Giant warehouse of goodies. Wine, cheese and lots of beer. Tons of other items as well but honestly we're here for the beer. Great selection although a bit pricey here and there. Could easily spend an hour or more perusing over the selection. Very helpful staff, but also willing to let you browse at your own pace. The fridge is especially cold so try not to stay in there too long!

Find it a bit overpriced. The customer service is pretty good. But when I do decide to go, it's for the selection and hopes of finding something I haven't tried.

This is my go to beer store. I have been going here for over a year. They have a nice selection broken down by state and country. I haven't even started on any of their beers from outside North America (and there are a lot). Their web site does a decent job listing what is available. They Tweet out when new beers arrive, or when there are tastings. They have a state of the art growler system with a really good selection. The "vibe" is not as great as a store that just sells beer (with a bunch of neck beard guys to help you). They sell gourmet food, coffee, cheese, etc. And they sell beer. They still sport a huge selection and you can buy singles (which is what I usually do).

Nothing in the area really competes in terms of selection, rotation and notification of new beers.

Not the best selection I've ever seen, and in fact seemed like somewhat of an afterthought to their wine-and-spirits selection, but the best I saw in town nonetheless. They list what's available in-store with prices online, so I would highly reccomend checking out the website before making a special trip, as there weren't too many limited release or hard-to-find beers. If you find yourself in the area, or don't know what you want and seek options, this place is great.

Outstanding beer shop (and much, much more) with a knowledgable and helpful staff. My first stop and frequent stop every time I'm in Buffalo.

Good visit in Dec 2014. About 25 min from drive Niagara falls border crossing and maybe 20 from Peace bridge for my Canuck brothers and sisters. In my opinion the best selection in the area although the furthest of the majors from the borders. Great selection of Belgians, Mikkeller, Evil Twin and very nice USA regional representation. Staff I met were friendly but clearly not as knowledgeable as Village Beer market. Still way more selection. If you only have time for one stop this would be it for me.
