Passing through Queensbury, I had heard about this place and figured I'd give it a shot. It's not a bad option in this town. Definitely got the vibe of a typical 'beverage store' for anyone looking for beers, ciders, meads, sodas, chips and other party items. I did see a humidor but I'm not a true cigar fan so I didn't glance in that direction. I found a singles section close to the growler station. Though I did purchase what I picked up, I did notice the prices seemed a bit heavier than Hops n Barley, which seemed odd to me. Not a bad place, but part of me thinks I'll stick to Hops n Barley which has better prices and closer to Rt 87.

I'm headed down to Minogues to pick up a growler. Hmmm, what should I get? Switchback Ale? Maybe I'll try something else? There's so many choices, I guess I'll just have to decide when I get there. There's so much that's available at Minogue's Beverage Center in Queensbury, it's hard to make a decision prior to arriving. And, talk about convenient, I can be there and home in a half an hour! See ya!

The biggest plus is the service. The staff, for the most part, is a bunch of friendly and Knowledgeable guys. It is a little bit pricy but if you look around, you can find the deals. The selection is good for the area- not very populated. Tom, Josh, or Dave are the guys to ask for.

Knowlegeable staff, excellent selection, reasonable prices. Can't beat it. Location on Route 9 was great, easy access from the highway. Beer cave was perfect temperature and the inventory was vast. Even found some nice craft options I haven't seen before.

Very helpful and fun staff, knowledgeable and great selection. There are always some good specials taking place and the end caps offer some variety and good pricing. Great rotation of growlers as well.

Would like to see some tastings in the future if possible.

The staff at Minogue's is always friendly and knowledgeable. The selection is far superior to any other local outlet or grocery store. It is a real asset to our area to have a locally-owned, family-run store like Minogue's.

The selection of beers on tap for growlers has been expanded and is constantly updated for those that like to try different offerings. It keeps me coming back!

Great selection and the staff is not afraid to open another register when it gets busy. Very accommodating with bottle return and assistance, if needed, bringing a purchase to the car. My favorite activity is finding unadvertised specials in miscellaneous end caps near the registers. Nice selection of local and regional brews and staff is informative on upcoming promotions.

A great all around beer store (including the other 3 locations). Great selection, great prices, and great service. Huge beer cave. Plus a ton of beers on tap for filling up growlers. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Employees are always very helpful and friendly.

Minogue's is a good company run by great people. I get growlers refilled at this location regularly and they're always quick with answers and service.

I can even vouch for Mr. Minogue himself, as I met him one day when he was helping with growler fills! Visit them some time and enjoy their incredible selection of beers, ciders, and soft drinks.

Minogue's is a great resource to have in Queensbury. They have a great selection and a helpful staff. The growler station is updated regularly, and I appreciate how they usually have a local brew to choose from. The craft beer scene is quickly emerging in our area and minogue's is at the center of it. Beyond the craft beer and growler selection, they have good pricing and selections on domestics and other more macro offerings. Definitely worth a stop.

Just recently been frequenting Minogues. More than impressed by their selection of bottled craft beers compared to some other bottle shops I've been to. I can always find something new I want to try, and the guys are pretty knowledgeable and helpful. They also have great specials.
My Favorite part is trying the different tap beers. They carry a pretty big selection (12+) and the prices, to me, are great. Plus, they have been carrying beers from a new local brewery started by a couple of friends of mine, and it gives me a chance to get their beers without having to drive to the brewery, which has odd hours.

They run a quality operation there and the service is very helpful! The selection of their bottled beer is the best in the area and you can't beat the prices either. They have a cold selection that is great! The recent growler section is my favorite... They just have to find a way to let us taste the beer before we buy it. Other than that; definitely helpful to have in the area and get on their email list so you can see all the brews coming!

Minogue's Beverage Center in Queensbury, NY is solid. They have many taps available to fill growlers the choices vary quite a bit. They could take a little emphasis off of IPAs, but that's what many in the craft scene are into. Their prices are resonable for the area, maby a $1 or 2 higher, depending on the beer you are buying. Overall, it's a good store with the newest selection of beers.

Minogues offers an extensive selection of beers at an affordable price. Staff is always friendly and willing to go above and beyond for customers. They also have can/bottle return which can be very helpful. You can usually always find a good deal here. (Queensbury location)

Nice selection of craft brews in bottles and growlers. Sales staff know their beers and do well at suggesting NYS craft beers.

The best craft beer selection in the area. Always have a variety of new beers each week and have different promotions. Employees are friendly and always willing to help you out. Growlers are also available with rotating taps. Beer is reasonably priced for the area and you can always find something different to try.

Minogues is a great place in queensbury ny. It's on the way home from work, and they have a wonderful selection of beer on tap. Love to bring the growler and fillitwiththeirfrequentlyrotatingselection.theyalwayshavelocalbeers and good ipa'son tap. Their staff is humorous and often engaging. Especially mike, he has helped me out on a few occasions. By far the best place to find delicious beer in the glens falls area and points north.

I think it is hop head heaven. They have an extensive selection of craft beers both local and national.
Their growler filling station affords the opportunity to sample great brews on tap without having to travel.
Conveniently located and plenty of parking.
Only improvement I can think of is they should chill a larger variety.
