Visited before and after the Buffalo Brewfest. Absolutely huge bar with lots of patio space (even if some of them overlook the I-90 or whatever the hell its called). Fairly decent atmosphere, and I bet it gets rammed on gameday due to its proximity to the baseball stadium and the HSBC arena. The beers I had were pretty mediocre, and for that reason I doubt I'll ever go back next time I swing through town. They were all lacking a little something, although the best of the bunch was the (Canal) Street Brawler stout, which was passable. I ordered the smoked gouda soup, and it made a pleasing lunch. The rest of the menu looks like regular bar fare. Service was good and friendly, so no complaints there, although when I tried to order the IIPA from the chalkboard it turned out it had not been on tap for 4 days, but you know how hard it is to wipe chalk off a board... Prices seemed to be inline with what I expected.

Why do I keep coming back here? Perhaps its because its so close to the bus station and makes a good place to kill time? I've had two subsequent visits. Its still not a real beer destination, falling between two stools, with all the beer being better than macro, but worse than your average craft. Pales in comparison to Buffalo's other beer bars.

The beer is awful here. There have been numerous brewmasters throughout the years that have changed the recipe countless times. I can't even finish an American IPA here without struggling. Great place to watch a game or eat food but avoid the beers at all cost

Must visit if you're in the area. Live music on the weekends. Great, great, great food. Decent selection, rarely out of what you wanted.
