I must admit I was disappointed by this place. The taps were not very impressive. I had the Russian River IPA which was damn good and I was anxious to try the only other beer that was worth trying the Stoudt pale ale. But there was only a nice witty older man behind the bar trying to pour beer, sell beer and tend two registers. We waited and waited as did the other patrons and he didn't return to fill pints for a good 20 minutes.
The selection was good but not exceptional with the exception of the german/european selection. The belgian was good-not great. Lots of Stone and Alesmith, including the Decadence which I would have bought but I did not want to wait 20 minutes to pay.
I can see why people like the place but just don't go there thirsty or in a hurry.

This is a wonderful place. What you can't get on tap, you can certainly find in a bottle. The food is fantastic, though I feel it is overpriced. These guys also carry some pretty special beers, so some of the taps are understandably pricey.
Kenny Hollingshead is a wonderful man and he runs a wonderful delicatessen. I try to go here at least once a week to stop by and have a drink and a cheese/meat platter.

Stopped in here yesterday, my first time visiting this place after hearing about it for years. Atmosphere was good. People eating at most of the tables, including some of the ones right in front of the beers I was trying to look at. Service was great. I was asked if I needed help twice and the woman who checked me out could not have been nicer. Quality was great. Food looked top notch, even though I didn't partake this time, and the beers all were high quality offerings. Selection was great. They have a ton of beer packed into a small place. I was able to find two Almanac's I had been searching for so that was a welcome surprise. No food this time but it looked awesome from what I saw. Prices were more than reasonable on most of the bottles I was interested in. Overall a really nice bottle shop that I would definitely return to in the future.
