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.

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.

My first stop after landing at Buffalo airport. Well worth the 15 minute drive. This place is clearly world class in many ways. Great selection of domestic and international beers, including several right from my wants list. Plus, although I did not really check it out, they fill growlers! Pretty impressive.

The best service I've ever seen in a beer store. They are great with geeks and newbies alike, and always bend over backwards to make folks from Toronto feel welcome when we come by. Wonderful selection of quality products, with a little crap thrown in for fun. The gourmet food store is just a nice bonus.

In a word, selection. Organized by Country or State are a half dozen aisles. Buying a bottle rather than a six-pack make it great for sampling. Gaining a profile for Canadians travelling through the USA from Niagra Falls/Toronto as its near the border. European selection. Update summer 2012: New store, more stock, easier to traverse the aisles, 20 taps of the latest coming into town.

New location is bigger and a bit nicer than the old one, though more out of the way from the other Buffalo beer sites. Solid selection of American and European beers. We rarely leave here without spending more than originally planned. With some of the imports it would be nice if they started date stamping them upon arrival, particularly the hoppy stuff. Growler fill station is pretty cool, and I like that they will fill 1L growlers as well since full sized ones can be a but much. Prices are generally reasonable, though six packs and cases of more widely available stuff can sometimes be found cheaper at Consumers, or Wegmans.

Large warehouse with a great selection of coffee, cheese, deli meats and of course - beer. Good selection with a few things I hadn’t seen in NYC before. It’s a great spot - nice cheese selection as well.

weihenweizen  (429) Charleston Area, West Virginia | May 3, 2016
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.

Parking friendly store well located in an ugly commercial part Buffalo. The beer section is actually rather small in square foot but is tightly packed and uses high shelves. You really get a surprisingly large selection for so few square foot. Not really pleasant to shop at because it is so tightly packed. Standard NY state selection but it doesn’t compare to the best eastern NY state stores like Half-Time and New Beer in NYC. Even Albany has a better selection. It’s unfortunate that the eastern NY state breweries (Captain Lawrence and friends) do not make it there. Solid American selection (no rarities), medium Belgian selection, non-belgian import selection (English, German, etc.) is sub-par but who cares. Probably the best western NY state beer store by default.

UDBeernut  (348) Saint Johns, Florida | June 5, 2012| Updated November 18, 2012
Update: got a growler today $3.50 for the vessel, 20 beers to choose from including 120 min and oak aged yeit. Selction gets huge bump. Large store with two sides. One totally dedicated to wine and booze. The other is dedicated to beer, some gourmet food, and cooking impliments. this review focus just on beer selection. Everything I would expect of a quality beer store. Nothing terribly out of this world. Beers on tap. I did pick up a bomber of southern tier oak aged cuvee series 1. It has the selection of half time (look it up) but about 1/4 of the size. Prices were reasonable, even down right cheap. Maybe I am just used to the eastern NY BS.
