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.

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.

Stopped here on a whim and was impressed. The staff was very helpful. The place looked alittle beat up but the selection was very good. I donít think it had as much as Olivers but it definitely had more than most. Definitely worth stopping in.

Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon on a drive back from Montreal. Nice selection with a good variety of imports. Ended up picking up a few different ciders that I canít get by me. Worth a stop if youíre in the area.

This place is like the little brother of Oliverís Beverage on Colvin Ave in Albany, in that the selection isnít quite as good. I used to stop by here on the way home from work a few years back, and theyíve got a decent little selection. Nothing particularly amazing or difficult-to-find, but they certainly have a more diverse selection than most average bev centers. Itís worth a check.

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.

Read about this place on the website and since I was in the area, thought Iíd check it out. From the outside it is pretty un appealing. Looks like an old service station. Inside it is a warehouse atmosphere, but the selection is great and the staff friendly and helpful. They seemed to be "beer guys". They allow singles and they fill growlers which is unheard of where I live(NH). Prices were in line with anyplace else Iíve been. If your in the area, itís woth a stop.

Looks like a warehouse or garage. Thereís a wide selection which continues to improve, especially in the last few month. The staff has become more knowledgeable in my opinion. Also, they started selling growlers. They have a "New Releases" section for easy picking. In this area, it doesnít get any better.
