Went and had a couple beers with my drinking buddy. Bartender was friendly and seemed to know quite a few people, but the clientele seemed mostly to be Cornell students. There were about 12 taps including Arrogant Bastard, Hoegardden, another Belgium lambic, a Saranac, and a Sam Adams. There was also bottled macros. On a Wednesday night there were a fair number of people there until 12 when everyone promptly left (even though it was open another hour...weird). We enjoyed the beer and watching the barside glass rinser (can you get that for a home bar?) and there was a good balance of atmosphere and beer but better places to go for both.
