I routinely stop by this place at least once a week ( I work in the neighborhood on Rivington st). They tend to have great beers, but some of the stuff, especially IPA's, are out of date. On the other side of things, their import selection is really excellent. They have many great Belgians: Drie Fonteinen, Hanssens, De Ranke, DuPont, Gouden Carolus, St. Bernardus, Rochefort, Boon, De Dolle, De Cam (from time to time) etc. Norway, Sweden, Italy, Germany, England, Japan, and the Netherlands are also well represented. Overall they have an excellent selection just watch out for old bottles of stuff you would not want to cellar.

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.
