This place my have a lot of bottles, though outside of the impressive Italian and Belgian sections, not a lot too exotic or that canít be found in other places. Itís a warehouse which is great for breweries bad for bottle shops. The day I visited was in the mid 80ís and it was just as hot inside. Prices in NYC are ridiculous enough but I would never spend money at place that treated their product so badly.

What has been said, best prices in NY state I imagine and will necessarily have stuff you want to have whether you have 2000 ratings or 100. Probably not so many bottles (less than most of the big middle and west NY state stores probably), but incredible quality. There are still a few beers I expected to find like saison díťpeautre, but they werenít to be seen in the other stores Iíve been to neither. I bought over 300$ without a double and I swear itís cheap.

The best beer store I have found yet in the United States. The selection was unbelievable. All styles available and organized neatly and logically. Prices were decent. They have a few live taps so you can fill up growlers. The store is conveniently located, too. Just hop off the subway at Spring Street and walk a few blocks East. I canít wait to go back to this place.

CALL AHEAD to see if they are open. Pretty much sporadic hours but they do usually close at 6pm. Almost definitely closed on Sundays. This is a warehouse in the ghetto about 6 blocks south/downtown from Bowery Place Whole Foods. Walk into the small entrance and there are stacks of beers, mostly singles, with an amazing selection. Almost everytime I can here I find something of interest. This past visit I found GI Lolita and GI Madame Rose though they were $14 a bottle. Selection is mostly divided into countries: England, Belgium, France, Netherlands, Italy. Great place to find country ticks as well if you are looking for some oddball ones. Ukraine, Russia, Latvia, etc. Prices are a little higher than Iíd like but finding odd rarities makes up for it I think. Very different selection vs. Bowery Whole Foods. Very little overlap so go to both! Service Iím sure is fine but I rated it highly because no one comes up to bother you and ask if they can help. No, I donít need help. I know exactly what I want. Thank you staff for ignoring me, I was able to take my time here without being harassed.

Long narrow, dark warehouse feel to the place. Most certainly a distributor warehouse type set up. I was really impressed and surprised by how friendly, knowledgeable and attentive the service was. What with the bullet proof glass, the general seeming dis-array of the place, and more than anything how hard the guy helping me was working. In between doing a million of things, he was constantly checking on making sure I was doing OK, and helping with suggestions. The selection here is pretty intense. I wandered around for about 35 minutes and just kept seeing more and more cool beer. They do singles of everything, and there are even 4 taps for growler fills. Overall, the best bottle shop I hit in Manhattan. I would like to thank the FAA/TSA - your liquid policy probably saved me $200.
88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

This warehouse/beer store carries very carefully selected bottles from many craft breweries of interest. Moreover, their prices are definitely the cheapest I have ever encountered in New York state, sometimes being 3$ to 5$ under the prices of American Beer Distributors for the same 750ml bottles. Thatís quite a difference, and makes you wonder how much American Beer is ripping you off. Great selection, relatively well-presented for this setting, a very good beer store when in Manhattan.

Awesome bottle shop. Lots and lots of selection in a huge warehouse. The feeling is a bit disconcerting as you watch people leaving with their cases of Miller while youíre perusing the singles section forobscure imports, but they seem to serve both the macro and micro market well. Located on the edge of Chinatown, this is a canít miss spot when in New York. Prices seemed quite reasonable as well.

Prime location in Manhattan the place looks like a small warehouse where theyíve stacked-up beer. Small and very unique beer store. Paying to the lady behind the secured window is so New-York. Memorable shopping experience. The selection is excellent although relatively small. I mean where in New-York, youíd expect the biggest of the big. Go to Half-Time for that. Prices are excellent. I would not have expected to find the best deal on beer in Manhattan. On par if not cheaper than Half-Time and about 25% cheaper than American Beer Distributor in Brooklyn. A must.

Basically a warehouse right down the street form Whole Foods-Bowery. Really just a bunch of shelves stocked full of craft beer at very good prices for this part of the city. Couple harder to find beers, but what makes them special is the size of their selection. Service was very attentive as well.

[as most know, the prices at this place have gone through the roof, and hte selection, IMHO, is just average compared to the other great stores in the area - I no longer shop here) Looks like any other Chinatown warehouse from the outside, so much so that they need to advertise that they are open to the public with a rather large sign - once you get inside, though, you realize this is one hell of a beer store - they have everything that is available in New York, and are more than likely to have anything newly available before anyone else - make sure you look carefully, because you never know what might be hinding on some of those out of the way shelves - prices are excellent - on my most recent visit they had Allagash Odyssey for 12 bucks, which is about 3 dollars below the average - the area is a bitch to find parking in, though - go one block east to allen street where they have metered parking; there is almost always an open spot - must stop if youíre in New York.
