The Vault was the first true craft beer store in Lewiston/Auburn. We had a couple of other beverage stores that carried some craft beer but you could not count on them keeping up with new releases and adding new distributors. Susan Hall started The Vault with a wine focus but quickly expanded to include a couple coolers of craft beer. Shortly after she hired Tom Ardia to be the craft beer guy at the store. They do tastings as often as the State will allow and will accommodate requests when they can.
The selection is smaller than some of the beer stores in Portland but I have never had a problem finding good beer. Also because Lewiston/Auburn’s beer scene is small they often have some of the beers that sell out quickly in Portland. If you are looking for something give them a call or send them an email, they respond quickly and are always willing to help.
