If you’re still recovering from Craft Beer Week, then you might want to avert your eyes: In two weeks’ time, should all go according to plan, Good Beer NYC will open on East 9th Street.
While walking by earlier this afternoon, we happened to encounter the store/bar’s owner, David, an amiable guy who told us that he’ll be selling a fairly mind-blowing 900 varieties of beer. He’s focusing on domestic brews with an emphasis on the Northeast, but he’ll also carry a selection from countries like Belgium and Germany. Regardless of its origin, all of the beer will be craft beer — Coors, Budweiser, and their dubious corporate ilk are not welcome here.
In addition to bottles there will be growlers, and the bar will have 12 beers on tap, accompanied by a selection of small plates. David’s hoping to open on October 23, assuming he receives his SLA license in a timely fashion. Wait, an East Village establishment dedicated entirely to the sale of alcohol was able to get CB3’s approval for a license? “I didn’t have a problem — I have early hours,” David explained. Drinkers with similarly early hours are encouraged to make their way to 422 East 9th Street to partake.
