stupendous selection of all your gourmet needs...wether it be food or beer. bring your credit card, seems like the owner is trying to make a quick fortune. BUT, the selection can’t be beat.

Great store, and some of the best Lambic and Belgian selections around. The manager who runs the beer selection is also very knowledgeable and helpful. Some beers are cheaper elsewhere (like Consumers) but overall they are fair and they get a lot of stuff other stores don’t. I primarily go there when I need to stock up on some beer I can’t find anywhere else, but they also have great baked goods (Cannolis, Tiramisu for instance are outstanding) Lots of other meats, cheeses, dry gormet foods, etc.

THE place to go for exotic foods, coffee and craft beer in Buffalo. Growler selection is always top notch, plus they infuse CO2 into the container so it can keep longer before opening.

Thet have moved into their new location and it is better than it was before. Even though the beer sector is roughly the same as the previous location, but they now have a 20 tap growler fill station and a good sized walk in cooler.
A: The Gourmet shop has a nice atmosphere and the place is very clean. They also will feature a small cafe area which is nice because you grab some gourmet delicacies while there too.
Q: They have lots of different beers from different states and countries...plus get all of the rarities that come to the area.
S: Ethan and his team are very knowledgeable and will make great recommendations for any style you inquiry about. There is always someone there to talk ask questions.
S: Thee best selection in the Buffalo area..is doesnt even come close.
V: They are very reasonably priced compared to consumers or village beer merchant and is always the cheapest when it comes to rarities.
Overall, if you are from out of town and post a thread about what bottle shops to hit, this one is always at the top of everyones list. No Comparison.

Visited their new store. Excellent inventory, even go to go into their cold storage room. The addition of the growler filling station is a plus. Some sort of pressurized contraption for hands free filling of several growlers simultaneously. Prices and selection of taps is great; from $10 Founders IPA’s to $20 Celebrator doppelbocks to $33 Mikkelers.
I even joined their growler club.

Massive selection - truly impressive. Lots of obscure US micros, particularly stuff like Cooperstown Brewing and other NE brews. Service made an impression on me as a beer salesperson came over to me and offered me friendly advice and suggestions. It is possible that this store’s selection is better than Hi-Time’s, making Premier the best beer store in the U.S.

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.

Beer quite neatly arranged. Very good vintage selection and good regular selection. Tons of other gourmet quality foods. Clean, friendly, moderately expensive. Good customer service.

Awesome store. Great selection of micros, Trappistes, vintages, lambics, you name it. Very helpful staff, all beer geeks themselves. Free tastings on most Saturdays. Reasonably priced, and you can buy singles. I've spoken to people that have come from hundreds of miles away just for this store.

Premier Gourmet is a brilliant bottle store: great selection with lots of interesting, sometimes hard- to-find Belgian, English and U.S. micro beers. The service is excellent, and the salespeople, especially "the beer guys," know beer. However, Premier Gourmet is more than just a beer store. It is also a gourmet food store that has a capricious array of cheeses, coffee, hot sauces, meats, mustards, pastries, spices, and so much more. Next to the food and beer store (separate but in the same building) is Premier Liquor, a warehouse-size store that has an impressive selection of wines & liquors. All-in-all, a fantastic experience. I could literally spend a day in this store. Now, if Buffalo can support such a place, why can’t Toronto?
