My initial visit was last week when I decided to hit up most of Rockland's beer stores. Hillcrest is located in a shopping center so parking is not an issue. The craft beer aisle on the right-hand side is currently somewhat haphazardly arranged (I was told that the goal is to get more organized), but personally I kind of like the notion of not knowing for sure what's in that box over there or on that shelf a few steps away. The selection is good, particularly given the area and the limited amount of space available. Prices are very competitive; a BeerMenus search will demonstrate that Hillcrest’s prices are either the lowest in the Hudson Valley or pretty close to it. And the BM listing seems to be well-maintained.

By far the best aspect of Hillcrest is owner Al and his wife. Extremely friendly, engaging and helpful. I was having trouble locating a couple of particular bottles that I wanted, but she readily started helping me look for them. Not only did she find those two, but she also pointed out a Singlecut that I didn’t even realize they had in stock. And Al and I discussed various beer topics for at least half an hour. Overall, a very pleasant experience. I’ll happily stop by again anytime I’m beer buying in Rockland.

Excited to visit this spot after seeing the high ratings numbers...

Sadly this place is a home of dusty, dusty beers....it does have a huge selection...but, and this is a big BUT, it is disorganized, messy and a home of large amounts of severely out of date and DUSTY cans and bottles....seriously, they have a bunch of Finbackand other high quality brews but from 2017?? WTF??

I don't understand why store owners would allow their merchandise to be in such a messy, out of date and dusty state...makes zero sense to me....looks like this lace survives on cases of natty lite and gives very little attention or worry to the good stuff...tread very carefully here, check the dates my friends! ....and the dust...oh my...

The owner Al is a great guy. Every time i walk in he greets me with a smile and remembers what beer I'm looking for. They have a very large selection of craft beer, and offer many different styles from each brand. They also have a large selection of Belgian and German beers. All in all this is great place to shop for beer and I highly recommend it to anyone who either lives near here and hasn't visited or someone who is passing throuh the neighborhood looking for some great brews.
Cheers!
