Wine Source to be open seven days

The Wine Source (3601 Elm Ave.) has been approved for a seven-day liquor license, according to wine manager Matt Wood. There is still some red tape to clear up, but Wood thinks the Hampden liquor store will introduce its new hours sometime around Labor Day.

"That's what we're shooting for," he said.

Anyone ever been to state line liquors in Newark, DE?
Is there anything that compares around here for beer selection? That place is incredible

A pox on thee, Sessa!

I toilst not on ye Sabbath!

Yes, State line liquors in Newark, DE is amazing! I haven't been able to find anything that good in the area, I'd like to find someplace nearby with that good of a selection, anyone know of any?

State Line is the best place for aisle-shopping. Their selection is so amazing that they have at least 50 different brands of mead alone.

That being said, it's 52 miles from Canton (I know this). It would be a lot easier to go grab some mead for the lass in Hampden than Elkton. And besides, Cecil County is a nest of pirates.

I have not been to State Line, but how does Beltway Fine Wine compare?

I've not yet visited State, so I'll rate the stores I've been to in the last 6 months... in terms of overall beer selection, mostly focusing on singles:

1. Wine Source (Hampden)
2. Honeygo Wine & Spirits (Perry Hall)
2a. Wine World (Bel Air)
3. Beltway Fine Wine & Spirits (Towson)

i'm not sure about state line, but beltway wine and spirits is good...but when it comes to beer selection wine source is better imo. they are constantly updating their seasonals and have tasting, which is cool.

but - beltway DOES carry Natty there's THAT

Beltway is good for session brews and better prices. If one is looking for selection and rarities, you'd have to hit the Wine Source and/or Wells. (though wells has been known to have an old stinker or two in the shelves...)

if you need more than the Wine Source offers, you're just being greedy.

Perfect Pour in Columbia has a great selection as well.

This is great news, the Wine Source is the only store in MD that carries Schneider-Weiss' Edel Weiss beer, which is simply divine, and Sunday is the day I drive past Hampden on my way home.

Thank you beer gods!

De Nada, ma Coreyone!
