The Brew Crew rules! Like Maharís...Oliverís makes living in Albany all the more bearable!
They have a great selection of micro-brews to choose from. The crew is friendly and always in a good mood. I usually hit them up on Fridayís straight from work because they sometimes have cases of bargain beers, dirt cheap.

How can you not LOVE Oliverís?! The staff is great, friendly, and [sometimes] knowledgeable. Their selection is the best in the area and among the best Iíve ever seen. The best part is that if you canít find a beer you want, they will order it for you Ė all you have to do is ask!

Love coming to Olivers. Great selection for what we get in NY. Beers are separated by region, with the US taking up most of the room. There is also a newer Cider section for ciders only. Love the create your own six pack. And they just added tons more selection this week, April 2014!!!

This place is excellent and itís a shame I didnít know about it when I lived in albany - Iím beating myself over the head , because itís better than anything I can get to now,for buying singles. Everything is available in singles and organized by state or country like a great beer library. The selection is downright wonderful, including some old stuff, and it seems ot be kept well. Lots of brewers represented, not a library of congress of beer but the best beverage store Iíve been to yet, and Iíve been to the best in philly, north delaware, and south jersey. The staff are indeed somewhat dumb kids, although the one girl who checked me out definitely respected what I was buying, and they were helpful while I was shopping. I even got a free glass thrown in for buying so much. I literally enjoyed the hell out of myself, my grirlfriend even let me go ahead and said nothing. In the end I bought 3 mixed sixes and two boxes full of bomber/750ís, and I could easily have doubled my purchase all with new beer I would be excited to try, save for luggage space in the car and finances. A definite must hit place if albany is anywhere near in your way, I regret not knowing about this
and mahars when I lived here for over 20 yrs. Stupendous and a place good enough that it will draw me to visit my parents in Albany whenevr the cellar gets a little thin.

Best place to get beer hands down. Has a great selection and the prices are pretty competitive. Itís like going to Mahars but not paying the mark up. There isnít much to the place, basically shelves with beer, but doesnít need much else.

Eye-opening selection of domestics and imports. Truly mind-boggling, compared to what we have in Vermont. For example, nice to find Sprecher and Lagunitas, many NY state micros, and also the full range from Weiherstephaner and other German brewers. John was helpful, and great to talk with. Super store.

Un classique depuis 2-3 ans. Ma rťserve secrŤte de Firestone special release et de 3 Fontenein. Les prix sont raisonnables et la variťtť de biŤres internationales vaut le dťtour ŗ elle seule.

Great place for bottle selection, rather hard to work with if you are looking for specialty kegs. Discounts on 6-packs are great, so are their end-of-season sales.

Sister store of Westmere Beverage, with essentially the same format, though the selection is a little bigger.
Great selection of deals and new inventory as soon as you walk in. A craft beer cooler on the left and a macro cooler on the other side with a huge selection.
Bottles are sorted by country and state. Great selection of breweries from around the world, though a lot of product tends to sit for a while.
Staff is pretty good most of the time. Theyíll help you out without hesitation. ask for Nico, heís the best.
Not a fan of the empties return process. They usually dig through your bags and boxes and fish out stuff thatís not technically returnable. Why so anal?
Otherwise no complaints. Itís a great store with a great selection. Usually busy no matter when you shop there, so expect lines at the counter.

I canít believe it took me so long to find this place. So good, great selection, fantastic variety; pretty much a little beer paradise in the middle of Albany.
