Domino: Best of Atlantic Ave. – May, 2016
Part bar, part bottle shop, this super-friendly spot is the perfect place to sample local craft beers and take your favorites to go. Whether you’re a novice or a beer geek, the helpful staff will point you in the right direction with samples from one of the 16 rotating taps, many representing the boroughs — a Flagship American Wit, an LIC Beer Project saison, or an Other Half IPA (brewed in Staten Island, Queens, and less than two miles away in Brooklyn, respectively.) Pro-tip: there’s a no-frills patio in the back, on sunny days drink al fresco.

I paid a visit to St. Gambrinus, the well stocked and extremely welcoming bar and bottle shop on Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill, to ask owner Ray Darmstadt for some recommendations. Here’s how he thinks you should get through the week…
Brooklyn Brew Shop – April, 2016
As soon as I walk into St. Gambrinus Beer Shoppe, its woodsy, cozy, dimly lit interior makes me want to stay for hours. With exposed brick, small, iridescent hanging lights on the right wall above a dark oak bar, and even a backyard (now open!), there’s many a place to settle down for a night – or day – of drinking.

Huffington Post – May, 2015
The studio is no longer the only place to find yoga in your city. Yoga is expanding into offices, parks, and even local shops. Lululemon and Athleta were among the first stores to jump on in-store yoga events, and it makes sense: yoga and fitness enthusiasts flock to a store for a class, and are surrounded by the lovely goodies around them in the shop. Even if a participant doesn’t buy something at the event, they will have a positive experience associated with the business. This trend is moving beyond just attracting new customers to fitness wear stores. In New York City, yoga is being offered during off hours in local shops.
Where’s the Beer NY – April, 2014
St. Gambrinus is known as the patron saint of beer and an icon of brewing. The bar, on Atlantic Avenue between 3rd and 4th Avenues in Brooklyn, does his name proud.

Edible Brooklyn – October, 2013
In late August, four self-proclaimed “beer geeks” joined forces to set up shop in Boerum Hill. St. Gambrinus Beer Shoppe, named after the legendary patron saint for brewers, has been an immediate hit with locals. Tucked among national chains and big businesses, the shoppe is a welcome addition to Atlantic Avenue.
St. Gambrinus is a bar and a retail shop. The bar features sixteen rotating taps of specialty brews. A number of the beers currently on tap are local, including Bulkhead India Red Ale and Caddy Wompus Nitro from Barrier Brewing Company in Oceanside, Long Island, and Resin and Righteous Ale from Sixpoint Brewery in Red Hook. In addition to the many beers available at the retail shop, patrons can take home growlers of tap beer or mix-and-match six-packs.

St. Gambrinus Beer Shoppe opened up just about a month ago in Boerum Hill with the promise of craft beer for all — and according to many, it has delivered.
The shop, co-owned by four self-proclaimed beer geeks, opened its doors at 533 Atlantic Avenue at the end of August. It specializes in craft beer with 16 rotating beers on tap and is named after the legendary patron saint for brewers.
