Had to stop in and check this place out while visiting my brother in Oswego. It's produce Market that provides fruits and vegetables to local restaurants and schools. So it's a wholesale operation. The beer is clearly retail.

It's supposedly the local go to place for Ommegang products. There certainly were Ommegang products in abundance. They carried the usual suspects along with Bière de Mars and Ommegeddon. These were very pricey in my opinion. At around 10-12.00 per bottle, I'll have to pass.

I found this place to be a little more than a beer distributor geared to the college crowd, and those beer savvy. They carried several Stone products, a decent selection and a decent selection of craft brews. I noticed and abundance of Southern Tier products, along with some Ithaca brewing, Pretty little things, Lake Placid, and Middle Ages.

Six packs of Oskar blues beers for around 11.00 which I guess is par for the course these days. Slyfoxx was available, along with a decent selection of Rogue products.

They had carried a few Belgians like Chimay, Westmalle, and Duvel. Nothing out of the ordinary though.

The cooler had some different selections other than what was found on the shelf, so if you can't find what you want hot, it may already be waiting for you in the cooler.

The service here was suspect. It was a Saturday evening and there was what seemed to be two college guys behind the counter that offered little more than a wassup to us. My brother raves about how great the owner is, and how he really knowledgeable.
I won't knock the service, since the beer selection was pretty straightforward. Let's face it selecting beers isn't rocket science, but it is nice to get a friendly smile, and an offer for finding something different.

While I did find this place extremely pricey, I would probably go back again to see what they have the next time I'm in Oswego.
If you want some inexpensive Ommegang, go to the Wegmans on Rte 31 in Liverpool. I saw bottles of Hennepin and Rare Vos for 5.00!!

Once located this is one of the best beer stores in Upstate NY. The owners are very knowledgeable and friendly. If they can get it, they do. They offer a wide variety and even though some will say they are pricey they are quite reasonable.

They do a very good job of stocking locals as well as some of the bigger players in the craft beer world. Good selection of "Big Bottles" as well as 6-packs and a few 12-packs.

If you don't see it on the shelves ask and if they don't have it they will get it if they can.

Great e-mail list option for those of us who like to research before purchasing.

C's Farm Market has been my go to place for the past couple years. It is more of beverage center than a farm market. The produce portion of C's is for wholesale purposes; restaurants and such.

The service at C's is what keeps me coming back. The owners are friendly. They will take suggestions on what to order and give suggestions on what to try. They have a monthly newsletter that lists all their new products. This is great for researching some beers before going and buying.

The selection for six packs is average, however their selection of bombers is excellent. Many different and always changing bombers, all sorts of seasonal.

Their prices range greatly. Some beers will be inexpensive, but some beers will be overpriced. The pricing can sometimes make your beverage choices for you.

This place is devilishly hard to find, even if you're looking for it. The area has a 3rd avenue, *2* third streets.... Also, I guess 3rd avenue isn't continuous anyway. It's on the northern section off washington blvd.

Anyway, the store. No farm market of any sort when I visited - I assume this is a seasonal thing though. Small warehouse-like building with a walk-in fridge housing both micros and macros. Pretty good selection of sixers, bombers, and a singles rack.

Singles rack selection was unfortunately very limited, and some of these seemed slightly skunked on opening. They do not allow breaking up of sixers by customers, but they do have mixed sixers made up in-store.
