Was recomended this place by a co worker who told me they do make your own 6 packs and have a big selection. The place is very clean and nice feel to it. If they do allow you to build your own 6 pack, it is not promoted. The selection is pretty good, but not amazing. They had all your standby craft names, plus some other extra stuff in the cooler. The cooler had a fair selection of bombers. I was able to find one hard to find beer that I had been looking for, that was extremely fresh, so that made me happy. Overall a pretty good experience. Not a destination but woudl stuff in if I am around the area.

Well the so thought World famous beer location is sure not the Wilton location. After being very unhappy with the Ridgefield store decided to review the Wilton store. It is just a small regular package store with the same rude employees that swarm you untill they see your there for beer. As for beer just a SMALL cooler with regular high priced beer nothing more. Asked this manager for a few brews and she barely gave me the time of day and was more worried about the store dog. Maybe they should be selling petfood. a real joke

The long awaited Wilton version of the Ridgefield landmark. Conveniently located in the Town Center. Smaller in size, but they've still managed to pack a great selection in the store.

75% of the area (if not more) is devoted to wine and spirits, but along the back is a great selection of brews. Sixers from all of the crafts you've come to expect - Sam, Otter, Victory, Anchor, Sierra, Cisco, New England, Dogfish, Allaghash, to name a few. Then a wall of import brews- the usual suspects, plus a few less common.

Then, one progressed inside the walk in cooler for a very nice selection of bombers and higher. Some interesting imports, Germans, Russians, and Belgians, just off the top of my head. Nice bunch of Rogues, plus other Americans.

If it isn't here, talk to the manager or take the short drive up to Ridgfield. All in all, its hard to walk away from Anconas without something you haven't had before.
