Over in the Park Slope neighborhood is this a great place to grab some beer & have a fantastic sandwich named Bierkraft. They serve pints as well as fill growlers. I believe that they have 8-10 lines going, usually with a nice variety, sometimes w/ a tap takeover. Rogue, Chelsea and Ithaca were some of the bewers on when I stopped in. You can also find quite a few bottles here, but did not spend too much time looking that over. The staff is well versed in their products and helpful. And you might as well stop by when hungry, because their sandwiches are quite tasty.

The world-famous Bierkraft! What's wrong with it? Tiny, cramped and crummy. There are two storefronts, one with beer and another one with tables. A narrow railroad holds a bunch of coolers and shelves with good stuff, but so incredibly overpriced it hurts.
Rockmill, barrel-aged Thirsty Ulver, Port City, Penn Brewing, Voodoo, Midnight Sun Moscow... these are beers you can't easily (if at all) find in NYC. But the regular stuff? Forget about it. $14.75 for a six-pack of Union Jack, and $13.75 for Prima Pils.
They have a bunch of taps for pints and growler fills, but none of them were terribly appealing when I visited. I'll pass on this place, at least until they clean up and control the price situation.

The biggest question mark here is "Value."
This is a really well-curated (but fairly small) shop with bottle sales on the floor and growler fills as well as on-premises pint pours in the back (with a lovely backyard to boot).
The growlers are meticulously curated and taken care of, with counter-pressure filling on a tremendous range of beers (from local to far-reaching, from inexpensive to very pricey). 5/5 on this part of their service.
For bottles, though, their prices are egregious. They have a remarkably well-curated selection, so if price is no object, this is the place to shop. That said, they easily overprice neighboring bottle shops by 20-30% on nearly all of the shops to which I've compared them.
TL,DR: Go for a pint or to fill up your growlers, but hit up a different shop if you want to stock your cellar.
