Always enjoy going here and talking to the employees about beer. Their selection is very solid -- always have great beers to buy -- even if not the most expansive. It's a great place to grab a beer, talk to the people, and browse the selection before taking some with you. A bit out of the way for me, but that doesn't stop me from making frequent visits.

Any time I'm in the area I try to make it a point to pass through here. This place sells beer and (pretty much) only sells beer and it's great. Great selection of singles, decent selection of six packs, noting as far as large quantities go but I haven't inquired. One of the more unique aspects of this place is the set of taps which you can purchase beer in growlers to go, or you can stay and have a pint or sample a flight. A majority of the beers offered are on the local side; New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, then other well respected craft breweries the US, and then a smaller section for international beers. I noticed a four foot cooler of English brews, four feet of German, four feet of Belgian. There was one cooler of ciders.
Anyway, this place gets new stuff all the time and often has at least a few things I've never seen or tried before.
I will keep keep coming back here and I warmly recommend that others do the same.

Very cool spot in New York City's East Village neighborhood. Felt totally welcomed and comfortable almost immediately upon walking in. Knowledgeable and friendly staff happy to talk beer with you. Nice tap selection with growler service and a large variety of bottles available both in and out of fridge. Will definitely return to this place when I can.

Great selection of beers covering many styles. The staff was really knowledgable and was able to point me toward beers that matched the style I was looking for (I know he was right on, because many of the beers he pointed out were already on my list of favorites). Small selection on tap, but very carefully selected for quality and diversity.

Great selection, about a dozen rotating taps. Cool staff.

If you strike out here, Proletariat is right around the corner. I've yet to strike out here. The combination of local, national and international bottles coupled with growler fills gets the job done right.

Love this spot.

Kind of a small place but if you live in the EV this is a great little local option with very good variety. Guess I'm a little spoiled but the size of my bottle shops in Brooklyn and elsewhere.
