Welcome to Beer Street

Beer Street

How cute are those half growlers?

I was walking the dog down Graham Avenue a few days ago when I noticed that the shop next to Waffle & Wolf finally opened: Beer Street – a new craft beer shop that sells beers by the can, bottle, and growler. This is clearly a trend – the opening of Beer Stop on Kingsland and there’s another shop on Meeker – but I have a good feeling about this place. I stepped in with the pooch and we had a sniff about the shop. They’ll be switching out the taps frequently, putting different beers in the rotation for you to taste (out of half-pint mason jars) and take home. Since I like anything in miniature, my favorite part of the whole operation is the half-growlers. I don’t drink much beer, but when I do, I want it in one of these nicely shaped brown bottles made to take home and share.

You can see what’s on tap at Beer Street on their website or on their twitter feed, @beerstreetny.  I recommend stopping in and chatting with the crew, all very friendly people.
