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.

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!!!

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.

A wharehouse with lots of beer. Nice selection of upstate beers and some random other countries which is what I picked up. Nothing super exciting at least when I was there but staff was friendly and certainly worth a stop if u need supplies in A town.

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 IPAís 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.

This place has an awesome selection, especially if youíre from out of town. My only concern is that itís more of less a warehouse that is subject to outside temperatures, in other words, expect everything in the place to be subject to high temps during the summer. I went in July, so Iím imagining a lot of what I bought probably suffered a bit from storage.

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.

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

I was passing through from lake placid. The employeeís there didnít know anything about beer and were rude.The place was also dirty and expensive. The selection was pretty good, you can tell that someone there knows what they are doing. Too bad I didnít talk to them, everyone i talked to (3 employees) were completely retarded. I couldnít even get a recommendation for a local breweries beer. Perfect example of why selection isnt everything. Oh, they are on the expensive side too.

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.
