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.

Belle petite place, à 30 minutes de old orchard beach. Définitivement le meilleur endroit de la région pour se procurer des bières de spécialités. Bonn sélection de bières américaines, Belge, anglaises et allemandes. Les prix sont dans la moyenne, mais pour les plus grosses bouteilles, je dirais que c’est asser dispendieux. 22$ pour la old rasputin bourbon barrel. Très bon service et conseils. Beautiful place near old orchard beach. Probably the best in the area. Good variety of americans, belgians, germans and english beer. Beers are a little expensive. Excellent service.

Been here twice now. Selection is pretty decent. They had a good selection of Maine microbrews, although not as many as I had hoped. A large selection of Belgians. A nice lady named Amy was very pleasent and helpful. She knew her beer. Store isn’t as big as I would have expected, but it’s clean and well lit. They also sell a lot of glassware. Hours are kind of limited, so check their website for hours before driving there.

Dawn has improved her selection and prices over the years, the newer location in the Hannaford mall gives her more space. As near as I can tell her claim that she has the most in Northern New England is true, I have been to all the major stores listed in BA. 550 beer choices is excellent. Her prices are reasonable and fair and the staff seems to be able to remember what is new especially for me. Huge selection of Belgians that are the same as or cheaper than other liquor stores.
Beer is my luxury and this is the place to enjoy getting the hard to find.
A wonderful place to stop, talk beer, and browse the large selection of domestic and imported choices. Dawn and her daughter Kristi are knowledgeable, attentive, and a real pleasure to deal with. Unfortunately, there are plenty of good beers that are not distributed to Maine, but Dawn says she will do her best to get whatever she can, if you make a suggestion or request. Check out their website (link above), which gives a good sense of their selection and their beer-friendly attitude.

great family run store .if its available in Maine they have it or will get it .always helpful even stayed a little late while I was making up my mind (lots to choose from ) you are welcome to break up packs if they don’t have it in singles (small bottles) to me this is the Best beer store in southern Maine.
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!
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.
Very impressed with this store. Excellent selection of local and imported beers. Very pleasant service from the lady (sorry I forgot her name) on duty.
Will definitively go back there on my next vacation in the area.
Nice store, smaller than I expected, but they do alot with what they have. Great selection, pretty strong on Belgians, good on ME micros and various other US craft brews (DFH, Rogue, Smuttynose), some Germans. UPDATE 7/12/10 Tully’s has really grown since my initial rating (which was before they had moved). I’d now consider them the best beer store in ME. UPDATE: 4/15/12:
Selection keeps getting better and better.
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.
