I'm fortunate enough to live walking distance from this store. Unlike any distributor, this place is setup to cater to the beer enthusiast. If you're looking for that great special on Bud Cases, go elsewhere ... this place isn't for you.
An extensive collection of craft microbrews from around the world. If it's available for sale in the state of NY, there's an excellent chance that Half Time will have it.
The aisles are setup by country to help narrow down what you're looking for or to assist in browsing by geography.
There are also 10 Taps available for Growler fill-up.
I highly recommend stopping here if you're from out of town and want to do some shopping.
Ask for Manager Matt, or look for him at the bar nextdoor at Crew. He's extremely helpful and generous. A pure pleasure to talk beer with. :-P

Great beer store that I'm lucky to live near. Many times the difficult thing is picking out what to actually buy as hard not to find more that I want then I can actually drink. They seem to carry almost everything distributed in NY and the best part is you can purchase everything by the bottle so no need to buy multiples to try a new beer. Have enjoyed some fresh growler fills as well. Prices in reason for NY. They seem to employee people who know and like beer if you have questions; I know many of them are quite knowledgeable and active in local beer community.

A huge beer store in Poughkeepsie, widely renowned. My expectations for this place were absurdly high due to other BA's reviews, and those expectations weren't quite met, but this is still a must stop due to the wide selection and helpful staff. Multiple aisles of beer separated by country, and a solid growler selection. The "best stuff" is behind the counter, visible. Workers were very knowledgeable about the selection and helped me determine if it was worth dropping $20 on BA Boris (they said it would be, and happily, it was). Definitely recommended.

The staff is always helpful and for the most part they all seem to know beer - impressive
Great Store that has a monster selection, a bit on $$$ side but if you want hard to find beer this is the spot
they have a website that updates there new beer arrivals - NICE!
