This is a renaissance beer store. You enter and on both sides are reasonably priced bottles of some very cool stuff. They have a very nice selection that includes a shelf of hard to find beers or bottles they aged themselves. They have a handful of taps and they have a sandwich shop with some nice cheeses attached to the place. They are also in the process of getting a brewing license to make their own beer. When I went there the staff was not very friendly though. My girlfriend and I were the only two in the store and the two employees there were speaking to each other and didn't even acknowledge us until we started to move a couple bottles we wanted to the counter. At that point they did get some points back when they offered us a couple pulls from the tap even though we hadn't shown any interest previously.

All and all it was a worth while trip and a place I would return to.

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.
