Not as big or fancy as brewster yet totally satisfactory experience. Rep knew the bottles what was fresh and labelled almost all accordingly. Kept supplying me with great samples while worked through vg draft list. What fun.
A solid store, not sure it is more interesting than Half Time or the lines, certainly the selection is smaller, but lots and lots of uality offerings and mostly in fridges versus the high likelihood of falling upon a past its due date ale at Half Time. The grocery itself also seems like a nice operation with its tight, filled up and busy aisles. Plenty of gems there, so a great stop on the way back North from the Big Apple. Not cheap, though.
Stopped in here on the way to NJ after a release at Captain Lawrence. Interestingly, the first thing I saw when I walked in was the CL Birra DeCicco. First impression is that this is like a smaller Whole Foods, complete with the hot food bar. Made my way to what looked like a small area full of beer, but man was it full. They cram more variety into that area than some stores do in their whole space. 8 things on tap, including some one-off locals. Prices seem a touch high, but there’s a lot of stuff here that can’t be found very easily. The fact that there was a blue cheese tasting while I was there? Excellent. Out of the way for my normal travels, but next time I go CL to NJ, I’ll probably stop in again.
Wow I could have sworn I rated this before. Anyway this is one my favorite places to stop when in NY. Place is kind of like an italian Whole Foods in a way that it is a high end grocery store. Has a nice buffet and salad bar, but what makes this place special is that it has one of the better beer selections I found across the country. Usually have some really solid beers available in growlers and a few jewels from Cigar City, Founders, Goose Island, and an eclectic selection of imports. Definitely worth a stop if you are up around Westchester County.
I was really surprised when I entered this store and saw the selection I did. Lots of Stone limited releases, Captain Lawrence, plenty of the more interesting beers for sale throughout NY. Not a huge selection, but a cut above the rest of the places I’ve purchased beer from in Westchester County and definitely the place to go to if in the area looking to buy beer. Foodwise, they have lots of gourmet food for sale.
Stopped by on our way to Captain Lawrence today and was surprised to find this top rated spot in a far back corner of an upscale suburban market. But jeez, well worth the small detour. They have a different selection from what you normally see in the city. There are more rarities and better representation from notable breweries. The "beer guy" was present and was obviously a beer lover. Go prepared to spend a lot even though the prices are pretty good. It will be very easy with their choices.
Supermarket feel in suburban New York. Beer in the back, groceries everywhere else, cheese stand right there. Awesome selection, on tap locals plus bottles from all over, some secrets still tucked way near the back of a shelf, turnover isn’t the fastest. Help from the beer guy,very fair prices on some stuff (Belgian standards), prices higher on others. Will stop here whenever in the area.
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.
