Went down there on a 2 hours road trip from Montreal.

Very tiny place, but great selection of what I was mainly looking for : Dogfish Head.

Snatched some 120 minutes, World Wide Stout, Immort Ale, all limited releases.

They did stock plenty of Stone, Sierra Nevada, etc.

Price-wise, they were on the pricier side of things for the 120 minutes IPA (12$ vs the 10 $ I paid a week before in maine), WWS was 9.99 as it should have been, the rest was also at regular price.

Excellent place with an amazing selection of beer (for Plattsburgh). Staff is courteous and very helpful. Very cramped inside the actual beer vaults without real direction as to where you can find stuff but that just allows you to notice beer that you weren't looking for. Prices are well marked and are very low. Highly recommended.

This is my home town spot, came to find this place in 2001 my freshman year at college. then it was the place for cases and kegs. now that im older and understand the quality instead of quantity. Pick up my brews every Friday, the selection of 22oz bottles, 12&6pks are great! then there is the "WALL" I like to call it, dozens of single bottles of craft beers normally rotated every 2 weeks to give a diverse selection. Prices range from $1.50-$4.00 a bottle but its reasonable depending on the make! There will be the random moment where they have a limited amount od 120 min. on hand for $11 a bottle, but you get what you pay for!

Plattsburgh's best kept secret. Heck, if you're anywhere near Plattsburgh, it's worth a stop. It certainly doesn't have the best selection I've ever seen, but it's 2nd best in Plattsburgh, and unlike the establishment with the best selection, Richard's is reasonable priced, and the products actually have a price tag/label.

They recently began to carry many new singles, many of which I've never seen in town.

Props to Derek @ Richard's Grocery, who took my phone call from across the lake and set aside some choice picks for me until I could get there on the weekend (the fresh Heady Topper I brought for you and Richard was well deserved).

Why may you ask are my ratings so high on this store? Does the word OASIS have any meaning?? Plattsburgh was once a booming business community that was hit hard by the closing of the Air Force base, and anyone who lives in the "North Country" that appreciates quality beer owes Richard a debt of gratitude for making a damn impressive selection available in such a tiny space, and yes, the store is also his house.

I rate the service a 5 because of how I was treated, however their ability to tell you details about each individual product may fall short if guidance is what you are looking for, but I already knew what I wanted to grab and eyeballed some other finds for the next trip.

Richard shared his experience of buying pricey high end beers that he was skeptical of and discovered he wished he had bought 10 times the amount by how it sold. Support this North Country Beer Oasis!

I just got back from this place and I could not be more impressed. Previous reviewers talk about Long Trail and Saranac, but you can find that In Peice Choppers. When I was there, they had a very large selection of Founders, Green Flash, Stone, Rogue, Alesmith, Ommegang, and much much more, at very reasonable prices. I picked up a 4 pack of Founders Breakfast Stout for 11$. They won't let you break up a sixer, but they have plenty bombers available. For Montrealers, this is a must, they have everything we read about but can't find in Quebec
Edit: I just came back to my post to dock this place a few points. Yes, it's my fault for not checking in the store, but it turns out I bought a bottle of 3 year old Hennepin. 3 YEARS!
So be advised to check for dates!
