Beer enthusiasts of the world unite! There's a new beer shop in NYC that besides of offering 700 of different kinds of beer has a very strong and amazing corporate identity: Top Hops.

Along the design team, architects, environmental designers and beer connoisseurs worked to create this unique and bold expression of their passion for beer.

Beauty is in the details and certainly Top Hops has nailed it, an attractive little bar that relies on its passionate dedication to beer.
