Actually, I ordered some throught King's Contrivance Liquor Shop in Columbia...my parents live nearby. I had to get a case, so I figure I will drink one, lay some down and perhaps bring one to share to the MD Big Brew Day on the 23rd.
hey Drac There's a liquor store I went to recently in HoCo. It's at Rt 1 and Montgomery rd. Really great selection. Close to you to check out. It might be called Cindy's??? or something like that. There's also Wells at Balto city county line on York rd in Towson. Charlie

Yeah, Charlie, I know the place. I live about a half mile as the crow flies from it. I haven't been there in a while since last timeI was their the selection of exotic stuff was a bit lacking. They did have some microbrew stuff, but the last time I was there it wasn't anything super. I'll have to stop by again and check it out.

A couple of good bottle stores in MD:

Ye Olde Liquor Shoppe (Frederick) - good selection, good prices
Corridor (Laurel) - incredible selection
Allview Liquours (Columbia)

Has Allview's selection improved? I used to live on Dorsey Hall Dr right across the street and when I lived there is was so so. Some micros, but that's about it. The nice thing about Corridor is that you can build your own 6 pack.

They have a shelf in the corner where they carry a selection of 750ml Belgians, craftbeer and some of the more expensive 12 oz (ie, DFH) beers.

Columbia Liquors in Columbia (off Shaker Drive) has a decent selection. They have a walkin cooler in the back with all the crafts & exotics. They even have a make your own 6er. The manager indicated that they are looking to expand their selection of beer in the future.

It's got everything in Catonsville beat. I don't remember how exotic but does have a large microbrew selection. Don't know what it brings from across the pond. We must live near each other, I'm off Frederick rd.
Wells on York road is still my favorite. Always has something new coming in the door. They also have a "beer guy". My parents live 1/2 block from Wells.
Here's a site w/ some great stores

I'm going up to the state line place this afternoon just to check it out. I'll file a full report when I return. :P

Fulll report:

State Line Liquors is just about the most awesome place on the whole planet of Maryland. From the outside, it looks like ANY OTHER run down redneck out in the woods liquor store (in fact, there is a liquor store right across the street and they look the same, I almost pulled into the wrong one).

Looks out of the way, you walk into heaven. It doesnt look like it's got high end stuff, but on the ratty old shelves lies PURE GOLD in the bottle. I know, cuz I saw some Goldshlager.

Anywho, selection wise - this place is downright great for imports, less so for micros. There's a 'decent' selection of micros (I finally got Double Bastard in the 22), mostly regional though with the exception of the big names (STone, Rogue).

As for international, it's like a country by country tour of Europe and beyond. There's a shelf of the asian brews, a shelf of Russian/Lithuanian brews, 2 shelves of German brews. Another shelf of mead and cider. Then a long ass hall that covers Brit and Belgium. Belgium being one of the largest selections.

Edit: My description of 'shelves' may be a bit different than most. I'm talking shelving UNIT. 4 shelves in height and approximately 4' in length. Deep enough to store 6-7 16oz bottles.The Belgian section alone was probably 25+ feet long... < now back to our relgularly scheduled review >

Yes, I saw (and bought) Cantillon. I saw at least 6-10 different breweries of Kriek, Geuze, and Lambic. I bought about half of them. :P The K,G,L section (segregated from the rest of the Belgians) was almost as big as the entire Germany section.

I bought a case of Lithuanian beer (plus another 8-10 bottles of other lithuanians) for my dad, and a bunch of belgians for myself.

If you sign up for the free membership (obviously a ploy to get your email address), you get 10% off singles. So I was happy. Between me and my roommate, we were easily over $150 and only beacuse I kept restraint after spending so much on my beer for my father.

So yeah, major thumbs up. I will likely make that trip monthly as it's about 35-45 minutes from my place.

Wow, sounds pretty sweep.

My plans for a beer roadtrip didn't pan out this weekend. I had to go over to a buddies house to pick up a 6er of Maui Brewing Companys CoCoNuT Porter. He picked it up for me while he was in Hawaii for business. This took up the only free time I had this weekend.
