My homebase store. The selection here is very good, especially for Connecticut. They boast that they have the largest Belgian selection in CT. They also have a very large English, German and Eastern European selections, all separated into separate sections. Prices are very good (Allagash Interlude was $12) The best part about the store is that not only do they allow mixed sixers, but they encourage them ... there is a set of shelves set aside with nothing but singles, empty sixpack holders and a sign that says "Create your own sixpack"
One of my favorite places to shop. Quite a few local and regional brews and an amazing selection of Belgian and Belgian style ales. They have an excellent selection of bomber size beers from the USA and all over the world. Cooler is farily large and well stocked, but check out the warm beer selection too. Brews from Eastern Europe as well as just about everywhere else. Prices are very good and service is excellent.

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.
I first found this place from Troutbrooks website. Stripmall. Store itself is fine, Clean well organized. Had a nice sized selection. Good New England presence typical national crafts, with a few I hadn’t seen before.Sly Fox brewhouse for example. Always have had the Troutbrooks seasonals.Decent european too. Everyone should find something they like.Good store.
Stumbled upon this bottle shop in a somewhat abandoned plaza. This place has a ton of New England regionals as well and many other breweries sprinkled here and there. They seem to have a large selection of eastern european beers as well. I found a Morimoto Imperial Pils here, as well as the Thomas Hooker stuff. I have not been able to find these anywheres!-----these guys have expanded big time since my first entry. The ownership is really cool and they are always telling me what is new is coming. They have one of the best selections in the state (maybe after the place in Naugautuck).
