I always look for reviews from out of towners as I believe that locals tend to over hype places. I live outside of Buffalo so I am not a local.
The place looks like a mini mart from the outside and has a lot of BMC neon and BMC beer in the front windows. When you walk in, more than half the store is filled with craft beer. They have a better than average selection and it seems they get a mixed distribution of downstate and upstate distributors but donít really have any special or rare that I canít get back home. The guys working there were friendly and willing to answer questions. Their prices were mixed, some things high, some things were average. I would not return here myself and not because of service, selection, or price..because I can almost of the beer they carry at home.

Probably the best place upstate NY for us Quebecers to get some outstanding US and import brews. Beats Winooski Beverage Warehouse in VT hands down. Some bottles had a layer of dust on them however so I avoided those just in case (unless they were really high abv). Staff is helpful, but I didnít ask many questions. They pulled out a Dogfish 120min from under the counter outta the blue and simply said: "We also have this, if you want" after I brought for about 200$ of brews at the cash register! I was happy to oblige! Definately worth checking out, donít let the outside of the building fool you.

I am from the Detroit area, but stop in here when I am in the Albany area. They have a great section of beers I can't get back home like Alesmith, Firestone Walker etc. The staff is very helpful also. Worth checking out....

Visited for the first time, September 18, 2012. Wow! That is an ugly place and a little dirty, even the shopping carts are crusted. At least the selection is very good, especially the U.S. products, although the selection of imported beer is not spit at. Well divided by state and by country, it is quite easy to find what you are looking for, or at least if you do not know what you want to buy. The staff is very friendly and they are willing to help you if you ever need them. I would go back if Iím in Albany again!

Came here to grab a beer for the hotel room. Large selection sorted by country. Plenty of beer to tick. Lots of it seemed to be collecting dust so check freshness. Some 6 packs, bombers, and magnums in the cooler. Prices were fair.

Iíve been to Oliverís before and this place is pretty much the same thing. Not much to look at inside or out with a mini warehouse setup but they make up for that with a pretty good beer selection. Theyíve got kegs and a growler station as well. The guy stocking the shelves offered me some assistance and the cashier was friendly too. My guess is this (or Oliverís) will have the best selection in the Albany area, probably getting most of whatís distributed in the area. They are starting to get Captain Lawrence on a more frequent basis, which is good. Singles are available of almost everything to purchase as well, a nice added bonus.

Great place for kegs. Jeremy (manager) is always willing to work with you to help you get in the keg you want, and at a reasonable cost. Will usually price match if you find something cheaper elsewhere. Definitely worth a stop.

My regular place for bottles during my time in Schenectady. Best selection around in a warehouse type set up. They have a growler station that rotates fairly frequently. Staff was always helpful. Prices were relatively fair.

Nice place not too far from the airport. Good selection of American stuff, like Firestone Walker and Sixpoint, good foreign stuff and just okay on the Belgians, but the guy behind the counter knew his business and threw in a free glass on just a $60 purchase. Definitely worth the stop.
