This place has a really good selection of beers. Pretty much every brand I was thinking would be available here was, in fact, available here. Prices weren’t anything special, but they were fine. There’s not a ton of ambiance, but everything is laid out nicely. If you are anywhere near here, this is a destination-level store.

Firstly: this is probably the most well-organized, cleanly, geek-friendly beer store I have ever seen. Secondly: if you live in the NYC metro area and have access to stores like New Beer and American Beer, you probably won’t orgasm in your pants upon walking into this store, as others have. However, you will find enough, in my opinion, to justify the trek upstate. They have a handful of belgian imports I’ve actually never seen in the NY area stores, and they have a wider selection of New England micros (especially Cisco, which is a big plus for me). The prices are reasonable, and the staff is more friendly and beer-educated than I’ve seen in any other store...anywhere. In short, don’t believe the hype, but certainly make the trip.

To sum up the review: THIS PLACE IS FREAKIN’ AWESOME!!! Large warehouse located on RT 9, south of "downtown" Poughkeepsie. Large sellection of beer from all over the world, BMCs, Micros, Imports from almost every corner of the globe. If you name a brewer, I will bet they carry at least one offering from them. They also carry about 6 beers on draft and will fill growlers. Service was excelent prices were decent, these people know their beer. Definatly going back despite the long drive.

Very large beer only store. Huge selection but nothing extremely rare. Can break any sixer which is awesome. Cool growler station. Definitely worth a trip. Did not have as big of selection of Captain Lawrence or Ithica as I was hoping for. Awesome store none the less.

This place lived up to all the hype. Had a great selection and the prices were very fair as well. I personally believe this place is better than Premier Gourmet in Buffalo. Beers of the World in Rochester, probably has a better selection of European stuff. Beers of the world doesnt have the knowledgeable or friendly staff, though. The Owner was awesome.

This place has improved MASSIVELY in the 9 months since I first visited. Then, it was merely "among the best" in New England; now, I echo Martin and proclaim it the tops. The owner & managers are as much beer geeks as you and I (we had a nice 3 way conversation about the merits of DFH120), the selection growing & growing, and if you buy a lot and show your enthusiasm (or the distance you travelled) they’ll throw in a bunch of glasses -- cheap maybe but a nice gesture -- and this time, I got my growler of Snowblower on the house as well. 11 different Cantillons in stock last week, including all 3 Lou Pepes and St. Lamvinus. Need I say more? *** adding a food rating for "Brew" a restaurant next door with nice cheap but reasonably classy eats and 60+ bottles and taps from the Half Time selection. ** oh, and Half Time just had Southampton stuff, too!

We came here to stock up the RV before our Roadtrip BQ2010. Very nice selection for a Beer Store - has to be one of the best (especially in the area).

Stopped off here after a long haul, and was pleasantly surprised by the spacious, well-lighted, and - especially - majestically well-stocked store. Not that I expected slim pickings, based on the reviews I’d read, but I’m saying it exceeded expectations. Picked up some Captain Lawrence and Ithaca goodies, and wish I could have packed more. Suffice it to say that all major US micros are represented, as well as a comprehensive selection of regionals. Really good Belgian selection too, with plenty Cantillon. Plus, I went next door to a sweet joint called Crews (mods, it’s back open - unretire it!) and had a great convo with Matt the manager of Half Time. Awesome, and I will assuredly be back.

Wow! What a huge beer selection! Tons of great beer with friendly and helpful staff. Great ambiance, well organized and clean. For the price, it depends of the beers. Some are cheaper than in other store and some are a lot more expensive. Add a vintage/rare section and it would be the perfect store!

Établissement visité le lundi 5 avril vers 11h. Ambiance: Grand magasin très propre et très ordonné dans son rangement. Service: Très serviable et aidant. Suggestion de quelques bières rares. Sélection: En voulez-vous de la bière en v’là. Je ne savais plus où donner de la tête. (149e rating d’établissement)
