Nice new addition to the Rockland county beer world. This spot is just a few minutes from the Tappan Zee Bridge, the Palisades mall and downtown Nyack.
They are filling growlers from 16 taps, offering a boat load of the usual craft bottle options available in the area, and have a nice casual space to enjoy a pint and relax with other beer lovers. Expect to find a lot of what is generally available in the area.
Most of the bottles are kept warm, but there is a mid sized cooler unit or two towards the rear of the place.
Good option for people travelling through the area on the NYS throughway to pick up NY state options. Also, I'd be here regularly to fill growlers if I was more local.

Nice new option for the area. Lots of bottles, decent array of limited releases, everything you'd expect to find on shelves and more. All the latest arrivals and fair, competitive pricing.
Nicely appointed room. 16 taps, cold bottles for on premise consumption, in store tastings, good looking and smelling food, although I didn't have a chance to order anything. The place was jumping on a late Saturday afternoon, youthful college-y crowd that was exuberant but not obnoxious.
Homebrew kits from brewer's best as well as a decent assortment of homebrew essentials. A few shelves dedicated to glassware as well. Service was exceptionally friendly and accommodating, memorably so, particularly in light of the fact that they were so busy.
I left with a homebrew recipe kit, a bomber of Evil Twin Femme Fatale Noir, a 750 of perennial's black walnut dunkel, a goose island tulip, and a case of empties for my homebrew. 70 bucks. More than reasonable; the kit was almost ten dollars cheaper than in other stores and ten dollars for an Evil Twon bomber is about as nice a price as you'll find.
Definitely worth checking out of you're in the area. Looking forward to coming back soon!

I work in Orangeburg in Rockland county so when I heard about a beer place dedicated to craft beer, I knew I had to stop by.
As I entered the store, the first thing that hit me was the size of the place. Like a combo tasting room/craft beer store, the area is really large. There's a bar, a growler fill station, and a number of tables for customers to sit and eat/drink. On top of all that, there are shelves and shelves of nice offerings.
Quality is really nice and the place struck me as an upscale lounge-type bar, which I really like.
There seemed to be almost too many people working there as the staff was really attentive and knew what they were talking about. The owner has some connections with a couple of different brewers across the country so he was well versed in his limited release/sought after beers which is always appreciated.
Selection is decent though not over the top. Comparable to any bottle shop in the city though this place is still a bit behind Decicco's in the selection category.
Overall, definitely worth a visit and I wish that when I stopped in, I had time to sit down and enjoy the ambience and atmosphere of the place. A bit pricey overall but good beer places are pretty few nad far between in Rockland so you get what you pay for.

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 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.

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.
