Visited this store on way through Albany after cabin trip. The store is a left turn off the main road and has a fairly small parking lot. Beer is the door in the corner, liquor/wine door to the right.
THe beer selection is to the left with 4 rows of shelving. There are also 4 taps runnning to fill growlers, they only fill their own. NOthing too exciting here Smittwicks, and some large regionals (I forget which) but all were readily available in bottles.
The shelves are labeled geographically with large signs hanging from ceiling. Countries and various US states mark the breakdown. There is a great selection of Belgians and also some fun French and other random countries. The US stuff is a great mix of NY and regionals and a solid representation of other bigger craft breweries. Good Middle Ages, Victory, Weyerbacher, SIx Point selection.
Service was very friendly and helpful, not sure about beer knowledge but they were good guys. Offfered free beer glasses to take, but the selection was ALL dusty Lite and AB pints, I have enough glasses that I dont need another like that.
WOrth a stop if in the area for sure.

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.
