Made the trip here on the recommendations from this site. It did not disappoint. The atmosphere was nice. Worn and rustic benches/tables, an old fireplace that looks like it would be welcomed on a winter's night. The windows all swung open to allow the open air and street scene to meld with our table. Very nice.

The tap list was excellent. No macros are listed at all, just tasty craft. Maharaja, Sculpin, Hill Farmstead, etc, etc. Great bottle list as well. The food was actually very tasty. The horseradish and garlic encrusted steak sandwich and 5 cheese grilled cheese were fantabulous. Very friendly bartender, great beer, nice atmosphere. I'll be back next time I'm in NYC.

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!
