Great selection for the area. It's slightly different than the other local shops in New London, Groton, and Ledyard, but it offers stuff that the others don't get (and vice versa).

Small-ish shop, mediocre atmosphere, nothing much to say there.

They get some of the best beers in the area, hands down. This last year, they had the best selection of BCBS variants, the most Flemish sours, and the largest stockpile of seasonals and limited releases (Sucks, Backwoods Bastard, Hoptimum, Narwhal, etc.).

Service has been pretty good and knowledgeable. Prices have been fine.

If you're in the SE CT area, this absolutely has to be one of the spots you check on a beer run.

Great Selection. Was surprised to see an entire wall and cooler devoted to craft brew. All the brands distributed to the area were available and not just the typical flag ship selection. Seasonal and barrel aged offerings etc. I picked up a four pack of SN Hoptimum double IPA (awesome) a bottle of Allagash Curieux (loved it) a 22 oz of Sculpin, bottle of DFH 75min IPA and a six of VBC Whirlwind Wit for the sunny day.
The gentleman that assisted me was in charge of the craft selections. Sorry I forgot his name but he is a member of BA and definitely enthusiastic about getting the best that is available to offer. It was great to have a similar selection that I'm accustomed to here in the Philadelphia area.

This is definitely the "go to"place in Mystic for craft beers & other alcohol beverages. I was very impressed with the good selection of Dogfish Head, Stone, and Allagash beers. I picked up some Chicory Stout, immediately, since I can't find that anywhere in Chicago. I also pick up a bottle of Wolrd Wide Stout, hard to find in the Midwest, and by far, the largest selection of Olde School Barley Wine I've ever seen. There were about 5, 4-packs available, wow! Atmosphere is a bit sterile, but the selection is pretty big for a place this small, and the quality is above average so they make up for the lack of decor. No food to choose from.

They also make a large selection of wines and spirits.

I stopped by this store and the guy running the section knows what he is talking about!! Everyone there was so helpful!!

They had limited edition stones, Dogfish, Rogue, Victory and it seems all the 6 packs that accompany them!! They had everything I was looking for and they said they could get other things if I had something specific in mind. A very unique mix here!

They said they get new things weekly and they always try and rotate things in to get the limited items that I didn't realize were even available!!!

The store was clean and the staff was helpful down to the cashier!!! I will defiantly come back!

This is a basic liquor store, mostly wine, liquor and macro beers, but they do have a probably ten foot section of shelving dedicated to craft beer with a decent (good for this area) selection of singles and six packs. Also there is an open refrigerator area with mostly larger craft breweries six packs and twelve packs and a four foot refrigerated section of craft singles.

basically an average liquor store who does devote some decent space to craft beer, which is better than the norm around here.
