Great selection of US beers, also from the west coast. Packed store. Saw some european bottles, like De Molen and bavarian stuff. Shame that I only have limited space for the next days.

pretty good selection in what looks to be an old gas station. Good service. Had some top notch beers like 120 minute dogfish and worldwide stout, avery, great selection of rare belgians and much more. A great find.

The widest variety in the Binghamton area makes this the default beer store. The Belgian selection has increased of late, but still lacking and unimaginative when it comes to German beers (never had an Altbier, ever). Well represented in regional craft beer but under-represented when it comes to the better national craft beers (no Russian River, New Belgium, etc).

Just off of 81 on Upper Front Street in Binghamton, NY. They have an excellent bottle and 6 pack selection. Locals, micros and internationals. No single 12oz though, only bombers. The place is tightly packed and a little hard to move around in. Prices are excellent! I don’t think you could find cheaper bottles or sixes at a grocery store. Clientelle is very varied. Students, beer geeks and townies. The guy buying Lord Chesterfield behind be stated, after seeing my purchase "You spent $54 dollars on a case of beer. You must got an expensive palate." It was actually 4 sixes and a four pack of Dogfish Palo Santo (for $14) but that should give you an idea of who shops there, the $54/case guy and the guy in the NASCAR hat.

I love this place, I also love the NY laws that allow you to purchase a bottle, 6-pack or case in the same place. Prices are great compared to PA and there is an excellent selection.

This is a good place that I frequent. They have a good selection of beers not available in my part of PA and is close enough for a day trip with a few buddies to pass the time. Recommended if you are in the Binghamton area!

Decent store. No 12oz singles and they won’t break 6-packs, but they have bombers of Middle Ages, Southern Tier, Smuttynose and others that I can’t find in DC/MD/PA. Worth a visit for the regional craft beer, though they do have some Belgians.

Stockpiles of beer everywhere. Eclectic collection: walked out with two Belgian specialties and case of PBR tall boys for Memorial Day. Good value.

I too disagree with the first rating (Sammy), and agree with JFURYCAT. The prices here are not bad, and they have a moderate to decent selection. Plus, they are probably the only real bottle shop in the area for miles----my guess is the next best places would be in Ithaca or Syracuse.
