This is the best beer store in Rochester. It takes everything good about Beers of the World, removes the stupid stuff and then puts all the beer in massive walk in coolers. Great, honestly. This is my first stop if I’m looking for a beer I can’t get at Wegmans.

Literally just an unfinished warehouse with the barebones minimum - lots of shelves filled with beers and home brew equipment. There’s two cold rooms that store European/Belgians and another one for American. A lot of great stuff including Dieu du Ciel’s Peche Mortel and a regular supply of Bell’s Expedition Stout. The place also has about 30 taps for growler fills, all NY breweries. The place is unfortunately not very well located in Rochester as it is quite far of from the highway in an industrial area. But the staff are friendly and knowledgeable with all the beer properly stored. Also allows people to buy singles at $2-3 a bottle. Great shop and only wished they shipped in and out of state.

Pretty solid spot. Unassuming when you walk in, big open warehouse, but then you head into the coolers and they seem to go on forever in the back. Lots of singles, lots of bigger packs. Good mix of local, regional, national and some international beer. Service was fine, nice but not intrusive. Loved that 99pct of the beer is in cooler. Liked this place better than Beers of the World.

Very good selection with almost everything available in singles, which is nice if you want to try many different beers. Good value for the money.

Less stuff here than I’d have thought but decent prices and plenty of enthusiasm. Huge growler selection and will sell everything in a small size too. Nice Belgian section to go with the NY beer domination.

Big frig with most beers in there, unlike other places in town. Lots of local and NY brews, which is nice but then again some lack in quality. Good selection, good people, good prices. Possibly the best beer selection in Rochester now.

Stopped in here while visiting, at the suggestion of my brother-in-law. This is the anti Beers of the World; huge refrigerator with lots of upstate craft beers, but selection lacked stuff from outside the region. They made a big point of not keeping things behind the counter (a la BOTW). Very friendly service, but the selection wasn’t as good as I had hoped. Overall a pretty cool place.

AJ’s is a great new addition to the Rochester, NY beer scene. Biggest downside is they opened up so close to Beers of the World. Would have been nice if our bottleshop locations were a bit more diverse. The aspect of AJ’s that makes them particularly unique is their commitment to local beers. While their bottle selection pulls from all over the country and world, they have a particular focus on beers from this area, including many of the great breweries in the finger lakes region. The bottles aren’t the best part though, as they also feature something like 20 tap lines for growler fills. These are also incredibly focused on local beers. This makes them often the only place outside of the breweries themselves to get great finger lakes beers. Bring a growler, sample some beers, and take home some local goodness!

Looks a bit run down from the outside and nothing pretty inside. Decent selection of bottled beer, a good bit of which is refrigerated, but this isn’t BotW. Nice selection for growlers and "bombers" (half growlers, not 25 ounces). They say they’ll fill your own growler, plus the fact that you can get 32 ounces from the tap is nice. Prices are a bit steep. Still, a welcome addition.

Store just opened 11/25/2013. I stopped in a few days later. I was drawn there by them having a special New York state Beer section. I did find a couple there that I did not find at Beers of the World. The manager told me they want to get many of the NYS Micros in there. That would be a good niche for them, since they can’t match the USA and world variety that Beers can fit into their larger store. They do have a good selection of the most popular USA and World brands. Their 1st week they just had 12 of their taps going and I enjoyed several free samples.
