NEW YORK CITY | Craft Beer & Smoke Shop is unlike any craft beer store we’ve ever visited before. Walk inside the unassuming storefront and the first thing that hits you is that this place is cold. As in, the air conditioning is making sure that all of those beers on the shelves are staying at an acceptable temperature. Speaking of, the next thing you notice is the beer.
Craft Beer & Smoke Shop resembles a convenience store, with hundreds of beers in its fridges and on its shelves. Even more impressive is that the front counter has a tap system where you’ll find a rotating selection of fresh and interesting beers. The owner Munaf (Maf) is super friendly and knowledgeable, and loves talking all things beer, and explaining what he’s got in that’s new and interesting. Indeed, this is one of the best places for takeaways in Brooklyn, with an assortment of core range, seasonal and limited beers from local breweries like Other Half, Evil Twin, and Six String along with beers from the rest of the USA and further afar.
Smoking isn’t our thing, but we noticed a lot of smoking parephenalia too, as one would expect given the name of the shop. We’ve been assured by those in the know that the selection of papers, cigars and smoking accessories at Craft Beer & Smoke Shop is one of the best in the area.
