Yes, you may still find Bud tallboys holding down one corner fridge case, but Dharmesh Chokshi’s new BR Specialty Beer Store offers 500 other bottles of beers for the rest of us.

“All of our beers were rated 95 percent or higher on Beeradvocate.com,” Chokshi said, adding that he spent considerable time roaming the borough’s best bars before putting together his own shopping list.

As a result, BR’s offerings extend well beyond the full line of popular alt-brews like Dogfish, Rogue and Chimay to add organic craft beers and Belgian ales, plus an extensive line of wintertime strong brews that come in at more than eight percent alcohol.

With 11 refrigerator doors filled top to bottom, picking out a cold one might take a while. But here’s an important mitigating factor: BR offers a dollar discount on all six-packs.

BR Specialty Beer Store [7201 Third Avenue at 72nd Street in Bay Ridge, (718) 745-5609].

Reasonable discourse

Arnold Broccoli from Bay Ridge says:
Sounds excellent, I am really excited about the wide variety of specialty beers this store will offer. Can't wait to check it out.

Will there also be specialty foods to go along with the specialty beers?

Growler Service- Excellent. Wonder if that will anyoy the Local Pubs- it shouldn't.

Pat, the local pubs have plenty of business, I don't think they'll feel any threat from this place.
