Great selection, not only abundant in State, but plenty I have never seen from distant states. Arranged by state, which is great for tickers. Service is goid, friendly and informative. Prices are okay, but 3 dollar discount on six packs. Ambience is rather warehouse like, not up to TW standards. Parking is easy enough in blah neighborhood.

Sister bottle shop of Westmere, so they basically have the same delivery of beers. So the selection is through the roof with awesome stuff. Still, an exceptionally clean warehouse like store that looks just a tad cleaner than Westmere on the outside. Check it out if you’re in the area.

Visited August 7th 2016 at 10AM. Located in a huge warehouse 5 min from I-87 and 2 from I-90. Incredible selection of both americans and imports. They also have a reasonable ciders selection. Divided by brewery with a lot of rarities and OMG-I-will-spend-a-2-weeks-pay-here-s. They had a dozen of different FiftyFifty Eclipses, BA Firestones, weighty Bruerys and so many more. You can spend an hour in there and find something you didn’t see the first time you passed by. Nobody came to me but I saw an employee with someone else. They gave me a rebate because I bought a dozen of bottles and this was nice. Small concern: they don’t have air conditioning and a lot of bottles on shelves...

Probably the best selection in the Capital Region that I've seen so far. Great location right off central too.

Typical NY State beer shelf warehouse ambiance. Service was minimal. Selection excellent. Overall value seemed fair. I really liked this store’s selection, so a bit surprised my score is not higher, but there really was very limited service on the day I was there and the ambiance (while typical) was unappealing.

I seem to stop here every time I visit or drive through Albany. Huge selection of local and regional brews, plus a lot of stuff we don’t get in Mass. Helpful staff. Prices seem OK.

Sister store of Westmere Beverage, with essentially the same format, though the selection is a little bigger.

Great selection of deals and new inventory as soon as you walk in. A craft beer cooler on the left and a macro cooler on the other side with a huge selection.

Bottles are sorted by country and state. Great selection of breweries from around the world, though a lot of product tends to sit for a while.

Staff is pretty good most of the time. They’ll help you out without hesitation. ask for Nico, he’s the best.

Not a fan of the empties return process. They usually dig through your bags and boxes and fish out stuff that’s not technically returnable. Why so anal?

Otherwise no complaints. It’s a great store with a great selection. Usually busy no matter when you shop there, so expect lines at the counter.

Love coming to Olivers. Great selection for what we get in NY. Beers are separated by region, with the US taking up most of the room. There is also a newer Cider section for ciders only. Love the create your own six pack. And they just added tons more selection this week, April 2014!!!

Un classique depuis 2-3 ans. Ma réserve secrète de Firestone special release et de 3 Fontenein. Les prix sont raisonnables et la variété de bières internationales vaut le détour à elle seule.

A wharehouse with lots of beer. Nice selection of upstate beers and some random other countries which is what I picked up. Nothing super exciting at least when I was there but staff was friendly and certainly worth a stop if u need supplies in A town.
