Wasn't a craft beer fan until the staff started making suggestions. Now I'm hooked. It's a very knowledgable staff and the guys are willing to help out whenever needed. Glenville has an ever changing growler selection that make it work the trip too. Love it there!

If you need beer in a growler, and you are in Glenville, this is a good stop. Prices are reasonable and selection is decent. Bottles I saw seemed a bit aged, even though they were popular brews. Good for that growler though!

A convenience store that has a decent selection. Growler station that rotates occasionally. Never asked for help, but the employees were always helpful. Solid price point.

Has a great selection and it was in my childhood stomping grounds. The staff was friendly enough and really the only place in the area to get some decent beer outside a grocery store.

A must-stop for me whenever Iím in the Glenville/Scotia/Schenectady area. The front has the feel of a convenience store, while the back has a really excellent selection of both American micros and British bombers. Lots of full cases, half cases (many in the cooler), sixers and one of the better "Choose your own six-pack" displays Iíve seen. They always have 5 or 6 beers on tap for growler fills. Iíve never been disappointed with their quality or their selection.

My hometown store, and it hasnít let me down. Very convenient to drive a few minutes down the street and pick up a new brew whenever I want.

Just a short (couple of miles) out of my way driving home from work. Usually at least one new growler selection every Thursday. For me this is a great place. Mostly regional micro brews on tap. Worth a longer drive if you need to fill a couple of growlers for a party.

A lot of local stuff. For someone coming from Canada, there is so many beers that we cannot find up here, but its especially est coast beer but there are a few good imports: Rochefort, Corsendonk, Westmalle, Orval,Chouffe, Traquair, Thomas Hardy... Fair prices.

Not sure why this gets the nod over Olivers on the brewtour. I went out of my way to go here (and this store is not convenient to get to if in Albany unlike the other bottleshop mentioned). While they stock many locals and regionals, their import section is lackluster and their staff seem to know even less about beer than they do at Olivers.

This is a nice sized, well stocked and varied beverage center for the tri city area. They have growlers, usually 6 or 7 at a time, with some pretty impressive selections. They are also pretty informed and are very willing to help over the phone.
