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.

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.

It's a supermarket, so there is only so much you can say about atmosphere and service and all that. The beer selection is probably one of the best I've seen in a supermarket, though. And they fill growlers! How awesome is that?
Most of the beers are found in the rear of the store, but you'll also find six packs scattered through out, at the end of the aisles.
Good selection of American-made beers.
