Top Shelf Brews is a recent find for me. I was searching for some Resonation Pale Ale from Great Rhythms Brewing and one of my Seacoast NH friends told me Top Shelf had it. I stopped by after visiting Blue Lobster Brewing (which is almost across the street) and grabbed 3 bottles.
Last week I made my second trip to Top Shelf to check out the inventory and grab some beer that is not available in Maine. They have Oskar Blues, Firestone Walker and some of the smaller New Hampshire breweries like; Throwback and Candia Road. The day I was there they also had Barrel Aged Bigfoot from Sierra Nevada so I grabbed a bottle of this.
Top Shelf has tastings every Thursday and offers a Beer of the Month club. In the couple of interactions I have had with the owner Susan she has been very pleasant and knowledgeable. If you live in the Seacoast area or are from Maine and visiting the area be sure to stop by Top Shelf.
