Nice selection, helpful staff, but consistently more expensive than other stores in the area. I’ve also heard talk of them hoarding popular releases for "valued customers." The inability to mix a six is pretty disappointing too.

Nice selection. Terrible prices, especially on limited stuff ($13 for a bottle of 120 minute IPA, $60 for a bottle of bourbon that should be $45, etc.). There’s a place down the road that charges much less. However, their selection is good for CT, and some of the people who work there are really nice and helpful.

This store has a decent selection of import and and crafts. Most of these are along a long beer row to the left hand side of the store. There are several coolers on the back wall where you can grab bomber bottles and six-packs but you cannot mix and match. The inability to mix and match is always a black mark as far as I am concerned. There were, however, several ready-made multi-packs so you would have to take what they pack in them. The pricves were moderate although the staff were friendly and made an effort to help me out.

one of the best in CT. LARGE liquor store roght off Queen St in Southington. A large selection of imports and craft beers, never had a truly amazing find or anything like that, but if its for sale in CT, it will be here no doubt about it.

solid place for CT, tons of stillwater and good belgian assortment for what we can get in ct. Def in the top 5 stores in the state. Too bad for CT liquor taxes so high microbrews can’t afford to distribute to CT. Mass has just twice as many breweries distributing. Knowledgeable people though, Def a place to check out

Great selection for Connecticut. One of the best in the state. Found many that I have been searching for. Staff was friendly, outgoing, and knowledgeable. Prices are good for the area also.

I agree with Elihapa... definitely a MUST visit. Being from the Southington/Plainville area, I am absolutely spoiled by having such a vast selection nearby. Only problem is that I don’t have the funds necessarily to try all that they have to offer.
Their beer manager, Bill, is very knowledgeable and obviously take pride in his selection. Ask him and his crew what’s new on the shelves or what’s worth trying... Some highlights that they offer... Stone Brewing Co, Heavy Seas Mutiny Fleet, Great Divide, and Lagunitas just to name a few...

Good location and a great selection of beers from around the globe. The beer manager (Matt ?) is very knowledgeable and friendly making every trip worth while.
The selection is only limited by CT’s arcane distribution laws.

Located in central CT not 20 minutes from Hartford or Middletown, Southingtons vast beer selection should entice anyone coming through the area. They have a beer manager who is very familiar with quality craft beer, and the job he has done at Southington is highly commendable. It took me a good half hour to go through their entire selection, mostly because there were both domestics and imports that I had never seen before. If you are in CT and looking for De Dolle, Bernardus, Rochefort, J.W. Lees, rare Allagash, and all the other good stuff from NE, this should be a necessary stop.
