Visited this gem on three occasions while I visited NYC, short trip but still beer was going to form an essential part of it.

Located in fairly central manhatten this bar is just across the road from the empire state and very easy to find.

A brilliantly warm atmosphere greets you as you enter, the bar contains elements of an old style pub but also blends modern features and elements, it all works very well.

The main bar itself is adjacent to the door and is pretty big, supporting the 40 or so taps on offer, all have their various identifying pump handles. The menu was pretty great beer wise while we were there, between myself and my girlfriend we probably had 12-15 types. Beers range from $6 - $10 on tap, 6 generally being the sub 6% ales and the $10 being very strong super brews such as massive barleywines or triple IPA type beers

Some of the standout brews I had while I was there were oaked arrogant bastard, ruination, storm king stout, 90min ipa and southern tier backburner. While I'm writing this I have the beer menu infront of me, stained with the darkest storm king stout, the smell is pretty potent even now....

Patrick the owner is a great guy to deal with, sorting me out with a few bottles to take home including peche mortel, nogne imperial stout and stone bitter chocolate oatmeal stout.

In addition to the main bar Patrick has now built a small cask bar towards the rear. Currently 3 casks on, tried the Two Brothers IPA, pretty tasty. Feels strange having cask outside of Ireland and the UK, brilliant though.

While your there definatly check out the food, very affordable and great accompaniment to the beer. I haad a sirloin with fries and my girlfriend had a sizeable buffalo chicken wrap, both tasty. On another visit we had some nachos and mini sliders, both brilliant when enjoying a beer flight ( 4 8oz servings from the tap list for $16)

Was hoping for a friendly new york beer bar serving some great, fresh local beers and thats exactly what I got. Great environment and service, superb beer list...plus good to see Ireland having some representation in the beer bar scene in NY. I'll definatly be back,.... hopefully asap.

I have been coming/going here for some 5 years.

As someone who was working in the restaurant business for over 20 years I became the go to guy when the posse wanted to get together here in NYC. I had just been introduced to craft beer, after years of chasing & fretting over how to maintain a consistant supply of wines that I liked.

I got the call to "find a place where we (the guys) could get together that was close to the theater district so the gals, who were going to the theater, could find their way after the show."

When they said it was to be on Saturday night, I tried to beg off as I NEVER go near Mid-town Manhattan on the weekends.

Another great beer bar, good food, great beer, and cask beer. I stayed down the street from here for a month and frequented this place quite a bit. The staff is friendly, and the beer is good. My favorite beer bar in Manhattan.
