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.

Nice relaxing music, staff there to ask you if you need help, but not badgering, staff, especially Josh is extremely knowledgeable. Great selection of everything. Wish they had a little more of the west-coast stuff, though.

Great beer selection. Website beer list was not updated in a while. Store it self looks a bit dated. Service id around is helpful. Average prices, plenty of singles is plus.

Don’t be a dumbass like me and walk into the wine store, there’s no beer there. Walk into the Deli and go all the way back. I was expecting a bigger selection, but what they do have is good. You can get singles and they carry lots of regional beers. Belgian selection was respectable also. I was able to pick up some Southern Tier Java, Middle Ages, Lost Cost, etc. Definitely worth a visit. Plus the store is cool. Lots of cheese, sauces, gourmet cookware and ingredients. Since I don’t live in Buffalo, it was all about the beer for me!

A little unsure of how I feel about this place - good coverage of the region, some goodies from PA and the PNW, and some excellent imports, but prices are only average and the store is somewhat cavernous and under-utilized. Though it loses to some of my favorite stores on mind-boggling quality and selection, it also maintains a very high standard and I’d be downright proud to have it as my local - so a big score. Next door does bring the mind-boggling selection on wine and spirits.

Blows away anything I can get in Canada, but I found the ambiance hard to take, prices were a bit high. Selection was probably pretty solid for the area.

This specialty food and liquor store has an extensive range of beers from around the world, all of which are sorted by their country and, in the case of U.S. beers, state of origin. Walk through the doors, turn left, and head to the back where you’ll find hundreds of high quality craft brews. I grabbed a Tröegs Nugget Nectar, Anchor Old Foghorn Barley Wine, Oskar Blues G’Knight Imperial Red and Ten FIDY, St. Louis Gueuze Fond Tradition, Hitachino Nest XH and Commemorative Ale, Kona Pipeline Porter, and Duvel Triple Hop, among many others. Compared to Village Beer Merchant, the prices are cheaper (certain beers are $3-4 less per bottle), the selection is larger, and some of the stock - like the Oskar Blues stuff - is fresher here. Service was very good as the clerks seem to know a lot about the products they’re selling (coffee, meats, bulk food) and the cashier jammed all of my bombers into a single case in order to avoid problems at the border. We also stayed for lunch since the deli sells various gourmet soups, sandwiches, and entrees. Overall, Premier offers a pleasant and sophisticated shopping experience with the best beer selection in the city. A mandatory stop when you come to Buffalo.

Been here a couple times in the past year and am impressed each time. A seemingly big old dirty store with its harsh white walls and lights, there’s more here than meets the eye -- many beer treasures live on huge shelves in the back corner, organized according to country. Factor in these hundreds of bottles of imports and North American treats, all the meats and cheeses and teas you have to walk by to get to the beer, and the cavernous wine store next door, and you’ve got a bunch of envious Canadians drooling across the border. Service is usually indifferent, but whatever: this place should definitely be on your list if you’re in town.

Whatup14  (227) 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.

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.

blipp  (199) La Mesa, California | January 12, 2008
Pretty good beer selection at pretty average prices. I got all three Rochefort Trappistes and there are lots of other beers that are pretty hard to find, as well as some beer that you can only find locally. Lots of other stuff in the store... cheese and other weird stuff. If you’re into that kinda stuff this place would be heaven.
