This is the place to go if you need a 30 pack of Bud Light at a good price.
As far as BA standards for a place to get beer?
Eh.
I found myself in the neighborhood and decided to give the place a try.
Turned out to have a pretty decent selection. A few offerings each of Belgian, German and English brews. Saw some Fuller's Vintage ale for sale. Delirium, Sam Smiths, St. Peter's, Ayinger.. many of the usual suspects.
Not too shabby in the American brew department (Allagash, Ommegang, Victory, Stoudts, Long Trail and more) Nothing overtly exciting but certainly enough to get the job done.
Prices were on the higher side of the spectrum for things not Bud, Miller or Coors. 750mL bottles of Ommegang ran $8 and over; most six packs were around $10. Quite a few dusty bottles, quite a few bottles past expiration dates.
Trying to actually purchase stuff was a bit of a nightmare. People were buying their lotto tickets and that took quite some time. When I finally got to the register much of what I was trying to purchase hadn't been entered into their computer system, or wasn't scanning right, or was scanning as a case instead of a bottle...
I asked about the price of Rodenbach Grand Cru and the guy at the register offered Allagash Grand Cru as an alternative when I was leaning away from the $9 Rodenbach... This would indicate a lack of knowledge regarding the products being sold.
There's no need whatsoever to go out of your way to get to this place, but if you find yourself in the area it's probably the only place around that carries anything tasty.

I travel to Long Island a couple times a year and was looking for a place to get some goods to take back to PA. Greywulfken was kind enough to tip me off to this little gem of a beer store. Located in a small strip mall, Beer City is quite unassuming and inconspicuous. Upon entering the store, I was greeted by several friendly staff. A good bit of the store is comprised of stacks of cases and about a dozen doors to cold beer access. The rest of the store is made up of shelves of crafts and a dozen or so craft beers on tap (I am presuming for growlers). The craft bottle selection was excellent. I picked up some Union Jack, Biscotti Break, Sixpoint Global WArmer, Maine Zoe, and Noel de Calabaza(2012 issue). There were a lot of Belgians as well and prices were reasonable. The single bottle selection was a bit disorganized but if you took the time to look around, the gems can be had. A cool place with good staff and great selection. I will return
