This place gives Barcade a run for its money for best place I visited in NYC.

Small bar in Greenwich Village, crowded on an early Monday night, but we were able to find a seat at the bar. A couple of the patrons nearby were super friendly, and we spent quite a bit of time talking about our various backgrounds and of course... beers.

Quality was excellent, I had a smoked beer from Hill Farmstead (was stoked to see a beer from them) and I also had a Nebraska IPA which was nice and fresh.

Service was good, friendly and prompt, all I usually ask for.

Selection was quite nice. I think it was 28 taps, with great variety, 3 or 4 casks, and a lot of bottles.

Food was really tasty, I had tacos that could hold their own against most tacos in California.

Prices are a bit pricey, but ok for NYC.

Overall, an awesome spot. If going for great beer and food, I'd go here in a heartbeat. I made it here twice during my 3 days in 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!
