A: One of Bloomington, IN's hallowed halls. A place almost every IU student has been to and gotten sh!tfaced at. Remodeled in 2012, this place has lost the pool tables and foosball table and added a quite nice J-shaped main bar (no coat hooks though or outlets for your smartphone, wtf?) with TV's all over the place. Busy as all get out on a Friday/Saturday night, but what do you expect for a college bar. Very nice selection of craft beers on tap, nice regular bottle list without too much of a mark up, but the Reserve List is freaking embarrassingly expensive. Of major redeeming mark: this bar celebrates Dingus Day, and proudly advertises this on their coasters. Freaking awesome!
Q: Beer is fresh, food is good.
S: Service was very good.
S: Great tap selection. Nice bottle list.
F: Salads, sandwiches, burgers, dinner plates. Good food.
V: Everything is pretty well priced EXCEPT for the Reserve List of bottled beers. Nice price incentive to order the 16 fl oz beer vs the 12 or 5. Nice to have options though.

Ran in here on Saturday, following the first day of the Hilly Hundred bike ride. From the outside, it looks new. Modern facade, but limited parking. Inside, it's obvious the place has been rehabbed from some former establishment. Multiple bars, eating areas, taps spread all around. The highlight was the service. Jeff knew his beers and was quick to help you find one you liked. 25 or so beers on tap but nothing outrageous. The table had a Rochefort 10, Old Rasputin, Brother Thelonius, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, and a Bells Amber. All of the drafts were pretty reasonable. Lots of Belgians available as well as what they called "fizzy yellow stuff" (PBR, MGD, Bud, and the like). Lots of TVs going and lots of college kids. Overall, a decent place with lots to offer. Probably the best in the IU area.

full disclosure - i'm reviewing the *bar*. i go to yogi's to drink the craft on tap. period. end of story. i dont sit in the atrium, i dont watch the sports on the TV, i try not to use the bathroom too often and i'm too damn old to hit on all the hot chicks.
so, with that said...
great custom made bar. at the recent KBS tapping, i sat next to the guy that built the bar and had a nice conversation. he's also the bison farmer in town that supplies, apparently 40,000 pounds of bison to bloomington restaurants every year.
anyway, the bar is cool. pull up a stool and its all good. always a couple beer geeks nearby and the bartenders are friendly and easygoing. plus they pour a good beer and they pour it quick.
over 40 taps, i'd guess 20 to 30 are craft-ish on any given day. there's always beer on tap from 3 floyd's, bell's, founders, new holland, sun king and other area breweries. tuesdays you get a buck off michigan beers.
special tappings occur frequently. KBS, CBS, hopslam, batch 10,000, panzer wolf, dreadnaught... many others. good sized pours at a fair price. i think 12oz of KBS was maybe 5$ or so.
many bottles to choose from as well. many of them craft.
go to yogi's, grab a seat at the bar. be happy.
