I travel to Albany fairly often on business. Usually, I donít have much time to explore, but this trip I had a free evening to get out and headed over to Oliverís. The space is somewhat cavernous with three long rows of beers well organized on shelves that go basically from floor to ceiling all the way down the aisle. The selection of local upstate beers is excellent as is the selection of beers from northern New England. They sell singles of everything, and each six-pack of singles gets a $3 discount. Prices were reasonable and service was very good. Overall, this place is definitely worth stopping by and I will make it a point to visit more frequently.

Stopped in on the way back from a weekend trip to Montreal. Didnít 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.

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.

Iíve been in the Albany area many times but it took awhile for me to visit this place. Iím glad I finally did. The place is somewhat large, inside is nothing flashy but big rows of beer and beverages. Their beer selection is good, better than I expected. Singles available for anything you want. Prices are reasonable with a $3 discount per mixed six pack. I picked up a mixed sixer, a couple of Captain Lawrence Reserve IPAís (pleasantly surprised to find these!) and some Goose Island stuff. Next time Iím in the area Iíll make sure I go back.

They are starting to do a better job at using technology to communicate available products via Facebook primarily. They have definitely begun taking a decidedly different approach to how they stock and sort the store. Prices are touch and go, sometimes really good, sometimes spotty, but I have found the majority of their staff to be very friendly and appreciative of the patronage.

Ambiance is nothing special, just racks of beer (which appeals to me). Service is absolutely outstanding, very knowledgeable staff that always offer some friendly advice. Selection is very good - lots of 6 packs, single bottles, 22ozers, imports, variety packs. Value is not that great, especially for the domestic 12oz bottles. But hey, itís got the best selection of beers in the Albany area and the staff is excellent.

Since joining RB, this is one of those Northeastern shops I have wanted to visit and when I finally got there I discovered it was worth the wait. Easy to get to off I-90 with a left-right-and left turn into an unintrusive building with a small parking lot. But on the inside it is like entering a beer warehouse. The shelves are ten feet high and spread over 3-4 rows and fairly well organized. There is a single row of refrigerated beers. Price listings for case, six/four-pack, and singles are available on all brews. Great selection of New York and other Northeastern brews. They also boast a decent selection of California beers and Belgians. Most of the imports are the typical ones but there are the occasional surprises. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. It is 3 1/2 hours one-way for me but it is a nice reward for the long drive.

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.

A warehouse of beers that feels more like a large wine/liquor store than a beer store. This has the largest selection Iíve seen in the Albany area. An excellent spot.

Doesnít look like much from the outside...or the inside really. The selection is excellent. Almost everything you can get in upstate NY. Some rare stuff if you go in often enough to get it. But there are beers available downstate that donít make it up here.
The service is good. The guys know their stuff.
