Words cannot describe it. Get in your car, plane, train, whatever it takes and visit Half Time. You won't regret it. I attended college nearby and saw the birth of this beer mecca but couldn't imagine the greatness that it has become. Pilsners and Lagers and Stouts OH MY! First stop to make in the store is the micro-brew-on-tap center. Shortly after that, clean the drool off your sweater and head to the cooler after cooler of choice beverages. I entered the store hearing good things and was curious but didn't expect to purchase any that night. I left the store with a "variety is the spice of life" mixed 6 pack of micro-brews, of which I had only one before. Really, the previous posts and mine aren't exaggerating when we say that this could be the best beer distribution center in the lower 48 and quite possibly the best in the beer drinking world. I live in a small town upstate, very near a brewery that is known by few (Davidson Brothers)...to my delite Half Time had two of these brews on tap and even more on the shelves. They are in search of the scotch ale from there which could quite possibly become my favorite of all time. To quote the man I talked to "We get our beer." I have no doubt that a visit to this store will leave you smiling and pennyless...both good things when it comes to good beer!

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!
