Never even heard of this place until my buddy mentioned it on the way to the city. He wanted to hit it before dinner and the Louis CK show. We didn't stay long. I only had two beers. Left Hand Milk Stout and a Dreadnaught, both from tap. If my memeory is correct, I believe they had anywhere between 12-15 taps running that day. I might be wrong. I do remember the selection being very good and full of stuff you usually don't find at your corner Binny's. The atmosphere was very unassuming, nothing special. As with most places like this, the bartenders were friendly and knowledgable.

Overall, I liked this place, it's relatively small, and I would hate to see it busy, but it is definitely a good place to hang when in the area.
