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.

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.
