I submitted this location as a possible site and was glad to hear back from John at BA so quickly (within 24 hours) authorizing it for addition.

Let me start by saying that this is a small-town independently owned (family, I believe) grocery store that services rural Allegany County in rural Western NY and is patronized by people from numerous small towns in the area. That being said, they are a pretty typical grocery (not a Tops, Kroger, Food Lion, Piggly Wiggly, Mega-lo Mart etc.) store that has a decent selection and variety of food, etc. until you get to their beer department.

When this place underwent a renovation a few years back they really did the beer up in a proper fashion. There is the normal selection of BMC stuff, but interwoven throughout is a great variety of NY craft (Southern Tier, Ellicottville (which is only about twenty miles away), Ithaca, Ommegang and all the big hitters of the national craft scene. Stone, DFH, Troegs, Brooklyn, Smutty, Flying Dog, Rogue and so on. They allow create a 6 pack of decent variety (and stuff that doesn't seem outdated) and will frequently have good seasonal selection (Genny Bock in the spring is cool), plus all the normal seasonals from big and small breweries alike.

In that this store and its sister in Wellsville, NY are 90 miles from either Buffalo or Rochester and it's 12 miles from my driveway, it's my #1 stop for beer shopping in the area.
