Made a turn out of the Terminal Market and stumbled upon a closet-ful of craft brews, right in a GCT hallway. Had no idea this ever existed, but my days of the Fosters Oil Can on the Metro North ride home are officially over.

Very small facility, but probably 40-50 different beers ranging from the ordinary (Brooklyn) to the premium (interesting Belgian section). Everything is available warm or cold - but you'll need an opener to enjoy on the train itself. Plus, 4 brews on tap for take home growlers.

Very helpful staff - I knew what I was doing, but a few people wandered in who were lost, and they were very helpful.

Be prepared for sticker shock - you are definitely paying for their GCT lease. So not likely to be your beer run place, but to buy stuff in NY you have to pay NY prices, so just sit back, relax, and enjoy not having to drink crappy brews on the train ride home!

I'm a regular here, stopping in at least 2-3 evenings a week before my dreaded train ride home from midtown to somewhere too far north. The beer carts in GCT suck (although the very recent addition of Goose Island was a slight step up), so the arrival of this joint afew months back was welcome. The redhead who manages the place is a hottie, so if nothing else, seeing her a few times a week makes me happy. The selection is always interesting, but given my go-to beer place back home carries 1000+ labels, the Beer Pantry is limited for me. And CRAZY expensive. C R A Z Y expensive....just in case you missed my point. Expect a minimum 40-60% mark up on everything. But hey, it's NYC, it's GCT and it's unique. You'll pay to enjoy. I do.
