work has me at this store every month or so... and that is a good thing.

For a supermarket the selection is excellent, even better than some liquor stores. Unlike the Pelham location the layout here is king (not to diss Pelham but it is just a smaller store, great selection there also). I know some of the employees so for me the service is always great. They may not have someone in the beer department 24/7 but just ask for help, there is always someone helpful in the store. There is one long row of refrigerated numbers ranging from a great selection of local micro (NY) product to Belgian and other countries. The Belgian section has most of those you expect but also nice treats like Cantillon products and most of the Trappist brews we all know and love. I also picked up a nice nub of chimay cheese (which is excellent if you haven't had it). The macros are tucked away in a walk in fridge to the right of the beer cooler... so the push at this store is micro and craft (kudos). To give a brief shot off the top of my head here are some things I have bought/seen there:
Achel, Golden Caroulous, Saison DuPont, Cantillon, Ithaca Beer Co, Lagunita's, Dogfish, North Coast (they have 04 old stock ale), Krait, Bear Republic, Stone, Rogue (including the japanese "Retired" ones), Hitachino Nest, Avery, Southampton, Six Point, Southern Tier, and lots of other stuff.

The bonus is this is just a kick ass market in all regards, first class in all categories. They got to build this one up from basically scratch and the care is revealed in the detail of the location.

One complaint? not about the store (if you are not from NY) you get pegged for the bottle refund charge... which being in NJ obviously I am not used to, this isn't too far from north jersey and is worth the drive, you could always grab a small cantillon geuze and some grub... why not. (1,867 characters)

Oh my was this place a joy to find! Huge selection, all refrigerated. The coolers stretched on and they had pretty much everything. Also have a growler bar with 12 taps available, picked a crowler of Hoppy Birthday. I will definitely come back to this place. (258 characters)

The somewhat recent overhaul of the Beer Dept was much needed. Not as vast of a selection as the two flagship stores, but still a great selection. As of late the tasting events have become stellar and unlike what anyone is doing in the area. The Beer Manager here is a great guy with vast knowledge and a great personality. This is my go-to lunch break pick up spot. (366 characters)

The inventory is less expansive and the staff is less helpful than other DeCicco's stores (often times, there is apparently nobody working in the beer dept). (157 characters)

Good customer service and very good selection. Prices were on par with what I've seen at home. This was a nice stop on my way to a business trip to CT. (152 characters)

This store is on par with Pelham and Harrison. Since the renovation they have an even larger beer selection most of which is refrigerated. Making the selection larger then the other two. Their new taps are in a much more convenient location.

As with all the DeCiccos the pricing is on the low side for the area. Just recently I was able to get Bomb and Xmas Bomb for 8.99 and 9.99, respectively.

The staff is friendly and knowledgable. As willing to order a case of whatever you are looking for as to suggest a good beer for the day. (538 characters)

This place has great selection of beers. During my visit the beer manager was very helpful to me in finding beers on my list and offering suggestions. He was kind enough to find me a speedway stout in the back since the last one in the fridge was taken. I got 5 of my Top 250 from here. Great prices on the beers and majority were served cold. The growler station was a week away from completion which would make it even better. (429 characters)

This is a great store with very knowledgable staff. Brett knows his stuff for sure. They recently renovated and expanded they're layout to a much easier browsable layout. Previous reviewer visited amidst their construction so take that with a grain of salt. On top of all new releases and trustworthy for recommendations (320 characters)

I visited this store many years ago, back when it was considered one of the best beer stores in the NY area. It’s a different story now… I stopped by after checking out the new DeCicco’s in Armonk, and what a difference. Under construction now, the Ardley store is comparatively smaller.

They have a couple of coolers surrounding the cheese section, with all the big American craft brands sold in packs and bombers. I spotted some cool stuff such as Mikkeller Black and Black Hole, Brewdog Tokio, six different brands of Perennial, fifteen types of Bruery, Super Kitty… I opted for a Dogfish World Wide Stout.

They used to have growlers but I did not see them. While not bad, this store pales in comparison to the new DeCicco’s in Armonk. I will try to revisit after the construction is over to see what’s going on. (833 characters)

Large, beautiful Italian market in Ardsley with a great beer selection. There's a growler station with about 10 selections, didn't indulge there. Some great selections- haven't seen Cigar City in Rochester yet- couldn't imagine a better New Year's Eve drink than a fresh, crisp sixer of Jai Alai! Picked up a Bruery bomber (Autumn Maple, score) as well a Stone Double Bastard and an Imperial Biscotti Break- DeCicco's version. Other great selections abound throughout the back cooler and random shelves interspersed throughout the store. There's a singles shelf that was picked over pretty clean, seems like they keep some good stuff there. The food at the market seemed very high quality. No service to speak of, but the staff seemed very friendly and willing to help if you needed it. Definitely worth a stop. (811 characters)
