Looks like a low ceiling warehouse at the total end of Albany. No air conditioning. Most beers are not kept in refrigerators either, but the place seemed rather full and I can hope that there’s a good stock rotation. I’d watch the date when buying low aging potential stuff still. Selection is huge, certainly much bigger than New Beers and bierkraft’s in NYC although it’s not the same quality. Upper NY (southern tier, middle ages, lake placid..) state breweries are better represented in Albany as well as a few rarer external breweries like Baltimore’s DeGroens. Prices are middle of the road between New Beers and bierkraft which makes them pretty decent and a neglectable factor. Very good all around selection. I wouldn’t expect much service though, you’d better know what you’re looking for. Not world-class, but definitely top echelon.

one of the better beer stores, wth lots of harder to get Cpt Lawrence, Alesmith, and UK in particular. COme during the daytime. Reasonable pices.

Very nice bottle selection, plenty of interesting American micros (Bear Republic, Victory, DFH, Smuttynose, Allagash, etc.) and a nice selection of Belgians and Eastern Europeans too. As CapFlu said, I was very impressed when the cashier ran out of the store while we were standing outside to see if he had overcharged me for a DFH Olde School. That was pretty impressive and reassuring. The best selection I have seen north of Half Time in Poughkeepsie.

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

Not very big but packed. Good selection of American beers although incomplete (missing the Stones, Hair of the Dog, Three Floyds and AleSmith among others). Selection of Belgian is average. German/others is ok. Place feels like a small warehouse and the staff is not very helpful. I bought for over $200 and got a $10 bomber free.

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.

Stopped in on the way back from a weekend trip to Montreal. Didn’t really get a lot of time in the store since apparently they close at 5 on Sundays. Nice bottle selection, a good variety of stuff including a nice section of ciders. Worth stopping in.

This place is pretty damned good. Decent supply of Micros and a formidable supply of Belgians. Prices are kinda steep. Didnt ask the staff any questions.

muzzlehatch  (297) Beloit, Wisconsin | April 26, 2004| Updated May 2, 2004
I actually didn’t find the prices to be out of line...much cheaper than Half Time for example. However, the selection doesn’t equal that store or many in MA/CT. Belgian selection ok, many interesting things but nothing truly rare...nice little group of E Euro porters, pils, etc. Oops, forgot about that bit with the cashier running out to fix his overcharge of Martin. That’s worth upgrading the service.

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.
