Worth the detour driving to Portland, this ending up having the best selection of my stops in Maine, with service and organization. A little pricey, but almost anything I wanted was here, with the bonus of a few Shelton brothers’ selections that were sold out elsewhere.
Small place but they pack in quite a bit of beer. For the location I wish the focus was more on local beers. There are a ton of Allagash but who cares. They offer most beers in a mixed sixer, so you can grab some new ticks. Service was friendly and knowledgable. Great spot if you’re looking for some national coverage, but I imagine there are betters to grab some locals.
Easy to miss store because it is part of a mall and is not visible from the street. The “Tully’s” logo is however one of the mall array of logos sign that is clearly visible from the street. This is the best store I have found in Maine so far. The size/number of products rivals RSVP in Portland but with a better selection, a pleasant display and knowledgeable staff. Lots of fridge space so plenty of cold beer to bring to the beach. All the Maine brews you may want, lots of Belgians, good England selection. If it is available in Maine, Tully’s has it. The Cadillac Mountain Stout was out everywhere in Portland but they had stacked up at Tully’s. I had an interesting discussion with the lady (owner/manager?) and she explained to me that she doesn’t carry lambics because they don’t sell in Maine but a few customers call in advance and she gets them cases of Hanssens and such. In the middle of nowhere but if you are hitting the main Maine beaches (Ogunquit, Old Orchard) then this is the place to go to.
When I was stationed in Maine, I’ve been here several times. Its always a clean place with more than enough beers from different companies to make one think for quite some time to wonder what they really want to buy. They have a pretty good glassware selection as well. The value, well, it is liberal Maine, so don’t expect to walk away with great deals. Overall, from what I remember, its a pretty good place with a nice variety of brews, but because its liberal Maine, you’ll get what you’re looking for here.
Wow, c’est égale à Belfast Co-op pour le choix, mais c’est plus espacé. Il y avait beaucoup de choix intéressant, comme la Nogne O Imperial Stout, j’aurais aimer achèté plus, mais j’étais à ma limite. Donc si vous êtes à Well, Kennebunk ou Ogunquit et vous êtes des amateurs de bonnes bières, allez là, point!
Selection is very good for the area in Maine. They had a good selection of Maine microbrews. A nice selection of Belgians. And the variety is growing. The owner is a beer geek and knows what she is talking about. She has a passion for beer. Her staff is also, very knowledgeable and will go out of their way to help you. They have a lot of the stock in coolers but if you want something room temperature, just ask and they will get it for you. She will also do a special order if you call ahead and her distributor can get it. They also sell a lot of proper glassware. Oh yeah, they have wine as well, so if your friends or family don’t have the passion for craft beer, you can get a nice bottle of wine.
Smallish store on busy Route 1 in the Hannaford Plaza. However, what this place lacks in size, it greatly makes up in an excellent selection. Most items are in the coolers as well as on the shelves. Lots of local Maine brews. Friendly staff.
I really wanted to update my earlier review from 2007 because I think I was being too picky then. This is probably about the best beer store in Maine. It is the best one that I have been to anyway. They have a large selection of local/regional brews, especially from Maine as well as imports. Nearby in NH things are a bit restricted so Tully’s is one of these easy to get to stores where I can find something I really have wanted to get my hands on. Beer Lady Dawn is so enthusiastic about beer and she really knows her stuff. Easy to get to off US Route 3 in the Hannaford’s Shopping Plaza.
Wow. Nice selection of New England beers, all available in singles. I walked out with almost 2 cases of singles. The employees were very helpful as well. Thanks ladies. DFH WWS available for $8 per bottle. Lots of "macro" Belgians, British, etc. Nice selection for such a small area.
