Not as good a selection as Oliverís in Albany. Service was downright unfriendly and not helpful. But if you can manage the aisles yourself, youíll find a pretty solid selection of craft brews, including a fair amount of micros in the fridge. Prices on 6 packs are very reasonable, little cheaper than Oliverís. Good place to go for good beer, and definitely the best that close to downtown.

A typical small town package store with a decent selection of local brews. If you have a chance to hit Albany when in the area, this place can be skipped altogether.

I was in town for a conference & checked the place out. A good enough selection with the likes of Dogfish, Lake Placid, Mendocino, Unibroue, Smuttynose, Moylans, Stone, etc. Lots of good stuff, but nothing rare. There were two growler fill stations (one was Stone IPA, I forget the other.) Some bottles were in direct sunlight. Homebrew stuff was available but I didnít look too closely.

As was said, very near to the Olde Saratoga (Mendocino) brewery. Good selection, but itís hot as hell in there which canít be good for the beer. Prices a bit inflated. Found some Unibroues that I canít get in my own town. Prices on Ommegang products are ridiculous.. Props for the homebrew product.

This beer store is virtually across the street from the Saratoga/Mendocino/Brewery/etc. They have a decent selection of most of the common local stuff and harder to find stuff brewed across the street. They have a good selection of NY craft beers as well as a few intriguing european and belgian beers. I saw a couple Cantillons on the shelves and a bottle of Utopia that they were asking $200 for!!!!! I found the prices a bit inflated. They also have a small wall devoted to homebrewing with grains, extracts, and some hops. This is a cool place and definitiely worth the stop after you hit the brewery across the street.
