So, this place is actually a grocery store. They have an amazing selection of beers in the back of the store with about 40 cooler doors filled with great craft brews. The real secret of DeCicco's is the tap room located in the front of the store. They have a world-class tap list including Hill Farmstead and other legendary breweries. The bottle selection IN the tap room is where they carry the jems. Their prices are a little high ($13.99 for a 12oz Barrel Aged Bomb! and $32.99 for Barrel Aged Eclipse). But this place is not to be missed. I have unloaded close to $1,000 since I found this place two months ago.

This is DeCicco's largest store and it shows! The entire back of the store is beer. They have 50 doors of cold beer along with about 30 feet of room temperature Belgium beers. This is the store that never lets me down when I am looking for something unique. The staff is great with Vinny, Andrew and Greg. They have a large craft beer bar in front with always a great selection. About every other week they have breweries that come in to do beer events. I've had the pleasure of meeting so many brewers here over the year it really makes it special. This is the best of the best!

I am the wine manager at a package store in Brookfield CT. Over the past couple of years, I have turned my energy to small batched spirits and small batch beers

We have a problem bringing in some of the quality beer to CT. I wont go into the politics behind this.
With any retail organization, customer service always sticks out.

In this store, VINNY the beer man stands far above most retailers. Besides his knowledge, he always demonstrates his compassion for beer and can help someone who is a novice to beer, as well as someone who is a ciceron

VINNY is a super person. Top me, he makes the difference. Even if DeCiccos carried only 4 different beers, he would be abl to discuss all the pros/cons about the beer. HE makes the difference!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Holy Trinity of beer in Westchester- DeCicco’s Armonk, Ardsley and Brewster. I’ve been to Armonk and Ardsley several times but never to Brewster… on my first visit there, I got lost a couple of times. The massive mall location sure doesn’t help!

This DeCicco’s is rather gigantic, bigger than the other two locations. The bar is right upfront as you enter, to the left after the checkout registers. It opens at 11am and it is a fine place to grab a beer and chill, no pressure. They typically have some rare brews on tap; not as rare as Armonk but good stuff nonetheless. I had Goose Bourbon County (regular and barleywine) during my second visit there…

The beer section is at the very end of the store, can’t miss it. It is truly massive. They have a mile-long cooler with all sorts of beers, and tons of cases with bombers and singles haphazardly open on the floor by the cooler wall.

Aside from all the big-name stuff from Stone, Dogfish, Allagash and every other beer name in America, I saw North Coast Old Stock 2009, the Midnight Sun imperial and barrel-aged releases and possibly the best selection of Mikkeller and Evil Twin on earth. Also Aventinus 2004-2009 vintages for your pleasure.

They have one or two beer guys here working the floor- once he asked me if I needed help, the second time I had to reach for them to get a pack of Bourbon County (which they kept on the back, sorry I got the last one).

Needless to say, this is a beer must in Westchester.

This is the largest selection of any of the DeCiccos and one of the largest selections in the area. 40 coolers worth of beer as well as many shelves and a bar with 10 taps and a nice bottle list.

At the bar I had my first ever crack at Cantillon, a 375ml bottle for 20 bucks. A solid deal in my mind because I've seen places charge as much as $50 for a 375 ml kriek. (I'm looking at you Eagle provisions).

The staff is incredibly friendly and can be found making rounds between the coolers and the bar. They are extremely knowledgable and friendly.

All and all one of the best beer buying experiences a guy could have.

Craft beer bar inside high end grocery store. Long straight bar on far left wall seats about 20 with a dozen small tables and 2 large communal tables and a small outdoor patio. 18 well assorted beers on tap, and around 1000 bottles and can in coolers two aisles from the bar, and two counter pressure growler filling stations. Bartender are all very beer knowledgeable and accommodating. Considerable food options: pizza, sushi, buffet, and deli. Great beer bar; great beer store

This review is of the Brewster New York store only. There are several more DiCicco's down the Hudson valley of the state.

A rather upscale food market featuring a huge selection of craft beer along the entire back width of the store, well over a hundred feet, in coolers, on racks and stacks. Good provision for mixing sixpacks, although the single bottle prices tend to be rather high.

During my fifteen minute perusal, a stock clerk who knew his beer was available for consultation.

Came back a second time a few days later, but they were closing (8:30 PM on a weekday) so I did not pick up the new issue of Evil Twin Biscotti Break that they had on sale for $15, and did not get to check the quality of their checkout service.

Definitely one of the better beer stores for selection in all of NY state, worth a stop anytime you are driving I-84 in the Brewster area. Easy off and on.
