very very pricey. owner is rude and disrespectful when asking him any questions regarding a release. When he is "busy" he frequently gets rude with customers.

about $5-7 dollars more expensive for bombers than other stores in the area.

no thank you. no thank you.

This is an awesome place for trying new beers, especially for the imports, which they carry a lot compared to other beer stores in NYC, their taps are interesting; it's pricey due to the area but I thought it would be even more. They carry some beers that you would have troubles to find anywhere else like the Captain Lawrence triple IPA. They have some tastings events, written on a board in the store which is a good way to get in touch with whats happening in the store. Their manager is available to answer questions which is rare in NYC. Definitely a place to go, even though it is uptown.

When I went to City Swiggers they had a very nice beer selection (I was able to pick up BB Biscotti Break, Enjoy by 4/20 and a couple other things). They were a bit pricey but it's what I expected from the area. All the beers I looked at were fresh and mostly in season. The atmosphere of the place was a little plain, although with that being said I did like how clean the whole place was.

The service seemed to be the real issue in the store, when I went in there were three employees and none of them bothered to help. After making a $60 dollar purchase of bottles to go I asked if I could get a small tasting of one of their beers on tap. The older woman who was behind the bar told me I would need to purchase at least a pint if I wanted a tasting, which I thought was a little absurd

While I did get to pick out some nice beers I will not be returning. Between the service and the cost it's simply not worth it.
