Luckily I checked BA while I was in New Haven this past week or I would not have known about this new beer bar right in the middle of downtown. I didn't see any local advertising, for what is one of the most significant additions to the downtown area. Also, if anybody is reading this from there, somebody needs to update the website. From what the bartender said, the bar has been open for several months, but the website still says "coming soon." Also, the website says that it is "on the campus of Yale," as if it is a campus bar, but this location is actually blocks away from Yale, right in the middle of a city block. This actually threw me off the first night that I looked for this bar and I ended up at Richter's instead. Of note; I didn't ask to confirm, but I think that this may have been opened by the owners of the Playwright bars. I say this because there was a big poster hanging inside of Prime 16, advertising the Playwright just a couple of doors down the street.

The beer list here is excellent, if maybe somewhat lacking of some local selections on tap. I didn't find the staff to be very knowledgeable about the beers, but they were definitely trying. Also, they were more than happy to pour samples of anything, which I didn't really expect in the middle of downtown. They have their own beer listed on the board, so I asked about it. They said that it is brewed for them by Opa Opa, but warned that this was made intentionally to pour for people asking for Bud.

They have a small selection of top shelf liquors, which is nice because my girlfriend wants these options and took advantage of a gin drink.

I wish that I had more time than just the two beers that I had. Next time that I am in New Haven, I will have to try the food.
