I've been here three times now in the last few months. The beer selection is truly exceptional. It has a nice British pub feel to it. I like the dim mood lighting. It tends to be ridiculously packed, but hey, you can get world class beer on tap there so what do you expect in the heart of the village?

I've have had alternately very friendly and very rude service here. Two of the bartenders here were rude / dismissive to me . I know its a busy stressful place, but when you're serving world class beer , you should treat your customers like world class customers! Anyways, I've had a few very friendly bartenders there too. I have to admit, it does turn me off though to get rude service as much as I appreciate the quality of the beer and the bar in general.

The beer selection is wide and varied, well curated. I like that the stronger ales come in a 12 ounce tulip glass rather than an 8 or 10 ounce like at some other craft beer bars. I've had some really excellent beers here. The food I'm sure is good but I've only had the grilled cheese which is well, grilled cheese, so I'll just give it a 4 as "good". Overall, this is a place I am very likely to stop in if I am int he West Village and in the mood for a fine beer.

Biggest selection of craft brew on tap I have ever seen. I had two imperial stouts after trying a few: Prairie Christmas BOMB! and Other Half: We've Been Out There In Orbit.

Cool place, wooden decor, good amount of seating. Friendly staff. I got the shrimp tacos which was one of the daily specials and I was impressed.

Overall a great place if you're looking for a large quantity and high quality selection of beer. Would recommend!

My wife and I stopped in here after lunch at a vegan place down the street. Not too large, dark wood, fire in the fireplace. Very comfortable.
28 beers on tap, including three from Hill Farmstead. Two cask offerings.
We sat at the bar and had a great conversation with the guy next to us.
Service was good.

Went here last summer and was very impressed with everything. They had a few Hill Farmstead beers on tap and a pretty good menu!
