somewhat of a biased review. as much as i hate the chains....this is my go to store as it's the closest to my house. if you're not a local and you're the type that avoids chatting w/ the staff entirely this will not be your place. but you may get lucky. they'll straight up save the goods for the regulars, which many hate, but i do respect to an extent. overly friendly and very knowledgeable staff. selection has been getting better over the past few years (need more sours). why i like so much...i walk in, make eye contact w/ the staff and immediately they either say "have you tried this?" or "i've got something for you!". love this regular staff! the m&r in south windsor is full of pompous pricks.

M and R is a chain of sorts. Each can have different experiences.

They will have the usual craft suspects... Stone, two roads, founders, six point, nebco, Oskar blues, goose island, DFH, etc... And A few Belgians

This one is good but.... if you're from out of town you might as well go to Manchester Beer and Wine down the street.

Just bought some UFO Harpoons there today, got them home, loaded them into the fridge and broke down the box. Had my first beer and it was GROSS, tasted skunked. Found out it was expired, so I called M&R and asked if I could exchange them. The lady that answered said "Whatever you do, do it fast we close in 10 minutes". So I raced back to be greeted with an attitude. The same lady told me (with the manager at her elbow) that she didn't want to open another case of the same beer because those might be expired too. Soooo.. you don't want to open another case because A) if its expired I won't want it and some other customer might not buy the expired beer and you'd lose money. Or B) its not expired and I bring it home... classy. I picked another case of beers that was less money, but didn't get the money owed to me. Never going back. Not to mention the dates should be printed on the box as well as the bottles so this doesn't have to happen again.

M&R is a huge store that specializes in wine specifically, but also has a great selection of beers and liquors. They're a chain in the state with 6 stores, so they often can get hard-to-find items that other stores in the state cannot. Ask any of the managers for help picking something, and they'll be happy to share their knowledge with you.

Prices are reasonable, staff is very friendly, selection is great and if they don't have it, they will try to get it for you. Overall, a great place to shop and find great beer.
