This midsized place is just a few miles east of downtown Albany and about 10 minutes down the road from Mahars. Looks like a typical macro based spot and when I visited everybody seemed to be carrying out a fresh 18 pack of Bud light. But fear not, there are tons of goodies to be had off of the steel shelving units to the rear, the coolers in the rear and from the about a half a dozen growler fill taps. Expect to find all the typically available in NY state good stuff, which I'm happy to say is alot. Watch out for your freshness/vintage datings, when available, cuz, I'm sad to say there was a bit more then a tad of dust on some of the stock. Friendly guys behind the counter is always a plus. If I was local this would be a regular stop.

Killer selection, helpful staff, and a nice variety on the taps. If you happen to be at Crossgates Mall, take the three minute drive to Westmere for some treats to bring home.

The sister store to Oliver's- part of the Brew Crew group of stores in Albany. The selection is very similar to Oliver's, but a few bottles missing at Westmere that were at Oliver's, with a few bottles missing at Oliver's that were at Westmere. Picked up some Pretty Things for the first time, haven't seen it on the shelf in Rochester yet. The place is kind of dirty, a bit grimy. A warehouse sort of feel to it, much like Oliver's. Friendly employees though, offered help even when I didn't need it.
