I had heard of this little hidden away gem a while back but am rarely in this area. However I was in the hood and decided to drop in and check out the space. Respectable line up with plenty of goodies, on par with many of the more established haunts.
Outstanding service from the cat who owns the place, and his all killer no filler beard. I happened to be in house enjoying a fresh draft as I perused the expansive cooler selection, when something magic happened... a special shipment. A distributer rep was in house, answering a trouble call, when we all saw it... 3rd box down, labeled founders. You bet your sweet ass it was! KBS,ohhh my bastard luck! Right place, right time. He was staunch on 1 per customer, good beer advocacy in my opinion and if you think otherwise go waste your breath in the forums. Not bad surprise afternoon haul. Can only hope this becomes the norm when I visit again.

Very cool spot in New York City's East Village neighborhood. Felt totally welcomed and comfortable almost immediately upon walking in. Knowledgeable and friendly staff happy to talk beer with you. Nice tap selection with growler service and a large variety of bottles available both in and out of fridge. Will definitely return to this place when I can.

Great selection of beers covering many styles. The staff was really knowledgable and was able to point me toward beers that matched the style I was looking for (I know he was right on, because many of the beers he pointed out were already on my list of favorites). Small selection on tap, but very carefully selected for quality and diversity.

Great selection, about a dozen rotating taps. Cool staff.

If you strike out here, Proletariat is right around the corner. I've yet to strike out here. The combination of local, national and international bottles coupled with growler fills gets the job done right.

Love this spot.

Kind of a small place but if you live in the EV this is a great little local option with very good variety. Guess I'm a little spoiled but the size of my bottle shops in Brooklyn and elsewhere.
