Real good beer stores are hard to find in Connecticut. This site is located just off the Merritt Parkway at the foot of the West Rock Tunnel.
A big aisle of American micros, healthy on New England and Mid-Atlantic regionals (Dogfish Head, Victory, Brooklyn, Smuttynose, Magic Hat, Otter Creek, Cisco Brewers, Harpoon, Allegash, Sea Dog, Gritty's, Atlantic brewing Co. and on and on) and then the import, imports, imports. A good Belgian collection and Gremans, English, all that.
It's a 4 on quality because they have some questionably dated beers. There's a shopping cart wagon with singles that you need to avoid. But the selection's good all around.
The selection used to be bigger but they've consolidated the american micros and squoze them into a smaller area to make room for malternatives and the like but I'm still very happy having recently scored a bunch of 22 ounce Magic Hat Ravell's (with which I will ruuule the world).
And just yesterday, I found one Magic Hat HI.P.A. on the shelf. Well I wanted more. They opened up every Magic Hat bomber box they had stacked up and then hunted around out back. Having come up empty, they made a call to the other store in Hamden and put a bunch of them on hold for me. Now that's service!!

The selection is awesome here no doubt, BUT the attitude staff gives off left a sour taste in my mouth lately. I was always a regular here but lately it seems everything on the shelf is ridiculous out of date. Its a shame for those said reasons I have stopped shopping here, I know I am not the first person here to feel the same way. I found several six packs of certain IPAs that were over a year old, that is just not called for

Definitely the best selection in the area for beer/cider/mead. A solid stock of excellent imports and sours. Hard to get bottles are still hard to get as the traffic here is heavy and things tend to sell out quick.
