I have been here a few times in the past, I would go more often if I lived in the neighbourhood. This is really a great place for Manhattan as there has been a need for a store that fills growlers like this. You can walk up and pick up a fresh 64oz of good local beer. They have one Sixpoint beer, the Eight days of week always on tap. Decnet beer and a good price at $7 a growler. They usually have another Sixpoint as well as Brooklyn, Capt Lawrence and a few other locals.

Bottlewise the selection is very good but not the best in the city. What I really like is there focus on local beers, they really highlight the region with Butternuts, Keegan, Souther Tier, Middle Ages, Brooklyn and some NJ and PA beers like Weyerbacher, Victory, Ramstein and more. The foreign selection is good as well, some jewels you wont find too many other places. My only complaint is you cannot split sixers and no Captain Lawrence bottles, but really that is getting picky as the selection is great. Their selection of west coast beers is good as well, Bear Republic, Stone's whole lineup, Hair Of the Dog, etc..

Servicewise they are great. They really went above and beyond to satisfy my craving for Yulesmith when it came in. I happenend to be in the area so I went in to see if the rumours were true. They went in the back and pulled out a case for me before they even knew what they were going to charge for it.

This is definitely a spot for good beer.

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.
