Best beer selection in Manhattan. Check dates on hoppy beers, sometimes they're a little past prime. Absolutely amazing selection of Belgian and European beers as well as a large and impressive American craft selection. Can buy singles , which is awesome, for basically the same price per unit as a 6er. I often feel slightly overwhelmed here by the sheer amount of beers to choose from. The owners are incredibly nice and helpful, casual, friendly. Come down here BEFORE going to the Bowery Whole Foods as you are likely to find it cheaper, almost everything is cheaper than up the street at Whole Foods. I like the dank cellar-like conditions here :). Low light and sort of dark and musty better for the beer! All in all, a great place to experiment with new beers and get a great deal while you're at it. They also have tap beer for growler fills. What's not to like? Sure , it's a little funky, but it is what it is. Only problem, they are only open until 6 PM. Stay open a little later guys! 6 is too early to close!

My first stop in NYC for bottled beer to take home. It's a Warehouse & after 10 minutes a was asked if I wanted any help. What seemed to me to be a very good selection of beer from all over the world but I was after NY brewed bottles, which I found plenty and was able to split the 6 packs. Also found a number from breweries in CT as well as New Belgium, NC

there is some very old beer for sale here, I wouldn't buy anything that's not bottle dated or a one time current release. the brothers who run the place are honest about how long they've had things in my experience.

My type of place. Great selection and maintained in ideal cellar conditions.

Best prices in town. Hands down.

This is a curious place. Total warehouse feel. If you can hunt a staff person down, they range from snappy and unhelpful to warm and inviting.

Don't go for IPAs, unless it's something you know was released recently - the warehouse isn't temperature controlled, and their IPAs don't clear the shelves very quickly.

Some good values can be found, but overall found their prices to be average to pricey.

Worth stopping in if you're in the area, and it makes for a nice beer haul stop along with Whole Foods Bowery and Top Hops, both very close by.
