Went in on 04/29/11, the night before Dark Lord Day. We came in around midnight and there were open tables, open seats at the bar, and 90's music a playing. As I sat at the bar, someone had put on the entire Nirvana Nevermind cd start to finish, which seemed fitting for the place. Very laid back crowd which was nice, and the bartenders were very nice and on top of things.
Selection was very good, though I would say a slight step down from Hopleaf, especially in the bottle section. Reasonably priced, though the place is cash only. Overall I liked this place a lot. I would probably give Hopleaf a slight edge on this place as I thought their beer selection was better, which is why we're at these bars, though I liked the atmosphere here a lot. Since you can walk there from Hopleaf it is definitely worth a trip to.

Opens at 6am for coffee and pastries. Starts serving beer at 11am. This place is absolutely lovely during the day with open windows during nice days. I, personally, avoid the weekends and nights. Too many amatuers. World class beer list and a very nice staff.
