This is definitely the best beer store in the area even though it is really a supermarket. They have what ever you are looking for and if they donít have they get it for you just ask, This place is worth a trip.
Tons of bottles (the biggest selection in NY actually), a few taps (which are all properly and regularly maintained) and tons of cheese, with many varieties available to sample. The dude who orders the beer is a certified beer geek. He knows whats up, and thatís why every ipa in the store is ordered as fresh as possible and are always refrigerated. Also, all the beers are tucked away in the back of the market so no sunlight will ever strike these bottles. The shitty macro lagers are not on display as are the rarities and micros. You can buy growlers and sample everything on tap. Be warned, youíll spend a lot of money here.
Great place. Staff was helpful. They went into the back and got a pannepot reservation for me. Chatted with the beer mgr for a bit. Great selection and cheaper then halft time and beer world. Will be my new go to spot.
Had my second visit to De Ciccoís yesterday to pick up some Sixpoint and Narragansett cans while weíre up in the area. The first thing I went to was the growler station. Iíd gotten a few of these in trades in the past, but never actually seen the selection myself. There were a few different beers from Captain Lawrence as well as an interesting hoppy beer from Sixpoint.
The setup is pretty nice, with a guy sitting behind the counter ready to fill growlers. He was extremely fast filling the growler and while I didnít have any questions about their beers available for growler fills or anything else in the shop, I get the feeling that I would have had available help if that were the case.
Selection was pretty nice. If it werenít for the growler station, Iíd have this at more of a 4.0, but having that number of available (and often relatively obscure) beers right there for either 32oz or 64oz growler fills was very, very nice. Other than that, pretty good import selection with a nice selection of Belgian stuff. Quite a few available lambics and gueuzes, which is always a plus.
Overall, definitely a place that I will frequent whenever I am up in the area.
Wide selection of bombers, growler fills, singles and packs..hard to imagine a store with a better selection of rare offerings crammed into such a tight space..had ample supply of goose island bcs..prices were pretty good..but hey one has to expect pretty high prices for limited supply offerings..heard a few people complain about wait time at growler fill station while I was there..Wasnít asked for help but the beer guy might have been out..a worthy destination..interested to see how other locations compare..
One of the best places to buy beer I have ever seen. Beautiful supermarket, akin to Whole Foods but nicer. Awesome selection. They pack a lot into what seems like a small space. Lots of hard to find stuff. Prices were reasonable, on par or maybe a little lower than many other places. Some items were overpriced, though. The growler station is excellent, about 10 taps, nice and clean, like the rest of the store. Good place to get something to eat also. I wish Iived nearer to this place.
A beer lovers Utopia! This place has a great selection of brew! The best in the area! The store was a little tricky to find but my beergut led the way! Great food selection also. Lots of Cheese! And they will sell you a growler of Captain Lawrence Imperial if you need that fix and itís not Friday or Saturday. Friendly service and the prices are not that bad. My new party supply outlet! Bewwwwwp!
Flat out rocks. You have zero excuse to skip out on this place if youíre anywhere nearby. Selection of great locals and hard to find domestic and imported craft stuff, check. Growler fills of great brews with free samples, check. A bounty of outstanding quality shelved and prepared foods of all types, check. But above all is the service and attention paid to their customers. Chris and Joe were both very hospitable and gracious in every way. These guys went way above and beyond to exceed my ( and my boys who were there) expectations and they have earned a loyal customer for a long time. Hats off to the DeCicco family for this gem. And by the way, the prices on most things are very competitive. I have full confidence that Iím getting value for my dollar at this benchmark of a beer store. These guys should train others on the craft.
