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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
Pretty cool little store front that is kind of hard to find if you don’t know what your looking for as it is in a basement like unit. Nice selection for both growler fills and bottles to go. Few tables in back where people were drinking flights and eating cheese. Would be a regular if I lived locally. They did not have a ton of hard to find stuff, but I have a feeling that the good stuff flies off the shelves. They had Cantillon at one point today according to their Facebook page, but was well gone by the time I showed up.
I walked in and got very excited about the selection until I found out that there was no on-premise consumption allowed except what was on draught. So I had to pass up a dozen beers I would rather drink to have a mediocre IPA. Why not just charge a corking fee and let me sit down with what I really want to drink? Atmosphere was a little cramped but pleasant enough. (My "Selection" rating is based on what I could choose from for drinking on premise, because that’s what I came for.)
Good store with a very nice and large but not inspired or noteworthy selection. You won’t get bored. If I were living in the neighborhood I would certainly shop there as regular spot. The prices are pretty good and it is part of the new wave of beer stores that deserve to be supported.
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.
Nice little bottle shop, nothing crazy interesting or rare but a nice cozy space to drop by. Nice help from the ladies working there, some interesting rotating taps and alright single bottles focusing on East Coast beers. Lots of stuff missing from shelves that they ’normally’ have. Nice enough spot.
