This place is by far one of the best out there. It is a classic bar focused on really great beer. Dimly lit, great music and all about the beer. They have 30 + beers on tap, most of which rotate with a high level of frequency. You can try a wide variety of beers from week to week without breaking the bank, as their prices are always reasonable -hey they want to give people access to great beer, and one way to do that is offer great beers at a great price; which they definitely do.
On tap they have plenty of locals, but plenty of international and nationals as well. Most all the bartenders know quite a bit about the beers they serve and are all fantastic to look for advice as to what to drink for the mood you are in as well as just sit back and chat with. The bottle selection is amazing for this rather little place; with a bottle list that puts most bottle shops to shame. While they don't cook food at the bar itself and I haven't actually had any food there, you can order food from the restaurant above the bar and they will bring it to you. From I have heard from fellow bar goers it is very good.
If you are in the State College area and looking for a relaxing and great place to have a beer you must come here. It is great!!!!

In from NH and first spot I hit was Zeno's...
Cool basement entrance and doorman waiting to card, though not carded...must be the grays. Small to medium main room, with small game room off to the side. Trivia night was in full swing. Very small bar with all stools occupied...few open tables but being solo really wanted a bar spot. Tap list was fantastic, bottle list even better!! Lots of hard to come by beers...Bourbon County Barleywine & Stout, Plethora of Duck Rabbit, Nugget Nectar, Hair of the Dog: Otto, Michael, Adam annnd Fred! Really great stuff!
Bartender Dave was super busy but still made time to chat beer, pluss let me sample a few unlisted items that were real treats! Thanks again!
Band started at 10pm on this Monday night...really great but just wish I could remember the name :)
Had chicken tenders and fry basket...large portions and standard quality. Service was pretty quick.
Prob going back this eve for more...highly recommended
