A craft beer oriented bar located in midtown Manhattan. I stopped in here at about 1AM on a Saturday night/ Sunday morning. It is a fairly large place with a wood paneling and beer paraphernalia on the walls. The bar is very long with a few tables along the other side of the wall. In the back is a lounge room with some more tables. It was full when I went in but not packed. We were able to grab some seats at the end of the bar. They have a printed menu that looks like it's updated daily. They have ~70 beers on tap and well over 100 bottles. The beer list if excellent, absolutely top notch. As soon as we sat down a waitress came and took our order. This was awesome as we didn't have to fight at the bar for the bartenders attention. A lot of the beers come in 20 oz imperial pints and are priced in the $6 to $7 range which is pretty damn good for NYC. I really liked this place, I definitely recommend it.

This place is awesome! A beautiful midtown pub with a classic looking wood bar decor and cool retro pictures. The real deal for NY ambience and not a cheesy tourist trap unlike some of its midtown neighbors.
The selection is overwhelmingly huge! There is a printed menu, updated daily, as well as a chalk board that lists beers from all styles imaginable. I had a Belgian style Tripel and an IPA, both excellent. They also have food. One of my companions was having a hot dog with sauerkraut. Later, we ordered a hot pretzel that was to die for!
This is a big and crowded bar. Normally I shy away from these types of places, but the crowd was mature, (no frat boys or meat heads), the noise level was reasonable and luckily I was able to get a seat. I have to hand it to the barmaids! As I said, the place was packed and they were slammed with orders. Yet they were able to stay attentive and I had no trouble getting my orders.

Best Mid-Town bar. Casket-treated beers are awesome. Excellent whiskey menu also!

Had some time to kill waiting for my train from Penn Station, so I picked this place over the other pubs on the same street based on their advertisement for Sierra Nevada Beer Camp. Silly but I guess advertisement works.

Atmosphere - Nice and comfortable, booths, tables, or bar. I chose table by an outlet to recharge phone.

Quality - Club sandwich was tasty, perfect to compliment my flight of four beers

Service - Waitress was knowledgable and friendly.

Beer selection was great, had beers not available in NH.

Overall I would recommend and go back if in the area again.
