This was my favorite beer store spot while I was a student at UConn. Despite the fact that most of their business comes from their sales of 30 racks of Keystone and handles of Dubra, Villa has one of the best selections of fine beer in NE Connecticut. Since the store is very close to the college, prices arenít too reasonable, but the staff is always quick to help good beer lovers.

Best for miles, unless you go to MA. For a store less than 5 miles from a large college, Villa has a great selection of beer, and decent wine too. Anything else is Captain Morgans/Dubra all the way, but Iím impressed by their beer.

A really big store that is largely frequented by college students. The focus clearly isnít on craft beer and quality imports, but they do carry a good bit of it. In fact, itís probably the best selection in this part of the state (east of 84). It seems like they never get anything new, so donít stop in too often.
