Great store this area needed a beverage center like minogues. Fantastic selection and people are alway friendly and willing to help, they put a value on customer service. The area needs more Family owned businesses like Minogue's. Great growler specials and always low prices.

I am very comfortable running in to get a growler filled while doing errands. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, the floors are clean, the lighting is bright, and it doesn't smell!! DH and I are big dark beer fans, and we can usually find a reasonably priced beer on tap. The turnover in beers is enough that every weekend, there's a new beer for us! So conveniently located too! Love this place! Welcome to Malta!

For five years I told all of my buddies that Malta needed a good beverage center and liquor store, my wishes have come true all in one location on Rte.9. The staff is always helpful, love the feedback I get from James at the growler station, they are friendly and go out of their way to try and help you. The store is clean and tidy and they always have an amazing selection of beers on tap. I do all of my beer shopping at this establishment and the fact that it is only a few miles from my house is a huge bonus. I usually get at least two growler fills every week and they have a nice club promotion going on right now where you save your receipts and get free pint glasses.

Having this store in "my own backyard" has been wonderful. It's a "candy store" for beer lovers and a regular stop on my way home every Friday. I have tried more types of beer in the last year than in my previous 40. The staff is friendly and always willing to help you find what you are looking for or offer suggestions. I've always loved the store in Saratoga Springs, but with this store two miles from my house, I'm in heaven.

I am new to upstate New York and was looking for a good place to purchase the great selection of local and regional craft brews. Minoges has a very good selection of bottled craft beers and several rotating local beers on tap. Friendly people and great service on growler fills. Plus its right on my way home from work - what could be better...

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. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

So glad to have Minogue's in Malta!! Great selection of Growlers and overall selection of craft beers. It is great place to find something new to try. They treat loyal returning customers great. And the place is exceptionally bright and clean. Must place to stop and see their selections!

I like the fact that they bring in visiting brewers for tastings and keep info on hand that describe the beers character so you have a pretty good idea what to expect from that brew.

The staff is is up to date on their supply. Keep bringing in the Green Monsta IPA. This is a great beer for watching the games.

The place is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, the selection is impressive but mostly I like the variety of kegs they have in stock and they have different size kegs (1/6, 1/4,&1/2) which is helpful if trying a new beer and you don't want to commit to a 1/2 keg.

Friendly, helpful staff. Lots of craft beers to choose from, by the case, or by the bottle. They even have a rotating selection of beers on tap for growler fills. If I'm ever in the area, I make it a point to stop in and at least get one of my favorites, and maybe try to grab something new that I haven't tried before.

In my previous review, I forgot to mention the "beer cave"... They've got a very generous selection of beers by the case and individual bottles all inside a walk-in cooler, so you can "chill out" while browsing for exactly what you want!

Also, their "growler update" emails are a great way of always knowing what's on tap at all times.

The only reason I haven't rated the atmosphere higher is because, although it's very clean and bright inside, it seems like it could use some character--something to make it stand apart from a regular distributor--to make it more an experience when shopping there, and not just another beer run.

This store is a great addition to the Malta area. The selection is fantastic. I love the growler selections because I can try out new to me beers at a reasonable price (the Red Hook Pumpkin Stout is awesome).The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The prices are fair. The store is clean and attractive. And the beer is ice cold. What more can you ask for? Keep it up!

Minogue's new store in Malta is a great new alternative. Good selection of both craft and import as well as the usual domestics. Great selection of draft for take away in growlers. Friendly staff, very attentive and try to learn what it is they are selling. Prices a little higher than surrounding beer stores but draft selection balances it out.

Minogue's in Malta has been open now for about a year, give or take a month or two.

The location is great. It's right off the Northway (Exit 12) on Rt 9 and easy to get to. A bonus for me is that it's about three miles from my apartment. The atmosphere is pretty standard but it is new and very clean. It hasn't acquired that dark dank smell some of the other older bottle shops have.

The quality of products is good. Everything seems to turn over pretty well. I would say that the way of merchandising helps out in that area. All the seasonals are up front and in one dedicated spot. Sometimes they will put seasonals and other beer that has been around for awhile in a cart and mark them down for a buck a bottle.

The selection is pretty decent and most craft beers can be found in the cooler that lines the inside perimeter of the store. There is a nice growler station that always has something new on tap and there is even a nice selection of glassware at reasonable prices. The store seems to get a lot of the highly sought after beers in stock.

I highly recommend if you are in the Clifton Park/Malta are.

This chain of stores is really improved since the latest addition of multiple growler taps. I have been going to the newest store in Malta and take advantage of there craft beer selections, with there weekly sales. The amount of craft beer in the store will keep me going back to try others for a long time.
