What they are saying on Yelp!

5.0 star rating - 9/14/2013

I don't review much, but I had to review American Beer. Not only do they have beers that I couldn't find anywhere else in the city, but they also are helpful and personable.


5.0 star rating - 5/15/2013

Old school place that has beer that I love and an awesome deal on growlers. I know they have growlers in the area for other places but I still have no idea why you'd want to go anywhere else. Go here. Try a beer that you're wondering where it's from or ask them and they'll recommend something. This is the place you want to go to if you like beer.


5.0 star rating - 12/14/2012

Pretty much got every type of beer you want plus one of the few places that will sell you kegs!

Lots of great local microbrews too.

A definite spot for serious beer drinkers


5.0 star rating - 6/19/2011

One of the real hidden gems of Brooklyn. By far the most extensive selections of beer in the city and the best prices too.

Kegs, mini kegs, imports, you name it, they probably either have or can get it.

You could literally spend an hour in there looking at all the different brands. Plus they sell mixers as well.

William Gillen and Patricia McKenzie, August 1993

"This bright and clean Cobble Hill shop is a real winner. Not only do they have good prices and an extensive selection (hundreds of different beers), but it's obvious that the owners care about the products they are selling."
