This place is about 10-15 minutes from downtown Albany. Well worth a stop if you are local or in the general area. Selection is extensive, tons of Belgians, all the expected locals, regionals and national micros. I feel safe in saying that if it can be distributed to the area they have it. Growler pours were available of about 5 offerings. The have growlers for sale or they will fill yours. No frills set up, beer offered on rows of metal shelving, and in coolers towards the rear. Impressive for the selection. Go here if you want a huge selection of fine beers from around the country and world.

Incredible selection of beers and a helpful/knowledgeable staff. The quarter point demerit is for appearance, since the building and shelving seem pretty old and not attractive aesthetically. That being said, everything is well organized and easy to find. There is always a great variety on the growler taps, with something to suit everyone's needs. I make it a point to stop into Oliver's every time I'm in the Albany area.

This place is great. Knowledgeable and very helpful staff. But the real reason to stop by is the selection. I live in the dc area, which is only a couple states away, so I was skeptical that I'd find beers that aren't distributed in my area. I was wrong. I found so much stuff I had to put beers back to stay on budget (I was on my way back from Vermont so funds...and space in my car was limited) and still walked out with 18 different bombers and 6/4 packs.
