Fair prices on a ton of great beers. Agree with the other poster who says it's the best place in the Wedge to buy beer.
The employees are very helpful and fun as well.
Space is very nicely laid out with all the brews easy to find.
Why go all the way to Beers of the World when this place has so many awesome beers available?
Bombers and 40s available as well. All they need to add are paper bags with the store logo so you can sport your 40 in style while sipping on your porch or in your driveway.
So great even your Nemesis will want to shop here!

Tucked away on a corner in the lovely Southwedge of Rochester is a great and wonderful place called: Nathaniel Square Corner Store.
I found this place about 5.5 years ago and have been going these ever since.
They stock beers that no one else around does. They also have ( 4 ) beers on tap that can be filled into growlers that they also sell.
The best place to buy beer and snacks in Rochester and in the Southwedge! - Awesome staff, Clean fun place to shop with a unique country store ole time style - Love this place!

A small joint located just down Alexander St. and across from the Colony bar.
The Corner Store is definitely an underrated gem of the Southwedge section of Rochester. I recently bought a Stone Levitation Ale from this place and noticed that it hosts tons of microbrews from all over the country. If you want to check availability before visiting, their website is updated on a regular basis, and you will be bound to find whichever you seek at the Store.
Beers come in 6-packs, 4-packs, 0.5L bottles, singles (12oz). Matching beer glasses are available if you're into collecting (I got one for the Stone). If you're a college student at the University of Rochester, I would highly suggest this place as to its wide selection of beers, foods, and its convenient location.

Great little place to pick up a six pack near downtown. A pretty good selection of Craft brews to go, great lunch counter, and other connivance items.
The best thing they do though is the 12 beers of Christmas, two custom selected six packs of craft brews one to enjoy every day of the event. I hope they keep that up.
They used to do some great tasting events over at Johns Tex Mex next door. Those were a lot of fun, I hope they come back.
They certainly don't have everything but they have enough, and are close to City natives.

More than just a convenience store, this place has an incredible variety. Over 187 different kinds of beer. The entire back wall is a cooler filled with Flying Dog, Ommegang, Sierra Nevada, and a whole bunch more craft beers. They also have a selection of Macros and 40's. The only place in the neighborhood where you can get most of these beers. The place looks really nice too, with hardwood floors and old shelves from a library. This is definitely the place to go to buy beer in the South Wedge.

This is located in the South Wedge neighborhood in Rochester.
Atmosphere - this is a convenience store with a big cooler full of beer on the back wall.
Quality and selection here were pretty good, they had a lot of NYS brewery's offerings on hand (Ommegang, 3HB, Capt. Lawrence, Brooklyn, Lake Placid) as well as domestic usual suspects (DFH, Stone, Founders). I was a bit let down by the sparcity of their Belgian/German export selection, but I did find some domestics that I haven't been able to find elsewhere. Service is where this place really shines. Got the opportunity to chat beer with Bob, who appears to be their beer conneiseur, very friendly and very knowledgeable about beer and the products that they carry. Prices are maybe $1-2 higher on some items than other places in the area, but not too exorbitant. You also have the option of breaking down 4/6 packs into singles, which is a plus. They also had 4 or 5 beers on tap available for growler fills. Overall, I was impressed with what NSCS had to offer and next time I am in the ROC, I will be sure to stop by. Recommended.

Corner store in the Southwedge area. A small place with a nice atmosphere and a good selection of quality beer. Stopped by because they were the first I heard to have Sixpoint in the Rochester area. It was my first trip, I will definitely be going back. They had a great selection of brews which aren't available in the other "big" stores around here. Talked briefly with a few employees, you could tell they definitely beer people. Food smelled great and had a line at the counter, unfortunately didn't have time for lunch. Great place, would highly recommend. Tweets updates of stock iis an excellent plus. Please keep that going!

Nice little corner store, most of the beer is refrigerated. Some beers that Beers of the World didn't have but found the selection to be less than BOTW. All solid but there was no Southern Tier Warlock and there was missing a few Founders. The guy at the cash seemed somewhat knowledgeable but not too much. I like the vibe of the store though.
