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.

Visited August 7th 2016 at 10AM. Located in a huge warehouse 5 min from I-87 and 2 from I-90. Incredible selection of both americans and imports. They also have a reasonable ciders selection. Divided by brewery with a lot of rarities and OMG-I-will-spend-a-2-weeks-pay-here-s. They had a dozen of different FiftyFifty Eclipses, BA Firestones, weighty Bruerys and so many more. You can spend an hour in there and find something you didnít see the first time you passed by. Nobody came to me but I saw an employee with someone else. They gave me a rebate because I bought a dozen of bottles and this was nice. Small concern: they donít have air conditioning and a lot of bottles on shelves...
Typical NY State beer shelf warehouse ambiance. Service was minimal. Selection excellent. Overall value seemed fair. I really liked this storeís selection, so a bit surprised my score is not higher, but there really was very limited service on the day I was there and the ambiance (while typical) was unappealing.
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.

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.
