Went here based on the all of the good reviews on BA. Not sure the visit was entirely warranted.
33 Wine is a wine bar and craft beer bar. They sell bottles to go, but this is primarily a bar. There are about 6 taps and somewhere around 100 bottles, though I suspect the number of bottles on offer varies depending on what is available.
I came in to the shop primarily to purchase bottles to go. Since this is a wine bar, to go purchases are made off the menu. There are no shelves to peruse. No labels to read. Just the menu. Others have mentioned they were taken back to the cellar, but that was not the case in my instance. And this was not because they were busy as I was literally the only person in the store at the time. So I ordered a tap beer and sat at the bar to look over the menu.
There were two employees working while I was there. The younger guy was quite helpful and pointed out some "rarer" bottles that likely wouldn't see distribution in my area. The older guy just seemed annoyed by my presence.
Hard to comment on the atmosphere. At the time I was there it was an empty bar in the middle of the day. Didn't eat while I was there, so I am unable to comment on that as well.
In the end, I finished my beer, purchased my bottles and headed down the street to a grocery store (Fields) for some non-beer purchases. As fate would have it, the grocery store had a decent selection of beers so I decided to take a look. I couldn't believe it when I notice two of the bottles of "rare" beer I just bought from 33 right there on the shelf. At a fucking grocery store. And for $4 less a bottle to boot. To think I tipped the guy over at 33 just so he could take advantage of my lack of beer knowledge concerning the local distribution. Oh well, I guess you win some and you lose some.

2 sommeliers work here including the owner

James was very knowledgable and very engaged with us as it was not very crowded.
We ordered plenty of wine and got to pour some rare beers.
