Great beer selection. Limited seats. And you can not drink cans or bottles onsite.
So cozy and good selection!
I'm personally not a beer drinker, but this is my go-to spot for Birthday and holiday gifts. If I provide a small amount of guidance, the Good Beer team creates a 6 pack of awesome new, craft beers. My gift recipients have never been disappointed. I 100% appreciate their helpfulness with such an overwhelming selection.
Great place to have a beer while shopping for more beer.
Beer is great here. Amazing selection of cans and bottles, and a handful of amazing and eclectic beers on tap. Bring a growler!
Great unique place with plenty of beers to select from!
If you live in NYC, or if you're visiting, Good Beer is the definitive place place to stop for beer. I used to live a block away from Good Beer. After moving to San Francisco, I can't begin to say how much I miss my favorite beer store. There's no place like Good Beer!
Great beer, they take credit, but bring some cash to tip your bartender
Great selection & wonderful staff. Best in East Village.
Awesome selection. Helpful staff, and you can enjoy a fresh beer on tap while you shop. I'll be back.
Great selection of beers and knowledgable people to help you find a new favorite!
Good variety of bottled beer. They offer 5 taps
Everything! You can't go wrong with any of the beers 😃
Not much of an actual bar but good for take home
Amazing selection of craft beer on bottles and cans. Focus on American beer but a decent selection of European too. A few taps for a glass to stay, or growlers to go.
Awesome place, knowledgeable people who are very helpful & nice. Great beer selection.
An amazing worldwide selection of beers, lagers, ales, porters, saisons, ipas and more besides. Buy in store or over the small bar/till and drink on a large wooden table at the back. Tucked away, but a gem of a store. Really helpful and friendly staff
Make your own six pack and drink the draft beer while you shop.
Posto carino. Personale simpatico. Ottima birra sia da consumare sul posto che da portare via.!!
Great bottle selection and a rotating selection on draft. The staff is really helpful, too.
Cool vibe from the workers and casual atmosphere to sip on some frosty drafts....
I'm in a resort island in east coast. Take me back to good beer!!!!!
A wide selection of craft beer for purchase. A good selection of craft beer on tap.
What a great place, one of the first to do what they do here in New York.
Great beer selection both on tap and in bottles (and oh how many bottles). Staff is always super nice and helpful.
Mellow laid back atmosphere with great beer selection.
Beers are arranged east coast to west, starting in the front to the back. They have a great selection, despite their merely "good" name
delicious and super friendly!!
They have good beer.
Love this place ! Great selection and people who work there are great as well ! Cheers
Come here for craft beer! Enjoy a beer flight ;)
Great selection of singles
Don't be shy to ask for a recommendation
Great selection. Mostly domestic, but decent amount of German beers. Perfect relaxed seating in the back to enjoy whatever beer you just bought. Quiet, cool vibe.
Always a good source for Gansett.
I've been an ABC devotee for years- but stopped by to my pleasant surprise- found a greater selection of domestic craft beers to go. Would still pick ABC to hang and sip, but Good Beer for roadies.
Best store in NYC for your craft beer needs. Prices are on point as well.
Good spot to get hard-to-find varieties of Gansett.
Great selection, grabbed the Sriracha porter for my birthday I will come back next time I am in the city, to see what else you guys got.
They have an amazing selection of great beers
Hopslam is back!
Great place. Cheapest craft 6ers in town. Too bad they close at 10.
Great beer selection, both in bottles and on tap. The folks working here know their beer and provide excellent recommendations. Love the space too, great for hanging out with friends.
Good Beer is really a misleading name. It should be called best beer; reason being is because this store is one of the best curated and best priced in the city. I've never gone to the place and walked out empty handed or with a bottle that wasn't really worth it. I've never called ahead and gotten someone who didn't know what they were talking about. I've never seen them miss a limited release, even if they only have a limited quantity. Basically, this is the best overall beer store I've been to. Just about the only workout I get these days is the one my arms get from carrying bags of their beer back to Jersey City. Did I mention that the prices are reasonable as well? Good Beer also doubles as a bar somehow. I'm not sure about the rules on this, but this may be the most awesome loophole ever. In addition to all the bottles, they always have 8-10 tap selections that are also available by growler. They have food too, but I've never had it. This is basically the beer store companion to Proletariat. Combine all of this with a 10% discount for 6 bottles or more and special brewery events that occur intermittently, and you have a special place. For an alcoholic at least.
This place is pretty cool. Good selection of beer to purchase for yourself, and some decent taps as well. They have some tables in the back so you can...
Fly on taps first, and browse the fridge later; there is a last call around 9:40pm
Ser spännande ut!
Good, mångfald av ölsorter.
Excellent place to either pick up esoteric bottles of beer or enjoy them in the shop's sit down area. Small but well curated tap selection as well.
These guys know their beer. They purvey a selection of delicious local beers (and cider) on tap, as well as several fridge cases full of bottles. Coming...
That's good beer
If you love beer you'll love this place. That's all there is to say about it

try a different beer each time. don't make the mistake of committing to one and sticking with it. that would be a waste! so many good ones.
East Village beer store/growler tap/mini-bar. Subterranean specialty beer shop (didn't see any Keystone 30s) offers an answer to the dilemma of so many...
Beer menu that changes with good, hard to find choices. Good snacks !
Excellent collection of bottled craft beers. Unique even for craft beer enthusiasts. Much more than the always available Stone, Dogfish, Bear Republic, Ommegang etc.
I wish I could be locked in this store overnight and have a "From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler" kind of night so I could try all the beers. they would all be magnificent.
Great beer selection. My favorite craft beer store in the city.
Great place to find some hard to find beers.
Excellent beer selections, very knowledgeable staff! The owner, one class dude bar none!
The people who work here are literally SO nice. A bottle of nice beer (Stone) can be up to 4 bucks but for national craft beers, spending under 20 bucks for a six pack isn't bad. The shop is arranged by region and there's tables to enjoy whatever they happen to have on tap that day. LOVE this place
They have a small selection of sour beers if you ask. 🍺
Unbelievable beer selection. Seriously.
Wanted to surprise my boyfriend with a little shopping spree..that is beer spree!!! Woot this place is awesome. Got a flight to try a couple of beers while...
Lojinha muito boa. Não tem metro perto e fica em uma rua transversal à 1st St meio escondida. Vale à pena a visita. Peça os samplers de degustação e escolha a melhor pra brindar.
Best place to hang out every Saturday.
If you like beer you're going to love this place. I came here with a group of friends not knowing what to expect. As soon as we entered we were greeted by...

Cheap, amazing selection. $8 flights!
This place is as good as it gets. It's a beer store with taps and growler fills. The bartenders are friendly and helpful. There's some tables in the back...
This place sells Augustiner Edelstoff, which I highly recommend for anyone searching for an authentic, delicious Bavarian beer.

This place is freaking awesome. If you love craft beer you need to visit this place. My boyfriend and I are big California microbrewery fans so we really...
Visited this place back in 2009 and was so impressed that it inspired me to open my own wine shop in the UK (also selling beer :-) ) 4 years later. Good Beer is just a wonderful place that needs finding if you're ever in NYC !!
You guys are the absolute best!! Thank you thank you!!
Attention parents of Alphabet City and the East Village: this place is stroller friendly! Dad's like good beer too.
our go to place! always look forward to visiting! and tasting!!!!
I love this place. They have variety of American craft beers and Belgian, German, and English imports. I'll still keep my review at 5 stars, but they were sold out of a lot of my favorite beers today (Wednesday). They had no Victory Golden Monkey, no Troegs Perpetual IPA, and no Flying Dog Raging B :(. The clerk said that they place orders once a week on Wednesday and they arrive on Thursday. So if you want to make sure you have your chosen beers in stock, you might want to go after Wednesday.
$8 flights are the go to move. Sit back, relax and enjoy 4 one of a kind beers on tap that change weekly. You will never get these anywhere else in the city
This is the most comprehensive beer shop I have ever seen. Difficult to find craft beers from all over the globe. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Fill up a growler or mix and match. This is a beer lovers paradise.
With $6 pints and $8 flights, Good Beer is the perfect way to get to know some craft brews. It's relaxed, comfortable environment and friendly staff make this place hard to leave.
This place never ceases to blow my mind. They have a fantastic selection of craft beers. You can mix and match individual bottles to take home, or get a...
I have a bit of a bias towards California beers. That being said, Good Beer stocks all of my local favorites PLUS they have great suggestions for local,...
This place is a great option for newcomers hoping to discover their favorite beer or old pro's trying to find a rare brew. They offer flights of four to help you sample a few different brews on tap and they try and keep at least one cider on tap at all times. I had a cherry cider here November 2012 that was so delicious I bought an entire growler on the spot. Still have the growler, would like more cherry cider. They have a large selection of various beers and accommodate all tastes from ales to stouts to ciders. The staff is super friendly as well and will always talk to you about their available selections. It's a small cozy place and I always enjoy visiting it.
My friend and I had the best time picking out yummy 4 packs of beers to bring to a Labor Dat BBQ. Fabulous selection! Friendly people! Lots of great beer. What more could you ask for?
while i've never eaten here, i drop by constantly for their amazing selection of cold beer and interesting draught selections. reasonable prices on great craft beer. friendly, knowledgeable staff. lots of terrific special events.
Estava sem saber o que comprar, mas a vendedora foi super atenciosa, mesmo com meu inglês capenga. Pergunte por dicas sem hesitar!
They serve a limited amount of beer-worthy food such as kielbasa, hot dogs and pretzels.
Get an Innes & Gunn to go
Try the beer.
Best selection in the city. Rotating tap beers and sampler flights .
Good Beer has everything a craft beer lover could want: a selection of bottles & cans as far as the eye can see; superb customer service; and an amazing staff that cultivates a warm, inviting vibe.
Support local beer and the stores that dare to stock them. Best selection in the hood, and nicest staff too.
A true gem of a find as far as beer stores go. Huge selection. Also $8 tasting flights of whatever is on tap or just grab a half pint while you browse.
Note to self - get the Flying Dog Pearl Necklace oyster stout
Great, perfectly curated spot in our old neighborhood. Miss it terribly.
I LOVE THIS PLACE. The people that work here are extremely knowledgeable of their beer selection and know how to help you find the types you're looking to try. They also do beer tastings and usually have about 3-5 beers on tap to enjoy in the store.
Best beer selection during the fall and winter months, smuttynose, peak organic, all around the greatest place in NYC for decent (and fucking amazing) beer
Got a flight for $8. Great way to sample new beers!
Try the BEEr!
Mix and match your own six pack. There are so many beers to choose from
Beers in the cooler are organized geographically. Check the labels and stick to the WEST.
If you're looking for a shop with a good selection of craft beers, this is it. I've been looking for a place like this in the city for a while. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)
Try the Abita Strawberry or Abita Amber. Easily the best two brews of Abita.
Happy to award the Snail of Approval to Good Beer NYC
A must if you're in the hood. Great stop on a Sat or Sun afternoon. And they have Golden Spike from Utah.
They have good beers here.
Try the Cherry Vanilla in da cone
This ethical & sustainable local business is offering 10% off during Shop Your Values Week!
I like to come here, pick out a few random bottles, and try them at home. So far the only one thats stood out is Saranac Pomegranate Wheat. Has to count for something, no? (4 of 4 petals via Fondu)
Have a beer.
They have a Munich beer I haven't been able to find anywhere else. Try the Augustiner!
amazing selection of beer in bottles!
To get your craft beer fix, seek no further. Grab a growler to go or make your own six pack. Either way you'll be leaving with…wait for it….good beer.
I'm visiting from Toronto and simply walked in & asked an employee to get me two each of his five favorite beers. Currently drinking them with a friend & they are amazing. Best service I've ever had!
Grab a Saison Dupont.
It's called "Good Beer" and not "Good Pretzel" for a reason. Flights of rotating brews are the best method of introduction to new favorites.
A great variety of beer!
Ask Dave about the growlers
Friendly, knowledgeable staff, great prices, cool events, solid flight offerings. Recommended!
Ask the guys who work here to put something together for you. Describe your taste and they'll stay within your budget.
Great $8 flights. Start the night here and take a snack break at This Little Piggy which has amazing roast beef sandwiches and also decent beer.
Great beer store with options from across the country. Found Cisco's Whale's Tale here as one of the few Manhattan sellers.
A great spot to test-drive beers in a sampler before you grab a growler. Check out their bottle selection in the coolers, organized by region from front (East Coast) to back (West Coast and Abroad).
This is THE place to shop for your craft beer needs. Grab a sampler or a draft while you're there. They also host tasting events.
New favorite place for craft beer! So much to choose from!
Always find something new and different here.
Good Beer, when do we marry?! Awesome place, very friendly staff, super helpful.
Try the beer!
Great selection of micro brews.
What could be better than shopping while drinking beer? Shopping for beers while drinking beer. Humbly named Good Beer feels like getting the keys to the beer kingdom—a jam-packed bottle shop (geograp
Gluten free beer
Follow Good Beer on Twitter @goodbeernyc or on Facebook to get updates about tasting events. They're always a good time, and who doesn't like getting to know a brewery with a $6 flight?
Beer. Beer. Beer.
Go for a draft beer flight And leave with a sixer of a rare variety.
Every other week they have a FREE beer tasting. Be sure to check it out!
Great place to sample different beers! Stop by to start the night.
The $6 sampler is a great way to try lots of new things.
Rick and david
This place is great best selection in the city and really cool staff
Get ready for the best kid-in-an-candy-store experience you'll have in 2011! Go talk to Dave, the owner, and he'll help you choose a flight that suits your taste. Don't leave without trying something!
amazing beer store in EV. make sure you get a flight
check out this beer store
beer selection is fantastic! interestingly the Carolus van de Keizer is really cheap.
Grab a seat and sample before taking home some new tastes. There is no excuse for drinking bad beer again.
Chat with the guys here about their favorite of the 12 current options on tap. Then get a pint or a flight before filling your growler.
Do the sampler they guys behind the counter will really tailor to what u like or dislike. Great way to try a neew draft u haven't had before
Best place ever!!!!!!!!!
Best place ever!!!!!!!!!!!
Great new place. Totally chill people behind the bar, great selection and prices. I only wish they'd let you buy bottles and drink them there.
try the sweet and savory beer corn
Craft beer, cheese, and sausages.
