Met a fellow BA for lunch while in town. Pretty good tap selection, the bottle prices were high IMO. Food was pretty good as well. If you are in the area check it out.
Cheers

Stopped in for a planning session/escape from a large group tour. I was pleased with the variety of beers but somewhat surprised by the prices. Service was OK, selection was decent. We didn't need to eat, so I can't comment on the food. It was convenient to our hotel, but I wouldn't travel across the city to visit.

Large selection with brewery-led events, but pricey, super loud and obnoxious crowd, and a staff who may or may not know very much about what you are ordering. Good for the selection, meh for just about everything else

I've trashed this place in the forums enough so it's time to do the same in the reviews. Haven't been here for a year or so but the [bad] memories linger. Out of the 4 times I did find myself here, I got the wrong beer twice. To add insult to injury, the bartender told me I was out of my mind. Hell, once I ordered an IPA and got something entirely different. The bottom line is that this place is spacious and does have outdoor roof top seating but it's the biggest tourist trap in the city. And the prices suck. There are usually at least several beers that are $1 or more per beer than pretty much anywhere in NYC. There are at least 3 other places within short walking distance [District Taphouse, New York Beer Company and Shorty's]. Take your beer business to them.
