A really good selection for Connecticut, and they let you buy singles/mix a 6 pack. Pretty much the same selection as Manchester. They have a lot of space and fill it with good beers. The guy there was helpful too.

This place is like a candy store for beer enthusiasts! A good selection of New England brews and a great aisle of singles from all over the world (it’s hard to put together a six pack with all of the choices!). The staff is always very helpful and friendly. I go out of the way to shop here.

a much better spot than i was expecting. great service and was so happy to see the shelf of singles...so rare for a CT beer store to do that. Was really there just to check it out due to travelling on the meritt but found myself buying two 4 packs of singles. great spot when in the area.

More and more I tend to shop locally here as opposed to Amity Wine & Spirits, because they seem to have more hard-to-find selections. While their sheer volume doesn’t compare to Amity, they seem to more carefully choose what they do carry, and I would say the staff is pretty knowledgeable on the whole. Prices are on par with most other decent beer shops in the New Haven area.

This place is a hit or miss for me. they do carry a pretty good selection and have some good singles from time to time but many of the singles are way past there prime. Good import section with some of the best available in Connecticut. I can always find a few good large bottles and they have decent mixed 12 packs. This is one of the better spots in the state but they just don’t seem to have someone who really follows up on there beer selection.

This is a large liquor store with an unusually good beer selection. It is big, open, and easy to find things in. They also allow you to purchase many kinds of beer individually. Overall, their selection of beer is excellent but not outstanding. I have seen stores with much more extensive collections. Extra plus: right next door to Trader Joe’s, so I can do a 2-in-1 trip!

This is a very large store with both an excellent wine selection and an excellent beer selection. Their prices tend to be a little lower than everyone else and they stock quite a few hard to find beers like Cantillon, Old Marley, TH Imperial Porter, and others. They have a massive cooler section which stocks six packs of just about every New England beer available in CT and a large back shelf that is filled with lots of singles. There are quite a few people who work there who know a lot about beer and are quick to recommend local bars to anyone interested. This is the must stop location for out of towners looking for CT brews, but do not come here expecting the kind of rare beers available in Naugatuck if you are a native of the region..
