Just remember, in new york you cant buy alcohol unless everyone you are with is 21 or older, this store enforces this to the max. They got a bunch of great beers, bought stone 10 10 10 here. worth a trip, it has a very nice selection of american brews not many imports, but the prices are decent they have taps for growlers, good times

Visited last May and on several other occasions too, this location consistently offers a good selection and good service at reasonable prices. Growlers are fresh, some of the bottles can be a little old but usually theyíre priced accordingly. Often times cheaper than Premier (eg. for 6-packs), sometimes more expensive (eg. for bombers), probably depends on how quickly they can turn it out. You can come across some real finds here, but mostly itís just a good selection of locally available bottles. Worth checking in.

Good enough bottle shop. Not much in the way of ambiance, it has a warehouse feel. Bottles are sometimes old & sometimes in direct sunlight from the windows. Still, you can often save a buck or two by shopping here rather than Premier. They finally take credit cards too.

Decent store. Prices tend to be on average cheaper then Premier Gourmet but there a lot fewer singles available as well. Staff is friendly and range in knowledgability from mediocre to pretty good. Good store overall, but I would hesitate to buy anything fragile that didnít have a readable expiry date - I have seen some Victory products well past their date.

Elmwood location in Kenmore. Newly redone. Theres a bunch of locations around the Buffalo area, some are good, some not so good. The selection is pretty solid, with some big name American micros (Stone, Avery, Anderson Brothers, Southern Tier, etc.) and some good imported stuff also. Fairly priced (5.99 average bomber). Staff at this location doesnít know much, but they are friendly. Consumerís seems like their trying to bring some better stuff to their stores. A few locations now have a respectable selection of beers on tap. Worth a stop in if your in the area.

Middle of the pack in regards to the Consumer franchises. A nice set of rotating taps for growler fills and a solid selection of bottles. Not as good as the better Consumers like Transit Rd. and Niagara Falls Blvd. but not their worst. Prices are often slightly better than Village Beer Merchant or Premier, but they lack the overall selection.

Stopped at the Elmwood location. They had a decent selection of New England and Midwest beers with some West coast stuff in there too. Prices seemed a little steep, but Iím not used to the NY prices. The one thing that kinda pissed me off about the place was the fact that they donít take credit/debt cards. Good thing I had $80 in cash on me. A decent place, but nothing compared to the Premier Gourmet when it comes to selection.

Pretty decent store. Just a couple minutes from Premier Gourmet which helps it and hurts it because they donít have as good of a selection, but they are generally cheaper than Premier. Growler fills are a big plus. This store has the ass backwards policy of not accepting credit, but has an ATM for you to pay the lovely service fees while you take your money out to pay for their beers. Thatís always been my main gripe. Otherwise, itís a pretty solid store thatís on par with the Niagara Falls and Orchard Park locations
