Default Imported Beer in New Hampshire

Hello,

I'm realtively new to the New Hampshire area and I was wondering if
anyone here knew where to buy imported beer in this state. I am
particularly looking for Leffe and/or Hoegaarden, both Belgium beers. I
know Kappy's in Massachusetts sells them, but I was hoping to find a
retailer in NH.

Thanks,
Karen

It's been awhile since I lived in the vicinity, but
New Hampster used to have arcane laws that restricted
sales of alcoholic beverages over a certain, fairly
low strength to state liquor stores. IIRC any beer
over something like 6% abv couldn't be sold in
package stores, etc.
While beer like Hoegaarden Wit is light enough to
make it under the cap, I suspect some importers simply
fail to do business in NH if many/most of their
portfolio is impacted.

At any rate, I used the State Liquor Store conveniently
located on the tollway north of Boston when I was in the
area; they had some strong beers not available in RI where
I lived.

Thanks,
Karen

It is alleged that K claimed:

Sorry, I cannot help you directly. But my brother, who is in the
Portsmouth area, told me this weekend that he often goes to Harrington
Wine And Liquors in Chelmsford, MA, when he's looking for something
beyond "the usual suspects".
