4.3/5  rDev -1.4%
quality: 4 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.5 | $$$

Went here when on my way to visit some family over the holidays. Kind of a warehouse setup inside, big shelving units stacked pretty high. Its somewhat organized, possibly with the busy holiday season they struggled to keep things together, you could find the same beer on 3 different shelves at times. The service was very good, despite it being very busy in the store, the staff was pretty attentive. The selection was very good. There was a big focus on NY breweries then the heavy hitters like Stone, Rogue, Sierra, Lagunitas and so on. There was about 8 or so taps where you could fill a growler. You can break up any six pack and get whatever you want. There was a very good import section and a lot of Belgian beers. The prices were very hit and miss. There were a couple of prices that I found good, but other stuff that I found more expensive. All in all it was a good trip, I'd go back.

Looks small from the outside. But once I walked in, I was surprised on how big it actually was. They have a lot of variety. A very good selection. The staff was pleasant and helpful. There is a growler station. Didn't notice the price for them though. Good selection on them also. Plenty of cooler space. Prices seemed standard. Will be going here again and again.
