Went in on a Sunday around 1:30 pm.

The bar tucked away in the right hand corner of the establishment an there are tables scattered around with a bench that lines the left hand wall of the place.

First of all this bar is in a pretty cool but at the same time kind off touristy neighborhood. The atmosphere itself is very relaxed and informal, homey. There was no table service which was kind of odd since there were like 4 people at the bar (including myself).

The beer selection is pretty good with all domestics on tap and then a pretty big bottle selection which includes some imports. I tried teh mini-Cubano which was really good and had a lot of meat but as the name says it was mini. The beers seemed fresh and lines were pretty clean. I tried an IPA and some Wheat beers.

They had just had a Southampton so they had about 7 or so of their beers ontap but didnt try any as I figured it was left overs fromt eh event.

Overall pretty good place that will get a return visit from myself in the future.

Packed house, miserable in getting a beer. I didn't see one waitress while I was there and I would pay good money to be taken care of in a place like this. Beer selection is top notch. Mixed crowd of college age and blue hairs, so you don't feel out of place if you are older.

This cozy little place on Bleecker Sreet is among my three favorite beer destinations in all of NYC. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff add to the appeal of this fine little pub. Luke the manager is a great guy and always willing to talk about beer and other topics as well. He has always remembered us which I really appreciate. Jillian is a very nice member of the staff who treated us exceptionally well on our most recent visit. Excellent selection of beers which includes cask offerings and sometimes gravity. Tasty food makes this a place where before you know it multiple hours have melted away in very enjoyable fashion. Not to be missed.

This place is outstanding. We stopped by around noon on Friday and it was not too crowded but all the tables were taken when we left. I suggest getting there early or after the lunch rush. Still the staff were knowledgeable and very accommodating as we had a few samples of unfamilier beers. There were about 25 drafts and 2 casks with a wide range of beers. I had the Flying Dog Double Dog IPA cask and my wife had the Smutty Nose Big A. Both were superb. The patrons were friendly and we felt welcomed. The place is cosy, not very large with alot of wood and a good feel to it. I believe all the chairs were stools without backs but we were very comfortable and certainly enjoyed our visit to this great place. This is a must stop if nearby, although we walked many blocks and are glad we did.

Great place with a great selection, but the cramped quarters and thick crowds in a packed house make it a challenge to get served at times. On off nights or afternoons when you can get bar space it is one of the best beer bars in NYC.

I've been there twice. Both times, way too crowded. You have to fight your way to the bar, not be seen by the bartenders as you're now behind a wooden cabinet that houses the beer taps. When you finally get your beer (after the awkward handing over the money, holding the beers, trying to scoop up the change off of the aforementioned beer tap cabinet, count it and leave a tip while holding beers) there is no where to sit, so you just stand in the middle of the room like an idiot, drinking your beer and waiting for someone to get up and free up a seat or bar stool, which never happens. You finish your beer and decide if it's worth it to repeat the whole process or move on to another bar.

The tap list is good, but if you're there during or in the first few days after an event, half the taps might be dedicated to a certain brewery, limiting your options.
