Overall good selection. Iíve ordered a few times through them and just about every time my order was shorted a few of the beers I ordered. They did fix the problem with a refund but I only found out once my order arrived at my house and checked my bank statement. There wasnít any email about a refund or what they didnít have enough of in stock. That is my only irritation with this place. There is also the fact that to get free shipping you have to order $100 of beer which is quite a bit of beer at a time. The beer isnít always fresh I received Sculpin which expired just a few days after I received it. On a brighter note selection, time to receive order and dependability as far as never having a problem at least most of my order this place has been a decent place for a good variety of brews.

Has the feel of a total wine/ bev mo type beer warehouse. They have a lot of quantity and some good clearance sales. Everything is arranged by nation which makes it easy to find things. But compared to a typical Total wiine they didnít have much I hadnít seen before. The German selection was surprisingly basic. They did have a lot of regional craft and the prices, as others have noted, are hit or miss. They also have 12 taps of craft for growler fills. Maybe itís the aesthetics of the place. It looks like if the Ontario version of the beer store had a showroom. It felt kind of soulless. But if you live in the Hudson Valley I canít imagine better being available.

this place has the ambiance of a grocery store, ínuff said. Service was friendly. Selection was very good, if you like Beligians. I donít like belgians so a whole isle was wasted for me. but they do have a pretty good selection of US micros, they were missing some key players (Dogfish head, Bellís, Three floyds, and hair of the dog to name a few.) The food was superb ...if you like chips and nuts.. I would not go back but it was worth the trip. If your in the area - its tough to beat.

Very good selection with alot of belgians. 7 beers on tap while I was there. Pricing was pretty good and there was a pretty good selection of glassware as well. I try to get up there once or twice every couple months.

First off, this place has GREAT potential; itís a nice place to shop at........new building, well lit, easy to walk around, friendly staff, good hours, etc. Some of the bottles were dusty though, which I think is a big no-no, but at least it let me know what was probably older stock. Prices, however, seemed to be very hit or miss, and although the selection was decent, a lot of brands were noticibly absent from the store. No Three Floyds, Ramstein, Southern Tier, Troegs, Cricket Hill, Clipper City, Flying Fish, Great Divide, Green Flash, etc.......oh, and while Iím nitpicking, growler fills seemed ridiculously high, and whoeverís doing the buying isnít a big enough IPA fan for my taste buds. In any case, itís an oasis for the area and worth the trip if you live within an hour or so. If not, thereís probably somewhere better, closer, and cheaper. I wouldnít call the place a let down by any means, but not as great as some of the rave reviews. Thereís my $0.02 worth.

This place has some of the best selections in the country. Slow delivery and high prices. One has to take the good with the bad.

I canít 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 canít get in NYC.

Got to this place 5 minutes before closing. I was only passing through so I could not return. After about 3 minutes the employee started an agressive campaign to usher me and another customer to the register. A bad experience. One good thing is that they had Great Lakes brewery products. Too bad I wasnt given another 10 minutes when I explained I was passing through from Arizona. Employee must have had a hot date.
