Best places to buy (interesting) beer in mid-westchester?

We're looking for some out-of-the-ordinary beer to bring to a party tomorrow night. The Stop and Shop in Ossining isn't doing it for us. Where's a good place to go? We'll be going down to Queens so anything further south on the way would work too. Thanks!

  1. Whole Foods in WP has a good selection.

      Thanks! I looked on Beer Advocate, which is a pretty neat website, and they suggested, among others, Whole Foods and DeCicco's in Ardsley. Think we'll try for one of those later. I'll report back!

    2. Montrose Beer and Soda just north of Croton on 9A has quite a few different beers.

      1. I will make this very easy for you -- De Cicco's in Ardsley. They will fill grwolers for you. They have an outstanding selection of beers you only read about. The prices are fair. And the staff is quite knowledgeable. What's keeping you!

          Sounds great. I'm glad I asked because in a million years I never would have considered DeCicco's. I can't wait to see what they have!

            You will not be disappointed. And they usually have a Captain Lawrence beer on tap, to purchase by the 1/4, 1/2 and full growler.

        2. Ice cream - if I'm not too late and you're still in upper/mid Westchester, Captain Lawrence Brewery in Pleasantville - on Castleton St. has some great stuff - plus - there's beer tastings on Saturdays!
