and prices of the beers are not specified which I think is a drawback though. Any consumer should be allowed to be well informed of what he is ordering beforehand, and I hope they fix this. The staff is super-friendly and very accomodating though and this will bring patrons back time and time again. I’m not aware of a bottle list being available, perhaps there was but I did not see one. I did not try the food on my visit, but the menu looks delicous and a bit high-end. The "Value" portion of this review is solely based on the price of my Bolt Cutter that I had, which in all fairness is a very expensive beer in the bottle. Hopefully further visits will find larger pours and lower prices and I’ll adjust my review. Congratulations to C+V and I hope they have much success, it’s a beautifull taproom run by some very nice people with a well thought-out selection of fine brews. “

“This is a convenience store on Route 28 in Derry, NH that also sells beer and wine. Their selection was fairly routine with most of the nationally known macros and many nationally known micros such as Sam Adams, Magic Hat, Shipyard, and others. Occassional high quality imports such as Unibroue and the Chimay family. A lot of 12 packs but no mix and match as far as I could tell. There was a singles cooler but you have to pick from what they stock. The occasional oddity shows up. For example I purchased Colt 45 High Gravity in a can here, which I have not seen anyplace in New Hampshire much less in a can. Is it worth a road trip? Nope. But if you are in the Derry area looking for beer and do not feel like driving to Salem, Manchester, or Hooksett (where there are better beer stores), it might hold you over for the night. You can also buy your chips to take home with your beer.“
