PERFECT SCORE! Bottle shop that has 12 taps, and allows flights. Order the cheese plate. It is AWESOME or any of the other food. Beer is always rotating and seasonal. You can’t open bottles there but they are priced for take home not on site. They got growlers too and the beers are sorted by GEO. Check it out, good hang out.

This is New York City’s version of Bruisin’ Ales. (If you don’t know what Bruisin’ Ales, get thee to Asheville as soon as possible.) smallish beer store in the east village with a ton of American local, regional, and national craft. Everything is available as a single which is awesome. It looks a bit like a New England Packie from ghe outside but when you realize you have the run of the place in additon to 12 shelves they also have 7-9 coolers. Prices ad what you would expect for NY. They also sell growlers with 12 beers on tap. They have tables and you can also buy a pint to drink as you walk around the store and thy have a limits bar food menu. It’s nice to visit places that are all about beer.

First off, let me just say that I am a complete sucker for this format of store (primarily a bottle shop, with taps for on-site pints and growler fills). Many of my favorite spots in the US are of this genre, they always seem to attract cool beer people. Slightly below ground, the sotre has coolers all the way to the back on one wall, and rack of beer up front and to the other side. The register / tap station is in the middle, and there are a couple of smaller tables behind. I was happy with a Ballast Point smoked lager and a bit of shopping. Really good vibe, really nice guy working. Selection is certainly below that of New Beer and Whole Foods Bowery nearby, but this place is worth a stop to chill for a few minutes.

88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

very well organized cold cases. always something good on tap. they have good weekly events. they’re really focused on american breweries, though have a good selection of some imports. they’re clearly working hard to keep their shop’s offerings current and interesting. friendly service.

Small store with lots of coolers a handful of taps and some food which i didnt eat. Really nice and helpful staff. Smaller inventory than some other stores in Manhattan but it’s got a nice vibe. Worth stopping in at.

Stopped by here for the first time this past weekend. Essentially, a bottle shop with seating area, taps, and flights available of good beer, get it?

Friendly neighborhood beer shop. Couple shelves of imports and eight fridges of beers for take-away specializing in regional micros. Small well thought out tap list. Staff was friendly amd helpful and usually solid with recommendations. There are a few tables in the back to drink beers on-site. They also do growler fills and flights. Prices are moderate, neither cheap nor over the top. Actually on the lower side for the rarer pours.

Small, fairly well stocked store that offers both bottles and drafts/growlers. Nice setup. Very clean and well organized, and a decent selection of bottles in the cold case. Selection is pretty good, with a few harder to find bottles but most of it is fairly standard. They have about 12 beers on tap, fairly good selection, and a small area in the back where you can sit and enjoy a pint or a flight. Staff was pretty friendly. Prices are higher than New Beer but not outrageous.

A nice beer shop/drinking hole in the East Village. Lots of coolers and a growler/tap section up front. A few small tables at the back where you can enjoy whatever you’ve purchased. Bought a few cans and enjoyed a pint of IPA while I was here. I like the move I’m seeing in NYC to having places serve as both bottle shops and casual pubs. This does both pretty well.

This place is one of my go-tos for growler fills now. Bottle selection is good, with a large cold case selection. Get some less common stuff on tap but the bottle selection is usually pretty standard fare (with a few special release selections, like from Founders). Decent prices for this part of the city and a bit closer for me than WF/NB. Also nice to have a pint while you’re there, and they’re generous with letting you taste what’s on tap before buying.
