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!

My review is based on my online order. The website is pretty straightforward and allows for easy navigation. You can sort beers by breweries, countries, states, styles, etc., so that can be helpful when browsing. They do carry a lot of beers, especially from the regional breweries. If you see any highly sought after beer, I'd suggest buying it quickly. Since this was my first online beer purchase, and I was wavering back and forth whether to proceed or not. I missed out on BCBS, Night Stalker, and some nice IPA's. :( My bad though.
I finally did order, and my shipment was processed and shipped promptly. They used a pulp shipper, and my beers were packaged nicely. I was able to re-use their shipper for a subsequent trade, so that was a plus.
I found the prices to be reasonable, and the shipping charges fair. I didn't purchase enough to qualify for free shipping, but that's an option too for those ordering more than $100.
Overall, I was pleased with my experience. I would recommend them highly when purchasing beers not available locally.

A beer supermarket is a beautiful thing. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Aisles of beer from around the world and microbrews from the US. Quantities of seasonal beers, (Pumpkin Ale from Dogfish Head for example) when other beer distributors get a few cases ,they get pallets. Found all my favorites. Worth the trip (about fifty miles away for me.).They sell single bottles, try a new beer, find a new favorite. Some beer they keep behind the counter, don't forget to look there. Four packs of Super Kitty from Keegan Ales are there this week. I bought one for New Years Eve.
