I live close to this place, but rarely buy beer here. About six months ago a 6/pack of Southampton Double White was $8.99. But they have under gone renovations and upped the price to $11.99, plus upped the price of every single beer there. It used to be good value, but now it is one of the most expensive places to buy. Since the start of the renovation the have increase the selctions greatly, and have some decent stuff now. Soon they will have about 20 taps going. If the prices are high and they bring in middle of the road beers like they have been, I probably wont be enjoying the tap selections... This place has potential, I hope they see that too...

I lived walking distance from this place, but ended up going there only a few times. First, I think it is quite over-priced. Sometimes a six-pack of something not so great will end up costing upwards to $15 dollars. Singles of Mikkeller IPA go for $8 in this place (though I have never bought them). Second, the selection is really not that great. Sure I could get an expensive beer that I never had before, but most of the reasonably priced stuff Iíve had more than once. Third, some of the beers have been there for years. For example, I looked at the Uinta six-pack they had in the fridge and it was from 2008. Overall, this place ainít a bad place, but in the neighborhood you are really better off going to the Key Food on Flatbush.

Clean, well lit, and atttractive when you walk in. As you head toward the back, it starts to get all sloppy. The is a growler station, decent selection, reasonably priced. The rest of the beers that were there were fair to middling in value, some were reasonably priced, some overpriced. The service was decent. Not bad at all. I felt like this place was a work in progress, and may improve with age.

I have been here a few times in the last year, and I have seen a marked improvement. The owner is very friendly,and tries to get his hands on whatever you ask for. I kind of jokingly asked him to get a micro brew that is not widely distributed, the next time I went in, months later, he told me that he called the brewery, and offered to drive to Indiana to pick up 100 cases for NY, they laughed at him. The point is that the enthusiasm to satisfy customers is clearly at this establishment, and it is nice to know that. As others have mentioned, nothing rare here, but they are paying enough attention to carry beers like Captain Lawrence, a bunch of standard belgians, and several good american smaller breweries.

When there is not much in the way of direct to consumer beer stores, Brooklyn Beer and Soda is your best friend. They bring beer down to a level that you can appreciate (not like those Manhattan snobs and their "wine"). While not the most knowledgeable staff, they do leave their computers on ratebeer.com to answer any questions.

This was one of the stores I sold beer to during my experience with Union Beer Distributors. The place is brightly lit and very clean. There are only a few racks in the front with single bottles, and some six packs. Nothing too rare, just the general craft found in the NYC area. The place is huge, with high ceilings and a gigantic layout. The majority of the store is actually stacks of cases, which he sells lots of. Itís mainly wholesale, and the prices are pretty cheap. Really good place, with a nice owner. Good place to go for a six pack at a good price when in the area.
