Check out our new website!

We keep an updated list of promotions and sales, events and tastings, and (if we can keep up with how fast our growlers move!) a list of what's on tap at either store!

New Arrivals (Again!)

This week we have two beers by the Ellicottville Brewing Company: their American Pale Ale, and their Blueberry Wheat Ale. Welcome to Albany, EBC!

Also, the first Chatoe Rogue Estate Beer, Dirtoir Black Lager, is here! Made with all Rogue-grown ingredients, Dirtoir is a liquid homage to livin' slow and doin' it yourself!

First New Arrivals Post of '10!

Flying Dog Raging Bitch Belgian IPA - 8.3% abv - A nice, filtered take on what is becoming a very popular style. Estery yeast notes calm the American hop bitterness and add a new complexity that American IPAs are not used to seeing. This is meant to be a Canis Major beer, at the price point of $10.49 for a 4-pack, however, since it is Flying Dog's 20th Anniversary brew, it is priced like their regular beers, $9.99 for a 6-pack.

Lammsbrau Organic Dunkel Lager (Germany)

Lammsbrau Organic Pilsner (Germany)

Also, don't forget to come check out the newest feature of our Draft Beer Center: the BLOWOUT Draft Line. We promise to always have one tap devoted to an inexpensive, high quality growler fill! When our suppliers need to move a keg, we make sure to negotiate a price that will put a full growler in your hand for $6 or less!

Currently it's Magic Hat's Odd Notion from their Fall Variety Pack: a Belgian Chocolate Stout. Mmmmm!
