Excellent place for craft beer lovers. Here are the highlights:
1. The staff is excellent and very knowledgeable about craft beer
2. There are about 20 taps that are always rotating. You can get growlers for most of them
3. Huge selection of craft beers. My guess is around 400-500 beers. Plenty of bombers are rare finds
4. Every Thursday night there is a craft brewery coming in and offering tastings. Not just local NY/NJ
brewers, but from all across the US. Firestone Walker, Bell's, Stone.

Best place for craft brew fans in the Lower Hudson Valley in the NYC metro area.

A mix between the huge selection, the beer tasting bar, and the nice people that work there make Growler & Gill the best place on Earth.

I've been to this place several times since it opened. There's no other place like it in Rockland County. They have 16 rotating taps of top notch beers and they have a cooler with dozens of different bottles and cans along with a huge selection of warm bottles and cans for carry out. The food menu is very limited, it's good, light fare, but this not someplace you go to especially for the food, most people who come in are here for the beer. The staff is very knowledgeable and all around very pleasant, always ready with suggestions. The atmosphere is great, it's decorated and designed beautifully and it's great to have a place to go where I can meet up with other lovers of great beer. They do tastings at least once , sometimes twice per week.
I can't say enough good things, the place is great.

Great craft beer shop. Not only do they have rotating taps constantly featuring different craft beers, they've got bottles from all over the world for sale as well. It's fun to mix and match 6-packs and try lots of new beers. A small bar menu, including some truly awesome bavarian pretzels! The staff is friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I wish I drank beer more often! They also host craft beer festivals.

Really great selection. Prices are a little high, but worth it for the beers you can't find anywhere else.

Great new place in town. I live 1/2 mile from my house, so it is my local hangout. 16 rotating taps and a fully stocked retail store. They have a great stock that is always changing. If they don't have it, they get it for you; quick!
Small plates of food, but all high quality. Staff is very knowledgeable and is always giving you the full description of every beer and of course will always let you taste anything before you buy. They fill growlers from the 16 taps that they always switch up. They have free tastings every Thursday from different breweries. And, every $100 you spend, you get $5 off.
It's an all around great place and definitely worth a trip to check it out.

Very nice *new* store! The business model is remarkable from the perspective of it being a store, bar, small plate cafe, and home brew store.

There is a wide selection of beers from around the world, though some are not represented (Murphy's).

There are 16 taps on the wall with options for pints and flights at a reasonable price point. I did enjoy beers from Captain Laurence - specifically the Imperial IPA! Very nice with Simcoe hops.

I'm sure this unique store with it's mix of business types will do very well.

Great new addition to the sorely lacking rockland county beer scene. Amazing selection of 16 rotating and frequently changing taps. Free Samples of anything you want. They also sell bottles and have some small plate sekections for food. Staff is very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. They do tastings every Thursday, events most nights of the week. I know I'm going to be here more than my wife likes.

My first time here and I was able to have something from Hill Farmstead and a Sam Adams Utopias. That was the primary reason for stopping in. Unfortunately we arrived fairly close to closing time so we were only able to have the two beer (the Utopias being a one oz. pour). Next time we will get there earlier.
