First brought here by another beer geek at the end of the summer. I was very impressed by the selection, always rotating in quality brews, Founders, Palm, DFH World Wide Stout. Have everything from light lagers to barleywines. The service was great, even though we were there on a fairly crowded Friday night, never had to wait more than a minute or two for a beer. The food was great, as well. Had oysters on the half shell, and sampled a few other dishes which were all good. The MBA program (Master of Beer Appreciation) adds a bit of a game to the experience, and adds some incentive to keep coming back. Definitely a good place if you are local.

Had to stop by here when I was told it was rated "best craft beer in north east" I was let down.

The bar area is very small and everything seems to be crammed together, not spacey enough for my liking. The selection was good, but no where near the best selection of craft beer I have seen in NJ, Maybe I came on a bad night?
The service was ok, I was not served my beer in the correct glassware. The food was the best part and the only part I was impressed with. Not to say this place was bad or anything, but best craft bar in north east? NJ has much better to offer let alone the north east.

Forever rotating selection of great beers.
Nice bar setup, with plenty of seating.
Various dining areas, including a beautiful patio in warmer weather.
Pretty standard pub food, with a few wrinkles thrown in.
Friendly service that is good, though not outstanding.
Simply one of the finest beer bars in the area.

Great selection of craft brews and food! A bit noisy and can get very crowded. Parking is also difficult on busy nights, especially the weekends. The food is decent. I mostly come here for my MBA card, which is an awesome membership that they have. The beers are always rotating, and their selection is usually on point with the seasonal brews as well.
