Dive bar with a strong beer selection. The bottles and cans are in a book and the two floors have 48 drafts combined. Service is a little hit or miss, but the beer selection by itself it worth checking out.

Great beer oriented pub. The staff go out of their way to find the right beer for the customer. Huge selection and they gave me multiple tasters of stuff outside of my local distro. Will come here regularly

This is the Brickskeller. They obviously just decided to rename the place and sanction what used to disappoint about the Brickskellar as the new normal. It's not a bad spot. The interior has mostly remained the same (I admit I love the basement, though it's a bit warren-y). I didn't try the food this time around. The beer selection is now at the level you expect from a small-town beer mecca. I hope that's fair. I mean that there is a large selection of not-so-rare brews: a seasoned beer nerd is not going to find many options (s)he hasn't tried but there are many good commonly-available domestic choices.
