I'd been meaning to drop in on this place for quite some time now and I'm glad I did.
The F and V trains are easy to get to for me and them there trains take you but 2 blocks away from this establishment.
One issue/negative with this place is that it was too warm. Granted, it was an 80+ degree day outdoors but there was no temperature conditioning at all. Another issue is that there isn't much of an already cold selection of beverage. Yet a third issue is that the checking out process was mildly annoying: the lady behind the glass/counter/register took her sweet time ringing up the hand written list that the employee on my side of the glass wrote up for her to check out.
A not great to lousy selection of six packs available.
As to the pros.
Ahhh the pros.
The guy on my side of the glass was among the most helpful help I have gotten. Told me about what came into the store today and asked me if I needed anything.
Prices range, as most places do, from bad, to reasonable, to cheap.
I found most things to be on the reasonable and cheap side.
The selection was wonderful (for large bottles and single bottles). Saw many brews I've never seen in person before.
Go to New Beer!

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.
