Pretty small, went on a Sat. evening when it was getting pretty crowded.

A pretty small bar in the back with round tables in the front, and a small place to stand near the window. Well-lit. Clean.

There are thirty-something brews on-tap, including three casks. An exceptional variety of craft brews, including some rarities are available. The bottle list is very long, though quite pricey.

I was a bit disappointed at the start, as the first beer I ordered was a beer on-cask (from Defiant - the Brandy Brown), something was amiss, as it tasted vinegary. The other beers that my friends and I ordered were fine though. They were all served at the correct temperature (cool but not too cold).

All-in-all I am certainly looking forward to returning. Location is ideal for a "pub-crawl".

Certainly worth stopping in for the great beer selection!

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.
