Wow. That's all I can say.

I stopped in here on a whim as a last stop on my way home, I'd already gotten plenty of beer on my trip but this place had some good reviews so I thought I'd give it a chance and check it out. I wish I spent less money earlier on because the selection here was phenomenal. I found Sam Adams Chocolate Bock for $7.99 on close out! There were tons and tons of locals, american craft as well as some great imports. They even had a chimay gift set with all 3 beers and a chalice - I would have bought it if I didn't just get a st.bernardus set earlier on my trip!

Anyways, point is they have amazing stuff no matter where you're from so check it out.

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.
