I work in Orangeburg in Rockland county so when I heard about a beer place dedicated to craft beer, I knew I had to stop by.
As I entered the store, the first thing that hit me was the size of the place. Like a combo tasting room/craft beer store, the area is really large. There's a bar, a growler fill station, and a number of tables for customers to sit and eat/drink. On top of all that, there are shelves and shelves of nice offerings.
Quality is really nice and the place struck me as an upscale lounge-type bar, which I really like.
There seemed to be almost too many people working there as the staff was really attentive and knew what they were talking about. The owner has some connections with a couple of different brewers across the country so he was well versed in his limited release/sought after beers which is always appreciated.
Selection is decent though not over the top. Comparable to any bottle shop in the city though this place is still a bit behind Decicco's in the selection category.
Overall, definitely worth a visit and I wish that when I stopped in, I had time to sit down and enjoy the ambience and atmosphere of the place. A bit pricey overall but good beer places are pretty few nad far between in Rockland so you get what you pay for.

Excellent place for craft beer lovers. Here are the highlights:
1. The staff is excellent and very knowledgeable about craft beer
2. There are about 20 taps that are always rotating. You can get growlers for most of them
3. Huge selection of craft beers. My guess is around 400-500 beers. Plenty of bombers are rare finds
4. Every Thursday night there is a craft brewery coming in and offering tastings. Not just local NY/NJ
brewers, but from all across the US. Firestone Walker, Bell's, Stone.
Best place for craft brew fans in the Lower Hudson Valley in the NYC metro area.

Great craft beer shop. Not only do they have rotating taps constantly featuring different craft beers, they've got bottles from all over the world for sale as well. It's fun to mix and match 6-packs and try lots of new beers. A small bar menu, including some truly awesome bavarian pretzels! The staff is friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I wish I drank beer more often! They also host craft beer festivals.
