Ah, Bierkraft. Half upscale deli, half upscale beer store & growler dispensery. Their sandwiches are yummy and only moderately pricey. Great selection of growler fills at mostly reasonable prices.
Their bottled beer, however, is ridiculously overpriced. They boast an impressive selection for having such a small storefront, but your wallet feels the pinch with every bottle purchased. It's not uncommon to see their shelf prices marked 50% (and occasionally 100%!) higher than their nearby competitors -- even on items that aren't particularly tough to find!
Not to say there aren't occasional deals here: I purchased 3 bottles of 2006 DFH 120 for $17 apiece last summer. But overall, I have no reason to shop here. If they ever decide to lower their prices into the realm of reason, I'll give them another shot.

After going in tne front door, you walk down a narrow isle lined with bottled beer, much of it specialty beers that weren't too badly priced. The tastings of the dozen and a half beers were free and the guys working the counter were pretty knowledgeable, althogh I couldn't talk them into selling me a growler of either of the Peekskill beers because they were too hard to get (they would sell pints tho). They also wouldn't sell me any growlers unless I replaced my old metal caps with plastic polyseal caps (something I'd been meaning to do anyway).
I really liked the place and will definitely stop in next time I'm in town.
