Average selection of craft beer variety, mostly found at any other outlet or retail. Examples include a small selection of german craft, Ayinger, Weinstephaner, Aecht, as well more common examples of Stone, Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams, Rogue, Flying fish etc. Their dedicate area to bombers is rather small, a shelf 10ft with 6 layers hardly offers anything out of the ordinary with the exception of Stone's Stochasticity project, which i havent seen in any other surrounding store. For the record, only 2 were on the shelf, i took one only to notice an employee spot my purchase and causually walk over to claim the other one looking at it percularily.

Most of the store is dedicate to wines with some liquor, some coolers for the beer, but again, nothing you couldnt find elsewhere, more of a convience factor to pick something up quick while shopping, killing two birds with one stone. Im guessing the help is more to help you find or point you to a general location, craft beer section is not big or immerse enough to warrant dedicated beer guy. Checkout was friendly, nice touch was the wine carry tote i was giving for my bomber purchase, which works equally as well for my liter growlers as a tote for jc. Selection variety severly limited as of review posting.

The build your own sixpack is limited in size as well, perhaps 50-60 offerings, again more common brands like sam adams, a lot of magic hat, sierra nevada, that must be purchased in multiples of 6 for a $10.99 price. no loosies. again dont expect any high price singles for your moneys worth, picked up a citra mantra, victory swing session, and koko brown then just supplemented after that sam adams rebel ipa, which still wasnt to bad for the price.

Overall i would say if you happen to be shopping there its more of a convience to pick up your favorite go to beer, (southern tier, smuttynose etc) but dont expect to find whales or speciality releases unless you happen to time it right. The place is a madhouse (Wegmans) on a weekend so it really isnt worth the aggravation of driving around the parking lot and fighting the crowds for something can pick up at a more smaller location that is not a giant metropolis within itself. Im more of a single purchaser, wether bombers or loosies (12oz) who enjoys looking for new beers to try, so this place was only worth a one time visit unless thier craft selection area increases and they use thier buying power and size to get some harder to find beers. For the record i didnt see any sours with exception of the bruery. Most of the stuff is local favorites, or six pack variety. If you happen to have a loved one into wine/hard liquor, then thier prices may intrique you, other then that, for the craft beer scavenger its hardly a find.

I think this store is great! Keep in mind that the beer selection isn't huge. Most of the store is devoted to wine, but what's there for beer is pretty darn good. They have a lot of the major players in the craft scene, and the brews they carry are generally the better ones. Turnover seems to be pretty good, as I always find really fresh beer. I got 12 day old DFH 60 Min from here not too long ago. And the prices are by far the best around. I go here for my "everyday" beer pick-ups, and go to Canal's Hainesport for harder to find brews. Nice little beer store!

This location has a limited amount of craft beer selections and sold at competitive prices. The best example I can give is that all Flying Fish 6-packs are sold cheaper than what is charged at the brewery (10 minutes from this location). One of the drawbacks of this store is that they tend to sell out quickly of certain craft beers and will not restock for almost a week. Although wine is mainly sold here, all of the beers are located in one aisle, so it is next to impossible to find anyone who has any beer knowledge. If you are in the area and want to save some money, give this location a try.
