Conveniently located on Rte 1 just off I-95, a stone's throw from the Southport Brewing Co., this is really just a nice wine store with a small but surprisingly tight beer selection. I grabbed a bottle of the Cisco Brewers Moor Porter and an Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock yesterday. You can always get a full array of some American micros like Magic Hat, Brooklyn and Otter Creek, and there's a good collection of Belgians, British, German and Euro's otherwise, plus meads and lambics to be found here. Some nice finds here. Pricey, but not crazy pricey and a helpful staff in-the-know. This is the kind of store I like to hit infrequently on the off chance of finding something different that I won't see elsewhere, and I usually do.

I have been a relatively frequent customer at Harry's for 2 years. It is one of the top three in Fairfield in my opinion (Mo's and Whole Foods are the other two), although pricing seems much higher 20-30% on some of the special/hard to find brews.
-very good selection of regional and international brews
-Renzo (beer guy) seems knowledgable and willing to help or direct people
-The store usually gets at least a case of some of the harder to find special releases but sells out quick like anywhere else

Went to Harry's to buy some beer and wine before the Thanksgiving Holiday the other night. It was a very nice store located on the Post Road, in a bit of a strip mall looking area. I noticed that they do a craft beer tasting every Friday at the store. We had a lot of various family events going on, so I am unable to report on the quality of the tasting.
When I was searching for beer at Harry's I was pleasantly surprised to find Beer Advocate signs all over the place. Example, Harpoon IPA would have a sign in front that would say Beer Advocate A-, B, or what ever the rating was. Really impressed with that. If there wasn't a BA sign it had the Rate Beer rating.
Although the beer in the coolers wasn't as extensive as I had hoped, the individual bottles near the register was quite nice. Various Trappist Ales, German lagers, Italian micros, plus a nice selection of US crafts. Maybe, I wasn't overly wowed by the selection because they had been picked thin the day before Thanksgiving. All in all, I was happy with my experience at Harry's, and would definitely stop in again.

This is easy to get to from 95 but not worth your time unless you want to get taken advantage of. Mo's is much better and just as close from the highway (also on Post Rd). The selection is good, lots of Belgians and a reasonable choice of USA craft beers.
But anything considered good or difficult to get was priced at GOUGING prices. Black Ops was available for $29.99 (most expensive I've seen) and Imperial Stout Trooper was $19.99 ($5 more than Mo's). I called attention to these extreme prices and was told by the beer guy, one of the great douches of our time, that these were his last few. He made some lame jokes about rarity but truthfully he just hates beer geeks. He wasn't helpful in the least, couldn't care less about his customers. I absolutely recommend to AVOID THIS PLACE!

Located right along Route One in Fairfield, Connecticut is Harry`s Wine & Liquor which as noted earlier in the comments section here caters mostly to the market purchasing mid to high end priced wine... however they do have a better than average beer selection.
They carry quite a few selections from B. United, which is always nice as well as others from some of the other distributors. I picked up a bottle of Lindeman`s Gueze when I stopped here. I will most certainly stop by when in the area again.

Harry's is a relatively small liquor store located off post road between exit 21-22 off I-95. It primarily caters to wine enthusiasts, however it has nice beer selection tucked away in the middle of the store. It isn't a very large selection but a good selection at that. It has many of the American micros like dogfish head, victory, etc. It also has a good selection of belgium and belgian style beers like La Choufe, Allagash, Trappists Rocheford 8 &10, Unibroue, etc. German beers can also be found here as well such as Augistiner, Warsteiner, and Paulener.
The beer guy there is also quite knowledgable and often shares his recent tastings and favorites with you. The last time I went in with two of my friends, we maybe bought 20-30 dollars worth a beer each from the import section and he even threw in 3 free Sam Adam's glasses for our purchase.
Overall, it is a good little store that is worth stopping by if you are in the area or driving by. However, I would not travel far distances to get here with stores like Mo's Wine and Spirits right down the road.
