I stopped here while I was visiting Buffalo last week and was very impressed. They have an immense selection of American micro-brews, a fairly extensive selection of English, Belgian, and German beers, as well as 12 growler taps. I picked up a Rocheforte 10, Fullers 1845, Old Rasputin, and Caracole Saxo. They also have a decent selection of fine meats and cheeses and there is a deli built right into the store. I wish I lived in Buffalo so I could stop by here on weekends to get a sandwich and some fine beer. There was only one person working when I visited, and she seemed a little overwhelmed with all the customers, but it wasn't a big deal. They were also out of bread while I was there, which I though was kind of odd for a Deli, but o well. I would definitely recommend this place.

A very classy shop, near Cole's bar and therefore right off the Peace Bridge. This allows a new option for Canadians to shop for bottles if they can't get far enough to Premiere. The comparisons start. Premiere has more selection, particularly with their very liberal singles policy, much spottier service,more food and soda with your beers, more parking, and closer to the main though more expensive Buffalo shopping haunts. Village is more navigatable aisles, slightly better pricing, and of course a different part of town.

A bit disappointed. Nothing here that I couldn't find elsewhere. The selection would be good for somebody who hadn't tried as much beer. Still a good selection nonetheless, just nothing crazy when I went.

They have a good looking growler area that I didn't patronize. Glassware available for purchase as well.
