Cramped little convenience store. Once you get past the dog sleeping on the doorstep, you’re greeted by a cooler with a decent selection of somewhat fresh well-priced bombers and sixers. A lot of dusty bottles on the shelves. Great selection but mostly sold in six-packs. Not a bad spot.

When I visited: Late September 2013.
What I bought: A mixed case of Great Lakes Oktoberfest, Southern Tier Harvest Ale, Sierra Nevada Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale, and Southern Tier 2XRye.
What I liked: Decent mix of the better-known U.S. crafters, many refrigerated sixers available, very good prices (bordering on cheap), the beers that I grabbed were reasonably fresh.
What I disliked: Several dated, warm bombers and singles lying around, selection is limited because the store is so tiny, cashier wasn’t that friendly.
Would I go back? Hard to say. I was fairly happy with my haul but Premier Gourmet is on the way home and has a much larger and more interesting selection than this place.
Overall Rating: 74

This market surely fits the old addage of not judging a book by its cover. When I pulled up to the place (which I almost missed), it appears like an old corner store delicatessan (and probably once was). The place is very small on the inside and there are only 4 aisles but half of the store is dedicated to craft beers. My first impression was ’Wow, this guy cramed a lot of product into this small space’ and he has an impressive collection of 4 and 6 packs from different brewers across the US and a good amount of bombers too (both refrigerated and on shelf). I didn’t see anything that was rare or hard to find but for the most part, a great little neighborhood craft brew mart. If in the area again, i’d stop in again. I will given this place one huge shout out on their prices, they were very reasonable and seemed to be cheaper than most places.

Stopped early on a Sunday morning (It was open, off to a good start). The lady there was helpful in meeting my requests, the selection was good with just about every must have for a beer store. Broad selection, nothing special but tons of good stuff.. Storage appears to be a problem though, the place is cramped, so it is prone to nooks and crannies full of old beer. Had to check all the dates and found quite a few expired 6-packs. The cooler is a decent size though, and there is fresh beer in there. Prices were quite reasonable, I’d definitely go back if I was looking for beer in Syracuse.

Holy moley! This is the best beer store in Syracuse! Again, its difficult to see this would be a great beer store, but once our in, wow! Better beer selection than PS, better prices, some rareties. You cant break 6-packs though, however, they do have a mix and match selection (not great). I shall be back!!!!

A weirdly charming little convenience store that has jacked up its beer selection exponentially in the last year or so. You can’t get individual 12oz bottles, but you can get lots of six packs and 22oz beers. You would never think it by driving by, but lots of treasures can be found in this little Tipperary Hill location. They have actually stepped it up over the last few years, expanding their beer selection. This is probably THE place in Syracuse to get a selection of good, craft 22oz bottles.

This place is even more cramped then Galeville grocery but I prefer this place. They have decent selection of Lagunitas, Southern Tier, Stone, DFH, Victory, Brooklyn, Oskar Blues, sometimes Allagash. A few singles but they were mostly old sumer witbiers and stuff. Not a good spot for singles. Bombers were ok. I hate to say it, but I still think Party Source has best selection in Syracuse.

I think Brillbeck’s has the best dselection of bottled beer in the Syracuse, NY area. Only Party Source and Galeville Grocery could match the selection.

I was looking for something convenient near downtown Syracuse, so checked this out based on the one rating. You won’t walk out of here emptyhanded, and the prices are quite reasonable, but don’t expect service, knowledge, single bottles, carrying the bottles out, or tremendous selection. Having aid that you can get all the locals, a few Belgiums, a few Germans, and some Luginitas. It was a plus to have several inside or outside the cooler. Cute cashier. Not top 3 beer stores in the area-but could be number 4.
