I finally got a chance to stop by Olive Tree today. I had the day off work and thought what an opportunity I have to try some place that I've been thinking of for some time now.

I dropped by just after 3pm. Not busy at all, and I went straight for the beer section. Holy shi... Great selection!! A few fridge doors of quality craft beer. Another few shelves of unrefrigerated liquid gold.

As I perused, I found a large assortment of solid drinkers. A closer look found me with some beer gems. HotD Blue Dot, Avery Brabant, Ommegang Biere de Mars, etc. What a great spot to grab those beers you've been longing to try and just haven't stumbled upon yet. As I checked out, the cashier and I discussed how some of these beers were going to taste and what we thought of other beers in general.

A great atmosphere, quality selection of beer and other goods offered, and all around good times. I was also able to grab a sandwich from the deli and found that to be delicious. I can't wait to make my way back to OB just to visit Olive Tree Market.

Stopped in here on the way to Pizza Port since it was so close by. Similar feel to the BDBS in that it sort of feels like a corner bodega thanks to all the food they sell while still having a large selection of wine and beer sprinkled in. Atmosphere was decent enough. People coming in and grabbing supplies and quickly getting back to what they were doing. I noticed they had a taproom but it wasn’t open due to the purveyor being in Belgium, lucky guy. Service was pretty good. I was asked if I needed any help once, always nice. Quality was pretty good. Lots of different accouterments to enhance your beers or wines available. Selection was a little small compared to some of the other shops I have visited in the area but they had some really nice bottles so that more than made up for it. Prices were on par with all of the other places I have encountered. Overall a nice local bottle shop with some really nice bottles. Not something I would go out of my way to visit but if you are in the area it is definitely worth a stop to check out.

Stopped in here while in town just to see what they had. I was blown away. Shelf turds like Fantome Extra Sour, Saison, Printemps, and 3 Fontenin’s Golden Blend, Cognac Brunch Weasel, Almanac. Picked up an Almanac Heirloom Pumpkin, Avery Rumpkin, Lost Abbey Cuvée de Tomme, and HotD Fred from the Wood (2009 vintage no less). As an east coaster this was awesome. Lots of other choices but shipping is getting expensive. Prices weren’t out of whack but not great either. Nice staff, also food and cheeses and wine. Apparently they also do beer tastings here. Neat spot and plenty of awesome brews (I am nice and left the last Rumpkin for someone else). Highly recommended.

One of my favorite places to stop at when visiting the area. They alwasys have an excellent selection of cold and regular bottles plus something fun to try in the tasting room. Everyone working there seems to have a smile on their face and happy to assist. I have never left empty-handed and don't plan to in the future.
