Had to take a special trip to NBD during my trip to NYC.
Looks like a hole-in-the-wall from outside. When you enter, it appears as if you're in someone's beer garage. Concrete floors and a ton of metal shelves. Lucky for all of us, these shelves are overflowing with beer.
A few isles worth of American Craft Brews and plenty of imports as well. Mix anything you want. Selection was nice, picked up some Founders (Double Trouble and BS), Nugget Nectar, Sculpin, 21st Amendment and some other brews I can't buy in Rhode Island.
The Sculpin was past due and I've read about some dating issues on this site, but all of my other beer drank prime.
The help was awesome. I know what I'm looking for, but asked for some brews I can't find in my home state and the help picked out 20 or so beers to choose from, many of which I was targeting.

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.
