What a place! Go first for the insane selection of Balkan, Greek and Eastern European foods. Had a few WTF moments seeing items Iíd never expect to see in the States. The beer selection is pretty interesting too - a wide range of E European macros, from all over. Some odd finds like Beerlao and Serbian beers. And a wide selection of sixers of American craft beers. Some írareí bottles too. Not everything in the store is well tended, there are old/out of date bottles everywhere. But for me, it is a must visit. And you should too if you want to find some beers and foods that youíre unlikely to see anywhere else, especially in one place.

They have a very nice selection, they advertise 644 different bottles. Also some 12 packs of craft, mostly Magic Hat and Dales but it always changes. They also stock seasonals as they are released. Nice variety, constantly changing. Make sure you check the dates, and NEVER buy anything from the shelves. These beers have been cycled out of the coolers, and have been cooled and then warm, and are usually out of date. Also great selection of artisnal cheese, olives, smoked meats, olive oils, vinegars. All in all a cool store. Prices are decent, $2-$3 for most singles, and $10 - $15 for most bombers.

They have some good beer, but the prices are somewhat ridiculous.

EDIT: With the renovations to Tri-boro Ice, Iíd say Euro Market has the best variety of imports but is a distant second as an overall bottle store.
ORIGINAL RATING: This is the best bottle store Iíve found in Astoria. Most of it is refrigerated, singles, and primarily European. The cheese selection is fantastic (I havenít tried any meats, but there was a nice variety). Thereís not really anyone around to help, and they didnít seem to know much about beer. The reason I donít go here more often is that prices at some of my favorite beer stores are routinely a few bucks cheaper per bottle. That being said, this is a fine alternative in Astoria.

Another vote for Euro Market. Prices are (for NYC) are decent, they do singles on everything (just grab one out of a sixer!) and you can find a lot of interesting brews from the Baltics. Wouldnít go out of my way for the place, but if youíre in the area is certainly worth a visit. Right under the N train, big red and blue sign, you canít miss it!

Finally found an interesting beer store in queens. This place is a european supermarket, that embodies a lot of the eastern european/balkan (esp. Greek) culture of the surrounding area.
The beer selection is not enormous, although Iíd say its on par with some of the Whole Food Markets in the city. Almost the whole selection is held in refrigerated deli cases in the back of the store.
Thereís plenty of American craft beers (Victory, Troegs, Blue Point, Brooklyn, and lots more) but the area where this place really shines is (predictably) the European imports. A whole case full of German, your basic Belgian stock (Lindemans, duvel), Russian (lots of cyrillic labels I canít read), Polish, Czech, and probably more.
They even have a few glassware pieces for sale.
Visit the nice cheese and meat section if you want to pair your European beer.
