4.5/5 rDev +3.9%
A - The atmosphere was nice here. Went a couple times. Once on a friday night and once on a tuesday afternoon. Friday night was pretty packed but service was not impacted. They stayed true to the quality and care of proper glassware and pours.
Q - All beers I had were top notch. The selection was well thought out and they really knew what they were getting. They were not biased to the common favorites, but knew what was good and went out of their way to get their hands on it. Some beers for example (fantome) are very hard to get these days. Shelton Bros' stopped carrying it for a while. I'm not sure if they are carrying it again, but Brouwers had 3 or 4 different ones from that brewery. I was highly impressed. Their tap selection was also equally impressive with some hard to find beers on tap, let alone in bottles.
S - Excellent bartender to patron ratio. Well versed in beer history and proper servings. Food was excellent and complimented the beers very well.
S - What else is there to say. This is the best selection I have seen so far in a beer bar. By far the best. I have been to many nyc beer bars, and they dont come close. Most dont even carry vintages like brouwers does.
F - Excellent food. Artisinal menu I would say. Not many places serve gravlocks or even know what it is. It was a nice surprise.
V - Decent value. The local beers were cheap... 4-5$. The rare beers and bottles were a little pricey but thats to be expected from such rare beers. 24$ or so for a bottle of fantome (750ml).
Overall i would say there should be more places like this. Its too bad I would need to travel to seattle just to find one. :(
