Is it a beer store with a bar, or a bar with a beer store? Does it matter? The Alphabet City Beer Co. is both a craft beer store and bar in the East Village, offering patrons more than enough reasons to visit. Among them: 12 constantly rotating taps available by the pint, half pint, or growler, over 350 varieties of craft beer, all available to go, and a limited food menu consisting of meats, cheeses, and fresh bread that are also available to go. With all this on-site, though, why would you leave?
