Stopped in here during a recent visit to Norwalk for bmanningís wedding.
The biggest section of the store is taken up by plenty of wine, as would be expected from the name. Toward the black and in a short quarter-aisle near the right side is a selection of beer. Thereís the standard BMC fare, but also a pretty decent selection of craft. Some Stone and other outside the area products plus Thomas Hooker and other Northeastern beers. In the cooler, they had two growler selections from Olde Burnside -- just what I came for -- as well as two growler selections from Berkshire and plenty of Berkshire bottles.
I didnít ask for help, so I canít really comment there. There were a few people working the floor, so I assume I could have gotten some assistance. Selection wasnít great and this isnít something to stop off the highway for, but if youíre in the area you should be able to pick something worth trying up here.

A small selection of microbrews with some 12 packs of the more popular stuff like Sam Adams and Sierra Nevada. Not too much outside of that range but a few choices from other places like Stone, Unibroue etc. More of a liquor and wine place.

A large store in the Wal*Mart shopping center. Boasts a small but respectable selection of NE regionals. Nothing on the higher end of the spectrum, but their prices are reasonable and they are your best bet if staying along Route 7.
