Sadly - Nowhere near the claimed ~500 bottles. Its closer to 200 and many of them are the more widely distributed Northern NY and big New England breweries. Truly sad. Especially since this bottleshop was mega-hyped for many years. They are living off their long-be-gone reputation. I was sold two VERY OLD bottles of Brasserie a Vapeur beers (8 years old / $8 each / 8% alcohol). I expect to be VERY VERY MAD with them upon consumption.

Non-impressive. Pretty empty beer store. They have mostly common stuff in bottles and a pretty limited supply of US Micros. They do have a few Belgians, but nothing to write home about. Staff ignored me when I was looking around. Probably the best bottle shop in town, but if you want good beer, you’re much better off going to the Blue Tusk.

The floor was mostly vacant, I thought the place had been robbed. They wont honor bottle deposits for beer bottles not bought there. If you found a beer to your liking, the chances are it wont be there when you return for more.

Definite stop if in the vicinity of Syracuse and in need of a cellar fill-up. Full of American micros, plenty of Belgians and English brews. Singles accepted, thankfully. Not quite to the standards of Half Time but being from import-less Canada, I cannot complain with this kind of quality selection. Must stop if you are in that region of NY state.
