With 30+ taps, this would be the #1 beer spot in Albany if it weren't for Mahars up the road. Though, it should be noted that there are two different Lionhearts- Day Lionheart & Night Lionheart. Somebody else made this point in their review and its true. The grown-ups tend to swing by for a pint at happy hour. The day folk know how to have a beer or two or three without making an ass out of themselves or puking on their own shoes. I find that the night crowd is comprised largely of Albany law & pharmy students guzzling steel bottles of goat urine or a Heineken if they're drinking "good beer" that night.

HAPPY HOUR 4-7pm, now its $3 for most stuff and $4 for big brews like Southern Tier Choklat.
And with 30+ taps, they have a pretty darn good selection many micros, locals & imports: Southern Tier, Captain Lawrence, Saranac, Brooklyn, Allagash, Harpoon, Magic Hat, Boulder, Lagunitas, Rogue, Corsendonk, Youngs, Spaten, etc. Of course there is also the macro-swill.

For your significant other, friends, etc. that aren't into beer, they also have a full bar mixing pineapple boom-booms and things that end in -tini.

A place of extremes. Great draft selection but a dirty crowded atmosphere that is severely lacking. Good prices on the large tap selection- about 30-40 taps. Tried a Brandy Barrel-Aged Lagunitas Imperial Stout, a real B-side of a selection there.

Unfortunately, the bar is a college bro hangout. The place is dirty, small, and crowded, and infested with popped collar douchebag types. Absolutely not recommended past 8 or 9pm for this reason.
