One of the other joints I checked out while we were in NY. Place was surprisingly crowded for a Wednesday night and was just as loud as the other gastropubs/brewpubs we hit up during our vacation, which is why I'm giving this place a 3.5 for atmosphere.
Beer: I've seen better selections at other places (Rattle-N-Hum, The Ginger Man, Good Beer, etc.) but there was a vast variety of beer styles to choose from, just not many of each style.
Service: Ordered at the bar, so no comment on service.
Food: Didn't order food, so no comment on food.
Price: Price was average for a pint, nothing ridiculously overpriced.
A place worth hitting up for different beers, especially if you're from out of town.

Alot of similarities (if it aint broke-dont fix it) with its west side sister bar. This is a fine addition to the limited upper east side, NYC craft beer bar scene. They typically have a high quality tap list of BA worthy options as well as getting "hot" beers like Stone Enjoy By IPA, which was super nice to find and enjoy on tap.
Quality drafts in a relaxed and pleasant setting. We paired a few pints here with dinner at one of several close by Thai food restaurants.
Obvious choice if you find yourself in this part of town. Well worth a visit.
