Great selection with great prices and the music is always on point. This is the first place Black Note and Doom hit my lips if that says anything about the quality of beers they are getting here. Lucky to have this place so close to my house, don't come here enough.

This place is a gem. Sweet music, great beer for cheap, awesome bartenders and a few pool tables. What else do you need? I was in the other day, Two Hearted, Maharaja, North Coast Anniversary Saison, Lagunitas Pils, all for cheap. Nice and divey, and let's hope it stays that way.

Long time reader, first time poster. I travel the US every week, from NE to CA to the SE, and the first thing I do is check BeerAdvocate to find out where to find a local brewer, a place with Belgians, or a decent place to eat.

St. James is the kind of bar I would spend every day in, if it were available in the Houston area. A great owner (Michelle) who knows her beer, and knows how to keep an eclectic crowd of mostly college kids, with a few beer affectionados thrown in, happy. Two pool tables, nice music mix... just a nice place.

Tonight, they were serving Bell's Two Hearted, Avery IPA, Chimay White, Founder's Red Rye, Hennepin... some others. They had Chimay Red, a couple of Frambois' (Pomme, Peche') and the standards in bottle. Just enough variety to keep me coming back from Monday, and Tuesday, and Wednesday.

Oh, and most importantly, 3.50 pints for the domestics. Can't beat it in Columbus.

St. James is the best dive bar for the artsy crowd, period. And yet it is situated just South of Weinland Park (a rather depressed neighborhood). I am consistently surprised how packed it is, mostly by younger folks (think college age). Imagine a small two room bar, wood veneer walls and a couple pool tables with tall tables on one side, a thirty-foot bar and a few tall tables on the other The music choice is top notch.
The bartenders are awesome. They are all very knowledgeable in beer and they are beer nerds themselves. They have several varieties of glasses and they occasionally serve in the correct, brewery-labelled glass.
The selection is a dozen taps, which rotate occasionally. KBS was available here, along with GI Dominique and Chimay White. Right now they list the following: Two Hearted, Oberon, Red's Rye, Rogue's Brutal Bitter, Hennepin, Avery IPA, Maudite, GI Minx, and a few others. Their bottle selection isn't anything too exciting, but it appends the draft selection well.
