sneaky good spot. well laid out (by style), offering growler fills not available in package (bonus) and anxious to educate and please. Guy on staff (Saturday) was very knowledgeable and helpful. If you're in the area, this is THE spot to buy your beer. No shelf turds, anything 'close' to out of code is discounted. More retailers should practice this.

Randomly stopped into this place while on a short trip to Watertown, NY. Shop is not too big but does well with the space, decent fridge selection, growler fill options and a small walk-in humidor. I hit mostly the bottle selection on the shelves and found it very favorable for the distribution available to me in the D.C. area.

The shop was not busy during the afternoon and the customer service was excellent. Clerk was very knowledgeable and assisted with my upstate NY/NE brewery education on what to try.

Prices were good to standard. They had solid selection of Alesmith beers which was a pleasant surprise. Stocked up on a wide selection of Maine Brewing beers along with some Middle Ages beers from Syracuse which all have been tasty.

Will definitely stop back in again if I am in Watertown again.

Gave this place a go after finding it on my way through Watertown back to Ottawa.

This place is in the basement of Arsenal Liquor and Wines, and it seems to be fairly well put together. Not an awful lot of atmosphere, the shop is small and there really wasn't much going on there when I was in.

The place is laid out by type of beer rather than by brewer, which sort of threw me off, as I am used to searching by brewer.

Selection is decent, but it could be better. The big plus for this place is that their stock is fresh and checked. There is competitor in the area where I have found beers well past their enjoy by dates still on the shelf. That was not a problem here.

Prices were reasonable, though I was a little irked that an advertised special had "just ended" conveniently though their flyer said UNTIL the end of the day.

All in all this place could become a regular stop on the way home after time in NY. It has a good selection, and I appreciate the time taken to rotate the stock. I hope they take the time to expand the brands and labels they have a bit more and put a bit of pressure on their cross town competitor.

UPDATE: Went back at end of September 2014...wow, these guys are really pulling things together. Amazing choices and great prices. A definite go to spot in Watertown and only a short jaunt across the border.
