I stumbled upon this little beer store while walking from the Bedford Ave area toward to Barcade. Hard by the BQE and tiny in size, this is an odd find indeed. They have a bunch of beer in two shelves (one of them a cooler) by the walls framing the joint, a growler bar/checkout area and a table in the middle of store with gourmet goodies and shit.

Dogfish Head, Perennial, Stone, Coronado, Local Option, Alesmith, Bruery, Founders, Rogue, Belgian beer... they have some cool bombers and expensive brews (forty bucks a pop anyone?).

A good stop if you live nearby or stumble upon it...

Smaller place, almost under the BQE in your favorite quality craft beer saturated/international beer destination neighborhood.

Cooler filled with bottles to the right, beer centric food/snack options to the left and growler fill station behing the counter in the back. What goes for a growler here and all that they fill are 25 ounce plastic bottles which come at no cost to you the consumer. About 10 BA worthy options on tap when I visited. Follow on Beermenus.com for seemingly frequent updates.

Charming and friendly younger couple runs the joint with obvious pride and love for the products. Worth a visit if crawling through the area. Would be a regular visit if I was more local.

Best beer store I've ever been to, hands down.

Love love love the Beer Boutique. Its my go to for all my beer treats. Vitaly & Masha are always so welcoming and friendly.. and of course super knowledgeable. The beer selection never stays stagnant, both on draft and in bottles. Was a bit hesitant about the plastic growlers but they're awesome and portable.

This place is a gem. Just off the BQE in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Beer Boutique has something for every beer taste. The first thing you'll notice when you walk in the door 34 oz. plastic growlers filled with a special counter pressure system are a great value & generally keep well for several weeks prior to opening. In addition to the 10 rotating beers on tap, they have a good selection of chilled & room temperature bottles & cans. They also sell snack food, such as pretzels & will be selling cheeses soon, as well. The proprietors are extremely knowledgeable, helpful, & entertaining.

I've always had such a difficult time finding quality brews to-go anywhere in NYC. Thankfully Beer Boutique opened a few years back. The owner is super nice and always has a few jokes for you. The store contains multiple taps with disposable 32 oz. growlers at usually reasonable prices. These growlers have the added benefit of appearing nondescript and I've had no issues walking around drinking from them in public. The police in Manhattan don't know what they are, at least. I know drinking in public is frowned upon, but I frown upon spending $9 for a single sub-par beer and it doesn't look as scummy as drinking "something" from a paper bag. Most beers here are top-notch and priced fairly, in bottles or on tap. I also love the look of the store and they're planning future expansion with some seating inside. I'm definitely looking forward to that. They also sell some snacks inside, which is good because the market down the road charges an absurd amount for everything. If you love craft beer, and need it to go, this is the place to go in Brooklyn.
