figure i'd give this place an update.. since i was in the area and on the lookout for some bottles of Schneider Aventinus (came highly recommended and after reading the reviews here was totally on fire to try it)

doing an errand only a couple blocks away so i googled beer places in stamford and this popped up.

pretty big place, nice wine selection. beer in back. basically 2 rows of good stuff and one row of crap. most of the usual suspects.. Rogue, Dogfish (though some dogfish stuff you don't see very often), smuttynose, etc. however, there were a handful of things i hadn't seen before. i picked up a few bottles.

the staff knew nothing and couldn't help me on a wine i was trying to find...

one nice surprise, the tequila section was actually pretty impressive.

overall, i'd definitely check back here they had enough interesting brews to warrant popping in every now and then.

and, actually, they did have my Aventinus.. the whole reason i was stopping by (this is after going to 3 other places that hadn't heard of it). so, kudos to them for that!

In the last year, this place has gotten a lot better selection. The usually have the full line of Dogfish Head and Oskar Blues. I usually go to them to get craft beers for my keggerator because they seem to have better prices and availability. Just recently they started carrying the Stone line which is great. They also have a good selection of 750ml beers. The only issue I have is that they don't stock much in volume so you need to get there before your beer is sold out, especially the seasonal beers and the other issue is that they don't carry Cantillion Lambics.

Since no one has reviewed this place in 3 years, I'll give it a go, as I think it is better than the old reviews say.
Yes, the beer is still in the back behind the wine/liquor, but there are now 3 aisles of beer. They have a large selection of Eastern European beers, in addition to a decent section of Belgians, Germans, and a good selection of american craft brews. The domestics range from a good selection of New England breweries to some midwestern/west coast beers.
They have a good selection and are worth checking out.

Like alot of beverage joints in CT. this place has a ton of wine, up front and the beer is relagated to the rear. This place has the typical s*&^ load of macros, cases, twelvers etc and also a decent selection of micros, Brit. German, Czech, Polish etc etc, minimal Belgians, all the expected regionals, DFH, Allagash, Brooklyn, Sea dog etc. But no stone, Avery etc. This is worthwhile spot to pick up some decent brew, do not expect anything amazing or out of the ordinary. The staff was friendly enough and headed me towards a decent deli and helped me with directions to get back to the highway. (Rt. 95 is only about 3 mins away)

I would give this palce an above average for selection because it has a decent assortment of New England and NY Metro microbrews. Otherwise, no real finds or surprises in here. Import selection is OK but really limited to the export-lager style of the top brands of a country represented. Good in a pinch but nothing to go out of the way for, as I would go to Half Time, or Mountview if I have the time to make a trip. Inventory seems reasonable, plenty of cases tha look like recent deliveries around and the prices are OK.

I go here often because it's close to me, and they have a reasonably large selection including US micros and lots of bizarre-looking Eastern European lagers. You can find some Northeast goodies, and a bottle or two of some Russian beer you've never heard of. A smattering of English and Germans, and virtually no Belgians. Use extreme prejudice, some of the bottles have been sitting there for YEARS. A lot of the truly ancient stock has been removed but you'll still find, for instance, Pete's in the old bottles, or Hammer & Nail which I am loathe to see unsold but I think it really wouldn't taste very good at this point. Check to see if there's dust on the bottle. Lots of wines and too many malternatives. The real impressive part is the Eastern European beers - they really have a lot, which makes sense when you look at the neighborhood and the employees. This place and BevMax warehouse up the road are my local picks when I can't get to Terry Boyd's place up in Naugatuck, or ShireDave in Poughkeepsie.
