I drive a long way to get here! Loyalty card and growlers available. Great selection fo all types from all over and well within reach for Canadian consumers.

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.

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.

The new location with the Growler machine is awesome and pretty up to to date on the website. For bottles, still the same selection as the old store pretty much, which is pretty darn good though, mix of local craft and international and Belgians as well.

Update: got a growler today $3.50 for the vessel, 20 beers to choose from including 120 min and oak aged yeit. Selction gets huge bump. Large store with two sides. One totally dedicated to wine and booze. The other is dedicated to beer, some gourmet food, and cooking impliments. this review focus just on beer selection. Everything I would expect of a quality beer store. Nothing terribly out of this world. Beers on tap. I did pick up a bomber of southern tier oak aged cuvee series 1. It has the selection of half time (look it up) but about 1/4 of the size. Prices were reasonable, even down right cheap. Maybe I am just used to the eastern NY BS.

Blows away anything I can get in Canada, but I found the ambiance hard to take, prices were a bit high. Selection was probably pretty solid for the area.

I drove over from Rochester to check this place out, and maybe pick up a few beer that Beers of the World never seems to have in stock. I was shocked by how small the beer section of the store was. Upon further examination, I found that even though the beer selection is small, it is still comparable to Beers of the World because Premier Gourmet does not carry a shitload of crappy foreign lagers. What they do carry, is very high class beers. I left a rating for the food because even though it’s not a restaurant, there is a shitload of good food there (grocery store style). I will be coming back when/if they ever get Cantillon back in stock.

Incredible selection of bottles. So many to choose from and so little time. Came home with 58 bottles of beer and cider from all over the world. It’s been a good day so far!

A very nice place to stop for beer in Buffalo just across the border. A nice selection of US, belgium and other brews. Staff, when you can find them, are knowledgeable and they usually get limited amount of hard to find brews. Great cheese selection and the pastries are also tasty. Fairly good value and the place to stop in to if you are in the city.

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.
