The place is beautiful, an old house that was remade into this beer heaven. Overlooking Canandaigua Lake. My favorite bar.

The atmosphere is higher-class than the dirty dive of Jose and Willy's right next door, but still good and informal. Warm. I just don't like the small bathrooms and the incredible amount of douchebags that frequent the place.

The selection? Something like 70 beers on tap! A bunch more in bottles. Arrogant Bastard, Hennepin, Stella Artois, Spaten Oktoberfest, Brooklyn Chocolate Stout... It's staggering.

Pricing is a good dollar-a-beer more than most bars. The most expensive is the Lindmans Framboise Lambic, at $5 for 7 ounces or $9 for 11 ounces. The lambic isn't sold in pitchers.

THAT SAID, the pitcher price never exceeds $14, and many are $11, and when they're trying to empty the keg you can get a big pitcher for as little as $7. Essentially, what I am trying to say is go with a buddy, buy a pitcher, and pay $3.50 for 44-ounces of beer each.

Thanks to all the fellow BA's who led me in this direction prior to heading to the Finger Lakes,a nice two story building that was easy to find.Seventy-five taps laden the bar with a big portly and very friendly bartender waiting to help you decide and willing to give you any sample of brew that you want.I have been to a few bars with more taps but this bar wins out because of the quality brews on tap like Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye and Big Bear stout,Southern Tier Harvest ale just to name a few (there many other great ones)as well as there own brews made from local Ithaca brewing,the big man porter was named after are bartender who was extremely friendly and helpful giving my wife and I samples from seven or eight different brews.We only had some Buffalo wings to eat and they were pretty good so gave the food good marks.A true beer fans bar friendly and a great selection I will not pass this place by if ever in the area again thats for sure.
