I can’t see what the big deal is about this place, unless you live in the area. I drove 2+ hours to see what all of the fuss was. Regular selection without anything I can’t get in NYC.

This place lived up to all the hype. Had a great selection and the prices were very fair as well. I personally believe this place is better than Premier Gourmet in Buffalo. Beers of the World in Rochester, probably has a better selection of European stuff. Beers of the world doesnt have the knowledgeable or friendly staff, though. The Owner was awesome.

this is my place, i love halftime. they have everything and many good beers on tap to sample in a 10 oz bottle or a growler. Many US Micros and everything else. the GREATEST thing about it is you can mix and match any beer you want to make custom six packs. Awesome place . the employees are very helpful and knowelegable. Best place ive been to. mabey if you are lucky you will see me and spkldhenlvr24 wandering around in awe.

Awesome store. Best way to describe it is a grocery store of beer. Tons of US micros, a lot of Rogue, DogFish, plenty more. You’ll most likely walk around for 20 minutes looking at everything possible. Some great beers on tap with different size growlers. Great selection of glassware. Rate-Beer shelftags come in common. The owner knows ALOT about good beer, and is very willing to help. Worth a stop if your anywhere near it. I’d say the best in US, although I haven’t been to Buffalo yet.

Extensive selection of German, Belgian, English and American Micros as well as growler fills, glassware and soda and macros too. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable. Lots of parking too.

A great place. Unbelieveable selection of american microbrews, belgians and german brews (there is more varity in the german shelf than I ever saw in a store in Germany. A wide selection of other foreign beers. Now new with shelftags from ratebeer - which helped with making decisions what to buy - it is just so overwhelming. Super nice selection of Beers on tap which varies nearly every week. The staff knows its business and every single one is very helpfull. I even got a great bottle of Dogfish Head Raison D’Extra presented what was really nice. Therefor and the great selection I have to come back and bring a rare German beer they don’t have - it will be tough!

Phenomenal selection, coming from Ann Arbor out to school in Poughkeepsie, there simply was no place to with even a decent range of beers. I've been in heaven since Half Time opened. It has one of the widest arrays of beer I've come across and the staff, particularly the owner, are some of the most well-informed I've ever known.

This place has improved MASSIVELY in the 9 months since I first visited. Then, it was merely "among the best" in New England; now, I echo Martin and proclaim it the tops. The owner & managers are as much beer geeks as you and I (we had a nice 3 way conversation about the merits of DFH120), the selection growing & growing, and if you buy a lot and show your enthusiasm (or the distance you travelled) they’ll throw in a bunch of glasses -- cheap maybe but a nice gesture -- and this time, I got my growler of Snowblower on the house as well. 11 different Cantillons in stock last week, including all 3 Lou Pepes and St. Lamvinus. Need I say more? *** adding a food rating for "Brew" a restaurant next door with nice cheap but reasonably classy eats and 60+ bottles and taps from the Half Time selection. ** oh, and Half Time just had Southampton stuff, too!

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.
