Another day, another road trip in search of good craft for BAs infi and r0nyn! We decided to try out this store after hearing so many good things about it from not only BA but a number of other beer sites. Took us no more than 20 minutes to get there from across the Tappan Zee on a Saturday afternoon. Nestled behind a strip mall right off the Saw Mill Parkway, De Cicco's seems like a regular suburban grocery store from the outside. Little did we know what awaited us inside.

The beer section is towards the back of the store, located at the end of the soda aisle. And what a section it is. There's a growler fill station with several taps that held a rotating lineup and right in front of it, a freezer filled with cheeses of all shapes and sizes (including some Chimay offerings, ostensibly to go with the corresponding ales). Next to that is the treasure trove: a long cooler filled with all sorts of craft goodness. There was a great selection, with stuff from Rogue, Stone (including some rarities like the Kona Coffee Porter), Captain Lawrence (duh), Weyerbacher, DFH, Mikkeler, Ballast Point, Weihenstephaner, Smuttynose and many, many more. There were also some racks next to the cooler section with giant magnum bottles of Chimay Blue and Duvel, along with some offerings from Cantillion, Great Divide, Bear Republic and Hoppin' Frog. Just an amazing lineup to choose from. They even have a separate cooled room for all the BMC dross, as if it was too unworthy to sit next to the craft stuff. The quality of the product was also excellent, with almost all of the bottles I checked being fresh.

Prices were actually more reasonable than I expected, like a 750ml bottle of Unibroue Maudite for $5.99 and a Stone RIS for $6.99. Pretty surprising for a store like De Cicco's but I wasn't about to complain. Mostly everything was in line with what I'm used to seeing in other beer stores, so you won't end up paying more if you buy here.

The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, helping us find a bomber of Stone Double Bastard that was squirreled away behind all the other Stone things and answering some questions I had about various stouts. Very pleasant experience.

Overall, probably one of the best craft beer stores I've ever been to. Not terribly far away, with an excellent selection, great quality and friendly staff, De Cicco's in Ardsley definitely merits at least a few more return visits in the future.

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.
