Stopped into this place the other night to take advantage of their 2.50$ 12oz draft beer specials. Every night they have 1 or 2 beers on for this price. They have 60 beers on tap, but some are macros like Labatt Blue etc. Still a great selection of draft beers, including Founders which I didn't think was available in NY. They also have a great display case at the front of the bar filled with bombers of all kids of goodies like Alesmith and DFH. Prices were around 5-6$ for a pint of craft and I didn't try the food. The atmosphere is a little seedy but it is what it is.. Anyways, worth stopping in to try some interesting beers.

I'll keep this short. Good bar with a decent atmosphere. The food is serviceable. The beer selection is outstanding and certainly a highlight in syracuse. The bartender and service were also excellent. The bartender made suggestions and gave me tastes of multiple items I was interested in including founders sweet repute and backwoods bastard. They have some of the national standards as well as harder to find brewers in this area such as Jacks Abby and dark horse. There are also multiple taps each for bells, firestone and Avery. Bottle selection is minimal but with over 60 taps there is something for everyone.

A - A step above dive bar, a step below a good Irish pub. Relatively small, but friendly service.
Q - The burger I had was good, but not great. The beer was great.
Ser - Very good service, and when the bar gets busy, the bartender keeps up well. Never did table service, so I can't comment on that. No problem getting a beer (or two or three), quick delivery on the food, and an unsolicited offer for beer samples. Kudos.
Sel - 69 beers on tap. Oh, you need more? Plenty of classics, and plenty of beer I simply cannot get back home. Yeah, maybe Flower Power flows like water in your neck of the woods, or Devil Dancer is the new sliced bread, but I was pretty damn thrilled at the selection. Not just a lot of beer; a lot of GOOD beer.
F - Again, decent, and consistently so. Nothing wrong with the food, but it's a step shy of great.
V - Beer prices were reasonable. Sandwiches looked a bit pricey for pub grub, but the burgers were surprisingly priced pretty low.
Being a non-local, I can hit this place up every day and still try a new brew. The price of the burgers means I won't complain about having my dinner there, either. Some very good beers at a reasonable price.
