Like so many package stores in New England this one has about 90% hard liquor and wine and 10% beer. This place has a warehouse-like atmosphere as you walk down the beer aisle on the right hand side of the store, There is a walk-in cooler area where you can pick up your 12-packs and cases as well as a few oddities. I saw the whole lineup of Colt 45 fruit beers in there but not on the regular store racks.
I would say it specializes more on nationally known beers both macro and craft. They had the Hooker and Burnisde line as well as a number of Massachusetts beers like Berkshire and Opa-Opa. But 99% of what they sell can be found just about anyplace.
I think the prices are pretty good. There were several closeouts and near-expiration date beers on sale for rock bottom money. Overall the regular prices seemed to be lower than other places in the area I have been to (which are not that many). They do on-site beer tastings. When I was there the tasting of the day was for Blue Moon.

Decent selection. Nothing you wouldn’t find at the other large package stores in the area. Prices are in line with places like M&R and Liquor Depot.

It’s a decent package store in central CT, with a pretty good selection. You can gets lots of local CT beers, as well as some classics like Old Rasputin, and occasionally some rare brews as well. Recommended if you’re in the area.
