Hercules, the man behind Hercules Fancy Grocery, is a genuine find. Besides stocking some of the finest beers and ales our humble globe has to offer, he knows EVERYTHING about each and every one and will often recommend similar brews. His selection is expansive and rare in its quality and variety. I'm fortunate enough to live 'round the corner from him, and he knows exactly what I'm coming in for when I enter the shop. His prices are very low, and he's a gracious shopkeeper, pleased greatly by repeat customers.
Hercules Fancy Grocery is at Morton Street and Seventh Avenue South, about two blocks south of Bleecker Street in the Village. Visit him; you won't regret it!
Pros: Friendliness, Selection, Price
Cons: 24/7 would be great
