When I was down in NYC visiting for a couple weeks, I definitely had quite a few whole foods to choose from to check out for brews. I chose this one because of the location to a couple other places I wanted to check out.
At first I was kind of skeptical after walking into the normal store and finding hardly any beer inside. After walking down Houston, I discovered that there was a whole other part of the building dedicated to just beer and wine! Jackpot
I walked in and they had a nice semicircle of taps lined up. Apparently it was Oskar Blues day or something because half of the taps were from them. Also had a rep there from the company giving out samples. Good first impressions right there.
They had some very large shelve on the left side of the store dedicated to bombers of a large selection of breweries stacked up at least 5 rows high. On the back wall there are open cooler with a ton of six packs, and further down they have shilled bombers sitting in the coolers.
There are a large amount of breweries represented on all of the shelves including locals like captain Lawrence and a few Southampton. Cigar city 750s were also quite numerous.
A lot of selection of imports as well, like Nogne O and tons of Belgians are very well represented. Basically, if it is distributes to NYC, then you will likely find a few or many offering from the brewery available at this location. Very nice and diverse selection of beer at this location.
I wish I would have rated this back when I visited, but overall this is definitely the type of place anyone would want to check out. A big diverse selection of offerings from many breweries; at a good price for being the fact that it is in the middle of Manhattan haha.
