One of the better stores I have visited. A typical large warehouse feel. Selection was top notch with a number of hard to find beers plus a few growlers to choose from. Staff was helpful and threw in some free glasses with my purchase. A must stop if you are in the area and not from NY.

Établissement visité le lundi 5 avril vers 11h. Ambiance: Grand magasin très propre et très ordonné dans son rangement. Service: Très serviable et aidant. Suggestion de quelques bières rares. Sélection: En voulez-vous de la bière en v’là. Je ne savais plus où donner de la tête. (149e rating d’établissement)

This place has a really good selection of beers. Pretty much every brand I was thinking would be available here was, in fact, available here. Prices weren’t anything special, but they were fine. There’s not a ton of ambiance, but everything is laid out nicely. If you are anywhere near here, this is a destination-level store.

Stopped off here after a long haul, and was pleasantly surprised by the spacious, well-lighted, and - especially - majestically well-stocked store. Not that I expected slim pickings, based on the reviews I’d read, but I’m saying it exceeded expectations. Picked up some Captain Lawrence and Ithaca goodies, and wish I could have packed more. Suffice it to say that all major US micros are represented, as well as a comprehensive selection of regionals. Really good Belgian selection too, with plenty Cantillon. Plus, I went next door to a sweet joint called Crews (mods, it’s back open - unretire it!) and had a great convo with Matt the manager of Half Time. Awesome, and I will assuredly be back.

Out of all the great things my gilfriend has done for me, one of them was to introduce me to Halftime. I am from NYC and she is from Poughkeepsie. So about 2 years ago I went up to meet her family and we drove to a couple of distributors that were disappointing. Then she took me here and I was amazed. It is a supermarket for beer. Over the years my enthusiasm has subsided becuase I have found a few other similar places (New Beer in NYC) but this was a first. As everyone said they have a lot of everything. Numerous micros, more belgians (dont get your hopes up no Westy’s) then I have seem anywhere, same with German beers., and even macros if you’re into that stuff. The prices are steep for some of the bottles, not all. The taps are all overpriced, but they do get rare kegs. The staff are all great, many of them know their beers, they do not bother you, and the owner just loves to talk about beer. Very clean, gift baskets, free coasters, once in a while they throw in free glasses. Ok thats enough, go there and see.

We came here to stock up the RV before our Roadtrip BQ2010. Very nice selection for a Beer Store - has to be one of the best (especially in the area).

Massive selection - you'll need a beta-blocker to keep from getting your heart rate too elevated. Lots of bombers, 750ml and Euro exotics. Aisles and aisles of good stuff. Prices are acceptable. I went around 2/03, and don't remember more than about 600 different bottles, so things might have changed since then.

Came here in 2005 or 2006 while on a crazy trip (we snorted some mali on the way, don’t ask) with hopistotle420, the man who introduced me to cantillon and ratebeer. Incrediblely large selection, isles upon isles of BEER and I remember a growler filling station as well. Remember getting some good Southampton stuff here along with many others.

By far, this place has the largest selection of beers i have ever seen. They are meticulously arranged by country in diagonal rows. I found some styles I’ve been seeking for awhile, and found some sleepers in the fridge. They threw in 3 drafts for free. Great place, and worth the trip if you are within 3 hours away.
