Branching Out Bottle Shop Offers A Wide Range Of Unique Brews


Selling beer by the bottle, 6-pack, the case, growlers and kegs, Branching Out Bottle Shop has one of the largest selections of craft beer in Central New York. The business branches out from the typical selections offered by other retailers. “We take trips once a month and pick out different styles and different brands from breweries that don’t typically make it to this area. We do the beer run for you,” says owner Carissa Monahan. “And we try to target the stuff that you can’t get in Syracuse, otherwise,” adds Joel Monahan, owner.

Selections are rotated often with about 40 new beers a week. Branching Out Bottle Shop sells individual bottles so you can try without having to buy larger quantities.

A new beer that owners Carissa and Joel brought for our hosts to try is a breakfast beer flavored as a maple blueberry pancake from Ellicottville Brewing Company.

They are also carrying brews made for Saint Patrick’s Day. Willow Rock has a brunch beer flavored with oatmeal and Recess Coffee. Fifth Hammer is offering a stout flavored with coffee, similar to Guinness but is a little creamier. And Resurgence has a lighter Irish breakfast ale available flavored with maple syrup.

Branching Out Bottle Shop offers specials a couple of days a week. Tuesday is Brewsday. If you make a purchase on Tuesday, you will be entered to win one of their specially selected craft beers. On Wednesdays growler fills are 25% off. And “Fill It Up Friday” offers customers who make a purchase on Thursdays to be entered to win a free 32oz fill of your choice to be filled on Friday.

Branching Out Bottle Shop is located at Township 5 in Camillus. They’re open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am to 8pm. Sundays they are open from noon until 6pm.
