Pretty big store, warehouse-style. Beers are separated in two, International and American. Most of the beer is at room temp but there is a smattering of beers in the cooler near the growler station in the back. The aforementioned growler station has about 5 or 6 taps. Real good service from the knowledgeable staff. Selection was pretty good with lots of each kind. Worth a stop for sure.

Been to this place a few times. Located at the old Wegman's space on E. Henrietta Road
Atmosphere - looks like an old grocery store with aisles of beer instead of food. Aisles are delineated by geography, makes it fairly easy to navigate based on your tastes and preferences
Quality/selection - Selection here is vast, yet there is really nothing here out of the ordinary for the craft beer drinker. Good selection of domestics as well as British/German/Belgian imports. Seems like stock here is rotated very well, with a few exceptions, some out of date beer lingers on the shelves, so just beware of that. Another plus is that the shopper has the ability to buy singles out of 4/6 packs and the singles pricing is for the most part fair.
Service - when I'm at these places, I'm not in dire need of help and the guys who were working there were unobtrusive.
Value - there is a mix here, you can find some decent pricing on some beers and other beers are priced higher than the competition in the area. If you buy enough beer, it all averages out in the end, I guess.
Overall - worth stopping by if you happen to be in the area

It's a supermarket full of beer! Maybe 1/3 of the building is devoted to beers from outside of the US. The other 2/3 of the store is almost entirely devoted to US craft beers. There is a nice growler station, and a good sized section for home brewing supplies. If you buy the beers by the bottle (make your own 6 packs of individual bottles), they are definitely pricey, but if you know what you want, know what you like and can settle on 6 packs and cases of beers, it is reasonably priced. there are so many beers it is somewhat overwhelming. I was however disappointed in the lacking presence of some of the really sought after beers...

Selection: An incredible selection! It seems like if it’s available in NY, then it’s available in at BOTW. They often get rare bottles and much more of them than other stores I have visited in other states. Very rare/limited releases are held up at the front counter. I also appreciate that you can make mixed 6 packs from a single brewery. There is also a great growler filling station!
Service: The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, even about beers they do not sell at the store. I had great talks with Ryan and John who recommended some delicious brews.
Price: ALL selections are sold by the single bottle, 4 or 6 pack or by the case so one can mix and match at will. If you make a mixed 6 pack from a single brewery, then there is no mark up. However, individual bottles are marked up. I have a hard time gauging if a store is considered expensive as alcohol is always cheaper in the States compared to Ontario.
All in all, this is a fantastic store with a great selection and very helpful staff. Prost!

Fairly expensive but the staff are very knowledgeable and always willing to help you find something or to make a suggestion on something new to try. If they don't have what you'd like they are also willing to order anything you would like.
Beer that is on sale, in my experience, is usually expired or about to expire.

Huge selection. Beers and ciders from all over the world. Prices are reasonable but sometimes a bit high. Any beer can be bought as a single. Employees are pretty knowledgeable. Sometimes has tasting as you walk in. Several beers on tap available for growlers.

Good selection but they put off ordering many new brands put out by brew labels they
already get. I go out of state and find a much better selection.
Plus their prices are too high. Anything on sale has usually gone bad.
Also they never make any attempt at customer recognition. I've been going there for years and yet they never even nod hello.

Been here several times, now it's in an old Wegmans and branching out. Awesome selection, very knowlegable staff, but the downside of this place is always price. They are nicely divided by region, country and style. They also will order specific hard to find stuff and they are very customer-friendly. On one trip I had a personal shopper....They kind of have the market cornered and are not afraid to take advantage of it. Wegmans and other grocery stores are now catching up, maybe that will help to drive down some of their outrageous mark-ups...

visited this and the other BOTW with some fellow BA's on a mission to land some bottles we couldnt get in buffalo. our mission was quite a success.
approaching the store by car i was amazed by the size of this place. seems to have been an old wegmans grocery store. walk in and the pretty much the entire store filled with rows of beer. about half the store devoted to micros and half imported/ foreign beer. coolers on one whole wall that seemed to stock nothing but micros. maybe 12 or so taps, if i remember correctly, for growler fills. a big sign showing size and selections of kegs. also had a whole section devoted to homebrewing and winemaking.
very nice overall selection, including the likes of firestone walker, goose island, pretty things, sixpoint, dogfishead, ithaca, uinta, south hampton and tons of nice locals. also a decent selection of nice belgians.
they seemed to have an abundance of 2009 GI- bourbon county which I gladly took advantage of, but absolutly no 2010. i asked the guy cashing me out and he said the distributer made a mistake.
all in all, a worthy stop if your around. about as good as the other BOTW. imo, worth the trip, ill definatly be back.

Living in a small town I'm always looking for beer stores that carry brands I can't get locally. BOTW fits the bill nicely. The place is very spacious with the shelves clearly marked with the regions of the beers. Nice selection of micro and craft breweries. Brands like DFH, Stone, Lagunitas, Ommegang, Great Divide, Great Lakes, Rogue, Troegs, and many more. Unbelievable selection of imports. Individual bottle prices tend to be a bit on the high end but it is a small issue as the convenience of mixing outways the higher single bottle price. My only moderate criticism is that the shelves on occasion are incorrectly labelled with either price or description. Beyond that it is a great store and well worth a stop if you are in the area.
