Very pleased with the store. It had more than I was looking for, although it is a little steep. But I suppose they have to cover rent.

Two Village Beer Merchants in the city; one in North Buffalo on Hertel, one downtown on elmwood. Both have similar selections, Elmwood being a bit bigger and well stocked. Good selection of Mikkeller/Evil Twin brews, along with a lot of good domestics. It’s usually likely you can score some rare stuff here, but expect to pay at least $1-$2 more than any other store. Employees are pretty nice. I’m glad it’s in town.

Worth a stop if it’s not far out of your way. I like the selection for the small size of the shop. The beer pricing can make the place seem a little too precious for its own good. I feel slightly uncertain about stock turnover and how long a pricey IPA may have been lingering at the store. But you can compare around other places... so perhaps make time to do that. I’ll be honest - when I look in at VBM I rarely buy beer given the competitive options. But curiosity brings me back, and VBM is a damn nice ’boutique’ option if lower Elmwood’s the way you’re passing through Buffalo. I guarantee you WILL get some nice beer.

Small bottle shop located near blue monk. Decent selection: nothing that can not be found elsewhere. Maybe a good bet for limited releases.

Unfortunately for them I stopped in after Prestige. Pretty good selection, ton of Great Divide stuff, but nothing truly exceptional, and essentially all of their stock was also sitting on the shelves at Prestige. Great place to go if you are in the area and need a beer fix, however. Also had a 20 tap growler fill station.

Decent selection. Comparable to Consumer Beverages in Niagara, but a little more expensive. Better selection of singles though which is great for tickers - lots of $2 beers to choose from. The girl even said she’d break up sixers if she had a lot of them. Saw a few good bottles of top beers, some Alesmiths and Great Divide especially. A decent amount of Belgian imports as well - some stuff I’ve never seen before. They also have a lot of Evil Twin and Mikkeller. I’ll be going back here for sure.

Nice selection on draft for growlers, with an ever expanding bottle selection make this a must stop in the city. Growler pricing averages about $2-3 higher than anywhere else. Same with bomber prices.

Small but packs a decent selection of rare and hard to find beers. The prices are a tad bit high but its a smaller buisness. Worker seemed pretty intelligable about beer. All in all a valuable store for beer geeks everywhere close.

Bit small place. Beer set up is not as well designed as one might hope. Pleasant service was provided. Prices are on higher end. Solid selection but Premier is much better.
