Black Sheep Wine and Beer Shop
Fine Wine and Craft Beer Store on the Coast of Maine  


At the Black Sheep Wine and Beer Shop you can find exceptional fine wines, craft beers, artisan chocolate and cheese.

We specialize in small production, estate grown wines from around the world. We love sharing our latest finds!






We have been in business for about 19 years and we have an ever changing collection of about 500 different wines in stock from all over the world, in all price ranges, including vintage and allocated fine wine.

We are proud to carry wonderful local Maine wines and a selection of Maine craft beers in our store. 





We have carefully chosen all of our wines and beers; we are independent retailers!

We taste all the wines and beers before we allow them on our shelves. Our shelves are not stocked by sales reps with quotas - we choose our products based on quality; we only sell products that we enjoy.

We carry gift worthy wines, just for those special occasions when you want a wine that'll dazzle!


At The Black Sheep, we always have handpicked new arrivals and an interesting selection of wines and beers on hand to buy.

We can special order for you, too: wines, one bottle and up; special order beers most often are by the case.

There are over 170 Maine- based breweries in the state now,so we have good access to a wide range of great local craft beers! We keep it fresh by stocking about 60 different brewery labels on the shelves or chilled.




We have a selection of affordably priced wines, about $12-ish, and about 200 wines under $20.00.

Note that our off-season (winter) times are slower, in general, so our inventory may be a little less but it is just as good, as we are able to offer many unique wines and beers that are not always available throughout the year. We offer more one- on -one customer service in our slower times,too.

Our customers appreciate our competitive pricing, case discounts, specials and our unique selection.
