Crazy Bruces is a large place, which I like, and there are plenty of options here. Wide aisles and a shopping cart in hand, I came across a good spread of regional brewers such as Dogfish Head, Shipyard, Sam Adams.
12oz bottles are sold of course in 6 and 12 packs, along with decent section to mix your own six.
Great selection of macro brewers and liquors as well.
Convenient location, great parking, good prices and a friendly staff help make this place a must for anyone who lives in the Bristol/Farmington area.

Crazy Bruce's Liquors they have the bargains for you. Saw the commercials for this place on you tube a while ago and thought that Bruce was truly crazy. I didn't think that it was even real. My friends and I looked it and saw it was legit. We planned a road trip up there shortly after.

We got up there on a bright summer day and were pretty excited to look around and see just his crazy it was there. Overall it was impressive to see their selection of beers and liquor. Lots of room to move around and plenty to look at in there.

The beer aisle is where my friends and I did the most damage. We each came out of there with 6 packs of beer. We managed to pick up about 24 different kinds total. I found the mix and match area of the store was pretty nice. I expected that I was gonna buy some kind of liquor there before we walked in. Thankfully they had the beer section.

The prices weren't too bad here either. Just about everything was affordable. Overall the experience was fun, we were all hoping to get a picture with Bruce but we found out that he only does the commercials these days because other people own the stores. That was my only flaw with the place.

This is surprisingly the only place to go to pick up good beer if you're in Bristol. It's a huge, warehouse type store. A decent cooler space of six packs is found in the back, and warm six packs and singles are on the far right side. They do allow you to mix a six, which is nice.

The selection is better than most stores, but not excellent. Their selection of bombers is a bit small for the size of the store, and it seems like they are put in an area that can cause light struck beer. I haven't had any problems with freshness here, but I would watch out. They do mark downs on old beer. Sometimes, this can be a good score ($4 for a six pack of 4 month old Ipswitch Harvest) or make you wonder why the beer is still out there (2+ year old praying mantis porter, complete with floaties).

Service is neither good or bad, as you would expect with a big store. They do sell glassware, which is a plus. I found some great mini Chimay glasses that I've never seen. Prices are okay. Great if your buying cases of beer, but some of the bombers are overpriced.
