Small cool spot on the end of St Marks by tompkins square. Visited on a weekday night, was able to get a stool at the bar, a few people but not that busy. Nice aesthetic.

Small but varied and well curated tap list (about 12 taps), mix of imports and domestics. For me the real treat was finding Kuhnhenn Braggot. Also you can do tasters in a set of 4 I believe, so I sampled some local tri state offering (Carton, Barrier) that I wanted to try. Very generous with water - give you a 40oz bottle - I like this as I always like to balance my beer with a good amount of water.

Very low light level, not really a problem but I actually had to remove my glasses to read the list LOL - that made me feel old.

Also just a tad loud - not in a it bothered and I was solo so I wasn't trying to hold a conversation, but I had a little problem hearing all the details of what the bar tender was saying - he did seem very knowledge though.

Prices are not cheep but in line with what I would expect for EV/NYC.

Overall very worthy of stopping in.

Lower East Side NYC, NY.

Slander covered the details of the room. I'll just add that its small, dark, sorta cramped and on the loud side...I imagine it can get very crowded. I visited at opening time, so no worries for me..

This is a place to get rare beers and to get great service. The bartender, started me out with some water (so smart for bars to pour their customers water, surprised so few do it unless asked) and asked what I liked and guided me to a few selections he thought made sense. Glad he did cuz at least 1/2 of the drafts and bottles were unknown to me. Great service, friendly and very knowledgeable.

About 12 on tap and about 25 bottles. Drafts were reasonably priced for the quality, rarity and location, but many of the bottles were out of my price range (multiple 330 ml bottles from Italy at over $25, some way over...)

I'd stick to the drafts (seems most people were doing just that) go right when they open, so you could get a seat and bring some beer friendly food in next time. (They have no food available, so you can bring what you want in) Would make for a great beer treat....

A friend took me there while in town on business. Small and narrow but a great atmosphere. They have some great beers with 10 or so on tap but the overall numbers are low. I had a Victory Braumeister Pils and a Struise Pannepot Reserva. Well worth a visit. And just a short walk down the street is where they took the photo for Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti album cover.
