I went here while visiting family in town. Try to restrain the fright of seeing piled cases of Milwaukee's Best and Busch laying everywhere. Venture to the heart of the store and you will be rewarded with cases of Victory, Anchor, and DFH at excellent prices. There is also a very good selection of bottles, including some that I have never seen before, but the bottle selection is not quite as impressive as some other stores that I frequent. Despite being busy and occupied, the service was helpful and prompt. Visiting here will definitely become a ritual of my future visits to Binghamton.

Updated: They do now offer a mixed six/singles section in the back of the store. Also have had some interesting growler options lately too. 4 taps are listed on a board in the back.
Not sure how I haven't reviewed StBM yet.
Good selection for the Binghamton area, but not even close to what you can find in Ithaca. It also seems this area gets releases about a week later than Ithaca too.
A lot of space devoted to macros, but the standard selection of Belgian and craft bombers and 6 packs. Some of the harder to find options I noticed on my last visit included Founders, Horseheads, Hoppin Frog, and Ballast Point.
The two things that really stand out are the service and the prices. The guys working the register really know their stuff, make good recommendations, and are knowledgeable about upcoming releases. Prices are low - typically the same or even lower than Wegmans.
Worth a stop if you are limited to Binghamton. Best option I have found in the area.
