Cool long bar, 39 taps or so. Parked in there for a beer with a buddy. Had myself a lambic and he had a saison. Nice to be able to have that option. Nice mix of locals, a few Belgian and German beers, and other American craft. Unfortunately, there were about 15 taps out, which the bartender said would be all changed within the hour. Well, we were there for an hour and only one got changed. We were going to order one more beer to split, but they were out of the Bam Biere, which had not been crossed off the list. Not really feeling anything else at the time, we paid and peaced. It was pretty quiet there, though it was mid-afternoon on a Monday. I bet it picks up post 5.
I'll go back again for sure, but it was a mildly impressive/disappointing 1st experience there. Excellent bottle selection, too. (805 characters)

I like the summer beer events they have on Tuesdays with different breweries. However, I think the beers are a dollar or two over priced, especially for the beers that are offered in 8oz pours. Also, not nearly enough beers are offered by 16oz glasses. most are 14oz or 12oz. I feel like they nickel and dime the customer that way. Other than that, it's a bar with often a very great selection, and the food menu is very large and diverse. (439 characters)

Went during lunch time so it was pretty quiet. They had some nice beers on draft but I wasn't blown away by their selection.

Service was solid. Would love to visit again next time I'm in NYC. (194 characters)

Decorated like a craft beer lover's college dorm room, with brewery posters and other craft beer memorabilia thrown haphazardly about. Smells like standing water, and is totally overrun by white collar "dudes." BUT. It's still good.

The staff is quick, attentive, knowledgeable, and kind. The drafts rotate often, and the bar does so many tap takeovers and promotional events, that the menu will often feature what feels like the complete lineup of a few select brands. That's not awesome in terms of brand diversity, but it is awesome in that it's like taking a complete tour of a whole new brewery every time you visit.

Despite the aforementioned smell, the glassware is clean, and the taps seem to be well taken care of. Prices are fairly standard for the area. Not low, but hardly exorbitant.

Not really my kind of place in that its vibe and the crowd are very "fraternity," but the specials and the opportunities to really dive deep into the offerings from specific breweries definitely make it worth coming back to. (1,028 characters)

Arrived at lunchtime on a Friday. It was pretty dead when I walked in, but soon enough, the lunch crowd started to arrive and the bar sprung to life. Nice selection on tap. Started off the day with a F0 Brett Farmhouse Ale from Transmitter Brewing, followed by a Pretty Things Jack D'or. Quality of the beers and service was great. The bartender even took her time to pour me the Jack D'or when the keg wasn't working properly. I had the "luck" of having a guy on his lunch break sit next to me at the bar and got completely sloshed before he returned to work. Seemed like a few regulars were sitting at the bar. Overall, a great tap list but probably a better vibe at night than during the day. (695 characters)

Was there in October when they had a Founders tap takeover. Was able to try a lot of the Founders beers that I hadn't yet. Bartender was knowledgeable and they had an excellent bottle list. (192 characters)
