Typical NY State beer shelf warehouse ambiance. Service was minimal. Selection excellent. Overall value seemed fair. I really liked this store’s selection, so a bit surprised my score is not higher, but there really was very limited service on the day I was there and the ambiance (while typical) was unappealing.

I seem to stop here every time I visit or drive through Albany. Huge selection of local and regional brews, plus a lot of stuff we don’t get in Mass. Helpful staff. Prices seem OK.

Sister store of Westmere Beverage, with essentially the same format, though the selection is a little bigger.

Great selection of deals and new inventory as soon as you walk in. A craft beer cooler on the left and a macro cooler on the other side with a huge selection.

Bottles are sorted by country and state. Great selection of breweries from around the world, though a lot of product tends to sit for a while.

Staff is pretty good most of the time. They’ll help you out without hesitation. ask for Nico, he’s the best.

Not a fan of the empties return process. They usually dig through your bags and boxes and fish out stuff that’s not technically returnable. Why so anal?

Otherwise no complaints. It’s a great store with a great selection. Usually busy no matter when you shop there, so expect lines at the counter.

Love coming to Olivers. Great selection for what we get in NY. Beers are separated by region, with the US taking up most of the room. There is also a newer Cider section for ciders only. Love the create your own six pack. And they just added tons more selection this week, April 2014!!!

Un classique depuis 2-3 ans. Ma réserve secrète de Firestone special release et de 3 Fontenein. Les prix sont raisonnables et la variété de bières internationales vaut le détour à elle seule.

A wharehouse with lots of beer. Nice selection of upstate beers and some random other countries which is what I picked up. Nothing super exciting at least when I was there but staff was friendly and certainly worth a stop if u need supplies in A town.

stopped here after a recamondation of a friend. Large store with an ample amount of beers. Imports, and a good slection of beer from surrounding states and California. No whales, but not that I was expecting any. I got a mixed 6 of IPA’s from some New England states I have limited availabilty too plus a chilled magnium of Ommegand Art of Darkness. Prices were some what reasonable, if not a bit high. Update: have been able to find some great bruery beers, allagash including barrel aged beers... Increasing selection points.

This place has an awesome selection, especially if you’re from out of town. My only concern is that it’s more of less a warehouse that is subject to outside temperatures, in other words, expect everything in the place to be subject to high temps during the summer. I went in July, so I’m imagining a lot of what I bought probably suffered a bit from storage.

Great place for bottle selection, rather hard to work with if you are looking for specialty kegs. Discounts on 6-packs are great, so are their end-of-season sales.

Similar to the Westmere store. Solid selection with good growler station. Staff was relatively helpful. Store has a warehouse feel. Prices are competitive.
