Seacoast NH Local Beer Purveyor

Nick Smith | Jan 29, 2006 09:44 AM

I've lived in the Seacoast for a few years (teaching at UNH and living in Newmarket) and I've been delighted by the range of excellent beers made in northen New England.

I've found it difficult, however, to find places to buy many of the best local choices. I've found the widest selection at the Portland Public Market, but that is over an hours drive from here and at bit out of my usual grocery shopping range. I'm wondering if anyone knows of anything closer, say Portsmouth of Kittery area, that has a nice slection of local and Maine beers. I can always get a few Smuttynose, Magic Hats, and Shipyards at the local grocery stores such as Shaw's, Philbricks, etc., but I have a feeling that there must be a better place out there.

I'm looking, for instance, for selections such as Allagash White, varties of Casco Bay, Gritty's Black Fly, Lake Trout Stout, Geary's London Porter, Shipyard Munich Dark, Magic Hat Heat of Darkness, and the like.

Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
