This place has the biggest selection from what ive seen in brooklyn youve got everything in here from imports to local brews. Ive always got to pick up stuff I cant find elsewhere for cheaper than other outrageous prices of nyc.
Most of the stuff I find here is decent quality with the prices being reasonable for nyc.
Always fresh service is ok the owner seems to have a passing knowledge of beer the other workers seem to be new to craftbeer.
Always a great experience definitely a place to check out with an unlimited and always new selection

There are grocery stores with a great beer selection, and then there's Eagle Provisions. Wow. This place takes it to a whole new level. You'd never know it, either, because it's all packed (and I mean PACKED) into a corner of the store.
Everything is tidily stacked close to the ceiling, and there is just a ton of stuff. Sixers and bombers fight for space on shelf after shelf -- tons of bottles from the British Isles, Germany, Belgium, East and West coast American, lagers, ales, stouts, fruit beers, you name it. All stocked and stacked with care and precision.
The good: tons of bombers. The good and the bad: tons of tantalizing sixers, which the owner told me couldn't be broken up into singles. They used to be able to do it, he said, when they had 500 different varieties. Now that they carry 1500 (!), it's just not feasible.
They also have very weird pricing on some of their items. Some bottles were a full $4 more than Thrifty American, some were $4 less. But if you're familiar with what things should go for, you'll be okay.
I think the store's just beginning their foray into beer heaven, and the service reflects that. The beer guy over there doesn't seem to be a beer guy, or has just become one recently. He's not sure exactly what you're looking for. But very pleasant and he's definitely willing to help you find something if he can.
Definitely worth a look. We're lucky to have three excellent sources for beer in the Slope/South Slope/Cobble Hill area, including this one.

I stopped in here while visiting a friend who lives around the corner. It's great...very solid Belgian and German selection and then a stunning selection of American craft beer. Emphasis is on the East Coast but you'll find most of the West Coast brews distributed in New York that you might be looking for.
I bought a sixer and three bombers of various Stone beers for 30 bucks...prices are reasonable, even for New York.
One of the owners walked over and said, "What do you think of the beer selection, eh?!" and I said, "A job well done, sir." And that's what it is, a job well done.

Checked out a few places while in NYC a couple weeks ago. Its a little corner grocery store and they advertise that they have 1,000 different beers. There were certainly a lot of different beers to choose from but many of them were in 6 packs and the clerk that I talked to said they would break 6 packs. Plenty of east coast stuff to choose from as well as a very nice German selection and a good Belgian selection. The people were nice and helpful. Would definitely stop in again next year after EBF.

Street parking only, I got lucky and parked 1/2 block away. This is a city grocery store, and you can find a sh*t-ton of beer here, an unbelievable selection. Turning right upon entry to the store, I found an aisle endcap filled with bombers and 6-packs. I spent about 5 minutes looking these over, maybe 100 beers, and thought that was that. But when I looked to the right I saw another room, filled with beer, I'd guess a selection in the range of 300-400 different beers. Lots of New England beers, craft beers from other areas of the US, and a very good selection from Belgium, England, and Germany. Some Czech and Polish beers too. Prices are average for NYC, generally higher than other cities but a little lower than BierKraft (at least for the beers I was looking for).

Finally checked this place out -- been hearing a lot about it and it's on the way from my house to a lot of my friend's places by car, so we checked it out on the way to a barbecue the other week.
Amazing and great selection of beers from around the world. My favorites are mostly American Micros so I checked it out and was pleasantly surprised -- a lot of stuff you only see in Brooklyn at Bierkraft or American.
This place has some beer that isn't the freshest, but if you know your stuff, you can make out like a bandit.
A nice enough place with no service to speak of, reasonable prices, and a good alternative for when you don't feel like going all the way into the Slope for beer. Most good American, Belgian, and German beers available in NYC are here -- check it out.

I gave the place a "5" for selection, because you have to take into account that you're in the little Polish market in the middle of nowhere, relatively speaking, in Brooklyn. The service I'll give a "3" for, because I didn't receive any service, but I didn't ask for any. They muse have a knolwedgeable beer person tucked away somewhere.
To boot, this place has got a great deli in the back, where you can pick up kielbasa, pierogis, golumbkis, and some of the best smoked bacon I've ever had.
I will certainly be back... the easiest way to get there sans car is the B63 5th Avenue bus (Stops right in front), or the M and R subway line, Prospect Ave. stop, from which it is about a three long-block walk north to the store. With a car, this place is not too far off the Prospect Expressway.

Whereas Bierkraft is more focused on American beers, Eagle has a large focus on European productions, as well as the American ones. There are plenty of German and British tasties here and a lot of Eastern Block brews. Because of Eagle, I had a chance to try a lot of Baltic Porters from the actual region, many of whom you would not have a chance to try elsewhere (not that you would want to in some cases). Beyond the German, British, Eastern Block, and American productions, there is a lot of Belgian stuff here as well.
Service is about what you expect. This is a Polish supermarket by the way.
If you want a wide variety of things, this is definitely a place to hit. We've even got the unusual countries you don't see too often: Ukraine, Lithuania, Estonia, and a whole lot more.
Bierkraft is farther down 5th Avenue. If you have a car, you definitely should hit Eagle up as well. Be aware they close early as they keep supermarket hours.

I was simply in awe when I walked in to their beer section. When I first stepped into the cramped, old supermarket, I thought I was in the wrong place. I took a turn to the right and I was in beer heaven. 7-foot shelves of beers, just completely crammed in. Very well stocked, very well maintained.
When you walk in you see an above average selection of the typical American micros: Sam Adams, Brooklyn (Pilsener, Weisse, Chocolate Stout, and other harder-to-find ones), Blue Point, Sierra Nevada (including their wheat beer, which I hardly see any more of), Dogfish Head (almost everything but their 120 IPA), Magic Hat, tons of Saranac, Stone (Ruination, Pale Ale, and 22's of their Old Guardian), Goose Island, etc.
I'm huge on American brews; I don't really have the stomach for stronger ales from overseas, but that's just me. But even I could appreciate the floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall coverage of their foreign beers. Westmalle, Rochefort 6 and 8 (no 10, sorry), tons of St. Bernardus, and a slew of others. The walls were literally filled to capacity with Belgian beer.
Then of course you have your typical Blue Moon's, Yuengling's, etc. And after that your macros, but not a huge stockpile of them like you normally see in some corners of beer stores.
This place amazed me to no end. The store is small, but the selection is uncanny! If you're in Brooklyn, you need to stop by here! My only negative comment may be that if you're just looking to buy rare singles and such, this would be a great place. But if you're looking for some bargains on beers you already know you like, consider going to American Beer, not too far from this location. The prices are reasonable here, but only because the vast majority of their selection is rarer singles, and not bulk local stuff.

Further down 5th ave from Bierkraft lies Eagle Provisions. It is basically a grocery/variety Eastern European store. b ut when you walk to your right upon entering you are transported into a world of great beer.
First come the Americans, you have your Rogues, Blue Point, Brooklyn, southern Tier, Ithaca, Great divide, Flying Dog, Stone, Weyerbacher, bear Republic, Dogfish head, Avery and so many more. The best part about these was that it was almost their whole bottled lineup of each beer. From what I saw they had aevery quality beer that ships to NYC.
Next up were the foreigns divided into country. Many out of the way places for beer were represented like Morocco, Malta and Lithuania. The Eastern European section was fairly large as you could get beer from almost every country.
English, Germans and Belgians were in full effect too. They also had the full lineup of Unibroue, Hitachino Nest, and a healthy selction of bier De Gardes. Most of which I was not familiar with.
Great selection, maybe the best I have ever seen. Service was alrighth, no one really bothered with me but the cash register lady was pleasant enough. I will definitely make another trek out here when possible.
