Bierkraft in Park Slope, Brooklyn is the best small beer store I've been to, hands down. When you walk in they have the fridge loaded with vintage beers on the left and shelving with newer beers on the right (it's not so cut and dry but that's what I noticed). There really are some gems to be found here for your beer cellar.

As you walk back there's a bottle filling station with a constantly changing assortment of fresh beers. They will fill any 64 oz. growler with a screw top or a 22 oz. capped bomber (if you don't bring your own glassware they will just charge you for deposit). The top 3 features of the filling station are:
-Utilizes a homemade counter pressure filling system (so the beer you get is essentially as if it were bottled from the brewery)
-WIll fill 22 oz. bombers for you (and cap them) so you don't have to buy 64 oz. of beer and worry about it staying fresh once you open it
-They feature some of the best beers that come into NYC (in the past they've had Ommegang Rouge, The Bruery Melange No. 3, and Goose Island Night Stalker)

To top everything off they have an incredible charcuterie (fancy word for deli). I chose the Italian - which features authentic Italian meats (coppicola, soppresata, mortadella) and the fixin's on a fresh ciabatta sub. For $9 you get the sub and your choice of local chips or local apple.

Any beer you purchase in the store can be drank on site in the nice and cozy picnic table-esque seating area - and they provide the glassware too!

Overall, this is a great place to go with your beer-loving friends and even if you don't care for beer you can still go and get one of the best sandwiches I've tasted in NYC.

Cheers!

Pros: Excellent vintage beer selection, fresh beer fills

Cons: High prices, small place

I don't drink beer, but oh, the cheese! And the gelato sandwiches! and the little other gourmet treats you can get here. I love this place. And the owners are very nice too. It's a place you can really feel good about supporting. Go there! They even have tables now where you can sit down and eat a yummy sandwich!

These guys do Tuesday evening beer-and-cheese tastings where you learn everything about what you're tasting. The beer selection is big for such a small shop and they also brew their own. The cheese selection is carefully selected and with their expert help you can sample your way to the perfect cheese. Also, there are lots of little treats and snacks. The staff clearly enjoy what they do and the shop seems like a real labor of love.

My brother, who works in the beer industry, turned me on to this place. Not only is the beer selection good, but they have a wide range of edible delicacies as well (think imported chocolate and meats). This is the place to head to if you want to serve your guests (or yourself) an excellent treat!

It's more likely the staff member you interacted with was dead tired from working at a place where so many people enjoy shopping. Since the day it opened, Bierkraft has served up not only the finest, freshest selection of beeyas in the tri-state, but a friendly attitude as well. I support my local bodega, but when you want to go beer shopping, there's no other choice.

Bierkraft rocks.

Pros: freshness

Cons: hours / an hour later please!?

Incredibly overpriced, and the salesperson I interacted with was downright rude. Go to the deli next door - they have a decent selection and its half the price.

Pros: Can't think of one

Cons: Rude staff, overpriced, overrated

This is one of the reasons Brooklyn is awesome. In addition to the mind boggling amount of beer, there is a huge cheese selection, and tons of chocolate. The people there obviously care a lot about what they're selling, and you can spend hours talking to the folks behind the cheese counter. They just started selling seasonal or specialty beer by the big bottle, and you bring in your big bottle and fill it up, then bring it back for more when it's empty! The world is a better place for this.

The people who work here can really help you find the perfect beer. I went in there looking for a specific beer that I had had once in Germany, and they actually had it! They also have a wonderfully stinky and delicious cheese section.
