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.
