If you have been to the Poughkeepsie location this new spot will bring no real surprises.

Selection is huge, with well stocked aisle after well stocked aisle of quality beers. 20+ taps for your growler filling needs. Huge cooler wall in the rear. You will find everything beer here, including glass ware, gift baskets, home brew supplies. If its available in the general area, this place will have it.

My question is will they be able to move enough beer to make this giant location profitable. With every gas station, super market and convenience store seemingly stocking a decent array of craft beer, this sort of out of the way location seems kinda iffy...we will see

This has the vibe and feel of a big box store. The selection here is amazing. Found everything that I wanted and more. Plenty of local and national breweries represented. The prices here tend to be a bit higher than other places around it, but I suppose that is the premium paid for one stop shopping. Certainly the place I would go to if I am in the area.

Awesome place. Great beer selection, singles for sale- make your own 6 pack. Home brewing section, meads ciders. Beers on Tap for Growler filling with free tasting before committing, Some beers were a little pricier, Prairie Bomb was $11 and $8 down the street at DeCicco's. Overall great place.

Great selection and service. I love the ability to buy virtually any beer as a single. My complaint is that prices are high but maybe it only seems that way to me as a visitor from MD.

Big selection but the prices are at least 25% more expensive than other comparable stores. They don't carry anything that special that couldn't be found for less money somewhere else. No way id buy a beer from this place. I walked out empty handed based on price alone.
Nice little homebrew supply area though - just for essentials. I wouldn't get major supply, but big hop selection.

The store is tremendous. Still aisles with empty shelves, but it's only been open for a few weeks now. Has potential but still pricey like the other New York stores. For a guy from CT this place will be a go-to since it's only 25 min away. Still wish selection was a bit more vast for the sheer size of the building. The entire back wall is cooler doors. Glassware and goodies from breweries available which I thought was cool as well as beer gift baskets. Staff was really friendly and knowledgable. My favorite part of the store is the 22 taps for growler fills. Especially the first I've ever seen, THE 16oz Growler!!!! I love this concept for a growler that size. Perfect sampler and price point (around $5-6).

Overall I will return and hope to see other new things as the store continues to grow.

For such a massive store, the staff is not knowledgeable or helpful at all. Great selection, though.

This is a grocery store for beer. I've only been there a couple of times and haven't spoken to the staff, so i can't rate their knowledge. Well organized place with a great selection.

Hands down my favorite beer store, if not favorite my place on Earth and you're not likely to find a larger selection of beer anywhere. Huge sales floor with knowledgeable and friendly staff on hand to assist the novice to the most experienced craft beer enthusiasts. Large, rotating tap selection available with growler service and there are often free tasting events on weekends. This place also has craft soda and cigars although I only ever go there for beer. If you can go to only 1 source for craft beer ever again, this is the place.

I first became aware of Half Time in Mamaroneck about a year ago. Half Time boasts the "Largest Selection of Beer in the World" and based on my experience that is probably an accurate statement. The store has the feel of a big box store with whole 30 to 40 foot rows dedicated to beers from "Belgium," "Germany," "Craft," etc. I have been able to work my way through more than half of the top rated 100 Germany beers on this website because of their huge complement of offerings, as well as craft beers from top breweries in more than a dozen states and countries (and counting). It is true that Half Time is pricier than a standard beer distributorship, but it is important to recognize that this undoubtedly offsets the cost of the overhead involved in maintaining a remarkable selection of beers.
