i think this was my favorite shop I visited. Down a few steps on a slightly quiter street but very close to Tompkins Sq park. simple clean place, larger line of coolers on one side, small shelf space and counter on the opposite.

Stopped here early on but after visiting quite a few other places and felt as if i could have saved my self the trouble and just stopped here. They had almost everything plus more that I had seen at the other places, great selection. Also they clearly put up by the register what new releases have come in, nice touch.

Have 6-8 taps for growler fills, pints or tasters. Allow you to do individual tasters (bonus).

Stopped in at least 3 times, very friendly staff. Have a few tables in the back. If I could only pick one bottle shop this would be it (neck and neck with Top Hops).

Only draw back is they close a little early, even on the weekends.

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.
