Located in the foodie centric and Meat Packing district infused Chelsea market at 15th street and the way west side. Cool place in general to check out if you’re in the area.

They fill stuff. Oils, vinegars, and growlers of beer. The also have a large variety of salts, all sorts of salts, flavored, sea salt etc. I tried some ghost pepper infused salt, wow-hot stuff

Five quality options on tap, Captain L, Lagunitas, SN, Southampton, but check beer menus.com for the update. One reason for my visit was to get a jug of their “Hop Line” Belgian Pale, which I was told “is brewed only for us” by Six Point

Friendly, informative and cheerful staff. Interesting, and high quality products. I’ll be back. Nice place to pick up some house gifts/holiday gifts for the foodie(s) on your list.

FYI, they will fill your own growler and a 32 ouncer for ½ price if that’s your thing

I guess the Chelsea Market needed a growler shop, right… they have “one of every trend” (bakery, quality meats, seafood, you name it.). “The Filling Station” is inside the new area of the market where a lot of shops share tight quarters between the restrooms and waterfall and the Buon Italia shop.

This is tiny indeed, but full of goodies. I am very intrigued by their infused balsamic vinegars and olive oils, which come in all sorts of flavors. Also salts! I’m in heaven. Vanilla bean, espresso, mango, sherry… there are some seriously weird-but-cool combinations here.

I love the fact that you can try all of the salts, oils and vinegars. Not the beer, though, which anyways is almost an afterthought here. But the idea of refilling not only a growler but a container of salt or olive oil is great. They have some five taps here, mostly locals: Anderson Valley, Captain Lawrence, Kelso, Southampton and a Sixpoint/Filling Station exclusive: “Hopline”, a Belgian Pale Ale.

Service is nice and prices are reasonable enough, considering this is Chelsea Market. They will fill your own growler, which is cool, but my 32-oz swing-top didn’t fit their system. Bummer. I will go back, mostly for the oils and vinegars and salts!!
