This is a pretty decent place. It's been around here a while. I've found a few different quality buys a few times, but nothing really spectacular. When it comes to service, these guys are very good (ask for Steve, he's got the long hair and knows his beer). If they don't have it, the will get it if they can. The selection, however, is pretty limited. They have an O.K craft selection as well as a small amount of imports, but it is lacking. It seems as if seasonals and special releases of beers that should be available in Connecticut are not here. All in all, though, a nice place to stop into if you're in the area and looking for good prices. But if you are and are looking for a good selection, go down the street to Wallingford Wine & Spirits. Usually have a very good glass selection around the holidays.

They have a nice selection, with fair prices. They go for personalized service here and keep a clean store.

Would be better if Vinny (owner) didn't hide beer in his office.

Randomly ended up here one afternoon on my way home from work. They have a small but strong craft section with pretty much all that can be expected in CT (Founders, Stone, DFH, Sixpoint, ect).

They are also trying to promote alot of CT breweries (Two Roads, City Steam, Thomas Hooker, Stoney Creek, ect)

They have a twitter feed that they release anything good as it comes in.

They seem to be pretty dedicated to getting craft beer on there shelves and I hope they continue to expand.
