A big box store with style. Although large and cavernous, this is high end with a great selection of many different things. Service was pleasant and tried to be helpful. Selection is huge and I could spend lots of time and money here. They have a cafe, but I didn’t eat. Pricing is reasonable, make sure you get a value card for the special discounts. A great stop that I would happily frequent whenever I am in the area.

The best service I've ever seen in a beer store. They are great with geeks and newbies alike, and always bend over backwards to make folks from Toronto feel welcome when we come by. Wonderful selection of quality products, with a little crap thrown in for fun. The gourmet food store is just a nice bonus.

In a word, selection. Organized by Country or State are a half dozen aisles. Buying a bottle rather than a six-pack make it great for sampling. Gaining a profile for Canadians travelling through the USA from Niagra Falls/Toronto as its near the border. European selection. Update summer 2012: New store, more stock, easier to traverse the aisles, 20 taps of the latest coming into town.

Large warehouse with a great selection of coffee, cheese, deli meats and of course - beer. Good selection with a few things I hadn’t seen in NYC before. It’s a great spot - nice cheese selection as well.

My first stop after landing at Buffalo airport. Well worth the 15 minute drive. This place is clearly world class in many ways. Great selection of domestic and international beers, including several right from my wants list. Plus, although I did not really check it out, they fill growlers! Pretty impressive.

Parking friendly store well located in an ugly commercial part Buffalo. The beer section is actually rather small in square foot but is tightly packed and uses high shelves. You really get a surprisingly large selection for so few square foot. Not really pleasant to shop at because it is so tightly packed. Standard NY state selection but it doesn’t compare to the best eastern NY state stores like Half-Time and New Beer in NYC. Even Albany has a better selection. It’s unfortunate that the eastern NY state breweries (Captain Lawrence and friends) do not make it there. Solid American selection (no rarities), medium Belgian selection, non-belgian import selection (English, German, etc.) is sub-par but who cares. Probably the best western NY state beer store by default.

New location is bigger and a bit nicer than the old one, though more out of the way from the other Buffalo beer sites. Solid selection of American and European beers. We rarely leave here without spending more than originally planned. With some of the imports it would be nice if they started date stamping them upon arrival, particularly the hoppy stuff. Growler fill station is pretty cool, and I like that they will fill 1L growlers as well since full sized ones can be a but much. Prices are generally reasonable, though six packs and cases of more widely available stuff can sometimes be found cheaper at Consumers, or Wegmans.

Nice relaxing music, staff there to ask you if you need help, but not badgering, staff, especially Josh is extremely knowledgeable. Great selection of everything. Wish they had a little more of the west-coast stuff, though.

Don’t be a dumbass like me and walk into the wine store, there’s no beer there. Walk into the Deli and go all the way back. I was expecting a bigger selection, but what they do have is good. You can get singles and they carry lots of regional beers. Belgian selection was respectable also. I was able to pick up some Southern Tier Java, Middle Ages, Lost Cost, etc. Definitely worth a visit. Plus the store is cool. Lots of cheese, sauces, gourmet cookware and ingredients. Since I don’t live in Buffalo, it was all about the beer for me!

This specialty food and liquor store has an extensive range of beers from around the world, all of which are sorted by their country and, in the case of U.S. beers, state of origin. Walk through the doors, turn left, and head to the back where you’ll find hundreds of high quality craft brews. I grabbed a Tröegs Nugget Nectar, Anchor Old Foghorn Barley Wine, Oskar Blues G’Knight Imperial Red and Ten FIDY, St. Louis Gueuze Fond Tradition, Hitachino Nest XH and Commemorative Ale, Kona Pipeline Porter, and Duvel Triple Hop, among many others. Compared to Village Beer Merchant, the prices are cheaper (certain beers are $3-4 less per bottle), the selection is larger, and some of the stock - like the Oskar Blues stuff - is fresher here. Service was very good as the clerks seem to know a lot about the products they’re selling (coffee, meats, bulk food) and the cashier jammed all of my bombers into a single case in order to avoid problems at the border. We also stayed for lunch since the deli sells various gourmet soups, sandwiches, and entrees. Overall, Premier offers a pleasant and sophisticated shopping experience with the best beer selection in the city. A mandatory stop when you come to Buffalo.
