The beers here are quite good if a little on the safe side. I had the Cluster IPA, English Barleywine, Kolsch and some samples of the other stuff and I can vouch for all of them, just wish they would try doing some sours or big stouts for variety. They also have a very decent selection of aged single malts (i.e. Lagavulin 15, Talisker 10, Laphroig 12 double cask, etc) for reasonable prices per glass ($10-15).The atmosphere is really gorgeous, especially the upstairs dinning room with the hippie/arts-and-crafts woodwork and the beautiful pressed tin ceiling and old-fashioned skylight. The food was a bit of a disappointment, i.e. my wifes caprese pizza combined fresh mozarella and very decent crust with canned black olives, and the chips in my fish and chips were frozen french fries dusted with corn starch. Points for having malt vinegar tho.

Good venue in downtown New Brunswick. Lots of local parking nearby. Creatively used older building with a small bar area, and dining spread around multiple floors. We had seven beers on tap, with a taste them all sampler option. Some pretty good options, including the sour saison and the Kolsch. Good sized menu with variations for lunch and dinner. Service was prompt and friendly. Growlers to go available.

Overall: we were here a Mon. afternoon so we bellied up no problem. Place was clean, our bartender was attentive and knowledgeable about the beers (offered free small samples when we inquired about beers). As for the beers: witbier reminded me (fondly) of Avery White Rascal. Black IPA was good but stood in the shadow of my latest crush (dark penance by Founders). The nose on the sour reminded me of a resiling, decent flavor (passion fruit). My dude drank the Gose but it was too salty for my palate. We would stop in again if we were in the area but wouldn't drive there specifically for the pours or food.
