benny finally gets to novare res. in town for a meeting i went here 2 nights. friday it was more crowded and loud. saturday night was surprisingly less busy (there were a lot of people outside) and i really got to look through the bottle menu. overall i was very impressed.

the space itself was nice enough. a few long tables in the middle and some smaller ones about with a long bar. some brewerania about. lots of taps in view and a glass door into the bottle cooler room.

quality and selection were both great. 20 or so taps and i don't even know how many bottles (they had 9 cantillons and that was only half the lambics).

service was decent friday (it was loud and i had some trouble making myself heard). service was very good saturday.

prices were a little high. only a little though. you pay for what you get.

well worth a trip. if you can find it. look for the sandwich board on exchange st.

You don't come here for the food, and that's okay, mostly small plates. Their tap list is always interesting, very Belgian leaning. Their bottle list, especially their rare stuff, is what excites me. Always something interesting and new to try!
