Showed up for my 1st time sort of early on a Saturday evening, so it was not yet busy. We sat at the bar, which is my favorite spot. The place is nothing great to look at, plain tables on the right, with a nice U shaped bar on the left, featuring many, many taps, and a full displayof liquors as well. The table area reminded me of pool hall, but most of the tables were empty when we got there, contributing to this look. The woman working at the bar was very friendly, attentive, good spirited, and very helpful. Food selection was a little weak, withsome sandwiches and some entrees; I guess something for everyone, but just barely?
Beer selection on the other hand was great. Maybe 40 taps, and if you're a hop head, perhaps a dozen IPA's? I had Moylan Hopsickle, Racer 5, Hop Rod Rye, Green Flash Imperial! Also sampled a few others. My wife had the Schneider Aventiuns, yummy!
I had the veggie burger, which was sort of mushy, and herbal tasting. Not terrible, but wouldn't get it again. My wife had a "special of the day" prime rib sandwich which she liked. Actually, we started with fried calamari, which was excellent; cooked just right in a light batter.
The beer selection and service at the bar will draw me back. I just wish parking was a little easier. (1,266 characters)

Great place, excellent background music and an outstanding beer selection. Very hip and chill place, the bartender was knowledgeable, the selection was very well procured with a wide variety and a ton of beers I can't get in NY. Excellent selection on tap and a pretty nice bottle list. Vibe was relaxed and craft beer centric, the bartender was equally willing to pour a stiff drink as he was a tap handle - he was also pouring everyone water at the end of the night, a real pro. Food looked and smelled great, but I didn't have any hence the 3.75 rating. Very cool place, I'll definitely come back. (600 characters)
