Atmosphere
A little bit dreary. Jam-packed with rows of beer to choose from. Who cares though? Itís a beer store.

Quality
Havenít found an "expired" beer yet, although I havenít even come close to trying everything there. Havenít seen any bottles coated in dust. Pretty popular place with a frequent rotation, so the risk of a stale beer is pretty low.

Service
The guys that work there are bored as hell. They canít seem to be bothered to even say "hi" to you. When you ask if they have a beer, theyíll mumble and point in the general direction of where it is. This has been my experience; your mileage may vary. Not too important as I typically go to browse and donít want to be hounded by overzealous sales people.

Selection
At least two full, double-sided rows of American craft beer and another double-sided row of one-offs and imports (mostly Belgian).

Value
Seems to be relatively standard. Maybe a bit on the high end but nothing ridiculous.

Overall
If you live anywhere in south-western Connecticut or lower Westchester this place is a must-try. Theyíve got a really great and varied selection. They also regularly update their BeerMenus page (http://www.beermenus.com/places/2177-port-chester-beer-distributor), which is a huge help when trying to figure out where youíre going for your next craft beer!

Great, no frills beer store. This place has really grown over the last few years with an excellent selection and the ability to mix and match any twelve ounce bottles. Pricing on the mix and match is not clear since the per bottle prices are not listed. Iíve never talked beer with any of the staff but i have been offered assistance on occasion. Their organization leaves something to be desired since they merely organize by import, domestic and 22oz bottle so finding specific styles can be a challenge.

Interesting store with very solid beer selection. Lots of Captain Lawrence, Alesmith, and a ton of regional choices. Prices seem in line for area. Had some brews that were not available at some of the higher rated stores in the area. Worth a stop if in the area.

Really good beer store. Had a nice selection for the size. A good assortment of microbrews and European beers. The manager or owner or whoever I talked to knew a lot about his beers and gave good advice.

Havenít been here since I was a kid. The selection is overwhelming and worth the trip. The staff was very friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a special beer or something new this store has more than any store I have found in lower Fairfield and Westchester.

Basically a warehouse with vast selection. Only sells beer. Tons of 22 oz bottles from hard to find Midwest and West Coast beers. I purchased a Stone IPA and a Rogue and both were fresh. A no nonsense place, but not as affordable as I thought it would be.

Wow, I stumbled across this place while returning to CT. Didnít look like much from the outside, but the selection made it worth it. To my surprise, they had three aisles full of quality brews, with heavy hitters like Stone, Goose Island, Troegs, Southampton, Brooklyn, and Allagash well represented. I picked up GIís Matilda as well as two from Captain Lawrence. A no nonsense kind of place with pretty average prices.

Located a mere 1/4 mile from the CT border, this place offers most regional and NYS beers. While you wonít find the limited releases here, you will find things like Stone RIS and Wagner Valley Tripple Bock. The staff are friendly but donít know beer. Periodically, they run specials where you get free glassware with purchases. What I like most about this place is its convenvience for lower CT residents since the are open and sell on Sundays and after 9PM. Not worth going out of your way for, but worth a visit if in the area.
