vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 4

Good access, directly across the street from the F train, which works well for me living in queens.

Regular wholefoods type beer department, except expanded. about four, large racks filled with all types of local, domestic, and international beers, mostly singles and 24 oz bottles.

They also have a large, produce style open refridgerator filled with 6 packs and 750 ml's. Homebrew section is by the register, and has a lot of specialty grains. More than i would have expected. They carry a very large selection of yeast, hops. Their dme and lme is a little lacking, but besides that, its all there.

The selection is pretty good, very expansive, but not a lot of rarities. I did find DFH world wide, and some pretty hard to find trappist's.

Service was great, not really anyone rushing you with anything. Mostly chill hipsters. You cant really beat it.

Prices are a little on the high side, but thats what you get when you go to a whole foods. Some things were well priced, but their singles can get a little out of hand, esspecially when theyre charging 4 bucks for a single founders rye ipa, when i can buy a 6 pack for 12 bucks.

Pro's- ease of access, selection, depth, and you really never know what you'll come across if you dig behind some of the older bottles.

Cons- Major amounts of sunlight hitting the bottles, and prices for singles.

Definitely recommend.

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.
