Went there on June 12th, 2013.
Selection of beers is far from the greatest. They were all served at the same warm temperature, although some styles demand something different. No water is regularly served to clean your palate, which is a must to a decent craft beer place. Bathroom would not lock its door, because of poor maintance. No food faire, just a cold cut, and cheese plate (though I must confess the spicied chorizo thing was fantastic - though I paid the price next day). And to put a cherry on top of it, this was the worst service I got in NY. Slow and very unfriendly and rude even for NY standards (it was not really busy). They should hire beer lovers, not just someone that wanted to bring home the bacon because they had no other choice in life. The girl was ok, but the gent was a piece.
Also, my impression is that most of the beers were past due date or its prime. It is hard to tell once in the US even worldwide breweries that usually have a date stamped, here they don't. And some sellers take advantage to this.
Come on, just because a place looks dirty and dark, does not necessarily is good, you may consider it is "cool", but It is really just a dirty and dark place. That some day had some merit to bring some Belgian Ales, but that is past over.
Take your business to Torst, or Gingerman with a much better selection (in drafts, bottle service and food).

A nice little pub with a welcoming feel and a fantastic beer garden out back. They have an interesting tap list along with a list of pricy rare beers available for a splurge. I was just in for a quick scouting visit but I plan to come back for a longer stay.
