Stopped by on a 2 day trip just to try and grab some things I can't get around me on Long Island. The man working there knew a good amount about beer, and seemed very nice. When you first walk in, there are a few fridges that have cold single beers. Towards the back they have all kinds of craft brews and a refrigerated room to keep a lot of craft beers and regs (bud, coors, etc) cold. Also behind the counter there are some rare treats if you keep an eye out. It was a little disorganized, you really have to look through everything, even the wine section to find the beers you want. For example I found some Stillwaters in 3 different places.

All in all a good selection but they really need to work on their organization.

Great staff willing to help and give suggestions. Has turned into my go to spot. Nice sour selection. Gets as good a distribution as anyone in Hartford County. Yes small space and can be a little disorganized but you need to browse a little.

Found this spot by accident. Excellent spot for craft beer, with knowledgeable workers. Small and cozy.

Plenty of selection from all over, including a number of aged Belgians. Large Beer Cave: a walk-in cooler with plenty of chilled 12-packs and 6-packs of craft beer.

Definitely recommend hitting up this spot if you're in the Hartford area and looking for a place to buy some good beer.

Small place, kind of disorganized. Helpful friendly owner. Not a huge selection.

Down the road from the Half Door pub, Harvest Wine is a small and crowded booze store.

There are cases of beer and wine and bottles everywhere! Not very organized… I saw a bunch of dusty bombers, but the cooler with single bottles as you enter to your left across from the register is neat. Some good options there (I went for an Evil Twin barleywine).

Weyerbacher, Victory, Hebrew, Allagash, Southern Tier and Cambridge Brewing were among the brands I saw, but nothing rare or exceptional. They do have a shelf behind the register with awe-inspiring stuff like Utopias, but that is mostly for drooling purposes. Nice, super helpful guys. Give it a try, they deserve some business.
