Good Beer is closing

Several bummed-out Good Beer fans told us that the retail shop on Ninth Street between Avenue A and First Avenue is closing.

Owner David Cichowicz confirmed to EVG contributor Steven that Good Beer will shut down in the days ahead, depending on the inventory. 

The shop apparently couldn't recover from the COVID-related closures and subsequent slowdown in business. 

In an appreciation post from April 2020, EVG reader Abfus had this to say: 
As the name suggests, Good Beer has always stocked an impeccable selection of domestic and international beer across every style. And it gets deliveries from local breweries several times a week, so you can simultaneously support the locally owned store and the city's flourishing brewery scene.
Good Beer first opened in November 2010.

Sad, they had a wide variety of beer available for everyone. Though i never went to the back i heard they had a nice patio for people to enjoy their beer. Need more stores like this in the area, and less smoke shops.

This is a shame, they've got such a great selection and a nice staff. I'll miss their tap list too, there was always something interesting on there.

This is such a loss! This sucks. This is one of a handful of good bottle shops that we have and I've always enjoyed going there.
