    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.

    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.

    $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

    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.

    Beers are arranged east coast to west, starting in the front to the back. They have a great selection, despite their merely "good" name

    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.

    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).

    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) Read more

    Excellent collection of bottled craft beers. Unique even for craft beer enthusiasts. Much more than the always available Stone, Dogfish, Bear Republic, Ommegang etc.

    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!

    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.

    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

    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 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.

    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.
