ran into this deli looking for a quick bite and ended up with a
very tasty Cuban sandwich, but the real story here is not the
Boars Head meats on the deli sandwiches! What we found is a shop
filled with beer. The owner was extremely proud of the fact that
there is no wine, liquor or any alcohol other than beer! We also
looked around on the Internet and found that Swann Avenue
Express is pretty highly regarded among beer aficionados.
While I was waiting for my Cuban
sandwich to be hot pressed, I started looking around. When
I asked how many kinds of beer he sells, the reply was "I don't
know, I think it's close to fifteen hundred or sixteen hundred
kinds of beer." I have no doubt that there are at least fifteen
hundred kinds of beer. The shelves are full floor to ceiling,
aisle after aisle. I saw beers from every continent on earth.
Most everything is out of case and available so that you can
build your own six pack. A brilliant idea. Many are labeled mix
and match buy two get the third (of equal or lesser value) free.
Swann Avenue Express also sells
glasses and everything the beer connoisseur needs to make
drinking brew into more than just a pass-time. When you get in
the area, stop by and build your own six-pack.
