This is an unique place. First off, I walked through a small passageway between two building to the back where they have a bar area along with some tables and chairs.

The bar area was nice, monitors with sports on, comfortable seating, etc.

My primary reason to visit Far Bar was to try Coedo Beniaka which is an elusive Japanese beer style called Happoshu. From my understanding, it is very rare to find this in the States. As such, it does come with a steep price tag. $9 for a small bottle.

I don't remember exactly what they had on tap that day, but I recall it was all decent to good craft beers.

Next time, I would like to try their food.

I finally got a chance to visit far bar today after being on my to-do list for some time now. The location itself is somewhat weird because the address listed on BA will take you to the back bar of the space. When I walked in there was nobody there and I wasn't sure if I was in the right place or not. I was directed to a back space (the front?) where there is a somewhat small space inside and some seating outside. I sat at the bar and the bartenders gave me good service the entire time I was there. The selection of beers is pretty great tap wise and is supplemented by a solid bottle list including a ton of beers from Japan that I have never heard of before. Tickers be aware - there is a happoshu tick here (Coedo Beniaka) if you can stomach the $9 price tag. The quality of the beer was good and served in appropriate glassware. Prices were slightly high with only certain beers being offered in flights. However, I did get some free tasters so that was nice. I would recommend this place but just beware that the parking and location might be a bit confusing if you have never been here before.
