Stopped on a fortunate day, when the IPA was only days old. You could have poured the beer in a sort of respirator device so that I could have breathed it all day and I would have been happy. Blurted out I think I like it better than Pliny.... was I in euphoria?

As for the rest of the line up, they were all solid although I also liked what I believed to be called a Norwegian Brown. I didn't have a growler and they were out but alas the bartender asked the masses if anyone had an extra growler. Into the night one went and minutes later I had my growler. This is a great place, which would be even cooler if they had a few unique or weird beers available and seems a little tiny bit pricey, but those are minor crimes when talking of the magnifitude of the mighty Livery. Will definitely go back, as I have been there 4 times already.

My wife and I stopped here for dinner and beers while on a mini-pub crawl on a Sunday afternoon. The place was not busy at all. This was our third visit here, but no review was done from the previous visits, both of which were over two years ago when the pub was located in the basement of this building. The main floor setting is much better for some pub vibe, and it also has more space (including a stage) and more natural light. The third floor is a mezzanine area that overlooks the main floor, and it provides some extra seating space. A patio is also available for those who want outdoor seating. There was a very good selection of recorded music playing, which is something that I've never commented about in any review.

We ordered a sampler flight of 6 beers of our choosing that I thought would give us a good representation of the entire beer menu. I was not disappointed at all in these beers. All of them were brewed to excess for their style, and we ended up giving them an overall score of a 4.0 rating (out of 5). We felt that the Polar Vortex Imperial Maibock was very notable, and the others were not far behind. If someone is not a beer lover, this pub also offers 4 wines too.

The food menu is mainly pizzas and deli sandwiches, but the pizza was better than I've had in any pub before. The combo of ingredients on the menu-listed pizzas (you can also build your own) was very original, and the one that we selected was the tops.

This was just a great place for for some beer and food, and we'll have to make it a point to come here more often.
