I visited New Beer Distributors in the heat of the New York City summer, so ducking into a shady, cool hole-in-the-wall store was quite a welcome happenstance. The place extends quite deep into the building it occupies, but the back half is full of BMC dreck. Up front on the sales floor is where the real treasure lies.

They have a row of freezers towards the entrance if you want your beer cold and immediately, but I skipped past them and headed for the shelves. I was amazed at the selection, with each shelf boasting an impressive lineup of brews. There were different sections categorized by nationality. The largest section was definitely the assortment of domestic beers, but they had quite a few cabinets dedicated to Belgian beers as well. I was able to find most of what I came to find and they were all reasonably priced. I asked the staff about some other brews that I was interested in and they were very helpful, letting me know when their next shipment was and offering to sign my e-mail address up for alerts on new beers.

It's definitely one of the better beer stores I've been to and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who will be in the New York City area and is looking to pick up some quality craft beer. I know I'll be going back as soon as I can to collect even more great brews.

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.
