I stopped in becuase my hotel was close by hoping to score some gems to take home. When I walked in it is a very tiny supermarket packed full of essentials. That was why I was surprised to see a full isle (both sides) dedicated to beer. One side had the warm beer and the other side had an open cooler with a good number of singles.

I was hoping to score some East Coast Gems that everyone else had passed up but that was not the case. I still walked out with a good number of beers. They had lots of good session beers from all over the world with many as 12 oz bottles aswellas bombers. They didn't have any beers from local brewers that I couldn't find in other groceries. I found some beers from Slyfox in PA that I hadn't seen other places and a few seasonals but not many.

The checkout space up front is very small and they don't do much to protect the beers as they pile them all in a single plastic bag but they get you out of there in a hurry so it is not bad.

I still go back to Pioneer when I am in the area and I still walk out with a sack of beer.

The Pioneer is a seemingly old-school neighborhood supermarket that clearly hasn't been upkept/cleaned since the late 70's, but their beer selection is second to none. And their prices are excellent, especially considering that you're in NYC and on the Upper West Side.
They sell everything by the bottle and six pack, and their selection spans 6 continents and pretty much every style and variety I've ever seen. All of the excellent American Craft brews are available, classic Belgians, most major and some not so familiar German beers...Seriously, they've got it all. I'd like to recommend the Baltika #6...they sell it for $.69 per half liter bottle. It's a steal.
And if you like groceries, their prices are good too. But the beer is definitely the stand out.
