4.7/5  rDev +8.5%
quality: 5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.5 | $$

Cheers: Hummus is spot on, sandwiches like totally 80's rock. Nice selection of artisian and cheapo cheeses. Interesting array of portable pre-packaged carbohydrates. Turkey sammy Fuccillo HUGE enough to soak up anything Imperial that you are gonna throw at the gastro. Seasonal selections well placed within stumbling, heck, even crawling distance from front door. Artvoice and Brewing News rack located immediately inside of the front door in case you run into the age old beer vs. toilet paper dilemma. Beer always wins. BTW. Provided us with plastic cups to drink brews on the long walk back to Allentown. Staff recommended the scenic Elmwood to North to Allen to Days Park for a growler walk.

Jeers: Actually, I can not think of any besides I wish that I had the capital to finance my own brew emporium on Elmwood Ave. I also dislike the usage of Village, as the Elmwood area has apparently become. But that's neither here, there, or hairy bear (or Eyeball for that matter).

3.84/5  rDev -11.3%
vibe: 3.25 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 3.75 | $$$

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.

3.64/5  rDev -15.9%
vibe: 3.5 | quality: 3.5 | service: 4 | selection: 3.5 | $$

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.
