This is the kind of place that makes me jealous since there is simply nothing like this where I live.

A well curated draught selection of 28 beers, all were American craft-brews representing from coast to coast on my visit in March 2009. Plus cask selections and a big bottle collection of American craft beers as well as imports.

The eclectic food menu is a step above the typical pub grub and has been given nearly as much attention as the beer list. While the menu is fairly small I think it is well done (personally, I recommend the Banh Mi... delicious).

The space is small but has a great vibe... that certain je ne sais quoi. The staff is very friendly and seemed pretty knowledgeable.

Prices seemed reasonable for New York.

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!
