Great addition to a neighborhood that has tons of people but not a ton of quality beer destinations.

If you live in NYC/Brooklyn, and have been following the beer scene for the past year or two, you have seen a few places like this before. You know the deal. More then ample selection of quality bottles/cans both warm and chilled, mix a six if you like. Fill a growler, have a pint, sit, relax and enjoy. Friendly athmosphere. Smattering of small tables in the rear. Prices reflect the neighborhood people. Do you have any idea of what rents are on 86th street on the UpperEast side of NYC? Worth a visit if in the area, or just a few minutes off of the FDR drive. Not really worth a special trip, as there are so many places in the general NYC area with comparable selections.

One bonus is they are just a block or so from bustling NYC Food market all stars Fairway market. So this is a good block to get all your food and beer needs taken care of.

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.
