One of the better beer bars but not the best. The biggest problem is that it is always so crowded. SOmetimes it's impossible to get to the bar, muchless get a table or even a clear spot to stand.

The place has a great selection of tap and bottles and also has a number of local guest breweries who come and serve a selection of beers.

Beer is always cold and well taken care of. Prices are also reasonable.

Interesting neighborhood, with good fooderies all around. I would recommend but be warned that it can be very crowded.

What a great bar with an awesome selection of brews! Busy all hell when we were there but the bartenders were fast and saw us thirsty! Food and vibes in this place were great.

I really liked this place. I was in NYC on Holiday and searched it out while walking around Greenwich village. The beer selection was strong and plentiful. I did not have food but what I saw also looked good. The place is a bit small and crowed. It took some time to get a beer. Only two bartenders working and unless you have a seat at the bar it is a bit hard to get their attention. No late afternoon table service. Great pub feel and cozy. Quite enough for a good conversation. Also it had a great fire place that really felt great on a cold day. Being from the Mid west I loved the exploring the beer selection.

Awesome place in NY. We have an apartment in Queen so everytime I am in the city this is a stop. Last time I was here they had a few Other Half and Hill Farmstead on draft. I indulged as much as possible. Staff is great and knowledgable.An OG in the game.

I visited this place during a trip to New York. I was looking for a place with a good lineup of local beers that I can't get in California. I was not disappointed. The place was crowded but I still ended up with a seat at the bar. The crowd and the bartenders were friendly, which was nice since I was going solo. Its a good place for beer and conversation.

I didn't try the food, so no comment there.

This is definitively a place I will revisit the next time I find myself in NYC.

Man this place always has a great selection to choose from, but the space is freakin tiny and if you don't get in early it gets elbow to elbow, and good luck getting a beer with three lines of people ahead of you. Show up before the crowds or on the weekends.

What a great find! Nice selection of beer, local and otherwise. The vibe is super chill, low key. I've been twice, once in the early afternoon when it was quiet yet still happening and another time just before dinner time when the place was quite full. The service was great and the people there really try to tap into your likes and dislikes. The selection was quite varied and they definitely had something for everyone. I highly recommend, plus it is right next to Murray Cheese and the pizza place at the corner was really really good!

Has a pretty decent selection - almost 30 selections on tap. Wasn't entirely impressed with the selection though. Was a little bit crowded even at 5:30. The tacos pork tacos were absolutely amazing - best tacos I've ever had. Worth checking out but a tad bit pricey.
