another good beer guy in a terrible part of town. He stocks de dolle, 3 fontatein, etc, and can only sell favorties. Good to see people try. Check dates on bottles here.

A nice selecion of beer, fair prices, the guys working were friendly. Main street in middletown is still a work in progress, a few drunks were in the store and some low lifes hang around right on the corner. Best selection in middletown though, worth dealing with the bums.

I was rather impressed by this place, they had an excellent selection of Belgian beers, including many I’d never seen before in the states, such as: La Moneuse and Saison Voisin. Lots of lambics, including Cantillon and Drie Fonteinen. Nice prices, generally. Quite a few singles. Lots of 750s, not so many smaller bottles. The American and non-Belgian imports were definitely much thinner. Will be back...

This is a little gem right in my backyard in Middletown, CT. Tucked discretely in the North End business district, it is definitely not the first place that somebody new to the area would gravitate to for good beer. However, the owner John is an intelligent, down-to-earth kind of guy who has a knack for getting some really nice beers from the distributors. Yet, I had written this place of as a wanna-be before a few days ago. Yes, they had a decent selection of belgians (Rochefort, Dupont, Chimay, Westmalle, Delirium, Unibroue, etc.), but it was all kind of stale, like no one had touched one of the bottles in years. I had seen that Ratebeer did not have an official listing of this place, and I was OK with that. But not anymore. This place just refuses to fly under the radar, and a lot of credit has to be given to its owner, John. He has recently re-vamped Forest City’s beer selection to be truly top caliber. I was SHOCKED to find Struise, Mikkeller, and 3 Fonteine as imports, and a huge selection of Southern Tier, Great Divide, and Rogues for domestic crafts. In the span of two weeks, this place has moved into the upper echelon of beer retailers in the area. Huge props, Forest City. Keep up the good work!
