If you live in Brooklyn and happen to be a beer guzzling foodie like myself, you should know about Grab. The small specialty food shop opened just a few months back in Park Slope. They have a wonderful selection of cheeses, meats, chocolates and beer. And now they offer beer growlers featuring different brews each week. Today I stopped in for bread and olive oil and John Hodgman let me cut in line in front of him.
At the other end of the Slope is Bierkraft. Much like Grab, they offer an amazing assortment of specialty food items, however they’ve been around for many years now. While both shops are worth knowing about, Bierkraft does boast a larger selection of beers and chocolate, as well as a more pleasant staff.
