Great selection and friendly staff. However quite bright lighting and have bought quite a few old and off bottles. Careful selection here is required. But a pretty solid retailer overall.

An excellent place overall for your beer buying needs. Premier has a huge selection of beers including many local choices. Food is high quality as well. Prices can be high for some but they make up for it by offering options other places do not have. Service is helpful.

This is one of my local stores, and itís pretty great. Ambiance: just average...not really much ambiance. Itís a big gourmet food store that just happens to have a huge beer selection. Service: pretty good, when you can find someone. Employees are always willing to go check the stockroom to see if they have something that isnít on the shelf. Selection: superb...huge local selection, huge US selection, huge foreign selection. Best selection among local placed by far. Food: well, it isnít a restaurant, but they have gourmet food, a nice deli with meats and cheeses, etc. Value: beer is average priced when compared to other local places. A great local place, overall.

A nondescript store in a strip mall, situated next to a different liquor store. At first I wondered if I was in the right place, but after passing by the party supplies, a very nice beer selection awaits in the back. Very nice American selection, solid stuff from Belgium, even had the Epic beers from New Zealand. Few things really stood out as being overly rare, but still impressive nonetheless. Service was the weak point at the store. I was asked if I needed any help, but otherwise the member of the staff that was near me acted as if talking with me for even a moment was a chore. Regardless, definitely worth stopping at.

A little unsure of how I feel about this place - good coverage of the region, some goodies from PA and the PNW, and some excellent imports, but prices are only average and the store is somewhat cavernous and under-utilized. Though it loses to some of my favorite stores on mind-boggling quality and selection, it also maintains a very high standard and Iíd be downright proud to have it as my local - so a big score. Next door does bring the mind-boggling selection on wine and spirits.

Went here with the girlfriend while visiting friends. As far as selection goes, they have a very wide variety of beers and right by a deli, who would of thought that? There service was pretty good as the guy I talked to, after going through a number of beers on a list, knew mostly if they had it in stock. I say mostly because he told me they had no mikellar black hole and it turned out they did(thank god I looked around a bit). These guys seemed to know what they were talking about. There food selection is pretty wide whether your looking for hot sauce, poultry, or any kind of gourmet food. Thereís about five shelves to walk down for most of the best micros and a few coolers housing the beers. If your not looking for beer they have a vast separate store for wine and spirits too. Overall this is one of the best stores around for everything beer in western NY hands down. There prices range from average to a little pricey though, but for the selection and quality its still very worth your while.

This place is great! An excellent selection of great beers, along with staff who really understand their beers. Iíve received great recommendations from the staff on several visits and havenít been disappointed yet. Especially good stock of American and Belgian brews. Most beers are available as singles and prices arenít bad. Definitely worth a visit.

Visit on a trip to western NY for a Weeding in June 09 - They carry several beers not available in my neck of the woods and most are available as singles so I was able to try several different brews because of this that a southern Illinois guy would probably never have the opportunity to enjoy - very clean store - I will definitely be back if I am ever in western NY again
