I have been here a few times since they opened up. Having a good beer shop on the UES is certainly a welcome addition to the landscape in New York City. And I do not even live in the city, just end up visiting it a couple times each month. Their selection is fairly diverse with lots of American craft beer, as well as Belgians, U.K., Italian, Japanese and other beers thrown into the mix. You can fill growlers or even enjoy glass on site. One of things unique to them is serving empanadas alongside the beer. Prices are just a tad expensive, but it is the UES, so no biggie. As a couple others stated, would not go out of my way for CS, but if you are fairly close to it, this shop is a great option.

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.
