Great place that devotes two entire warehouse-size walls to beer. And they mean business. If you are looking for the classic NE stuff (Harpoon, Magic Hat, Shipyard, etc), go straight to the cooled fridges, where it 6-packs are arranged roughly by geographic area of origin. If you want better stuff (or fine European brews), head straight for the far left store aisles, where all this is arranged quite nicely. You won’t find anything rarer than say, Cantillon or Hooker’s Liberator Doppelbock, but there is one HUGE plus about this store: you can break ANYTHING into singles!! Just pull ’em out of their case and load up your own! Enjoy.

I finally made it to the new location. It didn’t feel all that much bigger to me, but the one major improvement is that the store is organized far better. One long shelf of imports on one side with a long shelf of American brews on the other side of the aisle. Seems to be lacking on the Belgians, but very strong with English and other European brews. Run by a really nice guy. Definitely recommended.
One of my go-to places in the area. They have every single beer that they can get. No joke, if the distributor has some, so do these guys. Some of the bottles get a little dusty, but they are the biggest, baddest beer store in the area.
Very awesome selection here! Lots of stuff in the coolers, a mix-a-six selection and a huge selection of bombers and 750s. Good prices too. The seemed to have some stuff I can’t get in MA. If you are passing through CT on I-84, you need to stop and check this place out!

The best selection of beer I’ve seen in the state of Connecticut. Their beer guy knows his stuff.
Great store all around. Amazing selection for CT, helpful sales folks, and the "mix a six" from ANY beers in the store is fantastic- and the individual bottle prices are extremely reasonable and have very little (if any) markup from buying them as a 4 or 6pk.
I never miss an opportunity to stop by if I’m in the area
Pretty awesome beer store. They have a good selection of imports and domestic (and locals) brews. They have tons of beer so you are guaranteed to find something new. They have a small selection of glassware (although nothing special). Mix a 6 deal for ANY 12-oz beer. Pretty good pricing too, especially for Belgians (generally). The staff has always been quite helpful if you’re inquiring about a specific beer. Nothing too unique and they don’t seem to get new stuff (stuff they don’t already have) in that often, but like I said, there are so many bottles you are bound to find something. Check it out!
This is why I love Ratebeer! Great tip everybody. This place rocks. Great selection, including singles for the poor traveler, including a free, neat little carrying bag. Lots of regionalmpicks and amazing import aisle. Awesome.
One of the best places in connecticut, good american craft selections, german beers, lots of bombers, but very little belgian selection. Some rare gems show up but you can see the limitation of connecticut distributors.
