It's a warehouse so atmosphere doesn't really play a part in this place. And most of the employees are behind a pane of glass in a booth so service isn't really part of this place either. But it's a wholesale/retail depot; those things aren't the point. The point is the selection. More hard to find beer than I've seen in any one place before. I only allowed myself a mixed 6 pack since I knew my vacation fund was running low and that I'd have to be carrying any purchases around the city. A little on the pricey side but it was the perfect opportunity to take advantage of NY distribution and pick up a bunch of goodies that I can't get in MA. If I didn't have to catch the bus home that afternoon I could have spent hours (and hundreds of dollars) here.

This is a curious place. Total warehouse feel. If you can hunt a staff person down, they range from snappy and unhelpful to warm and inviting.
Don't go for IPAs, unless it's something you know was released recently - the warehouse isn't temperature controlled, and their IPAs don't clear the shelves very quickly.
Some good values can be found, but overall found their prices to be average to pricey.
Worth stopping in if you're in the area, and it makes for a nice beer haul stop along with Whole Foods Bowery and Top Hops, both very close by.
