When I can’t get to a brewery to drink craft beer I go to one of the many craft beer bars in the city. City Hops is one that is on the way home from work (kind of sort of). They are a craft beer store with a bar, so you can buy a can or bottle (or 2 or 3) to take home. You can get a draft beer to drink there, or you can have your can or bottle opened (for a slight fee, depending on the price of the beer). They also fill growlers, either your own or you can buy one there, they have 32 oz, 64 oz, and 128 oz(seriously! I think that one is kind of a joke). This is a rather small spot, with a decent selection, kind of dark and there is a column right in front of the bar. It also seems to have a lot of regulars.

They are by no means unique in offering cans and bottle to go, a quick look through Google I found at least 6 in various parts of the city and the other boroughs. Some serve food and some don’t. City Hops doesn’t, but Subway Inn across the street from them will deliver.

On this night I had KCBC/Barrier Crypto Currency, Grimm Artisanal Ales Sunroof, and Mikkeller Brewing San Diego Misty Elliott. Mikkeller does have an NYC brewery, I had already sampled the NYC ones. I couldn’t find a website, but they have Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Links are below. Enjoy the pictures below and check out City Hops!

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
