Mid sized, bright, light, clean and new feeling sort of place. The good stuff is laid out on several shelving units right in front of you as you enter. Not bad for the area, in fact probably about the best place I can remember being to lately in this area of Long Island. Respectable selection of many of the commonly available locals, regionals, nationals and imports. The also sport 3-4 taps but the offerings seemed solidly on the safe side when I visited, call em to get an up to date list of growler options. One drawback is that only fill their own growlers, which cost ya a $5 deposit. That would well for locals but puts us infrequent visitors at a disadvantage.

Worth a visit if in the area

V: smallish store with a relatively well-sized craft section - kinda quiet and unassuming - but it should be noted I was there just a little before their 8 pm closing time on a Thursday night - didn't wow me, but was "quaint"

Q: of the craft that they had, presented a nice quality of selection - notable and local beers, most with reasonable freshness dates to very fresh dates - they didn't have a huge stable of beers, but their representation of what was current in other stores was good

S: normal/friendly - young dude at the counter watching TV while I shopped - greeted me on entry but otherwise let me shop - kinda what I wanted, you know? Friendly and professional at the counter, but nothing that stood out.

S: smallish, but well-representative of what's new to the area, like Ninkasi, Central Waters Illumination, really fresh Two Hearted. A few refrigerated doors and a few short aisles to browse.

If you're local, probably real nice and personal - I'm sure they take care of their own, but not necessarily a spot you'd need to travel to otherwise.

I frequent Babylon Beverage quite often. First off their craft beer selection is quite good for a smaller store. They have an aisle completely dedicated to bomber size craft beers which rotate every once in a while with some new stock. Their selection of six and four packs is very good. They keep a few rarer beers behind the counter and are always very reasonable on the prices of these. The staff is very helpful and are always excited about new products coming in.
Overall it's a great stop if your looking for some common craft beers as well as some things you might not often see.
