Out in the Lower East Side, stopped by here on our last day of touring NYC so I could pick up some beer. Great selection of bottles, 5 tap growler station and a whole corner of this little shop dedicated to homebrew supplies (grains, equipment etc.) Service was a bit spotty, no one really offered to help so you've got to chase after them here for advice/suggestions and see if there's anything lingering in the back and not on shelves (I did pester one of the gentlemen and he pulled out a surprise for me from the back - at a 1 bottle limit for this 12oz beer). Large selection but probably not as great as New Beer down the street, and at slightly elevated priced (expect ~$2+ difference on larger format bottles I'd estimate). 6 packs can be broken up. Some special offerings here too that I didn't find at New Beer Distributors that I was quite pleased to run into as well, and a bit more logically organized than NBD as well (in terms of brewery sorting). One of the ladies (Liz, I believe) gave me a hand and pointed out some limited/uncommon beers for me to check out so I appreciated the help. Walked out of here with 7 bombers and a mixer four pack, and the bill came out to $120+, but that may be more of a function of the beers I selected than what's regularly available for sale here. Overall, a place that's respectable with a wide selection, although the service was a bit hands off. I'd certainly come back.

Nice beer selections, but also have beers strung throughout the store... that makes it a bit confusing as I noticed beer in at least 10 places.
