Iíve been to Oliverís before and this place is pretty much the same thing. Not much to look at inside or out with a mini warehouse setup but they make up for that with a pretty good beer selection. Theyíve got kegs and a growler station as well. The guy stocking the shelves offered me some assistance and the cashier was friendly too. My guess is this (or Oliverís) will have the best selection in the Albany area, probably getting most of whatís distributed in the area. They are starting to get Captain Lawrence on a more frequent basis, which is good. Singles are available of almost everything to purchase as well, a nice added bonus.

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.

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.

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.

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.
