This is one of this bottle/growler stores that doubles as a bar where you can grab pints and bottles and drink on premise. Very relaxed and laid back vibe, obviously, and conducive to hanging out in small groups and splitting stuff. Small bites are available for food. Prices are probably a bit high if your carrying out, but on the cheaper side for bottles/cans compared to what you would pay in a normal bar. Draft options are just ok, though they usually have at least two or three relatively new local offerings, so thereís been a new tick for me every time Iíve visited.

I have been here about two times, and while I would not venture to say anything really bad about it, I was not impressed by the tap selection either time. I was also not thoroughly impressed by the bottle selection (which to my mind had some inflated prices). The ambiance of this place is, however, pretty nice. There are large tables, and you can just grab board games to play. Maybe I just came on days when the tap selection was not as well curated. In any case, I find that Bushwickís The Sampler has a better tap selection and probably a more extensive bottle selection as well at comparable or lower prices. That said, the bottle prices here are better than you would get at most bars, but worse than what you would get at New Beer Distributors or Whole Foods. I would go back if I was in the area and need a beer, though.

nice place, dece3nt bottles & draft selection, nothing really standing out on tap, had a reinhards IPA, ok. Lots of bottles. Perennial was new to me, saw a spider bite. 12% had some representation, shelton seemed light. Worth a stop

Reminded me of BierKraft, in terms that its a pub AND a store...what a great combination. They claim over 500 brands (maybe more like 200) for sale, and have 16 taps of goodness, at decent prices. They do offer 6 ounces sampler. Thee beers for sale are interesting, with rare stuff from Perenial, Cigar City, Alesmith, Marble and so on. The place was packed for the last game of the Euro Cup finale, and it was packed. Limited menu but interesting sandwiches, cheeses, charcuterie. Service was friendly and efficient. A great little place for shopping and a pint.

Very cool place. You can purchase a bottle and drink it in shop. Great tap list for growlers, flights, or a glass. Happy hour until 7, $3 pints! Free wifi. Very friendly staff. They also do the occasional tap takeover.

Itís a bar and a bottle shop or place to get bite. They have the perfect combination of what matters about beer...a fantastic selection, spacious comfortable seating in a no pretense atmosphere, and the best value of any place I can think of to drink. You can get a half pint for a few bucks while you browse or have your growler filled. Or you can sit for hours and drink from the ~12 draft lines and 10 full fridges (room temp also available) while paying fair bottle shop rather than bar prices. The owners work the bar and know beer really well. The selection is good enough to satisfy almost any serious beer nerd and has been steadily improving since they opened. The drafts are often heavily NY or regional specials. Frequent events that arenít near as crowded as other of the NYCís top spots make it a standout in the NY Craft Beer scene to me.
