This store has changed quite a bit in the last few years. New owners transformed it from a typical old-school package store into a funky little beer and wine boutique. For this size of store, they have a very good selection of craft beers. There is a "Beer Cave" in the back that is well stocked with quality craft beers from around the world. It is not huge, but well represented with quality beers. They know what they're doing. The service is great. The music and atmosphere are cool, great vibe. If you are in the area, it is worth a visit.

I reviewed this store previously but felt the need to re-review it as the store has changed a bit.

Brian, a fellow BA, who manages the store has stepped it up a notch and took some back room storage and turned it into a really nice "Beer Cave". Being a smaller store the beer cave is an awesome idea to maximize the limited space he had to work with.

This is a small store in the center of Stratford. From the outside one would never know they had as good if not better selection of craft beer than some of the larger stores. The service is good and being a BA Brian naturally loves to talk beer. In CT, selection is not the best to begin with although it's getting better. What I like about Windsor is while they may not have every single possible beer available in CT they have brews that count. If that makes any sense. What I'm saying is their selection is quality not quantity. Brian seems to be working hard at making Windsor a great store and I'd say he's doing a good job!!!

Cheers!!!

This is a pretty standard package store. There is some parking out front. They only had the most minimal of craft beer selections. It took me less than thirty seconds to walk in and realize that I didn't need to shop there. There isn't anything wrong with the place, for all I know it might have a great selection of whiskey, but I went there looking for local beer and for that it was nearly useless. Even compared to the other sparse, sad options in the area this place isn't worth bothering with.
