Tiny little bottle shop in the Grand Central complex. I have little to add to other reviews - convenient, small but decent selection, quite a lot of foreign beers (less good for visitors!), friendly guys, scandalous pricing.
Been here a few times whenever passing through GCT. Small little bottle shop with lots of interesting stuff to grab. Probably over 100 bottles to choose from with some draft options as well. Friendly dude working there both times I stopped by.
Visited a couple of times over the weekend of Saturday 23/11/13.
Small bottle shop located in one of the shopping strips inside Grand Central station.
100 + bottles, largely from across the US with a few solid European choices thrown in and 6 keg taps where you can take beer away in a masonry jar, as I did a couple of times. These worked out at $5/6 a pint but you also had to pay for the jar as a one off (about the same cost IIRC).
Good service, the guy knew his stuff and chatted for a while with me.
If thereís one criticism, prices are way OTT, there were a number of US beers that I could pick up cheaper in London. Yes - itís Manhattan, but London is just as expensive and no way should I be able to pick up US beer cheaper 3,000 miles away east of the pond!
A very convenient option. I often stop in to fill my mason jar growler for a trip on the Metro North. The bottle selection is impressive but, as others have noted, the prices are very high. The prices on the growlers seem more reasonable, though. In general, the concept here is pretty cool Certainly worth popping in if you have some time to kill in Grand Central.
Very surprising selection here, particularly of Belgian imports and expensive BA stuff like Cascade, Bon Chien, etc. Lots of beers I wanted to try, but the prices were preposterous. Comes with the real estate, no doubt, but hard to justify paying that unless you just donít care.
A small shop in Grand Central that really is more marketed to commuters that folks living in the city. Growlers are, more often than not, very overpriced (as are the bottles, I guess). They do over little 16 oz mason jar "growlers" for folks to take on the train, which is pretty cool. I pass by here on my way to work everyday, so if I see something cool, Iíll bring a 32 oz growler the next day to get a fill, but itís really not the type of place worth going out of your way to visit.
The advantage of living in Sweden is that little can shock you when it comes to price. Given the location and the selection it is somewhat understandable. Made a choice of 4 bottles and each were available cold. Very friendly knowledgable service. I was very surprised to find it and it is a fun place to stop on arrival.
Small little shop in the Graybar passage in Grand Central. I visited near close on a Saturday night. As mentioned by others, this is a small shop that has a very well chosen selection of beers and taps for growlers to go. Prices are very high, though based on location and "convenience". For visitors this is a fun place to check out, Grand Central itself is worth seeing. For locals, probably only useful to grab a beer for the train.
