Love the new selections in on a weekly basis. The $3 off on a mixed 6 pack is great and the selection of beers available is certainly the best in the Albany area. The staff has been incredibly helpful every time Iíve been in and they have made a huge effort to track down craft beer selections that are usually unavailable to this part of the country.

Great place for kegs. Jeremy (manager) is always willing to work with you to help you get in the keg you want, and at a reasonable cost. Will usually price match if you find something cheaper elsewhere. Definitely worth a stop.

A most excellent beer garden right off the highway in Albany. Selection is actually quite good; all brews are separated by region brewed, making it easy for me to make a beeline to the Belgian quad section, or the west coast hop-bomb area. Righteous. Staff is knowledgeable and kind. I even scored a couple free glasses. Theres some real gems here if you look hard enough.

Another solid beer stop. Almost mind-boggling, largely because the store is a little disorganized. I love the flat $3 off a mixed six pack, that really works for me. Lots of selection in both imports and regional micros. I thought the national micro selection was a little thin, but Iím okay with that. This is where Iíll be stopping on my trips to the Adirondacks.

Visited in February 2010: A beer Mecca in Albany. Great selection of beers from across the world. Deep selection with broad choices from many breweries. Great place to find many lambics, a tough find in upstate. Prices were reasonable and the service was great, I think I was approached 3 times in about 30 minutes to make sure that I was finding everything.

Nice place not too far from the airport. Good selection of American stuff, like Firestone Walker and Sixpoint, good foreign stuff and just okay on the Belgians, but the guy behind the counter knew his business and threw in a free glass on just a $60 purchase. Definitely worth the stop.

My regular place for bottles during my time in Schenectady. Best selection around in a warehouse type set up. They have a growler station that rotates fairly frequently. Staff was always helpful. Prices were relatively fair.

Just happened to go into this store to buy a couple of bags of ice and perhaps some session beer- and what a find! At least three long aisles full of craft beer. Tons of 22ís, six packs, a huge belgian and import aisle. You can buy singles of anything they have in 12 oz bottles. They had some stuff there than I havenít seen anywhere else in quite a while: Captain Lawrence NoríEaster, Xtra Gold (2006), as well as their Dubbel. Some heavyweight also on the shelves. Ambiance is typical beverage distributor warehouse. Staff knowledge and service was adequate to above average. I would definitely recommend this store to anyone traveling through Albany. the only con I noticed is that some of the bottles are quite dusty and may be past their prime, especially IPAís. I should note that this is the sister store of Oliverís (brew crew).

I am from the Detroit area, but stop in here when I am in the Albany area. They have a great section of beers I can't get back home like Alesmith, Firestone Walker etc. The staff is very helpful also. Worth checking out....
