Stopped in here during a recent visit to Norwalk for bmanning’s wedding. I was looking for some growlers of Olde Burnside and hoping to find some other Connecticut locals. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much to be found.
The place is a large liquor store with the vast majority of its focus on liquor, wine, and BMC product. Along one wall falls a limited craft selection. Most of the beers available here were the largest national brands -- Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams -- along with the larger regional breweries of Long Trail and Magic Hat. The selection of imported craft and smaller locals was very limited. I was only able to spot a single sixer of Thomas Hooker.
Someone did ask me if I needed any help, so I’ll give points for that, but there wasn’t much I had to worry about. Decent place in a pinch if you’re staying at the Hilton nearby, but no real reason to head here otherwise.
