Between the sheer variety of options and the friendly staff to help you figure out what you like, Top Hops Beer Shop on the LES is the ultimate gateway beer bar experience. Even if you’re savvy enough to recognize the taste of galaxy hops, we’d still recommend asking the staff what they’re currently excited about. Considering there are 700 cans and bottles to choose from (not including whatever’s on draft), you might want some help narrowing it down.
