Though the initial excitement has worn off, this place is solid for three observed reasons: the bottle list, the tap list, and the atmosphere. I wish I could add parking. The bottle list because of special European availability, though no longer the European only Cantillons. The tap list because of the great selections of Europe and the USA as well as a good and not overwhelming selection of the Evil Twins. The lower comfortable bar and comfortable major league service. Excitement will surely pick up with the upcoming restaurant.

Nice place, great beer selection. Quite a bit of ET on tap, which is to be expected and I am not complaining. Food was great (Confited Duck sandwich was awesome). Atmosphere was not much to talk about, meaning the staff was a little stiff, which rubs we the wrong way. Not a 100 Rating in my humble opinion, but I would frequent if I live close by. Better places in NYC IMO.

Can nobody see this place for what it is... the tasting room for a gypsy brewer?

The bar room is over-designed. The herringbone wood inlay that is EVERYWHERE you look gives me headache, and the mirrors above the back bar with the beers written on them is quite possibly the stupidest design element I've ever seen in a bar. You can't read the writing.

Bartenders and crowd are the most insufferable beer snobs you will ever have the misfortune of spending what could have been quality drinking time with.

Different beer styles being poured at different temperatures, although gimmicky, is a good idea.

Now that Evil Twin is being distributed more widely, my advice is to drink those delicious stouts in better bars.
