We're not all fortunate enough to live in the same neighborhood, or even the same zip code, as a really good beer store. Luckily, there's the internet! The online beer store Half Time Beverage might just be our new best friend and ally in our quest for hard-to-find beers.
The Half Time Beverage website boasts an inventory of 1800 beers, including 100 different styles from 40 different countries around the world. That's a lot of beer to choose from! We really appreciate all the different options for searching through these beers. We can sort by brewery, beer style, country, hop type, color, or even alcohol percent.
Their selection seems pretty good. We saw several beers we can't find here in Ohio, including some from Oskar Blues Brewery, Cisco Brewery, and Pretty Things Brewery. We'll also keep an eye on this site for limited selection beers that often get quickly snatched up from shelves as soon as they're released.
Your best options when ordering online are getting a half-case (12 bottles) or a full-case (24 bottles) at one time. But here's the really awesome part: you can create your own half- or full-case from single bottles, four packs (when available), or six packs. That's a lot of sampling opportunity!
The prices seem pretty average for what you'd pay in a regular store. Shipping adds to the overall cost, of course, but if you live somewhere without access to good beer, this is still a small price to pay.
If you happen to live near Poughkeepsie, New York, you can visit their storefront and peruse their vast beer selection in person. Judging by how long we spent just wandering around their website, we can only imagine what an experience this would be! Visiting in person also gives you the chance to fill growlers from their taps or order whole kegs.
Have any of you ordered from this company or visited their store? What are your impressions?
