This beverage store is located right along the Jericho Turnpike, in a really busy section of it. And it is kind of tucked away from the road, so slow down, in order to make the turn into their small parking lot. Upon walking in, the craft beer immediately appears. There is a quite a bit of bombers and 4-6 packs sitting at room temperature, from the likes of Spider Bite Brewing, Founders, Goose Island, among others. And then further in the back of the store is the chilled craft beer, as well as the BMC products. As someone else noted, it seems that some of their beer sits for a while, so try to check dates on IPAs if they are printed. Friendly staff, a little expensive, but not a big surprise for this section of Long Island.

got some top quality craft beers selection here, ive found some real hidden gems at this place.helpful staff and the european lady behind the counter has suggested beers to me twice and each one was superb.bit of a tricky location,right before the entrance to the seaford expressway but well worth the awkward drive.

V: great vibe walking in because all you see is densely packed craft beer. Small front area is jam-packed with tons of craft, and a narrow aisle is similarly tightly filled, leading to a back area with more of the same plus plenty of cooler doors filled with craft. Where the hell was the BMC crap? Didn't even notice.

Q: as a couple of folks noted, there are lots of ancient beers nestled among the shelves, so you'd need to be wary about beers where freshness is your goal. They had some stuff I knew was way past its prime, but it was really cool to see it again - I just wouldn't buy it - lol...

S: made some entry level small talk with a friendly female clerk at the front - for some reason I took her age and slight German (?) accent as a sign she'd been working there a while. She took notice of what I was buying and on her own recognizance came over to me with a suggestion. When I asked her about a personal whale (Wulver), she took me right to it. Very nice, personable, and friendly.

S: craft beer eye candy. Tons of shit from all over the place - old and new - weird stuff, obscure stuff, common stuff - but again, be wary about the freshness of some products - that said, I was very impressed with the range of beers offered. Selection on par with the top stores I've been to on Long Island (Beer City, Huntington Superstar, and Shoreline).

Prices: Probably a little pricier than my usual haunts, but that's reflective of the general area. Figure a dollar more than the average store.

Cramped little store off the Jericho turnpike with a driveway that could be very easy to miss. Small parking lot made it difficult to get out on what I presume was a busy day when I went.

The beer selection was better then many of the Long Island distributors I've seen but I feel like they could utilize the space better somehow.

The staff was friendly enough and willing to help. They greeted me as I walked by the counter asked if I found everything all right etc...

The pricing was a little high but really nothing to complain about. If I lived in the area I would happily frequent the store.

I'm a local and have frequented this business for many years.
The standard for service and customer satisfaction is exceptional and has even improved a bit lately.

Without reservation, this is the best in class when it comes to beverage establishments.

I love the fact that you can mix a six pack in this place. I do wish I knew how much the items were ahead of time though. You can find a listing of their offerings on another website and do comparison shopping, thus making a list before you go also.

Friendly, Knowledgeable staff will guide you to good choices and not to the stock they are trying to move.

This is my new favorite place because of their selections. Their pricing is hit or miss, do your research before going in and you will have a great experience. Do not impulse buy unless price means nothing to you.

This is a great beer store, but it is slowly going down hill. I do think it is nice place,the selection of beers is what i am worried about because a lot of their beers that do not sell do sit on the shelves and you can see the dust just collect on the bottles.

The staff is my opinion is very helpful and friendly. They did loose Kevin which is sad.

The growler selection is pretty good. Just wish they would put there 2 unknown gems on tap. Overall I would most likely make a trip out of the way and go see what they have.

Nice place, pretty good selection, the staff is quite helpful and friendly, sells single bottles, only problem I have is no prices are listed, I go to the register completely blind when I go and some are a bit inflated, but within reason. The growler selection has a few gems usually whenever I go too. I'll go again but I really wish they'd label their prices.

The lady at the cash register is always there, they put the good stuff right in front of the register so she's always watching you pick stuff out, so if you're a heavy browser who takes a while to make a pick like me you're probably going to feel slightly pressured.

This is a great beer store! They've got a big and impressive selection with pretty much anything you'd expect to see in terms of craft beers and Belgians, including a bunch of brews I haven't been able to find anywhere else. The staff was very helpful - he even went out of his way to warn me that one of my selections was especially pricey before I sprang for it - and seem pretty knowledgeable too. If you go to their website they often have some really amazing coupons, so I got a big haul of high-quality beer for way less than I would have paid anywhere else. This is my new favorite distributor and I doubt I'll need to go anywhere else much, if at all, now that I've found it.

Although this is a bit of a drive for me I decided to go prompted by a friends reccomendation. I found it to have a very nice selection of beers and very helpful staff. The woman who either owns or manages the place came up and was very helpful in assisting me in looking for other beers that matched my tastes. Prices seemed to be very reasonable and anytime you can get craft beer for a decent price AND get to use a coupn then you're ahead of the game. Certainly worth a drive and a look if you are in the Nassau/Western Suffolk area. Enjoy!!!

Stopped here on 3/11/2010. I'm only 15 minutes away and I thought I should drop by and check it out based on reviews here.
All of the styles are represented from Belgian to German to American Craft. Very nice selection down the entire right side of the store. The store itself is a bit cramped, but the selections and service will make up for that. The cashier had asked if I needed help in looking for something or would I like any recommendations. She also asked if I'd like to sign up for their email list and told me to log onto the website for coupons and discounts. I believe she went out of her way by offering me their business card and stating that because I don't live in the immediate area I should call them if I'm looking for something in particular. She stated that the selection I'm looking at is only 1/3 of the beer that she could order. I thought that was an excellent point to explain to a customer.
Overall, I will definitely return here for my purchases. It is much closer than Shoreline or Big Z to my home and the selection is just as good. No growler section except for the standard Blue Point growlers in the fridge.
Last note on this and I'll move on...no pricing. I had to ask for a couple of prices, which kind of bugs me because its not that I can't spend the money, its just that if I'm searching for a "good deal" on something, how will I know it unless I ask?
