Country bumpkin Alaskan hit the big city and really liked this place. I thought I might get chucked out when I saw the sign in the window speaking of "appropriate attire" or something like that, but I was permitted entrance. It is more upscale than most places I frequent, but it's all about the beer so far as I'm concerned. 70 taps, a couple of casks and extensive bottle list. With exception of some high end Belgians and other special brews, most are served in 20oz imp pints for $6.5 to $7, which is reasonable for midtown Manhattan, I think. Flights of 4 4.5oz beers for $10 is a good option, but unavailable when they are busy (menu says 6-10pm). Service was good but unexceptional with exception of a BA manager who chatted beer and gave me some samples. I hit most most of the more well known beer bars in the big city and found this to have the best selection.
