the closest decent beer store to my house, so this requires me to review it.. not to mention a stone's throw from the spigot, the half door, and the wood n' tap. on the south corner of the intersection across from the shady falafel place... behind the auto repair shop

this place is run by the most eccentric white-bearded west hartford hillbilly types.. very quiet and stoic, yet always offering a brief comment on my beer choices. interior is a big empty square, populated minimally by wooden wine crates and some box stacks. register is at the front of the store, facing the door.. easy access for stick up men.

selection is limited to one shelf and one door of a cooler, but one can always find a tasty, fresh micro.. more often than not also an accidentally 'aged' gem. i can always count on the full line of ommegang beers, whatever is seasonal from brooklyn, and troutbrook stuff. sam adams has a showing here- as does dogfish, rogue, and some belgians like la chouffe, chimay, maredsous and delirium. my last visit yielded belgian-brewed ommegang abbey and 2004 brooklyn black chocolate 6er (dusty, but tasty!).

wouldn't go out of my way to hit it, but a worthy stop for locals and passersby.. especially to see what they'll put out that they've been 'aging' in the back room.
