Read about this place on the website and since I was in the area, thought I’d check it out. From the outside it is pretty un appealing. Looks like an old service station. Inside it is a warehouse atmosphere, but the selection is great and the staff friendly and helpful. They seemed to be "beer guys". They allow singles and they fill growlers which is unheard of where I live(NH). Prices were in line with anyplace else I’ve been. If your in the area, it’s woth a stop.
Stopped here on a whim and was impressed. The staff was very helpful. The place looked alittle beat up but the selection was very good. I don’t think it had as much as Olivers but it definitely had more than most. Definitely worth stopping in.

This place is like the little brother of Oliver’s Beverage on Colvin Ave in Albany, in that the selection isn’t quite as good. I used to stop by here on the way home from work a few years back, and they’ve got a decent little selection. Nothing particularly amazing or difficult-to-find, but they certainly have a more diverse selection than most average bev centers. It’s worth a check.
Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon on a drive back from Montreal. Nice selection with a good variety of imports. Ended up picking up a few different ciders that I can’t get by me. Worth a stop if you’re in the area.
Came here to grab a beer for the hotel room. Large selection sorted by country. Plenty of beer to tick. Lots of it seemed to be collecting dust so check freshness. Some 6 packs, bombers, and magnums in the cooler. Prices were fair.
I always look for reviews from out of towners as I believe that locals tend to over hype places. I live outside of Buffalo so I am not a local.
The place looks like a mini mart from the outside and has a lot of BMC neon and BMC beer in the front windows. When you walk in, more than half the store is filled with craft beer. They have a better than average selection and it seems they get a mixed distribution of downstate and upstate distributors but don’t really have any special or rare that I can’t get back home. The guys working there were friendly and willing to answer questions. Their prices were mixed, some things high, some things were average. I would not return here myself and not because of service, selection, or price..because I can almost of the beer they carry at home.

Visited August 13th 2016 around 7pm. Last beer stop before returning home after a week with Uncle Sam. Messy store without air conditioning (it was like 80 degrees Inside) 2 minutes from I-87. Fridges are reserved for 4 and 6-packs and generic brands. Great selection of american beers divided by brewery and a full aisle of imported from Belgium, Canada and UK. I found some rarities and barrel aged I didn’t see elsewhere. You can grab a single from pack. There was 2 employees they never came to me. At least they helped my girlfriend in her fruit beer searching. This place could be more serious if they would remove dust on bottles. I wouldn’t have the impression that most of the stuff is out of date. Nice place overall but I prefer the Oliver’s Beverage a few miles away.

set up like a wharehouse. Single bottles are encouraged. Wide selection for a small place. Great distributorif you like bottles that have dusk on them.
