Young man I say, "gat dam!" It is a good thing it is on the other side the river, because if it were closer to home, my wallet and liver would be done fer. It never disappoints, ever.

Best line up around, and that's why we line up. It is always poppin, especially during wednesday events (which are unreal) and other beer geek gatherings. Get on the mailing list and plan your schedule accordingly around theirs.

I have really only encountered solid folks in here, unlike other establishments around the surrounding boros. It would be easy to get pissy over waiting a hot minute in a shoulder to shoulder joint, but when you are waiting for beer this good and this fresh, why?

Tasty food that changes with the seasons, as it should. Everything I have eaten there has been pleasurable. There is a bite for every brew to complement, even you veggie- centric folk.

If you are in Manhattan, and can only hit one spot, make sure it is here.

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.
