Pulled numbers 28 & 29 in the parking lot at Captain Lawrence, but now I've got some time to kill before retrieving citizen Witzel in the city. I'll get to Stew's in a bit for Sushi and snap peas but I'm thinking I'd like to take in the DeCicco's in Ardsley. I'd read some good things and wanted to get there at some point; I just never realized it was located right off that secret shortcut road where you can jump from the Thruway to the Saw Mill or vice versa. Now that I know where it is, it's no surprise I never knew where it was...
Wandered the twisted angled aisles until I stumbled across the beer to the rear far corner. Literally, the only bit of space in the store I hadn't seen. Standard supermarket cold shelving except they've got lots of it, and some racks on the end holding warm bombers and Belgians, 750's and oh yeah, a small corner cold room walk in between the racks with nothing I really need there.
3 shelvings long of micro 6 packs run end to end; and 2 shelves above with imports Belgian, English, German, sharing space with micro 750's & 22's, and random singley things (DogFishHead World Wide Stout, Raison D'Extra & 120 Minute IPA, New England Imperial Stout Trooper). 6 packs available from at least 5 dozen breweries represented here, including all the organics and gluten frees beers tucked together. Some New York State and lots of goods across the New England and Mid Atlantic regions, and then less more the further out you go from here, though well represented. Some interesting big bottle goods from across the US (a stray Alesmith IPA, Ithaca Excelsior series, Schlafly Reserves, Port & Allagash Signature collaborations, Brooklyn Local 2 & Black Ops, and the "hadn't seen that one before, didn't even know they were bottling" Defiant Xmas).
And imports. It's just so damn strange seeing Cantillon & Fantome in a supermarket but thems is the times we live in, get used to it. I'm going to pinch me a couple of Petrus Aged Pale Ales and damn, they've got a whole lot of Unibroue 2004's for (like) $7 a pop. A whole lot here out of the norm. Ola Dubh Special 30 Reserves, J.W. Lees Harvest 02's, Gigantor 1.5 litre Abbaye De St Bon Chien magnums, gift packs, lots of Italian stuff, all sorts of things.
I got talking with John there for a good while and then Chris and Joe. I had been thinking "Someone knows what they're doing here" and now I know who them someones be. The only thing they're missing here are growler fills, and well... Oh, and you'll need cheese, bread, meats, veggies and stuff to pair and play, yeah, they're around here somewhere, it's a gourmet supermarket for Christ's sake. Undoubtedly, indubitably, the best selection in the county, and reasonably priced, sure to put a hurtin' on, ahem, other local places just down the road but they serve other purposes entirely anyway. Clearly the beer store in Westchester, seriously!

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.
