Stopped by here on the way back from visiting a friend in Connecticut and I'm damn sure glad I did. This is an excellent brewshop.

Got to this place quite easily, as it's a few turns off of exit 22 on I-95. Parking lot is a bit small, but there's always a space for your car. Once you get inside, it's obvious that wines make up a majority of this store, as about 90% of the floorspace is dedicated to it. Fortunately for the beer enthusiast, Mo's holds a very good selection of craft. Some are in the coolers just as you walk through the entrance and the rest of them are tucked away in a secluded corner in the back.

The craft beer section comprises of about four rows of shelves separated by country. There's a good selection of European brews to start, with the American offerings being right around the corner. The back wall holds the 12 oz bottle packs. There's also a mix-a-sixer display with a nice variety of single bottle offerings. Definitely a plus. Bottle age is good, with no expired labels to be found. Selection is great, with many different foreign (Corsendonk, Rochefort, Fantome, etc) and domestic (Rogue, Stone, Kona, New England Brewing) breweries represented, There were definitely a few beers here that I hadn't seen across the border in New York, so I was glad to have the opportunity to buy them.

Pricing is fair. Everything is priced reasonably and the single 12 oz bottles are only $1.89 each, so a careful eye can mean you come away with a great deal. The tax is also quite low, so you'll get more bang for your buck!

Service is top notch. The moment I stepped into the beer section, I was asked if I needed help finding anything. When I requested a specific beer, one of the guys went and got it for me. Everyone was pleasant and amicable, making my shopping experience very enjoyable.

This is a great place to shop for craft beer. Friendly staff, great selection, good pricing. Man, I just wish I lived closer, because I would definitely be a repeat customer.

I've been a weekly/bi-weekly Mo's beer customer for about 4 years and would put it in the top three as far as craft beer selection in fairfield. (other two being Whole Foods and Harry's)

Pros
-Prices reasonable and at the lower end of most craft beer stores
-Staff is incredibly friendly and always around to answer questions
-They have samplings which seem to be on Friday's
-They take back bottles that they sell for redmeption 0.05c which is nice because most machines don't accept craft beers or 22oz bottles

Cons
-Selection is okay, they have quite a bit of northeast brews with a decent selection of 22oz bottles but not usually a place to find 'hard to find beers' or limited production runs.... and if they do get those they usually limit them (understandable)
-parking lot a bit small and crowded

New to the area, and very happy I found Mo's. I really enjoyed this spot. Large selection of craft beers at very reasonable prices. Staff is very knowledgeable and they have great tastings on Fridays.

The only thing that drives me a bit crazy is the parking. If it is a peak alcohol purchase time, the parking lot is small and can get a bit crazy. Wish CT would allow brew thrus!

Solid selection of craft but make sure to get to the store quickly when your limited releases are available as they do sell out quickly. Lot's of craft beer available in the cold set so if you're thirsty and you like variety this is the place to go. Prices are competitive and they are friendly so if you don't see what you really like let them know and most likely they can get it for you.

This BeerMomma is one happy gal when I have a few moments to spare to go to Mo's. Most Fridays they have a beer tasting in the late afternoon/early evening. The staff is really knowledgeable about craft beers. Largest selection of micro/craft/seasonal brews in Fairfield, CT. I can always get my paws on some difficult to find brews. Their prices are reasonable too.

I don't buy my beer anywhere else. Why would I?

Mo's has been around ever since I was a few years short of the drinking age. When I finally was "enlightened" to craft beer, I realized that Mo's was the best spot in Fairfield to pick up craft beer.

The selection is solid, nothing extraordinary but very good. A good-sized beer section, especially since the store is a "wine-first". Prices are the best in the southern Fairfield-county, that I have seen

Nice selection, make-a-six pack, domestics and foreigns at a reasonable price. You can't ask for much more!

Easy to get to from I-95, about 2 minutes off the highway. The good news about this store is that the prices are cheap, much much cheaper than Harry's Wine & Liquor, on the same street, which gouges beer lovers with a hateful spite. The bad news is that the service kinda sucks. I called 2 days before I was gonna be in the area, asking if they had Imperial Stout Trooper. I was told "yes, but we don't hold bottles for people. It's first come first serve". That sounded fair, but when I showed up 2 days later I was told that they were holding them for customers who called the day before (1 day after I called!). BS!

The selection is pretty good, many of the New England selections are in coolers, the Belgian beers and majority of USA craft beers are in the rear right corner on shelves.

It was worth the short jump off the freeway to come here. It has an extensive selection of beer, including a nice selection of Bombers, and it had some unusual regional offerings that I can't find where I live, such as the short-lived Carlsons and the Butternuts line from New York. The wine selection looked good as well. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the ladies behind the main counter spent time entertaining my kids (and dispensing lollipops) while I shopped. I don't pass this way often, but next time I do, I will make a point to stop by again.
