Solid convenience type of store, probably could have been a tad cleaner. Saw a fair amount of adults with their kids. Lots of bottles here. Service seemed decent. Value seemed reasonable for that area of New York. I’d go back when in the area.
Stopped in after my faro disappointment hoping to salvage trip. Warehouse mostly with macro cases but a few isles of craft. Pretty decent selection and for area probably quite good. Nothing that really excited me though , but grabbed a few bottles of Jacks Abby, which is nice.
Aside from one other beverage center in the entire Cap District...This is the only place to buy beer. The selection is always growing, they even just added a large cider selection. Keep in mind, this is a beverage center, so there is plenty other products about. Of course, the big bastards take up most of the room, and by bastards I mean AB, Coors, Miller. In the back there is quite a decent selection of brews. One rack has domestics arranged geographically from west to east, left to right. Another has imports, again, arranged geographically from England to Asia...and oh, Cananda. Great place to stop by, and being that I live two minutes away, makes it even better.
Wasn't a craft beer fan until the staff started making suggestions. Now I'm hooked.
It's a very knowledgable staff and the guys are willing to help out whenever needed.
Glenville has an ever changing growler selection that make it work the trip too.
Love it there!
If you need beer in a growler, and you are in Glenville, this is a good stop. Prices are reasonable and selection is decent. Bottles I saw seemed a bit aged, even though they were popular brews. Good for that growler though!
A must-stop for me whenever I’m in the Glenville/Scotia/Schenectady area. The front has the feel of a convenience store, while the back has a really excellent selection of both American micros and British bombers. Lots of full cases, half cases (many in the cooler), sixers and one of the better "Choose your own six-pack" displays I’ve seen. They always have 5 or 6 beers on tap for growler fills. I’ve never been disappointed with their quality or their selection.

My hometown store, and it hasn’t let me down. Very convenient to drive a few minutes down the street and pick up a new brew whenever I want.
Just a short (couple of miles) out of my way driving home from work. Usually at least one new growler selection every Thursday. For me this is a great place. Mostly regional micro brews on tap. Worth a longer drive if you need to fill a couple of growlers for a party.
