A great hybrid bar and beer store on the same block as Alewife.

Directions - 7 train to Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue, walk south briefly on Vernon Boulevard, turn right on 51st Avenue. Alternatively, G train to 21st Street-Van Alst, walk south-west on Jackson Avenue (go straight ahead on Jackson Avenue past the entrance to the Pulaski Bridge), veer to the right onto 51st Avenue just before the road ends.

Alex says

A good little bar-store hybrid, complementing Alewife (q.v.) almost opposite. At the time of writing, there are just over 200 craft bottles to choose from but there will be 6 beers on tap soon with future plans for 21. (2/2016)
