I believe the name is now "The Beer Store". For Middletown, it has a good selection...better than expected.

When you walk in, there are double sided shelves straigh ahead that hold the micros. Many are singles. Decent selection, including: Abita, Ommegang, chimay, Young's, Ithaca, Dogfish Head, Weihenstephaner, Schneider & Sons, etc.

There are fridges straight ahead [behind shelves] that have a decent selection. BMC cases, etc are to the right.

As stated, I was pleased with their selection and service. For Middletown, it was a pleasant surprise.

This place opened a few years ago and has been a pretty good place to stop for beer.

It is located in a very accessible location with plenty of parking.

Service is very good as I've never had to wait in line. The owners have always been responsive to customer requests and may make special orders although I've never done that myself.

There has always been a good selection of craft beers but recently I believe the place has changed hands and the craft beer section has gotten larger and is the focal point as you walk in the door.

Plenty of macro collections and kegs are available. Prices are reasonable and stock is never dusty.
