Great selection for area. More cities need to ship to Buffalo. We drink and appreciate beers alot. As far as good goes there are tons of sauces and spices from all over. The wine and spirit selection is vast. There is something here for everyone.

This place is the real deal. It might not look like a beer store from the outside, but it most definitely is. Massive selection of bottles, in addition to a growler station. The bottled offering is vast, with a wide array of non-US beers from all the big hitters. The US selection is outstanding. Tons of regional NY stuff, random things from all over the place, big craft brewery classics. It seemed like most beers that were sold in six-packs also had singles available, which is great. I didn’t have a ton of time here, so I basically just grabbed a bunch of cans to bring back to London. But if I had more time, I probably could have spent well over an hour just browsing their shelves. I don’t really care too much about service in bottle shops, but it is worth noting that a guy asked me if I needed any help within a minute of my starting to scan the selection; so, the service here seems pretty good. This place feels like an upscale market. The beers are neatly laid out. If you are even remotely close to this store, you should try to get here.

Big free dedicated parking lot. Big box store atmosphere, it was clean. Selection was very good. Quite a bit of nice European bottles I was looking for, some Canadian bottles I was looking for, Captain Lawrence, and many others. Pricing was good. Service was very good, I had a guy helping me stock up. I bought over a case. They has some taps, but nothing I was looking to try. Really nice bottle shop I will try and come back when in the area.

Whatup14  (235) Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec | August 11, 2015
Épicerie de produits fins située en périphérie de Buffalo. Superbe sélection de bouteilles (1500 selon eux) en plus d’un kiosque de growler où 20 choix sont présentés. Les prix sont plutôt bons, moins sur les bouteilles plus rares. Le service est plutôt typique d’une épicerie, mais ils ont des employés attitrés aux bières.

A big box store with style. Although large and cavernous, this is high end with a great selection of many different things. Service was pleasant and tried to be helpful. Selection is huge and I could spend lots of time and money here. They have a cafe, but I didn’t eat. Pricing is reasonable, make sure you get a value card for the special discounts. A great stop that I would happily frequent whenever I am in the area.

Another recommendation to me by a fellow RB member and this is one I will visit every time I make the drive out to Buffalo. The selection here is insane and you can spend a lot of time browsing. Prices are pretty good, but some stuff is a little too high for me. It’s very hard to get the limited release stuff, but there is so much to choose from I always leave happy. Just wish the rare beers were easier to get there and I’m guessing many get bought up by the employees first. Overall though this is one stop you need to make in Buffalo.

Helsdon  (15) Toronto, Ontario | March 16, 2014
It might just be because I’m a long-suffering Ontarian living under the iron hand of the LCBO, but I love this place. The website touts that they have1500 types of beer, I didn’t do the count, but there were lots, and lots of choices here. Definately a few I can’t get in Ontario (ie Tripel Karmeliet) plus lots of local US craft beers, and vintage bottles. It’s tucked into the back corner of a much larger Gourmet Store, which I didn’t pay the slightest attention to. The staff was quite helpful both during my most recent trip as I looked for a couple of stragglers off my list and to my wife who on a previous trip just handed my whole list over. Can’t comment on value as their beer was cheaper than that in Ontario, but compared to other US locations, I’m not sure. The only real negative I had was their website. It didn’t list all the beers that they had on shelf, and really wasn’t searchable. I put in Ommegang and got no results, but by viewing all beers and scrolling through to page 16 there is the list.

Visited: 6-3-12 Thet have moved into their new location and it is better than it was before. Even though the beer sector is roughly the same as the previous location, but they now have a 20 tap growler fill station and a good sized walk in cooler. A: The Gourmet shop has a nice atmosphere and the place is very clean. They also will feature a small cafe area which is nice because you grab some gourmet delicacies while there too. Q: They have lots of different beers from different states and countries...plus get all of the rarities that come to the area. S: Ethan and his team are very knowledgeable and will make great recommendations for any style you inquiry about. There is always someone there to talk ask questions. S: Thee best selection in the Buffalo area..is doesnt even come close. V: They are very reasonably priced compared to consumers or village beer merchant and is always the cheapest when it comes to rarities. Overall, if you are from out of town and post a thread about what bottle shops to hit, this one is always at the top of everyones list. No Comparison.

buffalo’s best selection, in my opinion. Fairly large gourmet food stop with a big selection. Tougher bottles (KBS, BCBS, etc) go fast though. Good selection of imports but a bit pricey. Fantastic selection of cheeses here to go with your haul.
