About Half Time


"Where's the best place to buy beer near me?”

If you live in Dutchess or Westchester County and you’re looking for the best beer store in your neighborhood, we’ve got you covered. Half Time Beverage has a beer store in both Poughkeepsie and Mamaroneck, New York right in the heart of the Hudson Valley craft beer phenomenon and surrounded by so many outstanding craft breweries and cideries. We feature over 4,000 craft beer and cider selections from over 800 breweries located in over 50 countries. For those who don’t have a Half Time Beverage beer store around the corner, you can buy craft beer online at https://halftimebeverage.com and have the beer delivery right to your door. If you’re searching for the best IPA of all time, chances are we have it. We’ve got thousands of IPA’s, lagers, porters, stouts, hefeweizens, pilsners, sours and a great selection of non-alcoholic and gluten free beer as well. And, if your a cider enthusiast, we stock an amazing selection of ciders from our local Hudson Valley area and around the globe.

We've even won a few awards for our jaw dropping selection. Ratebeer.com ranked us the Best Bottle Shop in New York, and Top 3 Beer Store in the World. Not too shabby. Oh, and by the way, we only sell craft beer and cider. We do not carry wine or spirits due to the unique liquor laws in New York. But that's a good thing because our focus is on craft beer and cider.

Half Time Beverage is one of the few stores where you can grab one beer or cider at a time and make your own six pack.

Here's a little history... We opened our first Half Time Beverage beer store in Poughkeepsie, New York (Hudson Valley area) back in 2002 and then a second beer store in Mamaroneck, New York in 2013 (Just 35 minutes from New York City). Craft beer enthusiasts come from the surrounding six states not only for the selection of craft beers and cider, but our exceptional staff as well. Each staff member participates in our extensive training program as well as private brewery tastings and industry seminars.
