Been here a number of times, but lately I've found myself leaving early and heading a few blocks away to The Ginger Man. Good selection of both draft and bottled beers, though the bottle menu seems to be perpetually outdated. Selection is particularly great when they host tap takeover events.
Love the big chalkboard near the entrance with the "If you like XX beer, then try YY craft beer" chart. More craft beer bars should do this.
Service is pretty average with some staff being extremely knowledgeable and others clueless. Our early-afternoon waiter yesterday seemed puzzled when we ordered one of the Cantillon bottles from the menu, then exclaimed "Oh yeah, the can-TYE-lenn!" ... We also ordered a Peeper Ale from Maine Beer Co, which sported a bottling date of June 2011. Plus it was served to us at damn near room temperature. If our server wasn't clueless, I would have politely informed him that they shouldn't be serving 8-month-old pale ales at a craft beer bar.
Does get crowded quickly, which makes the service even more lackluster. But with all of that said, RnH is a good Midtown bar overall.
