This is the sister store to Olivers on Colvin. Lately I find myself going to Westmere more. Several reasons for this: First they separate the new releases and put them on a separate shelf. They tend to get things around the same time as Olivers and things tend to last on the shelves a little bit longer. The service at both locations is good but this location has a few beer geeks on staff. Some know their stuff and will make a nice recommendation from time to time. I was once recommended Wild Blue here so be careful. They have been known to give out glasses to those with discerning tastes which Olivers does not do. Definately worth a stop if in town.

These guys have no problem leaving old stale beer on their shelves, maybe hoping you don't notice. Check dates. No dates, don't buy, ever. Dusty bottles (they are lazy about cleaning too) are never to be bought, and there are a ton of dusty bottles. Just lost twenty five bucks to spoiled beer. I never thought they'd be like this, but was totally disappointed. Felt ripped off and like an idiot, which I was. Oliver's, the sister store was never like this, but maybe they turn more stock... We'll see what happens when I go back with this old shit. Should be amusing... But I'm sure I'll be disappointed again.

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.
